Byerscrew Vibe Garage

Postby zbyers » Wed Nov 21, 2018 7:25 am

Hi All,

It's only taken me nearly 5 years of being on here to do this, but here's our garage! We currently own seven Vibes. Minus my two Vibes, and my brother's, the rest are totally stock.

Raven, '03GT
-270k miles.
-Tein Lowering Springs
-Progress RSB
-Projector Retrofit

Picked her up in Aug. 2015 with 230k miles. Only things that have been replaced outside of brakes, tires, etc. are the front struts (just did those), clutch, axles at 240k in Oct. 2017. Otherwise she is all original. She's probably due for new ball joints soon.

Robyn, '07 Base
-180k miles
-Progress RSB
-Projector Retrofit

She, too, is all original. Brought her home with 85k in Mar. 2014. I fixed a rust spot under the drivers seat. One of those body grommets was missing and it rotted through. She was in a minor accident in Feb. 2018 when someone ran a stop sign and dented in right above the gas fillers.

Neptune, '05 AWD
-160k miles (I think).

Mom's ride...She's all original too. What's unique about her is that she has the weird TPMS system as well as curtain airbags. However, the curtain air bags are in the front AND in the rear. I haven't been able to find much info on rear curtain airbags prior to the 2008 models. Thinking this was ordered by someone who requested them.

Mystic. '09 AWD
-I think around 90k on her now.

Dad's ride...Also all original, minus rear axle and bearing replacement. She's that weird Mystic Blue color that was only offered on the 2009 model which is part of the reason dad sprung for her.

Sol[ar]Vibe, '03 Base "Faux X 4
-260k miles
-Solar panel with auxiliary battery and isolator
-Crazy Russian strut spacers were installed

Brother's ride...Basically stock minus the above changes.

Ruby Ember, '04 Base
-180k miles.
-All stock.

Sister's ride so no fun changes.

Ray is AWD, '04 AWD
-No idea on miles. Brother bought it for his girlfriend. We replaced the rear subframe on it with one from an 2009 Vibe AWD or GT. Despite interchanges listing this as non-compatible, it fit with ZERO modifications or issues. Looks like NUMMI opted to utilize the same rear subframe design instead of investing the time and money to R&D a new one.

THE WHOLE FAM!

You could bring all 4 to GV '19. I am going to work with Nick and am trying to plan on doing GV '19 in/near Bradford since they have the Zippo/Case Museum, and it's not too far from 86 or whichever interstate connects over towards Olean and whatnot. I want to do a cruise from there to the Kinzua Bridge in Mount Jewett.

We should buy stock in Toyota parts with as many as we have. :lol:

What a cool Vibe family!

Thanks a bunch for this info:
We replaced the rear subframe on it with one from an 2009 Vibe AWD or GT. Despite interchanges listing this as non-compatible, it fit with ZERO modifications or issues.
That is sure to help somebody out there.

Wait a minute! In only 4 years you did 100000 miles with Robyn?

Yessir! March will be 5 years of owning Robyn. The wife had a 100 mile round trip commute for college and she drove it there the whole time. We also did about 8000 miles last year when we went on our cross country road trip.
