Can't believe I drive this over my 911
By Eric on


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


I needed a second car after buying a 2006 Porsche 911S. GM was giving these Vibes away and all I needed was a basic car with decent space, room for 5, and AWD for trips to Lake Tahoe in the winter. Since I bought the Vibe, I've put 3800 miles on it, and only 500 on my Porsche. I love this Vibe. It doesn't handle particularly well, it isn't that fast, it doesn't have any luxuries, and it isn't beautiful. But, I find myself drawn to its fun, comfortable, and easy to drive nature. My friends and family make fun of me for showing up in my Vibe while my Porsche sits in the garage, but I can't help from loving this stupid Vibe.

Best Features

Fun to drive. XM radio. Comfortable ride.

Worst Features

A 5 speed automatic would help the mediocre gas mileage on the AWD version. But then I compare it to my old Outback, my S4, and the SUVs I was considering and it doesn't feel so bad. Heated seats Rear speakers were too boomy so I faded the audio forward to fix it. Better rear quarter visibility
