i really don't know what i'll be getting, depends on what the dealership i will be going to has. i'm kinda looking at a 2008 Pontiac Vibe.

the vibes are a little unexciting. you can get the same mileage and twice the power from anything with a 3500, malibu, impala, monte, g6, aura, etc.. unless you only do in town driving

I agree with jwfirebird, the Impalas with the 3500 are great cars. My parents have an 09 that I drive occasionally, and its really fun to drive. It has plenty of power, surprisingly good gas mileage for a car of its size, and the exhaust note on heavy acceleration is amazing. Plus, you can get the Impala for fairly cheap. At least around here anyways. I would stay away from the Vibe if I were you..I honestly wouldn't even call it a GM seems its mostly Toyota..

well, i may or may not even stick with GM now. i'm looking at several dealerships and the imports are looking good in my price range. i'm not brand loyal, so i don't care that the vibe is a matrix. toyotas are very reliable.

nah dakota...the girls have other things do to while i'm out car shopping today. i really wish they could go.

also, on a side note, since i have no title for the park ave, i can't trade it in. it'll be sitting in my driveway with a for sale/no title sign til it goes......and in the mean time, i'll teach my 12 yr old how to drive in it.

meh. we'll see if the right person comes along and is willing to buy it without a title. until then, i'll still be driving it since i was unsuccessful and purchasing a replacement today.
