Pros-Love the look of the car. It handles like a sports car with the 5-speed manual transmission. It had really low miles and was in excellent condition.
Cons- Very light rear, so it is very easy to lose control in rain. Manual roof- although it takes about 3-5 min. to lower.
Vehicle that gets great bang for your buck!
2006 Pontiac VibeAmy - Stone Mountain, GA07/15/2014
My 2006 Vibe suits all my needs perfectly. I travel 70 + miles every single day for work, and this car more than does the job. I love opening the sunroof and enjoying the awesome stereo system. I've taken this car on several road trips and never had any issues with it whatsoever. It can store a LOT of luggage, especially if you fold the back seats down. I travel with my 68 lb Border Collie and a lot of musical equipment (speakers, mic stands, instruments, etc) and never struggle for space. I have also towed two 8-foot ladders at once by folding down all the seats except the driver's seat and they fit comfortable within the length of the car. All of my friends and family continue to be impressed with how versatile this vehicle is!

2008 Pontiac VibeTerri - Rockledge, PA07/11/2014
A consumer report top pick, it's roomy, reliable and fun to drive. It handles well with great acceleration and smooth shifting up or down. It gets excellent mileage, 35 mpg with a full load and the cruise set at 70. My friend also owns this same car and I bought mine because of how much I liked it.
