2009 Pontiac Vibe 4dr Hatchback (2.4L 4cyl 5M)


This is an amazing little car, its 2.4 L. engine is snappy enough to get to 60 in about 10 sec (shifting manually), plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 kids in car seats, cargo area is amazing, seats are very comfortable(and I'm 6'8") Seating position is very good,Gauges are bright, clear and well laid out, stereo is very good for stock. While shopping for this car, I tried a Nissan Versa, Hyundai Accent, Suzuki SX4, and a Dodge Caliber R/T, in the end it came down to this and the Caliber. Unfortunately GM doesn't have their act together, because this was by far the best economy car in their line up, fortunately its made by Toyota (Matrix Clone) so you get Toyota quality with Pontiac style.

Best Features

Great style, Driver side gas door, great storage, quality materials, Amazing get- up-and-go keeps pace with my old grand Prix! gauges are very nicely laid out and bright, seats are well bolstered, the center console has a split level armrest, 4 wheel abs disc brakes, cargo dividers.

Worst Features

standard 7 speaker sound system, cargo mat in back, bigger rear windows, tinted rear windows, standard alloy wheels, standard rear independent suspension, standard fog lights, xenon headlamps
