I traded into this car from a Mustang simply because I wanted an automatic. The first thing that struck me about the G6 was how very spacious the interior is. You can comfortably fit 4 adults. The second selling point to me was how smooth the ride was. I can honestly say it's a joy to drive. Granted, it doesn't have the pick that my 6 cylinder had but still love it.
My main reason for watching for this model was that it came with roof rails standard, in order to mount bike carriers on top. I had no idea that it would be so much fun to drive! Didn't know it was based on a Matrix chassis, am pleased that Pontiac didn't make it feel like an americanmade model, ponderous and sluggish. It is quick, agile, handles well, good visibility, and has four-wheel disc brakes: take note any remaining american car makers... In addition to its fun performance, it is remarkably comfortable for me, a bit taller than average. The drivers' seat is fully adjustable, and steering column can be set vertically. Finally, the back seats can be folded flat, and it carries a surprising amount in back. All told, very fun, and very useful!
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!
