2002 Pontiac Aztek AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Just bought this '02 Aztek,and I love it.The dealer gave me a great deal on it, since he thought it was so ugly, he didn't want it on his lot. It is roomy, and very easy to drive. Plenty of cargo/storage area, and the rear seats lift out like a mini-van.This is very helpful for moving large objects, or transporting a huge dog, as I do.A very versatile, and unusual vehicle. The AWD version (which I own) gives you the SUV you need-I live in CT-plus minivan type room-all wrapped up in a unique package.


Best Features

The roominess.Big inside,seats in back lift out easily-when needed.Drives,and shifts very nicely.Easy to park,goes well in snow-a neccesity in the Northeast!Plus it looks like nothing else on the road-not many unique vehicles around these days-drive an Aztek-people will recognize it


Worst Features

Just two complaints-first,that rear spoiler really hinders your vision out the back window.Secondly,the hatch should have a button,or handle to open it.To access the hatch,you have to turn the key once,lift,then turn it again.Very confusing-took me a LONG time to figure out how to open it.

2002 Pontiac Aztek Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Replaced rear hatch shocks, brake safety switch, front passenger side wheel axle, thermostat, rear defrost doesn't work and hatch is hard to close. Fixing things costs a lot of money because you have to go to a dealer. I was better off trading it.


Best Features

Comfortable car. Avg 23 mpg. Loved features.


Worst Features

Fix the rear window/hatch to remove the trim. It is too bulky and creates a severe blind spot.

2002 Pontiac Aztek AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I purchased this car used with under 40K miles from a Ford dealer on e-bay. My trip home averaged 27 mpg. I often drive the car to Northern Vermont, a six hour trip feeling refreshed and confident that the AWD will perform in snow as expected. With side airbags, ABS, fog lights, truly comfortable heated seats and an average mpg consistently in the low to mid twenties and a price below $12,000, this car offers good value. It is easy to find in parking lots bcause of its size and rarity. If the car had a more appealing exterior, I would probably own TWO.


Best Features

Ride comfort, cavernous interior, stereo, storage, versatility, heads-up display, heated leather seats,onstar, good gas mileage


Worst Features

Blind spots resulting from rear spoiler and rear window configuration.

2002 Pontiac Aztek Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My wife and I loved the concept car and wanted the production model from Day 1. We test drove a 2001 GT,loved that one but resisted it until we could travel 30 mi. to see this "basic" 2002 with fewer miles and a lower pricetag. With Azteks, basic doesn't mean stripped. We don't have ONstar, dual A/C controls, power seats; but we do have most everything else. We used to be Chrysler minivan owners. This one is has a tighter body than any of the 3 Chrysler products we've owned. It rides better than the standard Caravan, handles better, and the transmission has none of the Chrysler "hunting" tendencies on long upgrades. Other than replacing a ruined tire, no repairs at all thus far.


Best Features

Ride and handling far better than an SUV or Chrysler-built minivan. Lots of room in a relatively small vehicle. Smooth-shifting transmission that doen't "hunt" on hills. 35 more hp. than Carvan from only .1L larger engine. Futuristic styling!!Lie nothing else on the road.


Worst Features

GM should put Aztek back into production and promote its good fuel economy, comfortable ride, and the overall better quality of Aztek/Buick Rendezvous over short-wheelbase Chrrysler products.

Review

starting to use oil and the heater fan is a little load on high. Other than that, it has been a great car.


Best Features

I can use it as a work truck then put the seats back in and take the family out for dinner. Only paid $15000 new so I think it is a great value. My wife has a Honda CRV and it feels like a toy after driving the Aztek.


Worst Features

Split rear seats, some type of organizer instead of the cooler.
