Our 2009 Vibe was bought new in May 2008, so its 9.5 years old. It commutes 14 miles each way to work Mon - Fri, with much stop and go with lights having to cycle once or twice before getting through an intersection, it take 45 min. to get to work. The car has been trouble free, except it does use oil between changes. You have to check the oil twice a month, and certainly before a trip.
I replaced the struts, brake pads, spark plugs, serpentine belt recently. As a commuter, we could keep it another 4 years. Not a scratch on the paint job, no dings, sleeps in a garage every night, but in the sun all day long in work parking lot.
Only new issue is the ignition coils are going out. First one, replaced it myself, a year later another went out. Now I am going to order two more from Amazon so they will all be new ( Delphi GN10341 for $31 each).
The Vibe has been rock solid reliable, comfortable, and the space utilization is highly functional for its size. Love the Vibe!
