Poll: Vibe or Matrix?

Postby VforVIBE » Sat Mar 24, 2007 10:19 am

*Matrix owners, I ask that you PLEASE NOT vote*

While on MO, and COMPLETELY minding my own business , when I saw a thread and inside was posted (among other things):

Quote, originally posted by yamcha »
One thing I can say for sure is that there are many Vibe owners who wish they had the Matrix and many who claim they don't but wish they did.

Matrix Vs Vibe

so I thought I'd ask, Vibe owners, do you wish you had a Matrix?

I LOVE my VIBE!
When purchasing, I considered a Matrix, but only if I got a SCREAMING deal on it. At the time they where the same price, and there where more Vibes on teh lots.
The Vibe looks way better. Especially the tail lights, I hate that altezza look.

i never considered the matrix, i like the styling of the vibe more (except for the 05+ front end, wish pontiac stuck with the 03/04) but i kinda do like the matrix front end. with the matrix i hate the weird flare out at the passenger doors/ rear panel

that coment (one quoted by V) is the reason i'm not on MO, i like the GV friendlyness. i cant stand flaming, i see it enough on the pc forums i'm on. i thnk that some of the MO users are just jealous of us and that the volt is a vibe rebadged

Although the nominal list price of the Vibe was a bit higher than an equivalent Matrix, the actual selling price was quite a few thousands less due to assorted incentives, better dealer discounts, and a $3500 credit card rebate. In addition:
- the Vibe is built about 25 miles away so the factory adds to the local economy,
- we could order one with just the options we wanted and get it delivered reasonably quickly,
- we liked the styling better on the Vibe (personal preference).

On the plus side for the Matrix is a somewhat higher resale value but I tend to keep cars for quite awhile so that isn't much of a factor for me. My previous car purchase was also from the NUMMI plant - an '87 Chevy Nova. I suppose the resale value of that is also lower than the almost identical Toyota Corolla, but at 20 years old and 250000 miles the difference in resale value doesn't amount to much.

only thing that would make me decide on a Matrix instead of a Vibe would be if I wanted to rice it out.

Im pretty sure that if a vibe owner wanted a matrix instead of a vibe then they would have bought one instead.

Some people are dense and just cant get it through their skulls that they are the same car with different body panels.

I laughed at some of those comments in that thread.

I think the 03/04 vibes look better than the trix's and at the time my vibe was like 3 grand cheaper :D id take a 03/04 over a trix but a 05+ i might consider a trix as i dont like the new front ends on the vibes.

I'm probably somewhat to blame on that thread over on MO.I started the "Vibe is best" in Vibe forums awhile ago.But,everyone knows I love my Vibe.I've never been a fan of Toyota styling.Plus that girl over at MO is probably 14yrs old.

boy V she got your undies in a bunch didn't she...
The maturity level of some are sub-par.
Got to be the bigger person and let it go or life will be really hard... wait till you own your first house and have to pay property taxes LOL that will help you mature... LOL nothing like having the government tell you how much you need to pay them to live an a school district and don't have any kids going to that school.
Don't sweat the small stuff.. it works out in the end.. by this time next year she will probley have crashed her car and end up driving a chevy cuz her credit will be so messed up that GM will be the only people willing to give her a chance at re-building her life.

ha! kev! i almost cried when i saw that thread over there! hilarious! when i read the title, i thought, 'oh boy, ok, here we go...'

BUT, as some have said here, including our matrix buddies here, the attitude between our forums is much different.

we all know that thread was part in jest, but the MO guys i think take themselves way too seriously sometimes.

I'd have chosen either a Vibe or Matrix, didn't really make that big of a difference to me. Both cool cars, and they're one in the same anyway.

Came down to price... Couldn't turn down a Toyota car that's a few thousand dollars cheaper just because it has a Pontiac badge on it.

That and the 03/04 Vibe front end is quite mean looking. Quite similar to the 00-02 Sunfires I guess

i just posted....now Larry pwned her on the age of trix owners. I dont think the vibe vs matrix should be like that flame war its just stupid. I like trix's i just picked the vibe cuz of the 04 look, the fog lights and the rims which the trix at the dealer didnt have fogs or rims (had hub caps). its all personal opinion but whatever im done in that thread, theres trix owners over here on genvibe that are awesome, they are super nice and thats what its all about, nice people meeting eachother and talking cars.

Besides it being a bit cheaper, I really have no idea why anyone would choose a Vibe over a Matrix. No idea at all. Just the name Pontiac is already a huge turn off! It's like hey, do you want a Magnovox or a Sony?


