Firecracker Red High Altitude is home!

We got tired of waiting for our factory order and decided to see what would happen if you gave a Pontiac Vibe some spinach. Needless to say the results were surprising!

Seriously, though, my wife and I are really happy with the new KL. I just love the colour and black trim. It's such a nice vehicle inside and out. We've only taken her for a spin around the city, but the ride is sure nice. I guess buying a car every 10 years plus means there's quite a jump in features. We did go with the extended warranty. It was offered to us at a good price for Canada, and with all this technology, we wanted to be covered.

I've got a couple accessories on order and may have even found a genuine Night Eagle badge which seems to be the European High Altitude equivalent. The lower right-hand space on the lift gate is screaming for a badge, and I don't want any chrome on this if it can be avoided.

We spent some time pairing our phones, setting up Homelink, and organizing the menus and settings while enjoying the heated seats and great sound system. I'm loving the upgraded audio package!

I'll post some better photos of it when I get my badge and put some more kilometers on her, but right now we're very impressed.

With black wheels on the Pontiac and the newer headlamp technology and you have twins. I really hope thats a pic of your Pontiac. If so you seem ahead of the times and Pontiac must be wondering what the heck want wrong.

Yes, that's our Vibe. It's been a great car, but now it's up for sale. The interior dimensions between the two vehicles is very close, so is the fold flat front passenger seat.

Great comparison pic! You are going to love the Cherokee. I went from a 16 y/o to mine and the newness (to me anyway) hasn't worn off in over three years. The Cherokee is just that nice.
