It's a pretty good car...
I've had my Aztek for 5 years so it wasn't new when I bought it but I drove it on road trips and it did its job. I wasnt a fan of the exterior but Breaking Bad talked me in to it 😌. As long as I took care of the car no major issues came up. However this car has a bad history with the steering which I had repaired but after the repair it's still not 100%.
Adore this car!
I love the 2005 Aztek! This is my second Aztek and I bought a loaded Rallye with all the bells and whistles. It's so comfortable, handles like a dream, gets 22-23 mpg and has room to move anything. Amazing heated leather seats! Pontiac has corrected major mechanical and electrical issues from the earlier models. I think that "ahead of it's time" styling is what lead to it's demise. Just look around - it doesn't look weird now. I put 225,000 miles on this car and it only needed tires and routine maintenance. The transmission finally wentt but I don't like the other cars I have looked at, so I'm looking for a used one - 2004 or 5!
Reliable, and looking more like today's suv's
I own a Rally Edition and love it! It is reliable, fun to drive, and low dollar maintenance vehicle. If you find one in nice condition, they are not that expensive and look more like today's suv's. They were ahead of there time.
