2004 Pontiac Vibe Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your 2004 Pontiac Vibe

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.

The bolts attaching the front door window glass to the window regulator may come loose. This can cause the window regulator to become damaged and possibly causing the window glass to break. Some 2003 & 2004 models have been recalled for the issue.

The first five mins was on city roads so the speed was like 30 to 35 miles but then I went onto the freeway when I found I couldn't get the speed up. Then I switched back to the D gear. But the whole process, the rpm never went near to redline. It was around 5k to 6k. The redline is 7k to 8k ...

they continue to operate. No matter what position the control is put in the wipers continue to run. It seems as though this only happens when the weather becomes real cold out. Once the temperatures warm up, the problem stops. Please provide some solutions......

The airbag control module can fail prematurely due to electrical noise beyond the tolerance it was designed for. As a result the front airbags, side airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners could deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated, increasing the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. Dealers will replace the airbag control module and front and/or side impact sensors as required to correct this concern.

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in southern Florida, along the Gulf Coast, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Saipan and American Samoa. Upon deployment the passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the passenger side air bag inflator to correct this concern. If a replacement inflator is not available, as an interim measure, the dealer will disable the front passenger air bag and advise the customer not to use the front passenger seat until a replacement inflator is installed.
