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


We bought our 09 Vibe AWD when it was a year old and had 11K miles. It has 90K, now. My wife drives it most of the time and she liked the size and control layout. The interior is nice and the seats are comfortable. We often take this car on a 4 hour road trip to visit family and my back does not hurt. We average 28 mpg. Have gotten as high as 32. It swallows up cargo. Have hauled tall filing cabinets, 8Kw generators, lumber, etc. With the higher ground clearance and AWD it gets around great in Ohio winter snow.
It could use more sound insulation. You hear a lot of road noise. New tires at 58K helped but still noisy. No major repairs, only normal maintenance items. Overall, great car!

Best Features

AWD, Sunroof, Monsoon / Kicker Stereo, Easy folding seats for cargo hauling, Low maintenance cost. We drive about 24K miles per year with only normal wear and tear items.

Worst Features

Better sound insulation. Wish they till made these. I don't like the look of the Matrix.
