I traded my Suburban for my Aztek.
Best economics trade ever... I have 52K
miles on my 2002, and have had no
mechanical problems, and get 20/25 city
and highway. Don't have the space of
the suburban (9 passengers), but have
room for 5 adults and luggage for
same. I tow a 8' utility trailer for
recreation, and love the flexibility of
flipping rear seats down, or up, or
taking them out easily. Cargo space is
nice in the rear, with 48" width for
hauling lumber for those home
improvement projects. Drivers seat
cover replaced under warranty last year.
Economics of flexible, versitile
vehicle, that will still hold 5
adults. Great sound system, and drive
great in town, or at 80 on the
interstate. Truck like aspects, with
car like handling.
Rear hatch lift mechanisms need to be
stronger to open in winter, or open at
all some times. Like spoiler for
looks, but severaly impacts clear
vision to the rear. Rear seat cup
holders difficult for adults, since
they are located in the lower door
