I purchased the car with 13000 miles on it, replaced th clutch at 25,000. Look everywhere. This is a major problem with this car, it is a japenese clutch that is similar to a motorcycle design adn it is horrible. I have been working on cars my whole life and never seen anything like this
09 Vibe GT Rocks!
2009 Pontiac VibeCCTraveler - Illinois09/18/2010
What a great running, reliable, and handy vehicle. Sporty, sharp looking, and dependable, great handling, and cool features. It's a Toyota Matrix with Pontiac markings, built from the same parts in the Toyota plant in California. The Monsoon Stereo /System is on par with Bose. Gas mileage is a little over 30 mpg. all-round, with the larger Camry motor that is in the GT model, instead of the Corolla motor in the Stndard Vibe. . The extra power is worth it, especially if you merge on and off of busy highways, expressways, etc. Almost like a 6 cyl. but with much better mileage. A keeper that is handy in EVERY way. Quality in a reasonably priced , does it all vehicle.
2009 Pontiac VibeTerd on wheels - NC10/18/2010
This is a great car...not the most stylish. It's a mom mobile, but the cargo room is great, it's easy to get kids in and out as it's higher than a normal car and the gas mileage is awesome. I get 32 MPG on the highway, sometimes higher. I have a 2006 and the tires that came with it were worthless, but other than that, we like it. It's basically a Toyota for a Pontiac price.
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.
