To me it worth every penny I spend because I am 63. The old armrest is useless to me because it is too low. If I rest my arm on it for long period of time, sometime it hurts my shoulder.
It's not padded. It is same hard plastic as old one but give me an extra little compartment which is between the cover and center storage. That is why it is higher and wider than the old one. People usually put insurance information in that compartment. The armrest I bought is as same as 2005 Toyota matrix (That is why you can buy it from Toyota parts center). It is also similar with 2003 and 2004 Vibe armrest. Unfortunately, Pontiac decide to redesign the armrest in 2005 to save some money (Thats why you cannot buy the parts from Pontiac parts center)
My car interior color is graphite and parts number I post early on is also graphite which matches exactly with the interior color of my car. I do not know if they have other colors other than graphite.

Thanks for the information
Not sure why they spent time and money to make the armrest lower! Just a little padding would have been nice. I may just go see one for myself to be sure.
I bought the last 05 5 speed in a 5 state area. $4400 off with all employee nonsense and rebates and GM card money ($300). The dealer refused to give me the $500 military discount as the VIBE was excluded from that.
Anyhow, seems like a decent ride.

Hi .. I am taking the plundge and trading in my 04 Acura TL for a Vibe Front wheel drive. The vibe just seems so much more practical -- I have a dog who is with me most of the time ... and the TL only takes premium gass.
Here is the deal: What do you think?
2005 - Vibe Base with 3K miles (dealer trade in -)
price --- $15,000
(I know the dealer pretty well) ---- is it better to just get a new one with all the incentives?
Also -- has anyone tried the Pioneer GPS- DVD in dash system in their vibe?

In order to tell you if you are getting a good deal or not...You have to provide complete info as to your vehicle.
Moon and tunes??? Monotone package??? Power package???? any other options... and then go to the Edmunds new car section...price out exactly what you are buying...and...that way you will see the MSRP and Invoice prices and then you will have to also go to the GM site and see what the employee price would have been when the first owner puchased it ( or easier way) if the dealer sold the car originally...ask him to show you the original sale and compare same to your potential sale.....Just from looking at what info you gave, the 6CD changer and OnStar are worth extra bucks. If you don"t need OnStar, then you are paying for something not needed, although I believe you do not have to subscribe to it.
The power pack and monotone pack are also worth more and most units have come thru that way????
#155 of 399 2006 Vibe purchase question
Sep 23, 2005 (5:04 am)
Has anyone that has purchased the 2006 Vibe know if you are able to use the $1000.00 Conquest incentive towards same? Also, have you gotten any discounts at all???
#156 of 399 $500.00 incentive on the 2006 Vibe
Oct 01, 2005 (11:11 am)
I just checked the GM Regional incentive site (Southeast) and they have a $500.00 rebate or 1.9% financing and yet there is no incentives for the 2005's?????

As of today they conquest rebate is not applicable on the 06 model vibes. I would think that they will soon have to put some incentives out there if they want to sell any.
#158 of 399 Would someone please post
Oct 05, 2005 (5:59 am)
what kind of deal they have received on the 2006 Vibe! Please give the total MSRP after all options added and then what you actually paid. Please do not include tax, tags and title fees.
