Is the Toyota Matrix transmission interchangeable with the Pontiac Vibe?

2005 Pontiac Vibe

2005 Pontiac Vibe, have a 2005 Pontiac vibe, AT, (1.8L, VIN 8, 8th digit), AWD (opt MU5) & I need to replace the tranny(transmission). I’d like to know, if in fact, the Toyota matrix tranny is interchangeable with the Pontiac Vibe? Also, is the 2003 Pontiac Vibe tranny interchangeable with the 2005 Pontiac



Transaxle(transmission) Swap

The 2003 – 2008 Pontiac vibe came with two different 1.8L engines and two different 4-speed automatic transmissions. The two different transmissions:

  • 4-speed A246E Automatic
  • 4-speed U341F Automatic

Any Pontiac Vibe transmission from 2003 – 2008 of the same type will work. Keep in mind that yours is an AWD and will require the transmission for an AWD. These are Toyota Built engines and transmissions for both the Vibe and Matrix. However, after looking at the part numbers and the year changes of the parts, it does not appear as though they are interchangeable. As for the 2003 Transmission, it is different than the 2005.
