Pros: "Cheap, reliable commuter car that can haul things"

"I'm a dying breed -- someone who likes small wagons and has driven them since 1977. This is by far the best one I've owned. Excellent reliability - can't say that I've had a repair that was unusual or unexpected in 90,000 miles. Enough acceleration to zoom onto interstates where locals often drive at 80 mph. Enough space to haul a diverse load. Great mpg -- about 28 around town to as high as 35 mpg if I keep it at 60 mph. The only criticisms are the comfort for a long trip and the outside clear coat like finish that has chipped and looks bad. That's the only reason I will trade this car shortly. Wished they kept making them. Better still, I wish someone would make a luxury small wagon without being a hybrid, or having an all wheel drive."

"I bought this 2005 from a friend and it had 190,000 miles on it. It now has 242,000 miles on original engine and tranny and runs great! Doesn't leak a thing and I'm getting 30mpg. The paint is thin on the hood and the recirc button went out but the a/c still blows cold and everything else works perfect. Great quality on these. Toyota engine and transmission."

"This Pontiac Vibe has been one of the most pleasant cars I've ever owned. Very low maintenance costs. I just drove across country with loaded car & 3 surfboards, my highway mpg was 31.9 mpg. This car has always been very well maintained. Comes with the top of the fleet "Moons & Tunes" premier Vibe options. I've also upgraded to an after-market "Parrot" brand iPod/Bluetooth phone system add-on. Has been running with all synthetic oil for 40K miles. Has upgrade K&H air filter"

Pros: "great price 8 speakers sub wof equlzer low mainte"

Cons: "minor facial damage on drivers side"

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

"I bought it new off the show room floor all maintenance was done at the dealership new tires, great mileage, seats fold down can haul an 8 foot ladder. I've even slept in the back on a foam bed with plenty of room. an uninsured dodge truck hit the drivers side in 2013, so minor damage there. (major damage to me) I've driven it all over the US without any trouble. I would not sell it now except I inherited another car and don't need two. Selling it at a rock bottom price too. only $3000.00 OBO Cash only meaning no checks money orders or promises. please only serious offers apply thanks for reading my ad"
