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!
Affordable used car with no money down.
2010 Pontiac G6Donta - Los angeles, CA07/14/2014
The Pontiac is no longer in production, there are quite a few recalls for all Pontiac models. In 2012 I walk into CarMax looking for a deal with no money down. The employees at CarMax are very professional at their job and they all make you feel like family. After my test drive and signing my loan application, I left CarMax lot excited. I haven't owned a car since my last accident in 2007. my first impression of the Pontiac was out of this world. A powerful 3.5l engine was exactly what I was looking for (even though I couldn't get my dream car V8 Camaro do to shortage of credit points.) A few months later I noticed some problems with the vehicle a few trips to CarMax and GM its all the same. Its now 2014 and problems are current.
Practical, simple, affordable fun
2010 Pontiac VibeMarion - Palm Bay, FL07/26/2014
-Preppy 2.4L with ample torque
-Feels agile when driving
-Enough space for a family of 3
-Lots of room under the hatch
-Toyota Powertrain = longetivity
-Cheap to maintain
-Sub-par gas mileage for 2.4L engine compared to similar vehicles
-Low horsepower tradeoff vs. the 1.8L
-Noisy cabin above 40 Mph (65 Km/h)
-Low resale value compared to its Toyota Matrix sibling
-Suffers both GM and Toyota recalls
Overall I thoroughly enjoy the 2nd Gen Pontiac Vibe. The cost to maintain is very affordable while still cheaper than its Toyota variant. The power is lacking but the torque makes up for it in day-to-day city driving.
If you're looking for something simple, practical, and cheap to own, this is your vehicle.
Though its tenure was short-lived and it was only available in the US for a single model year, the Pontiac G8 is still largely considered one of the best American sedans produced in recent history. The G8 was first developed and produced in Australia, where it was known as the Holden Commodore. It was rebadged for the North American market in 2008, where it replaced the Pontiac Bonneville.
Since their inception, muscle cars have transformed ordinary drives into adventures. Their beefy V8 engines, impressive performance characteristics, and aggressive stances make enthusiastic owners think up new reasons to grab their keys and take their next drive. If you want to reignite your passion for driving and experience the best muscle car the world currently has to offer, you’ll need to wade through the abundant options.
