Report Gillespie Dam Brigde in Old Spanish Trail / U.S. 80 / U.S. 90 Posted February 11, 2009 Cool, another Vibe in the American Road Forum mini-wagon fleet. I have a Vibe and Chris Rowland & mobilene have Matrixs Matrixes Matrixi a Matrix each. If we lived closer, maybe we could form a precision drill team and get in parades like the Shriners. LOL! I think the actual plural of 'Matrix' is 'Matrices'?! The Vibe/Matrix are just fantastic little cars, period! Even though the auto press pretty much ignores them, at least "Consumer Reports" always gives them high marks. The joint GM/Toyota plant where they're made in Fremont CA is highly regarded as well. My '05 Vibe has been absolutely trouble-free from Day 1 (four years in June) and my local Pontiac/Cadillac/GMC/Saab dealer has been a great place to go for routine service. Yes, I'm one satisfied customer. But for my road trip, I'm still hoping to take my '99 Miata. Winter in Southern Arizona is 'top-down' time!
