I bought this Vibe new in 2009. It has been perhaps the best most reliable car I have ever owned. Nothing has ever broken. Every time I fill up the back, I say to myself, "Good thing I bought truck." It is basically a Toyota Matrix with some small styling differences and a lower price. The seats are a little hard, but since I sit on a gel seat in any vehicle, it is a non-issue for me. It is also not a sports car, but it is peppy enough for me...again another non-issue. If I have one criticism it is that the window posts reduce viability. I have adjusted my habits to include a little extra rubbernecking before proceeding into traffic. The ONLY reason I am shopping for another car, is that my need to haul even more stuff has grown and I need a bit more cargo space...like a mini van. Seriously, the cargo space is amazing for a car of this size. The back seats are 40/60s and quickly fold completely flat. You just can't beat that.
