REV is pleased to offer what is certainly one of the cleanest example of a first generation Pontiac Vibe GT in existence. This vehicle has had 2 owners since new, and was garage kept and well cared for, which is obvious the moment you lay eyes on it. If you are unfamiliar with what makes the Vibe GT a special vehicle, the answer lies under the hood. This Pontiac was co-developed with Toyota (it is the same car as the Toyota Matrix), and houses a high-revving 1.8L I4 2ZZ-GE engine in GT trim. This engine has racing pedigree! Not only was it found in the Lotus Elise sports cars, but Toyota also utilized it in the sporty GT-S trim of their Celica. It red-lines at an incredible 8,500 RPM and produces more than sufficient torque throughout the entire rev-range. This electrifying motor is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox -- the only transmission option available on the GT models of the Vibe. So, while this may be an unassuming vehicle from the exterior, make no mistake -- it is a sleeper hot hatch underneath it's sheepish clothing. This particular example is equipped with the Preferred Package, as well as the Sun and Sound package. Overall condition can be described as excellent. The paint shines brilliantly like the day it left the showroom, and the plastic two-tone trim is free of signs of fade, cracking, buff marks, and scratches. The wheels are all in near-perfect shape, and surrounded by newer all-season tires. There are no major dings, scrapes, scratches, dents, or imperfections on the exterior or interior. There are however, just a few small rock chips on the hood which are unnoticeable unless viewing from a foot away or closer. Moving inside, you will immediately notice that there is hardly a sign of wear to be found. The original floor mats look new, there's no scratches anywhere on the dash, footwells, door panels, arm rests, etc. Even the hard plastic trunk liner, which extends to the back of the rear seats has no scratching present, which is an obvious sign of the care the previous owners took to preserving this Vibe GT. Everything works as it should, the Monsoon 7 speaker stereo sounds fantastic, the AC blows ice cold, the transmission is smooth shifting, the brakes are quiet and smooth, and the clutch feels very healthy. Driving down the road there are no rattles or squeaks, everything feels tight like it has never been driven. If you are looking for a Matrix XRS or Vibe GT it is doubtful that you will find a nicer one with lower miles. If you know how hard it is to find these to begin with, then you'll know not to sleep on this example! Call or text us today at 828-202-3650 with any questions, or to schedule a viewing.
