2009 Pontiac Vibe 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.4L 4cyl 4A)


I waited for the AWD to return in 2009, and am happy I did. Nice, tight steering, it has more pickup than my 6 cyl Stratus, & the AWD plows through snow like a champ. Lots of cargo space and super-versatile layout. I can fit almost anything that would have fit in my Blazer. CONS: I wish the Vibe offered more options. In this day and age, it’s crazy that you can’t get power seats even if you want them! Like others, I noticed the chippy paint, but thought it was due to living on a rocky dirt road. Also, everyone is raving about the milage- it’s ok, but I think a car of this size could do better. Overall, I LOVE it! This is a great car for the money and I would happily buy another.

Best Features

Cargo Space, versatility, small size, and AWD

Worst Features

Better highway milage, more available options, better scratch resistance on the paint. I'm very disappointed that this, along with the whole Pontiac line, is being eliminated :(
