"I'm 6'1" and my wife is 5'6". The car is designed for her frame, not mine. In 85000 miles nothing to complain about. Start it up, it gets you where you're going."

"In 170,000 miles nothing went wrong with it. I changed the oil every 3000 miles, so maybe that helped make it so good under the hood. I was getting 33 miles per gallon most of the time. (until I totaled it) My only complaint is the road noise. The body did not effectively keep out road noise, making it difficult to listen to the radio or to passengers."

"THE VIBE IS THE BEST CAR I'VE OWNED - EVER! By Sunshine on Sunday, September 7, 2014 I bought my VIBE in August of 2005 and it's been a little over nine years now that I've been driving it and I love it! I've only had minor things go wrong with it in that time-frame and I make sure the oil and filter are changed when it needs to be done plus I check the Car Manual also for the things listed that need to be checked at different intervals and everything is working GREAT! I'm very pleased the way the car handles on the open road. It's been a GREAT CAR to drive compared to some of the other vehicles I've had in the past. I guess I take better care of this car I have than I did the ones in the past."

"I bought the car new from a local dealer. It's been a great car, good gas mileage, can fits lots of stuff in it, comfortable to sit in, love the reclining passenger seat to nap in. Had it serviced at the local dealer I bought it from with great results, they take care minor of warranty items and tell me afterwards. Handles well on curvy mountain roads, nice passing gear for tight spots. Great visibility of surrounding vehicles."

"Am the original owner. Kept in garage most of life. Has had no problems. Have gotten as high as 43 MPG!! It likes 10% Ethanol it seems. Wish Pontiac was still in business and selling them. Only drawback was the roof rails that you can't remove. Dealer said you have to remove the headliner and a whole bunch of work. So still on the roof. Have the moon and tunes option, but only had roof open a couple of times. Didn't really want that, but wanted the upgraded radio. GREAT CAR for the money."
