2004 Pontiac Vibe Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 10 reviews
Built by Toyota, the 2004 Pontiac Vibe shares similarities with the Matrix, but this compact SUV/sport wagon is aimed more at active outdoorsy types who need plenty of storage flexibility to carry anything from surfers to surfboards. There are few changes to the 2004 Vibe, aside from a new XM satellite option. The optional 17-inch tires are now all-season.
The 2004 Vibe seats four to five passengers and carries up to 54 cubic feet of cargo inside. A roof rack adds more space, and the cargo area features rails with tie-downs. The front passenger seat also folds flat for objects as long as eight feet, and the seatback can be used as a front row table. The sporty Vibe is aimed at the youth market, so although none of the three trims come with many standard features (power windows and locks, keyless entry, cruise control are all optional), they do come with a CD player. A 6-CD player is optional.
The base Vibe features a 130-hp, 1.8-liter I4 engine and comes in front-wheel or part-time all-wheel drive. The AWD Vibe only gets 123-hp, due to its extra weight. The AWD comes only with a 4-speed automatic, while the base has a choice between that and a 5-speed manual. The more powerful GT has a 180-hp, 1.8-liter I4 matched to a 6-speed manual. It also adds a leather-wrapped wheel and aluminum wheels and is customizable for tuners. ABS brakes are standard in the AWD and GT, but not offered in the base. Other options include side impact airbags, a navigation system, and a sunroof. Late in 2004, a supercharged version of the base I4 engine becomes available. Owners of the 2004 Vibe say it's very roomy, with excellent cargo versatility and plenty of headroom. They like the way it handles, its sporty looks, and the great 27/34 mpg as compared to other SUVs. They do wish it had more power and pickup, and complain that it can be noisy and the plastic interior shows early wear and tear.
