Great runabout car. by Largesarge from Western NY on 02/20/2011. Trim: 2008 Pontiac Vibe Base, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Lots of usable space inside for it's size. 30 mpg overall. Easy entry and exit. Comfortable, upright driving position. Made in USA. Zero problems or issues in 3 years of everyday driving. Fun to drive. Good driver visibliity due to high driving position. Lots of room for large (6"4, 300 # ) driver. Fold down front passenger seat allows long items to be carried inside. Terrific runabout for suburban or city driving. Nimble handling. Good resale value. Easy to get parts since many are Toyota parts..
Cons: A bit of engine noise on long trips at 70 mph, but great gas mileage compensates. Not great in snow due to the wide tires. Styling is quirky; you either love it or hate it. Adequate power, but great gas mileage. Could use a bigger gas tank (only 13 gallons). Orphaned by Toyota and GM, but a great used car. .
Overall review: Zippy, handy, fun to drive car. Wish GM and Toyota hadn't discontinued it, I'd have bought another. Now must buy Matrix, which is not made in USA. One of the best cars I've ever had, and I hate small cars.
