A good vehicle with a bad rep. I dont know why people are ripping on the transmission, which is the same exact transmission that was in the Trooper from 90 to 02 and is also in many GM vehicles. Great engine and serious acceleration. Never left me stranded. Only typical wear and tear in the 5 years I've had it. Won't sell it because its resale is lower than its actual value.
Computer display in center console has loads of good info, Best SUV acceleration for its year and good looking front grille.
Front seats are a little low, shocks are a bit stiff (they must have thought I was going to race it).
Car has been very reliable and is eye-catching in appearance. I still get people asking me, even after 5 years old and 3 years since last Axiom was made, what kind of car it is and where can they look at a new one. The styling obviously made it impossible to put in a third row seat but have to say that I have never needed to carry more than 5 people and sometimes go for months with the rear seats folded down. It's been a great car and although I plan on my next purchase being a sedan, I will keep the Axiom.
Styling, acceleration, interior, sunroof.
NA since not made anymore but from time it was new, I think a five speed or 6 speed transmission would have helped gas mileage.
Neat SUV! I would say that this is one of the most unique SUVs that I have ever seen. It is nice to own a vehicle that not everyone has. This truck is awesome. I did have to replace the front shocks and rear brake rotors when I purchased my Axiom, but I can honestly say that this comes with all USED vehicles. If you expect a vehicle in mint condition, get a NEW one. I thoroughly enjoy all that my Axiom has to offer.
Torque on demand, four wheel drive, multiple suspension modes, engine power options, 6 disc changer, (tape deck), sleek interior equipped with leather and tinted windows, roomy cargo capibilities, very stylish exterior, powerful v6 with option to tow, I LOVE IT!!
I had bought this car without doing any information about the car, If I were you listen to this REVIEW!!!!!! I had bought it Aug. 2006 w/79xxx miles and when I got home I relized the shocks needed to be replaced....yeah no prob. but like $200 a shock...ouch... and finding parts for this car is IMPOSIBLE!!!!! especially the front control pannel...b/c this car has buttons to control like AM/FM and AC the buttons fall out and I so far have taped them cause it costs $500 to replace the hole pannel not just the buttons...anyhow that is about it besides the back leg room is horrible and the back storage is also bad ....but that is what you get for a SMALL SUV....AND ITS A GAS HOG about 13/17.
Nice orange glow at night inside...sunroof ....but be careful with the plastic around the glass you can get the sunroof caught in the track...and sweet stero...and 6 cd changer...but its in the armrest :(
Better gas milege...more room in back and better materials inside...and better leather...hard to clean up (blue jeans stain this leather and you have to clean it about once every 4 days) oh and paint is pealing off letters of car....:(
