The Pontiac Vibe continues into 2008 as one front-wheel-drive hatchback model, with very little changing from the 2007 model year. The Sun and Sound Package now includes a six-disc CD changer, and a tire pressure monitor is standard. A complete redesign is expected for the 2009 model year.
Economical versatility; fuel economy.
The 2008 Pontiac Vibe continues to offer a youthful mix of versatility and practicality. Nearly 20 cubic feet of space resides behind the rear seat, with 54 cubic feet on hand when the rear seat is folded down. At 33 mpg on the highway (using the EPA's modified 2008 ratings), the Vibe ranks as one of the most efficient vehicles in General Motors' lineup. Reliability has been above average over its six-year run.
