The 2008 Pontiac Vibe offers a few compelling options, but overall, the standard and optional features list is very lackluster.

The 2008 Pontiac Vibe comes in only one trim level, and as such, all vehicles with the Pontiac Vibe label sport the same standard features. Kelley Blue Book lists some of those standard features as "air conditioning, rear defroster, illuminated entry, fog lights," and "automatic headlamp control." ConsumerGuide adds that a "split folding rear seat, power mirrors," and "AM/FM/CD player" come standard on the 2008 Pontiac Vibe. Also on the standard features list is a unique item that most reviews read by TheCarConnection.com appreciate: a "console-mounted 115-volt outlet" that Kelley Blue Book says "allows you to plug in accessories without the need for a 12-volt adaptor."

The options list on the Pontiac Vibe isn't very lengthy, and it mostly centers on package items, but it includes several features worth mentioning. Among the most noteworthy are "lots of options for audio junkies," according to Car and Driver, which ConsumerGuide says include a "Monsoon sound system" and "AM/FM radio w/in-dash 6-disc CD changer." Edmunds reviewers cite as one of their favorite options the "optional Preferred Package, which provides full power accessories, cruise control and keyless entry." From the stand-alone options list, Kelley Blue Book states that consumers can opt for "XM Satellite Radio" and a "power glass sunroof," along with "17-inch alloy wheels" for those who want to add a little more flair to their Pontiac Vibe. Bluetooth, iPod connectivity, and a navigation system are unavailable for the 2008 model year, though GM’s OnStar service is offered.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
