Aztek has given 5 years of impeccable performance

Bought my 2004 Aztek in mid 2005 and have never once had a beef about the car's performance. I get a lof of negative comments about its styling, but when a car runs this good, so what? I am 6'3" and driving a Honda required my legs and feet to be straight-away. Not good on a long trip for a 70 year-old. The Aztek is almost like a comfy chair and my legs can be down and even crossed when on highway cruise. Lousy design, great-performing car I plan to keep for years to come.

Having a vehicle like this is the best of both worlds. It has the tailgate that comes down like a truck with two seats and two cupholders. That's what I loved about this SUV first. Handling is great. I've gone on many off-road trails with it in Idaho, and never had a complaint. This is a great car for literally any occasion. Driv-in movie date, camping, fishing, hunting, hauling, and a good'ol road-trip.

Super Deal, Super Vehicle

Fell in love with the front end first, then the rest of the vehicle! We have the slide-out cargo tray and a sun-roof, 17-inch wheels...kind of like having a higher-end SUV, if you ask me. Drives and rides more like a car than a cross-over, mechanically very good. Did have to do a push-rod at about 77,000 miles and the dealer replaced the rear engine gasket, but no other problems. Loads of storage and great comfort. Have had for almost 4 years and wouldn't trade it for anything. Just sorry they stopped making them!

I am a paramedic and spent 3 days in comfort during Hurricaine Charley 2 weeks after I bought my Aztek. I removed the rear seats with ease, put an inflatable mattress in the back, plugged a TV into the cigarette lighter in the back and used the cooler that came with the car. I was the only one that slept comfortably while the storm passed us over. If I ever need it for something I know it will not disappoint.

2004 Pontiac Aztec Rally Edition

I bought my Aztec in May of 2005. It was the dealership's showroom model and had 26 miles on it when I purchased it. Today I have a little over 75,100 miles on it. When I went to the dealership it was not the vehicle I was leaning towards. After taking it for a test ride and getting familiar with all of the options on it I was more impressed with the vehicle. When I looked at financing the deal was sealed. I was able to get the Rally edition fully loaded for less than what the stripped down 2005 models were going for. I've had my Aztec for over 9 years now and it has been an extremely reliable, safe and comfortable ride. They get a lot of grief from the appearance but it's become a badge of honor for those who own and appreciate the overall package of ride and performance.

The Most Beloved car I've owned

I love almost everything about this car. It has an incredible amount of cargo room enough for my 5 big dogs to sit comfortably. It drives well, the seats are comfortable. I personally am one of the ones who loves the look and styling and can't wait to try it camping. If I have one complaint, it would be about the wipers folding under the hood design. I live in the northeast and have had the snow pack up under the hood and cause the wipers not to work until I have dug them out (which is a long time consuming process in the cold) But I live with it because I love everything else!

I have had my aztek for a few years now and absolutely love everything about it. I commute about 30 minutes a day to work and love the feel and flexibility of this car. I run a two summer camps in the summer and constantly am hauling program supplies, not a problem in my aztek! Have not had any major issues besides regular up keep, treat your car well and it will treat you well! To the guy who said that parts are hard to find...do you not have an auto parts store near you? All GM parts are easy to get and cost less that cars from across the ocean! I hope to have this car until I sadly have to drive it to the junk yard in many many years!

My Aztek is awesome! When I first saw them in 2001 I liked them. Then they were redesigned, I liked it more. Then I needed a new ride, and drove one and fell in love. I love the unique design and comfy seats. I will not purchase another SUV as they all look the same and are either small or big, no perfect size like the Aztek. BRING BACK THE AZTEKS!!!!

We really love this car. We bought it used over a year ago with 58,000 miles and have come to appreciate it's flexability. With the back seats removed there is an enormous cargo space. Compared to other SUV's, the gas mileage is great. We have get 27 mpg highway and 20 in the city. The price, mpg, comfort and size were just right. Plus, it's not a minivan. I would buy another, but would get the AWD model.
