Pros: "This Toyota in GM clothes has been a very good car"

Cons: "Have to use GM for recall work"

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

"This Toyota in GM clothes has been everything I expected. Aside from one problem that left me stranded due to GM not having recall parts available this car has been as reliable as I expect a Toyota to be. Very good fuel economy as well as lots of room for cargo. If it didn't carry a GM moniker I would enthusiastically recommend this vehicle to a friend."

Pros: "Great bang for the buck"

Cons: "Not fast or fancy"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I have owned my 2006 Pontiac Vibe since new. I've owned 7 cars in my lifetime, and this is the first that I can say I've encountered NO issues with. It's been a joy to own. It's not fancy or fast, but it starts right up every time, gets great gas mileage, and has been an outstanding return on my investment."

"Reliable, can get 2 live Christmas trees in it with the seats down, goes like a little tank in the snow. Still has the ORIGINAL brakes and they are still good now 10 years of driving it. Great gas mileage, comfortable for a short person, good visibility, I love this little car."

Pros: "No problems at all in 8 years daily driving."

Cons: "'A' piller design blocks too much view."

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

"1st time for me that the muffler & pipes have lasted beyond 400,000. Excellent highway cruising rpm. Since this now deleted GM car that is part Toyota Matrix, I asked GM to provide a Chevy replacement. And the Trax is the next best vehicle."

Pros: "easy to maneuver, great gas mileage, looks good"

Cons: "hatchback floor is plastic and very slippery"

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

"I bought this car because all the seats fold down and it has a hatchback - can haul smaller items. I get 28mpg in town and 35mpg on the highway and I have a lead foot. I can't imagine why they no longer make this car. Newer cars don't perform this well. Other than routine maintenance, I have had only one problem and that was with the computer relating to the transmission. There was a recall later. The car is dependable, easy to drive and has lots of zip in the engine. I like it's flexibility the best. My granddaughter has her eye on it, but I may keep it and we may have to get her something else!"

Pros: "Fun to drive, good gas mileage"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Have driven this car for seven years. Had no major problems. I chose it because the driver 's seat fit me well and could be adjusted. With the seats folded I can haul a fair amount of goods. The only reasons I wouldn't give a 10 on everything is the fan has a click when it is not being used and my husband is not easily able to get in and out."
