Great car for camping.

by from on June 2, 2017

This car would be wonderful for someone who camps a little more than I do. Great for festivals and tailgating.

I bought my 2003 Aztec Rally new in 2003. It had everything that I needed at the time. It was comfortable to drive, plenty of space.When my son moved out we actually fit a love seat in the back of it after removing the back seats. I did have issues with the wheel bearings but my husband fixed them with no problem, and the tires did not last as long as I would have liked. All in all it was a great SUV. It lasted until 345000km when the head gasket went.

Great car for a chemistry teacher

I purchased this car for a steal with the incentives GM offered in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. On a teachers salary it really made a difference in the payment. I found it to be reliable transportation, with lots of room inside to hold my sons crutches.(he was born with cerebral palsy). When needed it makes a perfect vehicle for someone who doesn't want to attract too much attention. Didnt have many issues with it, other than frequent windshield breakage. Oh, and it seemed is though people had difficulty seeing it on the road as I nearly killed two pedestrians on the road one night. In the end though, I decided I wanted to go for something abit nicer, so I moved up to a Chrysler 300 SRT. I will always have fond memories of this car though... WW

i have always wanted an aztek so was so happy when I finally got a 2003 in 2011.it had 150,000 miles on it now has 195,000. it has electrical gremlins and none of my dash lights will shut off,keeps blowing out my headlights and now my gauges stop working when I drive it for longer than an hour.if someone knew about electrical then it would be the best vehicle I had ever owned but its time to get rid of it before more goes wrong..loved this vehicle

I bought it used at 200k and while I didn't think it was the prettiest car, it was comfortable and had the perfect amount of space for myself, 2 kids, and a big dog. I had it for 3 1/2 years, first 2 years I didn't have to fix a thing. Third year I had to fix the break line and replace the breaks. The gas gauge stopped working but I knew I could get at least 500km per tank so I didn't really care. Got in an accident with it and it's a write off. If I can find another one I'd love to have it! I miss it so very much! The trunk was huge, being able to fold down and take out the back seats was awesome too. Super comfortable drive, great in the snow, and when we got in the accident none of us was hurt in the least.

I have a 2003 Aztek that just passed 280k miles. I have had to do brakes, tires, oil changes, and thats it!!! I have had to replace the recline handle on the driver seat (common problem) but everything else has been perfect. Love the way it rides, I consistenly get 24-30 mpg and my whole family loves riding in it. I wished they still made them. My wife has a Toyota Highlander and I much rather have my Aztek. Lots of fun, unique styling, and trouble free.

I use this car for work (sales) and for everything else. It has almost 200K miles and I have to let it go. I can't afford to keep 2 cars but I need something "younger" for work. Sigh. This car can fit everything in. I wouldn't get a rally next time - hate the alloy wheels. The tires leak eventually and have to be reseated. Wheel hubs are a problem but those two things are the only real problems I've had. I am going to miss this car - it's the 2nd Aztek I've owned.

I baught this car two years ago at 100,000 miles its a 2003 and the next 50,000 miles was the worst from fuel system wiring and fuel pump failure, wheel bearings and ball joints, transmission going out,and the front end still feels like its going to fall apart but no one can find anything loose. i guess its just poor design over all this car is the worst i have ever owned. I think its time to buy a real american car and that is ford the best i ever owned.
