    Thanks for your reply, but your reply was to someone else, not me., as I was not talking about price. Just looking for anyones thoughts between the 2008 Honda Civic and the 2008 Vibe. Trying to make a final decision. Thanks, bob175
  • My message about price paid should have indicated that I was replying to you (msg 247), not to bob175 (msg 248) as it indicates. I must must have been tired and cross-eyed when I clicked the reply on the message below yours.

    You did the math right. It was $1000 for the trade, $2000 in rebates and another $1000 discount (plus the $3500 GM card rebate). I was told I couldn't get abs after the fact. I searched the Pontiac website for 2007's and almost all of them seemed to be either an odd combination of options or not many options. When I found one with so much of what I was looking for (the color was a bonus), I decided to buy it even though it meant driving an hour and a half to a neighboring state.

    Funny you should mention that about maybe squeezing out another $500. My friend was kicking himself for not sticking to his original $16500 offer, but I could see the manager started to resist going below $17000. I didn't want to risk walking out and having them let us go. Basically I'm really pleased with the deal and enjoying my new Vibe:)!
  • Just married and bought my wife a 'new' car. Replaced her 99' Pontiac Sunfire with an '06 Pontiac Vibe (base) with 28k miles. Red, monotone pkg. Paint has been mistreated a bit. Price was $13.6k + tax, title, lic = $14950 out the door. I barely kept to my guns to resist the extra warranty. Only wish it had an ipod input on the stereo and the ride is kinda rough... I wonder if tires would make much difference in that. Her Sunfire had more comfortable seats. But the stereo sounds great playing Josh Groben's Christmas album.

    Merry Christmas all!
  • I just bought a brand new Platinum 2008 Vibe on 12/28/07 from Auffenberg of Carbondale and I'm quite pleased with the deal and the overall experience. MSRP on the sticker was $20,835. I bought the car for about $16,550 plus tax and fees. My out-the-door total price was an easily negotiated $17,750. I feel as if I did quite well and so far I really like the Vibe.

    Happy New Year

    I have until 01/31/08 to use my GM card 3k TopOff $'s combined with my $1,000 GM loyalty ($4,000 total). What should I pay for a new '07 Vibe base (manual trans. no options)?

    After checking the usual sites; Edmund"s, Kellybb, NADA, then Carsdirect, Costco or Sam's club buying service, my only advice would be to aim LOW, considering you want last year's model and dealers are bulging with inventory.

    I paid just under $16,000 in August for the exact car you're looking at. I was in a rush but felt the price was okay for my time frame. You should be able to get below this now, but I'm not sure how bulging the inventories are for manuals. San Diego.

    I'm new to this forum but would like some input, (I know I may not be happy with the answer) as to a decent price for this Vibe.

    It's basically loaded with:
    ABS
    Cargo cover
    Sunroof
    Automatic trans.
    Sun and Sound package (PCJ)
    Preferred package (PCM)
    17" aluminum wheels
    am/fm stereo, mp3 with 6 disc changer (UC6)

    I've been offered a price of $19600 with a few minor "extras" thrown in.

    Is this a great/good or bad deal?

    Thanks

    An average price for a $19800 msrp vibe is about $15800. This car will wholesale used for about 12500 in a year. An average price on the vehicle you describe would probably be in the low 17's.

    Good luck

  • WOW! I'm in the middle of negotiating for a 2008 Vibe. MSPR is $20,410. They offered $18,300, which I thought was decent, but after reading this post of a sale back in December for $16,550, I'm not so certain!!!

    The 2008 Vibe I was made the offer included: Preferred Pkg, Monotone Pkg, Automatic, ABS and 16" Aluminum wheels.

    If any others can respond, please do.

    Why would you have been certain? If you look up the value of your vehicle used 07 with average miles in outstanding condition, it barely wholesales above $13000 according to kbb.com and the other books. The Toyota matrix (on which it is) is similar. Eating $5000 on a vehicle like this 1st year is uncool (from 18300 purchase price) expecially since 09 models are out now. You want 4000-4200+ off this vehicle, especially with industry sales as they are. Get bids from 10 toyota dealers too via email (toy website) on 08 matrixes to see what they can do too. Also get bids from at least 6-8 pontiac dealers too, and see what you can work last 5 days of the month.

    Good luck

    This is a 1.8 with manual, air and preferred package(cruise, pw, pl remote entry). MSRP $17790, $890 discount. and $1,000 GM card rebate. I purchased this off the internet and had to drive 75 miles to pick up car. Am really impressed with ride and quality of car. After leaving the dealership I topped off my full tank of gas, and drove the 75 miles home never exceeding 50 and averaged 44 mpg. Now with over 600 miles of driving (half city) my total mpg is over 36.
  • I am looking at a 2009 Vibe- 1.8, auto, preferred package. AC. The price taxs license on the road is 18900.00. Do you think this is a decent deal? This will be my second Vibe and I liked the first one. I also got a quote on 2009 Matrix on the road 19300.00.

    How did you get the $890 discount? Or you mean discount from the retail sticker price? Thanks.
  • sullidjsullidj Posts: 3
    Discount was off MSRP. MSRP was $17790, discount $890, GM Card rebate was $1000.
  • How could you have possibly cashed in $3,000 on an old GM card? The limit on a Vibe is $1000.

    I believe you will find that the "old card" has no restrictions as to the amount being able to be used.
