After 2 years and 40K, no regrets!
By snowdog_ix on


2009 Pontiac Vibe 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Bought this car new from a dealer a couple of years ago. I am 6'4", and I loved the headroom/interior space in this vehicle. I am a single father and was looking for value, reliability and gas efficiency. After a couple of tanks of gas driving in the city, I realized I was getting 7L/100km. Awesome! I am over 40K now and have only had it into the shop for 2 recalls. It has never let me down. It is not super powerfull on the highway. (slow going up a hill with the kids in the back) But I will trade that for the gas mileage I get any day. On-star in-car phone was interesting for the first year, but I let it expire because I didn't want to pay the fees.

Best Features

Interior space/headroom. Well laid out interior. Gas efficiency. Reliability.

Worst Features

Needs a more durable paint job. There is no corrosion yet but the paint is very prone to scratching.
