2003 Pontiac Vibe AWD 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 4A)


Bought my Vibe for $200 as a Winter beater about 2 years ago from a gentleman who definitely did not car for the car. A $50 flywheel, $300 in winter tires and alot of TLC and it was back in action. Car has ran great since and is a blast to drive. Not fast by any means but the little 4 banger screams up top and handles pretty well. Its excellent in the snow on fresh winter tires and so easy to play around in without losing control. Got the car with 91k miles, now is nearing 110k. Just the initial stuff and regular maintenance and not other expenses yet! (knock on wood) Gets around 30 mpg on the highway and low-mid 20s in the city. If you need a fun point A to point B car, buy a Vibe!

Best Features

Fuel Economy, durability, reliability, winter handling, plenty of room for a 6 footer in front and back. Good sized cargo space, excellent with back seats folded down. Excellent Visibility.

Worst Features

A little under powered for a hot-hatch, passenger compartment is not the quietest and wind is felt strongly through the steering wheel. (poor aerodynamics.)
