2004 Pontiac Vibe by AdmRose from PA on 05/19/2010. Trim: 2004 Pontiac Vibe AWD, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Sporty and stylish and a pleasure to drive. Good fold-down seat design allows for maximum cargo space for its class. Good gas mileage (30+ MPG) and AWD is a plus. Very reliable. Engine is easy to maintain and very well designed (oil filter on bottom, spark plugs on top. Don't even need to put the car on ramps to change the oil.) 12V household outlet is a plus.
Cons: Heavily clad in plastic both inside and out. Inside plastic components are prone to breakage. Console is not very intuitively designed.
Overall review: Replaced a 2001 Aztek with the 2004 Vibe. Very reliable and smooth handling. Good cargo space and fuel economy. Engine is easy to maintain (engine is Toyota not GM). Only problem I have with it is the heavy use of plastic components inside the vehicle. They are prone to breakage. The console is also not very ergonomically designed. Overall though a great car.
