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.

2008 Pontiac VibeTerri - Rockledge, PA07/11/2014
A consumer report top pick, it's roomy, reliable and fun to drive. It handles well with great acceleration and smooth shifting up or down. It gets excellent mileage, 35 mpg with a full load and the cruise set at 70. My friend also owns this same car and I bought mine because of how much I liked it.
2007 Pontiac VibeVJ - Garland, TX10/20/2008
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.
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.
