Great job Carrie.
It's been a hell of a ride! I've been kind of lazy about posting pictures and such lately, but the Vibe is still going strong and I love it as much as ever!

This past Thursday, April 11th, the Vibe and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary together! As an anniversary present, it will be getting an exterior and interior detail, along with new struts and brakes all around within the next few weeks :D!

Also, yesterday, April 13th, it turned over 88,000 miles!

So are these still the original brakes? Never completed project PowerStop ? Now that's some serious procrastination :lol:

Yes, original brakes. The main point was to acquire the parts for PPS over time before the brakes actually needed to be replaced to avoid having to spend such a huge chunk of money at once. It's been pricey, but it will be so worth it once everything is finally installed!

Wow Carrie ... you're still alive !!! You must be laid off also like so many of us are during this time to where you now have TOO much time on your hands! :lol: At least you put the time to good use and got caught up here. Now try to visit us here a bit more regular from now on.

Your Vibe still looks like new AND it's your daily driver too. Nice work on it! I've been driving the Orange 04 GT as my go to work car and the 09Gt just collects dust in the garage BUT will see some nice weather driving soon. If we ever have another meet I'll bring it. Might get new tires on it soon as they are original and one of them has a slight bulge on the sidewall. Dry Rot may start setting in also. There is plenty of wear left on them (just at 32k miles) but it's the age of them that has me concerned.
