    Vibes Are Awesome — I love my car. It's easy to drive and gets great gas mileage. I like the fact that it's an all wheel drive that's what makes it a fun car to drive. It has an area in the back for the dogs and that's pretty cool too!!!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Everything

    Cons: Nothing

    Viberratorr — Pontiacs design improved greatly on this particular car. The performance in the 1.8 is not the best of the models offered. They're a very affordable car, only getting around 30 mpg isn't the best but it beats 15. It's fairly fun drive around with the 5 speed if u nonchalantly cruise the streets.

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

    Pros: Cheap, ok gas milage, fun, sleek inside and out.

    Cons: It's a grocery getter but it's very roomy for them late night rodeys.

    Vibe — Bought this car brand new. It's fuel-efficient, reliable, and practical. Best car I've ever owned or driven. If you have $20000 and need a car, then get the Vibe or Matrix, they're one in the same. Great car, overall, you won't regret buying this.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: fuel-efficient, practical, reliable, never breaks down

    Cons: it isn't a sports car, but oh well, it does what it does

    Awesome! — This car has great storage capacity. It is roomy enough for the whole family with extra space for the dog or the groceries (or what have you). Everything works smoothly and I think it is pretty peppy for a 4 cylinder.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: roomy and attractive

    Cons: options were expensive

    Congradulations Pontiac. — This is a really nice car considering all of the problems with it. So, I'll go ahead and get those out of the way. First off it's a four cylinder with no power. Second it's a front-wheel drive and you know how much I love those right? Alright now that that's out of the way. It's a really fun car to drive, especially with the semi-automatic transmission (Which of course is in no way remotely like a real manual) which is somewhat like what I have in my Monte Carlo. It looks fantastic and is overall a really nice car.

    Pros: It's fun to drive and looks real good.

    Cons: It's performance is not as good as I think it could be.

    A Fantastic Little Toyota In A Pontiac Badge. — This is my husband's daily driver. It's been so, so, so reliable in the (almost) 5 years he's owned it. He drives a 50 mile round trip on weekdays and it has never once let him down. We purchased the bumper to bumper warranty and never had to use it. Will be difficult to replace when he passes it on to our teenage daughter. I'm getting the feeling he's going to renege on that promise he made to her when he bought it in Jan 2010.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Gas saver, looks nice and has plenty of options installed. Really sticks to the road. It can haul a lot of stuff. We've had a dishwasher, bookshelves, microwave cart; all kinds in the back of it.

    Cons: I don't think there's anything he doesn't like about this car. He's very defensive about it. :v

    Great Car, Lots Of Options For The Money — The car is fun to drive and has been very reliable. Of course I kept up with oil changes and maintenance. I like the looks of this better than the Toyota Matrix, it's sister car. I loved subscribing to SiriusXM radio but never activated On-STAR.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: This has been an excellent commuter car for me. I purchased this from Koons Toyota for my wife but I ended up driving it everyday to work. So I am the second owner. I liked this car for its styling, value, and reputation. I understand that GM and Toyota teamed up on this vehicle, utilizing the same 2.4L engine and transmission as the Camry. It is quick yet it gets 28 MGP on the highway, and 25 MPG overall if one drives it sensibly.  I loved the roominess of the hatchback. The seats fold flat and it gives one a lot of cargo space. This car has side airbags, stability control and is nicely equipped.

    Cons: Because it is a GT, it has a stiffer ride and is not great on long drives over three hours. It is not bad, but not sure if all small cars have this issue.

    Extremely Economical — I love this car. Never had to fix anything, gets good gas mileage, cheap to buy, etc. The engine revs up pretty high for good acceloration when you need it and the brakes will stop the car fast and smooth.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: 30 MPG on average, never had any problems whatsoever, only matinence done has been changing the oil and refueling :)

    Cons: I am a teenage boy and I want a sports car.
