2008 Pontiac Vibe 4dr Wagon (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Unfortunately Pontiac isn't making them anymore. I got a consistant 30 miles to the gallon hiway (don't drive city enough to care). Engine (Toyota Matrix) lasted 244500 miles and cost less than 3.5K to replace. Eats headlights, paint job not that good. Lots of cargo space. Original radio not so good but easily replaced. Tire sensor computer component is generically inferior.

Review

Given the snow and curving hills where I live I should have bought the 4wd model. It was with sadness I said good-by to my 10 year old car. It had a lot more to give, , had good body condition, handled well, and was very reliable until the end. The end was caused because it was failing Vermont state inspection due to the evaporative system sensors. I doubt I'll ever have a car with such good mileage, good design, and reliability.

Acceleration is not great, but not bad. Road holding is great. Just turned 200,000 miles without major repairs, mostly brakes and 2 recalls.

Review

This car has great fuel economy and plenty of power. The fold down seats and accommodating hatch allows me to put down movers blankets and haul things. The good quality seat construction and the well-designed suspension give it a surprisingly comfortable ride for a car this size. I am confident that the car will still be quite usable when I give it to my grandson to use for college in 2029!
