Pontiac VibeI have owned a 2003 Vibe now for almost four years. I have had no problems except for the Continental tires which went bad (cupping) at about 20,000 miles. Otherwise, it has been a very reliable and economical car. I especially like the versatile layout of the hatch and the seats. The position of the steering wheel is a little awkward for some, and the engine can be noisy under acceleration. If you can live with these drawbacks, I think it would be a good choice, especially for runabout type driving.

2004 M&T Base model owner here...I have 482,000+ miles on my Vibe. Original engine, original auto rebuilds. Its a shame GM killed Pontiac. They need to re-badge the Vibe as a Chevy.
