2006 Pontiac Vibe 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I have owned my Vibe since buying it off the lot in 2006.
Over 269,000 miles and it is still averaging 33.6 mpg.
Replaced the manual clutch due to so e slippage at 247,000 miles, well beyond what most people would have thought a clutch would last.
Still love the fact that it came with a 110 v wall outlet style plug in the console! Can use the same cellphone charger in the house as in the car. I can't believe theses don't come standard on all vehicles.
No equipment problems other than the known PCM issue that was recalled/replaced and 3 of the 4 door handles broke off. Replacing them are cheap ($11 off Amazon) and easy to do (thanks Youtube).
Maybe I'm just lucky with Pontiacs.
My first car, a brand new Sunbird, is still going at 400,000 miles.
I gave it to my nephew 16 years ago, he has beaten the heck out of it but it won't die.
