I Love My Vibe. — I love my Vibe. Really a nice family, multi purpose car, simple, reliable, cute. Great Cargo space, with both back seats you can bring down, then you geta nice big and flat space , for example furniture, guitar amps and drums. Low on Gas. But its not a sports car. Though there is this button you can press when you feel a little more "wild". Forgot the name. Sort of like a "Turbo" feel to it. LOL. Over Charge I think. Neat. I'd buy another one exactly the same. Serious. I wonder why they stopped Production. Same as the Toyota Matrix. I guess that's why. And the Economy Crash we experienced.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: really a nice family, multi purpose car, simple, reliable, cute.

Cons: Not a sports car.

Fast And Lots Of Room To Haul! — It is really a sports car in disguise, very quick acceleration and great handling, will run up to 135 no problem and the 6speed tranny really saves gas, 34+mpg! I like to challenge guys in built up hondas or other tuner cars, they think I'm crazy until I blow their doors off! 180hp stock!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Surprisingly quick, sleeper look!

Cons: None, no problems at all!

Rated At The Top Of The List By Consumer Report Magazine. — I love the peppiness of the GT. 180 HP out of a 1.8L that's impressive! Hugs the corners and it's very responsive. Braking is incredible and you can put alot of miles on them. Gas mileage is in the high 30's if you baby it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very fun to drive.

Cons: None.

Economy Car — I got this from a trade with my parents. This is the reason why I was able to get my current 2G DSM. It got wonderful gas mileage and was cheap to own. Resale value was high and overall was great for the 2 months I had it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: MPG

Cons: It's a Vibe

Solid All Around — Very fun car to drive, it can get up pretty high and is easy to throw around. It doesn't break down, but it does feel beaten pretty quickly. Average looks. Sips gas and oil, but tires do go. Once again, very fun and versatile.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Solid all around

Cons: Gets beaten quick

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 5 Speed Manual

Fun Fun Fun — Performance is great I drove it like a typical US car until I read that the power curve Starts at 6000 rpm+ red lines at 8200. WOW what a difference. the car is light and sporty. 28-40 mpg is the range I have gotten from my GT. I run full sythetic oil in the engine and transmission, trans axle, K&N Filter,You can put an AMAZING amount of stuff in this car. 110volt inside plug in, passenger seat folds forward to supply you with a table. it's a bit light in the wind and on snow But I live in SD where we have high wind & cold & Snow.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fun car  to drive good mpg

Cons: road noise is a bit loud, a bit light in the wind

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Never missed a day of work due to weather

Cons: a little slow on take off

Ok Consolation Prize — It's OK. Surprisingly fast but with a weak clutch and lousy shift linkage on its 6-speed manual transmission. It has very comfortable seats, good interior space, very flexible. BUT pieces break and fall off easily. I regularly get 27 mpg in a mix of highway and around-town driving.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Redline is amazing at over 8000, it really sounds good winding out

Cons: transmission/shift linkage/clutch
