A station wagon produced by Pontiac.  New for the 2003 model year, redesigned for the 2009 model year, production ended in August 2009 with the last models being of the 2010 model year.  Available in base model, AWD, and GT.

The Vibe was co-developed with Toyota as a station wagon version of the Corolla and based on the Corolla's "E-platform".  The Toyota version of the Vibe is the Toyota Corolla Matrix, as the window sticker read, usually just referred to as the Toyota Matrix.  Toyota sold a right-hand drive version of the Vibe in the Japanese market as the Toyota Voltz from 2002-2004.  Manufactured by the joint Toyota-General Motors venture New United Motor Manufacturing Corporation (NUMMI) in Freeport, California until the venture and the Pontiac brand were discontinued in General Motors' bankruptcy proceedings.

The Pontiac Vibe is the subject of the forum GenVibe.com with over a half million posts as of the beginning of 2012.
