I am on my 2nd Vibe and can't say enough about it. On the highway I get around 35 mpg. Going back and forth to work and a few other places, I generally fill up every 2 weeks, getting around 29 mpg. I usually keep the back seats down and can easily fit 2 medium dog crates and then some, in the back.
I have never had a problem with either of my Vibes. They have a Toyota engine and are less money than the Matrix.
I may get a third Vibe, because in my research, I don't find a car that can give me the gas mileage and quality for the price.
Great car, great handling, and great gas mileage. Did have one small problem with starting in the cold. Turned out to be the ignition or wiring to the starter, both were replaced. Also, would like to know what they were thinking when they placed the cupholders where they did, don't understand that one. Other than that I love the car.
2008 Pontiac G6jean - ga.06/01/2011
The Pontiac I bought is very nice, drives great! The interior is very very nice, the upolstery and trims compliment each other well. The car is the first one I have bought in 10 years, after driving my gran prix for so long I wanted another pontiac.
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.

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. Of all your four-wheeled options, the Pontiac G8 and Dodge Charger are worth a place at the top of your search list.
