Pontiac Vibe Gas Mileage

The Pontiac Vibe is a front-wheel-drive five-door hatchback that shares much of its underpinnings with the Toyota Matrix. The compact Vibe delivers solid gas mileage figures, with highway mileage in the low thirty mile per gallon (MPG) range.

The Vibe is designed to be a people and cargo hauler. Fuel economy, cargo room, and flexible interior configurations are the hatchback’s biggest draws.

An all-wheel-drive (AWD) version of the Vibe was available from 2003 through 2006, only to vanish in the 2007 model year. An AWD Vibe will reappear as a 2009 model (shown above), when the first major redesign hits the streets.

The 2008 Pontiac Vibe is equipped with a 1.8 liter four cylinder engine that produces 126 horsepower (HP) and 122 foot pounds of torque. The Vibe can be fitted with either a five-speed manual or four-speed electronically controlled transmission, with overdrive. The manual transmission model delivers 26 city / 33 highway MPG, while the automatic provides 25 city / 31 highway.

Note: the EPA tweaked their testing procedure, starting with the 2008 model year, with the end result being that the 2008 MPG estimates are now lower than previous years. As always, YMMV.

I have a 2006 Vibe with 48,000 miles. 5 speed manual shift. I get 39-40 mpg around town consistently. Road milage w/air condition on and cruise control, depends on speed. Believe this during a recent 800 mile round trip from Rochester NY to Columbus OH. At 62 mph, for 200 miles 44 mpg; at 72mph for 200 miles 37 mpg; at 58mph for 200 miles, 55 mpg ; at 58 mph for last 200 miles, 48 mpg.
