We bought the Vibe because we no longer
needed a mini van; all the "children"
were college age and had their own cars.
We wanted something smaller but that
could haul tons to colleges and
apartments. The Vibe has fit the bill.
Our Vibe also has worked well for
Cargo space, folding front seat, easy to
handle rain or shine
Paint around door of interior tirm is
chipping, cargo area scratched easily
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
Fold down seats design, I can carry an
8' ladder and my wife can still ride
hatchback and hatchback window design, I
can carry 10 goods safely.
Needs a better horn, I added one to the
existing wimpy one-tone horn.
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.
Moon roof, outside temp display on
dash, power everything!
I tell ya I was a little sceptical of
buying another american car but I
figured since it's basically a Toyota
we couldn't go wrong. I've really come
to enjoy all of the great features of
the car. 15000 mls later and
absolutely no problems!
Flip-forward passenger seat is
priceless with a newborn. It handles
very well for its class and has ample
power. Also, love the a/c vents:
amazingly simple yet work perfectly.
More sound insulation is needed in the
rear with all of the plastic. At speed
you really have to crank up the radio
to hear it. Ergonomics of the
passenger seat make you feal like
you're sliding forward all the time.
Don't get me wrong we love the car!
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
