well, been there and came back. Did see one Vibe, couldn't tell what year/variant
Fairbanks is a small city, quiet in March, should have known better but got caught off guard at how many things closed early in the winter, or for the entire winter. During the day, spent more time and money than I should have looking for a restaurant that epitomized the area/culture, but the area and culture are not epitomized by cuisine, and would have been better off just cooking in the hotel. Went out of the city each night to a couple of nearby domes (round top mountains) and saw some good auroras, which was the main reason for us going, so the trip was a success. The ice carving competition was ongoing while I was there, those were truly impressive.
Being from the mid atlantic and seeing how we react here to winter road conditions, I was worried about getting around. Hadn't snowed there for may be two months. The roads were a mix of clear stretches and some with snow packed into ice, but the sand/gravel they spread made for sure footing. Easy enough to drive around there, rented a subaru forester, but I think any car with good snow tires would have been fine. Only got the subaru's ABS to kick in when I deliberately tried to do so.
