Luv it unless I'm going up the hill
By khokoomj on


2004 Pontiac Vibe Fwd 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


bought my car brand new Sept. 03, went to the dealershop and specifically told the salesman what kind of vehicle I wanted. I got a sporty looking orange vibe, I luv it unless I am going up the hill and it starts to power out and I have to shift down, great on prairie roads.
Recently, there is a ticking sound and
had it inspected & changed different things I have been told might be wrong with it, but the ticking is still there.
A GM dealershop told me it might be the tranny but I have no problem shifting or anything like that or might be a rock inside the tranny, have had no other problems with it except its gutless.
I have been told it might be the purge valve so I will change it

Best Features

The utility of the hatchback plus fold-flat rear seats. Lots of little storage compartments. Regular 2-prong electrical outlet (saves on buying special car phone charger). Great when you grocery shop and have an hour of transportation especially in the winter, your groceries don't freeze great SUV

Worst Features

The slide for the back did not hold, the optra has a nice slide divider
