17 March 2007Edit

This article incorrectly implies the Vibe is a General Motors designed vehicle, with the Toyota Matrix being a copy. It even states that the Matrix is assembled in Cambridge because of NUMMI capacity issues. In fact, this is a Toyota designed vehicle based on their MC platform. NUMMI produces a higher volume of Corollas than either plant's Matrix or Vibe volumes. Any objections to some edits? (Moike 15:31, 17 March 2007 (UTC))

Second GenerationEdit

After more info, I think a second generation marking should be made on this page.

MergeEdit

It was suggested on November 19, 2007, that this and the Toyota Voltz article be merged. Since the originator of the suggestion never posted here and it's been over five months with no responses, I removed the merger template box.--Flash176 (talk) 15:18, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Manufacturer/AKAEdit

PrinceGloria, please go read the Infobox conventions. The Vibe's manufacturer is Pontiac, not the NUMMI plant. Also, no one ever agreed that the Matrix/Vibe were related. Please read this discussion again. You are the only person who contended that the Matrix and Vibe were related and not AKA.--Flash176 (talk) 22:56, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Vibe GT-REdit

I've removed the section on the Vibe GT-R because it's neither notable, nor encyclopedic. All manufacturers dress cars up with "bolt-on" items for shows. The GT-R is nothing special.--Flash176 (talk) 17:40, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

I disagree. It is notable under the WP:Notability guideline, so it is encyclopedic. As for the claim of all manufacturers making show cars, that isn't even a relevant inclusion criterion. Therefore Vibe GT-R should stay. - Jacob Poon (talk) 23:00, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
WP:Notability refers to whether a topic merits its own page.
As I said, there is nothing special about the GT-R. It's simply a Vibe that GM threw some parts on. There is no good reason to include it in the article.--Flash176 (talk) 04:28, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Just because you don't feel it is special does not mean it should be excluded. Wikipedia:IINFO does not cover concept vehicles.

Ended in MY 2009 or 2010?Edit

The last production date is listed as August 2009 but it also repeatedly says MY 2010. My understanding of model years (as a non-American) is that MY 2010 starts somewhere around August-October 2009 but can be as early as January 2009 in exceptional cases. Did the Vibe get a major update for its last few months slightly earlier than normal? Were the last vehicles licensed as MY2009 or MY 2010?  Stepho  talk  21:19, 22 June 2018 (UTC)

From what I've seen there was a 2010 model year for the Vibe. There are some listed for sale on AutoTrader, and it's listed on other US sites like Edmunds and fueleconomy.gov (although that doesn't prove the model was available - just that the EPA tested and certified it). Since production ended in August 2009, they are rarer than the 2009 model year Vibe. ---Vossanova o< 15:55, 4 October 2018 (UTC)

Grey MarketEdit

In August/September of 2016 I was in N'djamena Chad. There were a handful of Vibes in the city. I can only guess they were low cost possibly of the bankruptcy and drive train repairable due to the Toyota drive train. I searched online and can't find any references — Preceding unsigned comment added by Timrbb (talkcontribs) 17:37, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Grey market cars can end up almost anywhere. It's so random and arbitrary that we can't really say anything besides "they can be imported into almost any country in the world." Which of course is practically meaningless and not worth mentioning on every single car article.  Stepho  talk  22:56, 3 October 2018 (UTC)

Proposed merge of Toyota Voltz into Pontiac VibeEdit

Toyota Voltz is a stub; this article is already linked in Pontiac Vibe and can be moved in its current state SteveCof00 (talk) 08:04, 12 December 2019 (UTC)

Agree - seems uncontentious so will merge.Warren (talk) 16:13, 19 April 2020 (UTC)
