I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw this masterpiece of a parking job yesterday:



The parking lot was not even remotely crowded.

The Vibe, however, is a hideous beast, which like it's retard brother the Aztek, stands in homage to how Profoundly Wrong some of the calls that come out of Detroit can be. Such a sweet motor, wrapped in a package meant for people who don't give a rats *** about what's under the hood and will never hear it's sweet 7-8k banshee wail.

Find me a DD that's more reliable, economical, and useful. Mine has hauled recliners, lawn tractors, kayaks, has carried me around the country a couple times, consistently gets over 30mpg, and during its 150k mile lifetime (and counting) the only thing I've done is change oil and one set of brake pads.

I would expect it to be driven by a fastidious accountant or non-automotive enthusiast engineer.
Sure, Pontiac used the good stuff from Toyota. But like all things Pontiac, they have to find their own unique way to **** it up...in this case, it was the exterior they dicked over because they had nothing better to do. To me, my comment wasn't about the engineering of the Vibe or the fact that it's just a re-branded Toyota, it's that it takes a special person to look at that thing and think to oneself "yeah, that looks acceptable" when the Matrix looks a billion times better. I know the Vibe costs about 78.429% less than an equivalent Matrix...simply because of its looks, but in the case of being in such position, I'd exhaust all options before having my name on the same piece of paper binding me to the words "Pontiac" and "Vibe".

This joker pulled into Quiznos as I was leaving lunch. Made no effort whatsoever to fix it. Just barreled into the spot, smashed into the curb and left it. Four grown men jumped out. I chuckled.

See the rail in front of the buggy?

You loop the reins around that a couple of times, and the horse stays put.

(Not sure how you reverse a horse out of a parking spot with the buggy still hitched up.)

From what I have seen, just pull back on the reins evenly. Some horses respond to only voice commands too.
