2003 Pontiac Vibe Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

We are very pleased with our vibe the
gas mileage was a major factor in
purchasing our vehicle, with the prices
always seeming to rise. Very
comfortable and plenty of storage room
for a trip.


Best Features

The in dash outlet to charge my camcorder and laptop computer are a very a convienient feature. And an oil filter that's easy to get at to make oil changes simple without raising the vehicle.


Worst Features

Good thing for standard air because when the rear windows are rolled down you get a loud drumming sound like you might have a flat tire. The stereo also when it is bright outside is difficult to see the display.

2003 Pontiac Vibe Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

It is a tough little work car that is
cute and fun to drive. I am a big guy
(6'-1/2" & 245#) and I am totally
comfortable with the leg and head room,
even the back seat has more room than is
typical in a compact car. It has
adequate acceleration and very quick
handling characteristics.


Best Features

Fold down seats design, I can carry an 8' ladder and my wife can still ride with me; hatchback and hatchback window design, I can carry 10 goods safely.


Worst Features

Needs a better horn, I added one to the existing wimpy one-tone horn.

Review

I have had mine for 4 months and I
only have found one thing that I do
not like about it; the visors are too
short to do much good on the side
windows. I am 5'4'' and maybe a taller
person would have better coverage. But
I LOVE the car and I am totally happy
with it. Especially the 29-30mpg that
I get with a combo of e-way and back
road driving. I drive about 25,000
miles a year.


Best Features

Moon roof, outside temp display on dash, power everything!


Worst Features

Make the visors more useful!

Review

We love our Vibe. It's fun to drive,
great fuel economy, we are gald we got
the "moon and tunes" package. I put on
after market tires and wheels to
enhance the appearance. It's everyones
favorite to drive in our family. We
highly recommend it or the Toyota
Matrix.


Best Features

Fun to drive and fuel economy


Worst Features

Make the roof rack an option. We don't need it.
