I said goodbye to my beloved 2004 Vibe today, donated to my local jazz radio station. I wanted to give folks on this forum a head's up that she'll be auctioned off though Capital City Auto Auction (Sacramento, CA). See pics attached, though note that the "scheduled date" refers to the pick up date: she was towed away this morning; I'm not sure when the auction will happen.
A little over 241K miles, runs great. Salvage title from being rear-ended at a red light, and clipped while parked. AC is broken, frame is bent. Needs a new battery. Lovingly and devotedly maintained, I bought her from the original owner in 2014, kept all maintenance records - nearly two decades worth!
I hope she can find a third life with someone who knows just how special these cars are.
