"I have owned my Vibe around 6 years. As far as mechanical issues have not had nothing big so far, just regular stuff (alternator, baterry, belt, headlight bulb, etc). I love the convenience of having extra room for cargo if needed. I have not had the need to use the top rack, but is nice to know is there."

Great Car!

"This car is an amazing starter car and perfect over all. It's amazing in the snow due to the fwd and is a great gas saver, only con is that it's not a speed demon. I highly recommend this car, your only expense will be replacing the headlight bulbs time to time. Never had any problems with it!"

awsome car, battery lasted 9 years, kept outdoors.

"I do alot of driving.....and this car has kept up with me. I never have major problems....upkeep like tires, brakes, oil,no big deal. In an accident, it was a tank in terms of protection! I just want another one!!!"

Pros: "Toyota reliability in a Pontiac body"

Cons: "road noise, some rattles"

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

"overall the most trouble free car I've owned in 38 years. In the 9 years I've owned this 2003 Vibe, only had to put a battery in it, and one set of brake pads. I would rate it 10/10 overall except for the following...a bit noisy on the road at speed, not the most powerful - but will cruise at 80mph without effort, a few rattles and such, paint on the hood chips easily, A/C a little weak for fast cool downs, but will keep up once cooled. However the good far outweighs the bad. Versatile - will carry just about anything you want, Easy on brakes and tires, easy on gas, doesn't rust. Easy to do your own oil changes. Seats are comfortable. Good sound system. and it has a SPARE TIRE! Hugs the windy roads well. Goes great in snow with good all season tires or snow tires on front. These cars, and their Toyota Matrix counterparts hold their value well."
