2008 Pontiac Vibe Overview

According to some reports, 2008 will be the last year for the Pontiac Vibe. Developed in conjunction with Toyota and sharing its basic elements, including its engine and interior features, with the Toyota Matrix, the Vibe offers drivers a value-oriented five-door vehicle with the characteristics of a small SUV or wagon.

The Vibe won't break any speed records with its 1.8-liter, 130-horsepower, double-overhead-cam four-cylinder engine. On the plus side, the Vibe gets good gas mileage, in the neighborhood of 30 mpg around town and 36 mpg on the open road. The engine links to a standard five-speed manual transmission or an optional four-speed automatic.

The Vibe, which comes in a single Base trim, offers plenty of cargo space and a variety of seating configurations, thanks to a passenger seat that folds flat and a 60/40 split fold-down rear bench seat. Interior features include air conditioning, chrome-accented instrument gauges, a tire pressure monitoring system, a 110-volt power outlet, and a four-speaker AM/FM stereo system with a CD player.

Options for the Pontiac Vibe include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a keyless entry system, power door locks, XM satellite radio, and a power sunroof.
