2007 Pontiac Vibe Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 43,762 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Pontiac Vibe. The contact was driving approximately 40 mph when the vehicle stalled without warning. After repeated attempts, she was able to restart the vehicle with the service engine warning light illuminated. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where the computer for the engine and the battery were replaced. Although there was a recall for the failure under NHTSA campaign id number: 10V387000 (engine and engine cooling) the contact was informed by the manufacturer that her VIN was not included in the recall. The failure did not recur. In addition, while the vehicle was being serviced for routine maintenance, the contact was informed by the mechanic that the protective shield for the fuel line had fractured from the vehicle. The vehicle was then taken to an authorized dealer where it was repaired. This failure did not recur. The failure mileage was 43,762 and the current mileage was 61,629.

2007 Pontiac Vibe (Toyota engine). Only 1 incident, had car approximately one year. Pulling into parking spot with my daughter at apartment complex, car went into high speed mode, I really trumped the brakes and car stopped. I thought what the !@#$% was that. I had heard about mats becoming loose so I checked and I thought it could possibly be loose mat. Bought new flat mats and put front car mats in rear of car. Also, I believe when I have used cruise control, it seems sometimes that car jumps into going faster without hitting gas pedal or arm control.
