    What GM did not say was the module was made by GM, imagine that!!!

    If only 2005 - 2008 model year Vibes are affected, why is there an image of the 2009 Vibe?

  • Robin Doerr Posted: 8/30/2010 9:19pm PDT

    My 2005 just hit 60,000 miles and has started acting up; engine lights coming out, now AC is acting up and all electical parts of car are goofy, battery light on although just replaced it 2 weeks ago and alternator as well, along with new PCM computer. Urge all Vibe owners to take cars back to GMC now.

    the pcm and the whole car is toyota. so all toyota recalls for the matix will include vibes.

    I all of a sudden could get no gas going through a subdivision. I pulled over...the car didn't die and then I was able to go again. Not sure if this was my imagination or part of this problem. Worrisome since I drive a lot of back roads and highways on the way to work.

    don't bother taking your Vibe to GM yet... they haven't released the recall because Toyota hasn't made the new part yet. Just got the run around with GM and Everette Maxey in Bentonville AR over it. So my 2005 Vibe with the faulty PCM has been parked for 6 months now over this issue. Don't buy GM

    DONT BUY GM???
    DONT BUY TOYOTAS!!! MOST RELIABLE?
    MOST RELIABLE COVERUP OF POORLY MANUFACTURED!!!
    DONT SUPPORT THE YEN!!

    Still waiting on replacement PCM. Is this how our Federal Government is responding to broken parts which they have guaranteed? They bailed out GM encourgaged us to buy new cars, and yet, will not honor known manufacturing defects in existing cars that are now dangerous to operate. So much for the warranty on my 2009 Cobalt then.

    I bought a 2005 in October from a disreputable dealer. (I wish I'd known.) How can I find out if the vehicle has been taken in for any and all recall fixes? Thanks.

    My check engine light came on (on my 2005 VIBE) and was told my powertrain control module needed to be replaced. Paid a little over $1000.00 at the GM dealership. I always ask for any parts removed from my car. When I reminded the fella, he said he couldn't give it to me as there was a $300. core charge for the copper. After a brief argument he went and retrieved it handed it to me. It said TOYOTA on it. I took it to a parts dealer. He said he couldn't tell me if it came out of my car, but it was a powertrain control module.
    Two days later, the recall was announced on TV and news on the internet. The dealership to this day denies any problems or recalls with my car. I've called and sent certified letters to GM to no avail.
    I don't know what to do next. Perhaps a class action law suit would get them moving. And since mine was replaced prior to the recall, I don't know if the existing part is still potentially faulty and dangerous.

    Am having the same problem. Have had my Vibe in and out of the dealership many times since the end of July. The dealershiphas been very helpful, in fact not charging us the past two times for a gasket, two new PCMs, two air intake valves.
    Of course, I haven't had my car and my husband and I have been using loaner cars that are gas guzzlers and don't fit my needs.
    I'm glad there was mention of a class action suit.
    My concern is that GM is dragging their feet and that someone may get hurt or killed because their car stalled on a mjor highway, intersection.
    That may be the only way that the media will pay attention and GM will start doing something.
    I even wrote my AG and have been in contact witha person at GM who admitted that they wouldn't want to drive this car because of the safety issues.

    It is very sad to see another case of an uneducated public chastizing GM.GM has been fighting to get this recall taken care of but TOYOTA has not released parts for the repair.In the meantime Toyota has recalled and fixed all their customers cars and neglected the Pontiac Vibe owners.Why doesn't the public hold Toyota responsible?Why hasn't the govt. pushed Toyota to resolve this issue?Your PCM is still covered by a 8year/80,000 mile warranty and GM dealers will replace PCM under warranty if it needs to be replaced,if you had to pay for it save your receipt and you will get reimbursed when the recall comes out.It is very sad to see the public all ready jumping back on the Toyota band wagon after all the neglect they have given their customers in the name of profits while GM who is building some of the worlds most reliable cars,and bends over backwards to take care of their customers gets the bad rap.marcia

    I have a 2005 Vibe and the mileage is terrible now. I got a letter on the PCM recall and will have it replaced tomorrow without charge. The letter said if I already had it done I could be compensated for the money I paid to get it done. I hope my mileage improves. Anyone have experience with poor mileage related to PCM?

  • fb_631756890 avatar fb_631756890 Posted: 11/15/2011 10:23pm PST

    Mine is 2009 Pontiac Vibe base. It has a terrible gas mileage too, it does not give even more than 20 mpg. No one is able to tell what the problem is. I am planning to return the car to the dealer. I don''t know if it is related to PCM.

  • Chance Posted: 3/23/2011 1:54pm PDT

    I have an 06 vibe with poor economy, just got it out of the shop when they finished inspecting it and told me it does need the recal (go figure) but i asked him if it would improve fuel economy and he said "it is an updated version so it could change a number of factors" pretty vague i know but its all i could get out of him, so we'll see i guess.
