If / when anyone knows where to get a hood deflector for a 2009 please post it here. Pontiac parts department does not have anything. I searched the web and could not find anything.

Go to weathertech.com They have real good bug deflectors and EASY to Install...usually fits into existing underhood holes with no drilling. No, I don't work for them....but...they really do have excellent products.

The weathertech stuff looks nice, exactly what I am looking for. Unfortunately they do not have a hood deflector for the 2009 Vibe yet. The only option that I can find right now is putting 3M Scotchgard or Invsi-Mask film on the hood.

I just bought a 2009 Vibe in liquid platinum with the 1.8 and auto trans. I have the hubcaps in 16" and was wishing I could have got aluminum wheels but I couldn't with that package combo. Anyway, I've been searching for accessories and noticed someone on e-bay selling body moldings for a VIBE 09.

My only other suggestion is to try EBay...type in Pontiac Vibe accessories and see if there are any available.Several suppliers advertise on that site and usually there are bug deflectors, window deflectors, etc. available. Perhaps some are availabe for the 2009 Vibe????? I know the Matrix and Vibe are supposedly "TWINS' so maybe the Matrix bug deflector might fit if available?????

Trying a Toyota parts counter really makes sense. All Vibe and Matrix vehicles are North American, though one is Californian and the other Canadian.

what kind of MPG are you guys getting on broken in, 2009 vibes? I am wondering how it compares to my 2007 with the smaller engine, auto tranny.

I have a 2009 GT with a 2.4L DOHC engine. It's getting 29-30 mpg on the highway, driving up to 9 mph over the speed limit. City driving is generally around 23-25 mpg, far better than the EPA-rated 21 on the sticker. However, I work at home and do not commute, so there is little, if any, stop and go, bumper to bumper driving.

I have a 2009 Pontiac Vibe GT. In April, two days after I purchased it, I drove to Durham, NC and back to Buffalo, NY and averaged 29.97 miles to the gallon. Last week I drove to Baltimore, MD and back to Buffalo, NY and averaged 31.20 miles to the gallon. Most of both trips were on the highway, although I did drive in the cities as well. My previous vehicle was a 2005 Vibe AWD and it didn't do as well as my current vibe.

2009 Vibe: Mine matches the window sticker, pretty much. I just crossed the 1000 mile mark.