Quote, originally posted by VforVIBE »
OK, so what you're saying is:
Matrix owners are cheap,
You are a stuck up little (you're favorite degrading name here)
You hate Native Americans
and Sony is better than Magnovox

GREAT!!! I think we've all grown as a group, way to go!


Quote, originally posted by yamcha »
I used to drive a Mitsubishi Eclipse and if ever I was next to a Eagle Talon on the road or at the light, the other driver usually wouldn't look at me or would be shame faced. I don't know if it's that bad with the Matrix and the Vibe. I sure hope not.


Quote, originally posted by VforVIBE »
Yeah, I mush admit... I've looked at some Matrixes with shame...


lol that's almost exactly what i was thinkin. good one V.

I never even considered the Matrix as those sunk in side panels are not attractive at all. Did not know they were the same car until I found this forum. To each his/her own.

exactly.

after reading all four pages in that MO thread, i've come to the conclusion that she's a narrow minded little girl (that probably has everything handed to her and doesn't appreciate any of it, which is somethin i've noticed with a lot of asian girls). she obviously hasn't grown up yet. the fact that she's old enough to get into a club doesn't make her a grownup.

glove(matrixmanvvtl i) from MO isn't a fan of vibes. but we've talked about our cars without a single derogatory word about the other person's car, and thas how real car enthusiasts talk about their rides. yeah, he's told me about things he didn't like on my car, and ive said things i didn't like on his. but he chose the matrix for his own reasons, and i chose the vibe for my own reasons. i don't talk **** about him because his is the toyota version of the car, and vice versa. ask him and he'll tell you that he wishes his trix had the fender flares from the vibe (but you didn't hear that from me)

and v's other comment on there about the matrix owners wantin a viper, vette, or lambo was great. that was one of the few things v said that the other girl didn't argue with, because she knows it's true

why is there not an "I like both equally" option? I would be more than satisfied with either car. and the reason that I ended up with the vibe over the trix is simply because my Dad picked it. lol. and I would've been just as happy having recieved a trix.

......but I do like the design of the Vibe a little bit more lol

I don't think this applies to me, cause I already own the Trix. But I did pick it over the Vibe cause it was more my style w/ the sheet metal.

I personally have nothing against Vibe owners cause I feel we get along very well ) play nice and share plenty of good ideas.

i agree. i bought a vibe because i like the styling. my brother bought a matrix, because he liked the matrix body style. no big deal. (although he ended up getting rid of it for an outback due to mechanical probs)

its a matter of taste

whelan, you're one of the buddies i talked about in my previous post. we respect your sense of style, and you respect ours. same car.

i like how the vibe shifts crappier than the matrix. pure gold.

seriously V, that chick kept bringing up going to the club as if that was some sort of status symbol as well. i think we've all seen what kind of chicks "club" regularly...

seriously V, that chick kept bringing up going to the club as if that was some sort of status symbol as well. i think we've all seen what kind of chicks "club" regularly...

Old people? I hardly ever see any gray-haired people driving a Matrix, mostly young people between 16-35. Last night after clubbing, we stopped by a Vietnamese noodle place in Little Saigon, in Garden Grove. I counted four Matrix' parked outside along with other Jap imports. Inside the restaurant were all young Asians people who like us, were just going for a late night snack after clubbing.

It's funny she thinks only young people dive Matrixes... and that's what happens when you're up at all hours of the night clubbing... you'll only see young people.

shoot, I have YET to see a younger person driving a Vibe or Matrix in my area... the best I've seen is 40s.

Thanks for the responses on that one

I see a few other Trix's on the parkway heading home and to work, a Silver base, a blue 4WD base and someone that works in one of the surrounding buildings drives a black 4WD XR just like mine. A sliver XRS, a blue vibe (I guess it would be the same as the XR w/ wheels and such).

I actually see more Trix's than Vibes around here but I have a neighborhood girl who has a Lava Vibe, very nice color!

I love both cars cause they stand out in a parking lot.

Oh and don't let MO people know this, but after seeing some of the Vibes done up here, I could almost change my mind, almost...

As far as the age, I'm 26, not young, not old and a lot of the other drivers I see must be in their 30's+

.Plus that girl over at MO is probably 14yrs old.

She was definetly young and probably immature. Older than 14 though - maybe 17 or 19.

It was fun debating with her - only to see her crumble under the logical arguments everyone was making against her.
