Pros

I really love the mpg, no mechanical problems and great cargo space.  It is small but still feels solid when driving.

Cons

road noise but for the money and reliability I can over look that.

Solid Car For The Money — Not great for a long trip, due to the size. MPG and build quality are great. For a compact I liked the looks and it is actually kind of fun to drive. As far as smaller cars you can count on this is all of that. I bought a 100,000 mile warranty and tires and oil is all I needed.

This Car Has A Sporty Look To It. — I enjoyed driving this car except when all seats were being used, then it felt like it was too small. This car would make a great student car or work car because of it good combined city/highway gas mileage.

Vibe — Pretty decent car, kind of small engine though, and doesn't handle very well in mud or snow. Really great gas mileage, averages around 32 to 33 most of the time. Love the sun roof. Great car for cost, very fun to drive.

Noise, handling not crisp.

Competent. — The engine is very noisy and buzzy. The seat comfort is top notch with plenty of legroom even for rear seat passengers. Acceleration is only adequate and handling is not crisp, but adequate for most routine manuevers. Build quality is impressive.
