Owned since new in 2003. Have had normal low cost maintenance such as tires, brakes, oil changes etc. As a family of five, we've accumulated only 90,000 or so miles since purchased. Gas mileage is average and consistent in the hills or long flat roads. Car lasted several years beyond payoff, and has proven to have been a good buy for me and my family. My wife still loves to drive it, and I do too. My sister has one the same year, and has racked up a whopping 180,000 miles, and it's still going everyday too!

(I've never felt safer!)

I have had many many cars and trucks in my days, and I've never felt safer or more stylish. When they first came out I said "Oh look- they are driving a robot!" But the styling grew on me because it was different, and more and more of the concept cars and trucks at the auto shows were going for a sharper look. So I bought one, and for the past 4 years, it has never let me down! Great gas mileage, dependability, and I even feel safer in it than my husbands past GMC Yukon, Durango, Chevy Suburban, and Escalade. I just paid mine off, and if I were ever in the market for a new truck, I would go for another Aztek, but I will get the leather and sun roof too!!!! Shame on Pontiac- they never should have stop making it!

I have had my Aztec for 10 years. I love it. I would buy another one today if they still made them. They did not sell well back then because the dealers did not have them on their regular lots, they kept them hidden away. If it had not been for one of the service staff. I would not have know that the dealer even had them. I was about to leave without buying anything that day. I have about 240,000 miles and it is still going. I did have to replace the transmission 2 years ago after hauling trailers all the way to California from 2004 to 2007. Why did they stop making them.

I've had this vehicle since 2005 when I bought it new. Drove it on a military base and had a military troop just stop to enjoy the shiny and never seen base car that had just passed by them. I was told that they couldn't believe that their chaplain had a very impressive and intimidating car that they would love to have. My wife and I love it. Eventhough we purchase another car in the future we want to keep our Aztek and pass it on to our grandson. The drive has been excellent and mileage 151,400 feels new. Just a few issues like the radio and oil drips but they are not major issue.

Happy with my Aztek

I like the way it looks - its unique and it stands out. The bar in the back window that some claim "blocks your vew" does take a little getting used to (I no longer notice it and can see just fine). Because there is so much window surface in the back, and its not as big as a minivan you can actually see MORE behind and around you in the back than the Ford Windstar I owned previously. Motor has lots of pep! I gave it only Average reliablity because it had a wheel hub/bearing go bad, and I had to have the air conditioning system fixed (bad weld when it was built).

Luckily my wife and I like the design...most people don't. It's amazingly roomy on the inside but fits in parking spaces like a small to midsize car. It's our first pontiac and our first SUV. We've had it two years and it's been great.

As a previous owner of an Aztek I recomend it and regret not having it still, it is confortable, heavi, stabe Almost 300 miles per tankif not a little over, ample cargo space. In the five years I owned all I did was the regular change of oil and filters, rotoate the tire. brakes a couple of timesand tires also a couple of time. Mind you I used to drive from 100 to 200 miles daily. Interiorwhise, the watercooler was a great concept, dashboard wise it had it all at the rich of your hands, it was quiet. and for the Road all I can tell you might not be enoug. I would not hesitate in buying another one even if unfortuantely can not be new.

I am an owner of a Pontiac Aztek, I got a good deal on it, new, because alot of people didnt like the design. I love it, it looks smaller on the outside but the back seats can fold down or you can completely remove them. This is great for anyone with kids. I was able to fit a full size mattress in it, I was moving and spending nites renovating, I needed my mattress. It is a good vehicle, mainly general maintenance is all I had to do!

Great ride, large trunk area , lots of pep and good gas milage. 26 highway and 15-17 stop and go situations. Lots of people think the style is unusual , but dramatic. The spoiler and redone side panels helped the image from the earlier model. Sorry GM didn't continue the name plate.
