2009 Pontiac Vibe 4dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Bought new in July of '09.
Base model with 2.4L/5sp-auto, PS,PL,cruise, keyless.
Now pushing 80K miles with few issues.
On my second set of tires and brakes.
My steering column rattles (very common), cold starts sometime produce a timing cam rattle (common) and the paint chips and scratches easily (common).

Fully loaded with family of 4 + gear on trip to Tenn. got me just shy of 32mpg.
Even with my heavy foot, I still avg. 28mpg in daily mixed driving.

Great fun to drive. Does everything I need.
Was cheap to buy and maintain.
Sharp little car.
I have truly enjoyed it.

I just added a K&N CAI and she sounds great, any mpg increase will be a bonus.

Best Features

2.4L, seats are plenty Comfortable, Style in general.

Worst Features

Better paint. Upholstery stains too easily.
