I'm back...

Hello one and all Vibe owners. I'm pleased to say that I am returning to the community once again. You may recall I traded 'Project Vibe', my 2010 white Vibe AWD for a 2015 Malibu last year. Well, a lot has happened in the past year, my wife and moved to Virginia but as fate would have it, we're act...

Re: Best exhaust for a 2009 AWD Vibe

Actually Magnaflow makes a nice aftermarket catback system for the '09 and '10 Vibe AWD and Matrix. I had one on my '10 and it was perfect in my humble opinion. I bought it and had it shipped for under $500. Sound was only slightly louder than stock and it used all the factory hangers and mounts. Yo...

After almost six years of faithful, trouble free driving, it is time to say goodbye to Project Vibe. I had planned on keeping it for a couple more years and then trade for whatever suited my fancy at the time. I went looking at dealers yesterday and in the end I couldn't pass up the deal that was of...
