"Great car - 194,000 miles 11 years old. Just runs - the only out of the ordinary maintenance was to replace some intake valves. Handles nicely, good gas mileage - good styling."

Pros: "very good all around vehicle"

Cons: "rattles"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I live on a dirt road which, at times, is pretty much a washboard. I loved this car but it was getting up in miles and had some rattles I could not fix. I didn't want to sell it, but with 100,000 miles on it I felt it time. It was a great car for me and my 2 dogs, I could fold down the seats and they had the whole back to move around in. Also great for hauling about anything as the front passenger seat folds flat. Really miss this car. I did buy another Vibe, a 2009, and that one is rattling a bit too."

"This is a great little car. The interior can be reconfigured easily, the seats are all comfortable, drives great in poor weather, and the whole time we've had it, the gas mileage has exceeded the average for this vehicle."

Pros: "Good all season driving. Comfortable on long trips"

Cons: "Low mpg, elec.sys.quality low,dashboard design"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"One concern being the location of heating/AC/dashboard controls. The gear shift is too close to the controls making it difficult to use them when in "Park". MPG a little lower than expected (20-24 mpg.)Electrical system performance was rated low according to Consumer Reports. I found it to be true. Cruise control design/location poor Overall performance was good."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"I had some initial problems with the O2 sensors getting flooded, and it took about 2 years and a zillion trips to the dealer, but he finally figured it out and fixed it. Too bad they don't make this little car any more. It's a gem. I am having a hard time shopping for a new car, as I haven't found a good, economical, all around vehicle that's good on gas that can replace it."
