Reliable car

Car is extremely reliable and low maintenance. Decent on gas as well. Mine was a 2wd but the awd would have been a nice option.


Very dependable and reliable

This car has needed little maintenance and upkeep. People with much newer cars have had more problems.


Great running car

I was very happy with the service I received everyone made it easy to and hassle free which is the way car buying should be


Best Vehicle Ever

I have a 2004 Pontiac Vibe and it has 328,000 miles on it and it is still going. I have had a couple of issues lately and it is starting to eat some oil but other than that I am still driving it. Unfortunately they don't make Pontiac Vibes anymore. If they did I would buy 2 of them. This is the most reliable car I ever had and I feel really safe in it. Why did they stop making these?


This is the Best Car I've Owned

I honestly don't know why this car is no longer being sold. I've had my 2005 Pontiac Vibe since 2005 which is now 11 years. It has always started, even when the actually temperature in Chicago was -13 degrees Fahrenheit. I have gotten what I paid and then some. Everything still works on the car, even the CD player, speakers and radio. It is the best and most reliable as well as inexpensive to maintain. I've only changed the fluids every 4 years and gotten oil changes every 4 years. Of course, I've gotten a new set of brakes (rear and front), tires and tune ups, but that is it. Also, I've never gotten stuck in the snow...it just xxxxxxthrough it and I'm on the road. I will probably drive it until it stops running, which may be years from now considering I only have 124,000 miles. I have saved so much money and even the dealer who I get to fix it can't find anything more wrong with it. LOVE MY VIBE!!!


wonderful ride

I bought my 2004 Pontiac vibe in July 2003, now 150+ thousand miles on it. I have driven it since then and have no regrets about it. for 13 years it has been a real blessing. No major issues and best of all it is easy to take care of. If I can find another one for sale, I will buy it. Hands down, the Pontiac Vibe is better then any new vehicle on the road today.


Like new at 175,000 miles. Reliable and practical

Our 2004 Vibe has 175,000 miles and runs great. Top quality as evidenced by big and little things that are original and perfect, including shocks and most lightbulbs. Cruises nicely on the highway. The hatchback and folding rear seats swallow larger loads than you would expect. The household outlet is handy for charging phones on trips. Holds even a large bicycle in back with the seats down.


2004 Vibe

I bought this Vibe used in 2007. It had 96000 miles on it. This is now 2014 and I have over 299,999 miles on it. (That is as high as the odometer goes.) I have had no major repairs on it, only routine maintenance. I have replaced a timing belt, struts, brakes, and tires. My ONLY complain is that it is difficult to fill up with fuel. For some reason pressure builds up and shuts off the nozzle when I try to put gas into it. Other than that...! Yes. Buy this car!


Great buy, no regrets.

I bought this car used after reading reviews. It has 134000 miles on it at time of purchase. Being a Toyota built engine straight 4 engine all wheel drive and a power sun roof and plenty of room I heard that maintenance was easy on this car and cheap to insure etc... I love it, handling and suspension is great. It did have 3 open recalls when i bought it and GM is taking care of that! even better!!! I recommend this car to everyone you will not be upset! Sad news is that they are not in production with any other badge after GM dropped Pontiac.


would never drive anything else but a vibe.

I have owned a vibe for nearly ten years. This car is dependable. It took care of me when I took care of it. Would recommend it to all.
