We LOVE this car. We have had the most compliments on how pretty it is. For a small car it has a lot of room. Great gas mileage with great pick up. Everyone who has driven it says that they can not believe it is "just a 4 cylinder". Love it, Love it, Love it.
Practical, simple, affordable fun
2010 Pontiac VibeMarion - Palm Bay, FL07/26/2014
-Preppy 2.4L with ample torque
-Feels agile when driving
-Enough space for a family of 3
-Lots of room under the hatch
-Toyota Powertrain = longetivity
-Cheap to maintain
-Sub-par gas mileage for 2.4L engine compared to similar vehicles
-Low horsepower tradeoff vs. the 1.8L
-Noisy cabin above 40 Mph (65 Km/h)
-Low resale value compared to its Toyota Matrix sibling
-Suffers both GM and Toyota recalls
Overall I thoroughly enjoy the 2nd Gen Pontiac Vibe. The cost to maintain is very affordable while still cheaper than its Toyota variant. The power is lacking but the torque makes up for it in day-to-day city driving.
If you're looking for something simple, practical, and cheap to own, this is your vehicle.
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. Their beefy V8 engines, impressive performance characteristics, and aggressive stances make enthusiastic owners think up new reasons to grab their keys and take their next drive. 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.
