2005 Pontiac Vibe from North America
Uncomfortable but reliable
Around 40,000, the alternator went. It was covered under the dealer's warranty.
Around 100,000, the weather stripping on the driver's side front window began to come off of the door frame.
The paint on the preset buttons on the radio has worn off.
The car rides rough (it's at 141,000 miles now) and really always has.
The interior lighting sucks.
I personally find the steering wheel uncomfortable.
The engine is sluggish (even at new miles), but it is a small engine too.
The transmission started slipping around 100,000 miles.
The car gets around 33 miles/gallon, and hasn't decreased with age and wear.
It's annoying to drive (I don't recommend long distances with this car), however I really have nothing major to complain about. It has been a dependable, reliable car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
