Hi everyone ! I just bought a 2010 Vibe base w/ 2.4- 5 spd auto a couple weeks ago and found this website.
I live near Blissfield, MI in Lenawee Co. down in the SE corner of the state. I also have a Ram pickup and a homebuilt street legal rail buggy with a 1600 air cooled VW engine.
The Vibe will be my knock around car as I love the utility of it being a wagon that can seat 4 - 5 people if I need, both of my other vehicles are 2 seaters. The Vibe has 190 K miles but seems to be in good condition and I will probably only drive it about 5 K a year and hope to drive it for years to come. I do all of my own repairs and maintenance and being retired will enjoy keeping it in good condition.

Welcome, Jedman! I'm in the SW corner of the state (St. Joseph County), but have a brother who lives in Jackson so make trips over to the eastern side occasionally. Enjoy your Vibe! My 2003 base model with the 1.8L has by far been the best vehicle I've ever owned. We're pushing 190K miles, but she's still pulling 34-36 MPG on state highways (55-60 MPH) with myself, my wife, and two kids in tow. The reliability, versatility, and utility of this vehicle are amazing. I've hauled whitetail deer, 8' long lumber, and many, many other forms of cargo in the vehicle.

The fit and finish are also incredible — the clear coat has held up amazingly well for us, and the only visible rust is on two of the back window wiper housing bolts where the powder coat has chipped away (replacements on order from the dealer!).
