2005 Vibe for sale

Post by eread » Sat Sep 16, 2017 12:19 pm

This has been the most dependable car i've ever owned. She has 211K of completely trouble free miles and then I heard a very slight groan, so at 211,228 she had a front wheel bearing replaced. Other than brake maintenance, belts and oil changes she's taken nothing but gas and given back many years of great use. I am in Wisconsin, near Appleton. Has a small spot of rust bubbling the paint above the windshield of all places.

I've attached a link to the craigslist ad if anyone is interested. If she didn't have to sit outside in the cold WI winter, I'd keep it for all my running around.

not a vibe :) I really didn't want to sell it, but she's sold now to a local person. We're still 2 years out from building a new garage and if I had the space to keep it inside I would have. But as it was, I was only driving it 2 days a week when I didn't have to take the kids somewhere. We bought a new F150, so much different than the vibe. But needed something to tow camper/boat. We moved all the car seats over to that, and I wasn't going to keep flipping the seats around every day so the car mostly sat.

I wanted to be the guy that took that car to 300K, but I'm sure the new owner will with not much more than some gas and oil. I love my new truck and I've never felt bad about getting rid of a car before. But I do with this one.
