It has a hesitation, a miss, a delay in acceleration, a hiccup after stepping on the gas .it is obvious to me all the time and there to catch my attention whenever I try to go. It's not a shift issue, shifting up & down is fine. The problem is: step on the gas at 20 mph it dips its nose then goes, or step on the gas at 30 mph it dips its nose then goes, or step on the gas at 40 mph it dips its nose then goes, or step on the gas at 50 mph it dips its nose then goes, and so on. Kinda been snubbed by my dealership's service department on this, not sure if their problem, GM's issue, or what.
Other than the above problem, zippy, dependable, and a good commuter car. GM, you should keep this model, just put the Chevy emblem on the front and back.
After 7000 miles, I'm good with the Vibe. I'd love to locate a Vibe repair facility that will work the acceleration issue for me.
