R.I.P : Pontiac Vibe
The Vibe is dead after all.
It was scheduled to be the only Pontiac available to the public for 2010, but it will stop being produced this August.
That means no 2010 model at all. No 2010 Pontiac of any kind available for sale at all.
The G6 will still be produced unto the next year for fleet sales only.

Must be GM bagged the contract with Toyota…Toyota should just badge this car their Matrix since the Matrix is one ugly goofball car.
Vince, GM was forced to pay off NUMMI, Toyota to back out of their two year deal contract with our money the government gave them! How does that make you feel?
WRONG. The 2010 switchover at the Matrix/Vibe plant happened months ago, and 2010 Vibes started hitting lots back in very early spring…and are now all over, with some 2009's mixed in. This is how Pontiac would "continue into 2010", essentially, because it already was in 2010 due to the Vibe's early switchover, months before the announcement.
So, there are still some, and they've been out for a while–check any Pontiac lot near you.
This is just another example of U.S. funds going to other countries companies needlessly! Toyota was paid off by GM to end their 2 year deal with money our government paid them which came out of our pockets through taxes we pay to the government! This just pisses me off to no end!!!!
Toyota should "overtake" the NUMMI plant and build the Yaris HB/sedan there. One of the few models not produced in North America from Toyota.
Hey Vince, By the looks of this Vibe picture, I believe a better title for this piece would be 'Pontiac Rest In Pieces'!
Too bad they don't badge it as a Chevy and keep selling it.
Oh well, it won't be missed.

Dude, shut the hell up. You are an idiot.
Toyota has MANY plants and operations in America as does Honda. All the profits aren't going back to Japan.
It does seem appropriate that the last available Pontiac NOT be a rebadged Toyota
9:21AM post, It's assholes like you who are letting this country go to hell and accept it without a care in the world. Do you even realize were your taxes go to? I guess you don't have enough brains to realize what exactly goes down in big business on a daily basis because you are too busy keeping tabs on all your favorite sports teams from day to day just like all the other brainwashed Americans!
