The Pontiac Vibe compact
gained cult status from 2002 to 2009 due to its sporty appearance and vast versatility. The Vibe came equipped with a four-cylinder engine as the only option—and no six-cylinder to be found.
The Vibe offers the full package: reliability, affordability, and fuel efficiency. The base 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder produced 132 hp, but upgrading to the 2.4-liter gave you 158 hp. The standard transmission was a five-speed manual, but a four-speed automatic was also an option. The one thing the Vibe didn’t have? A V6 engine. 
If you had your heart set on a V6, you’ll have to go with another
model or a different brand and style altogether. Want to know more? We've compiled this quick guide to Pontiacs with a V6 and other brand models with six-cylinder engines.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
