I adore this car. I was looking for a car that was practical for a Mom with two kids, but wasn't a "mommy mobile". The Pontiac Vibe GT totally fits the bill. It is roomy on the inside but compact and really cool looking on the outside. It gets awesome gas mileage, which was a huge selling point for me. It is fun to drive and rides great. This is the first Pontiac I have ever owned. My last car was a Toyota Camry and I just didn't feel like I got a lot of car for the money. The Vibe is a cool ride and I am proud to own it.

When I initially went looking for a car, Pontiac wasn't even on my list of cars to look at, but I gave it a shot and took it for a test drive anyway. It came loaded with all the features I wanted (except an AUX input for an mp3 player), looks pretty cool (the coupe version anyhow) and was generally in a better price range than other similar models by other makes. As a daily commuter, it's gas mileage is acceptable, but really makes up for it in the smooth ride and handling as well as the quiet interior. That being said, mine seems to produce an exceptional amount of wind noise on the passenger side, but is hardly noticeable in the driver seat. Overall I love the car and would recommend it.
The only major weird issue I have experienced and have found many, many forum posts about it online is a leak in the sunroof drains that drain down onto your seat belts. The fix is quick and easy though, so no real big headache there. If you're considering this one, take it through a car wash as soon as you can to check that leak.
One of my favorite aspects of the GT is the Monsoon stereo system. It sounds great...and I'm pretty picky about audio quality.
My only major complaint would be the incredibly limited headroom in the back. If you have short friends or kids to put in the back, they won't mind, but average height guys will be slouching down as far as they can.
If I had to go back, I would definitely buy this car again. I can see it being a solid ride for years to come.
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.
