New Member 2003 Vibe -- Lucy

I got my girl, Lucy on April 2, 2014! She had 1 owner and just under 50,000 miles. We've replaced her headlights and some other minor cosmetics. Such as LED interior lights, Weathertech cargo mat, tires, cargo organizers, etc.

I'm looking to get her some new "updated" aftermarket sexy wheels! Any suggestions?

I've been reading through some of the other member posts regarding noise and rattle, etc but I have to say Lucy has been on several trips across and out of state and we've not encountered any such rattle or noise.

Wow, I think she looks fine just the way she is. Great purchase.

Thank you Caretaker! I traded our Suburban, that we had for 14 years and raised all 4 of our kids for this sweet lil girl :D to utilize the fuel efficiency ... while I was traveling 97 miles a day to work! Now I'm traveling for work less and leisure more :)

I want to get her some sexy wheels and a new Pontiac Red shield for her grill.

Lucy has honestly got a personality all her own!! :lol:

What a wonderful find - that's a gorgeous Vibe. For a 2003, it must have been garage kept with as great as the paint looks. I wish ours that sat outside all its life looked half as good as yours!

Enjoy the car and if you have any questions please ask!

Welcome to GenVibe! Wow, it certainly seems Lucy has been well cared for! She looks great! It doesn't hurt that she's the best color :cool:!

Welcome to GenVibe. Definitely one of the better looking 2003 Vibe's out there. What climate do you live in (update profile for us) as it could have a bearing on how long this Vibe retains it's new look. Visit often and get involved here :D

Well, that's a Florida tag on the front, but Florida doesn't do front tags... so, I have no idea.
