I bought Frosty in February 2006 and joined here November 2, 2008. Still the most helpful and friendly forum on the interwebs.


I find it amazing that a site dedicated to a car that's been out of production for five years still attracts new members on an almost daily basis.

That is pretty amazing. It makes me smile every time I see an introduction post from a new member. No doubt GenVibe will continue to live on for a long time to come.

6 years ago today, my mom brought her Vibe home from the dealer! As a "present", I gave it a full exterior detail (wash, clay bar and Mother's 3 Step Wax System) yesterday. It looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor :D!

YEP ! :D When you drive someone else's vehicle for your job 5-6-7 days a week, your personal vehicle rarely gets used! A Union Refrigeration Mechanic here in NW Ohio and am on the road daily going to customer sites driving a 2012 Chevy 2500 express van belonging to someone else! Been doing this for 25+ years and about to retire soon :)

I still remember running out a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty on my Kia Sportage in less than 10 months.
