I hope "olympic" can update us regarding his Vibe taxi fleet in Saskatchewan.

I just finished corresponding with Olympic and he has 2 of his 3 Vibes still in service and the one that he retired he estimates had over 500,000 km (300,000 MILES)! It has been his experience that the 1ZZFE engine begins to consume oil around the 150000 mile mark.

Flipped 30k while the site was down. Haven't filled up since, so I can't be much past... For the past two years I have had a company van, so I don't put many miles on the Vibe.

144k on the 03 base, runs like new. Bought her with 143k last week. Love this car! Now I just gotta find a 6-speed GT for myself. Maybe a Matrix so we're not too matchy.

2004 Vibe with 61,000 miles. Running great! No major work. Only had to replace the windshield so far after a giant rock, flipped up by a semi in front of me, broke it.

Our 04 GT has 37k miles on it now, bought it with 34,900 a little over a month ago.

A local cab co is using Vibes for Taxis here in Wichita. He sold one earlier this year with 269K on it and knew another Vibe owner with over 500k on hers.

That happened to me too. It was a large something, maybe a rock or large chunk of concrete as there had been a passing cement mixer. It was spinning and flying straight toward me. There were a lot of cars all around, so nothing I could do to dodge it. It was traumatic.

21Rouge, thanks for the Olympic update. Being another mileage monster, I've been curious about him.

My '04 is just shy of 356,000 miles. I guess that would be about 573,000 kilometers?

And I just purchased a 2009 GT, Red Hot Met., AT w/8 miles that "seems" to be a better car. Hope it holds up like the old one!

I just went past 115,000 miles! It just shows that if you take really good care of something, it stays nice. People are always amazed when they find out what year and how many miles are on it lol. Even the paint is in beautiful condition, due to my ocd style of waxing every other month.

Just joined the site, own from new a 2003 Vibe, base, 5spd, power package. Now the odometer has been stuck for 2 weeks at 299 999 kilometers (roughly 188 000 miles), looking to find a way to either reset the odometer or get it to ''flip over''
