2009 Pontiac VibeRoadrunner - Illinois to Vegas10/23/2010
Pontiac Vibe/ Toyota Matrix, call it what U want,it does it ALL.
Modern looks, reliability, and great gas milage. The GT package is worth the few dollars X-tra. Handles great, fairly quiet, great Sound system. Quite a bit of room and super handy with the seats folded down. The Tilt-Telescope Steering Wheel is another nice feature. Just like a small to medium SUV with a better ride and better MPG. Buy one, they're a well-kept secret and a real good value for the money, compared to honda and other SUV's which only do the same thing as the Vibe/Matrix, 99% of the time, and cost thousands more.
Cons: not much, a little hard for driver to see out of rear sides of the vehicle, but no worse than most autos of its type.
The vibe has been great. I have driven it about 2000 miles since purchase and have had no major concerns. However, as it is not perfect I will still include a list of pros and cons.
-sleek, modern styling
-reasonable responsive performance(with 2.4L engine option)
-Driver-selectable gear range further increases responsiveness
-HUGE cargo capacity for such a small car. The rear seats can fold down creating a cavernous interior.
-steering wheel is too far away(can't move seat closer or pedals are too close)(for reference, I am 5'11")
-armrests are tiny and inconveniently located
-inadequate lumbar support
The cons are all related to comfort. However, not one of them is enough to cause me to regret my purchase. The comfort issues only really become an issue on longer drives (over an hour).
The car drives very well and has great performance for the price. The 5-speed transmission and electronic stability control are big plusses.
2004 Pontiac Vibegot2go - Raleigh, NC06/10/2007
The Vibe has everything my family needs. Excellent safety and dependability record, smooth handling, responsive steering and braking, and room for all. It even has automatic headlights, so we don't have to worry about leaving the lights on to drain the battery. The car is off, the lights are off! Talk about easing our already over-burdened minds! The kids love the sunroof and CD player, and I love all the storage strategically placed all over the car. Nice that the back seats fold flat for trips to the nursery or grocery store, too. All in all, we just love our new 2004 Pontiac Vibe.
