2003 Pontiac Aztek Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

Review

Beautiful SUV, classy and elegant in black. Bought @ under 7,000 mi. Had to replace passenger wheel baring @ 40k mi. Replace driver wheel baring @ 50k mi. Now must replace again 4 months later. Need to replace brakes too often. Leaks coolant. Doors don't always unlock. Locking doesn't always "beep". Rear hatch doesn't release without helping hand. Settings 1 & 2 on AC/heat don't work. At a stop it will "jump" forward for no reason nearly bumping car in front of me. Rolls forward after putting in park. Hard to find parts outside of dealership. All common problems according to other sites. I'm so sad b/c I love this car so much. I want to keep it forever, but may have to trade someday soon.

Best Features

Interior is very sophisticated and attractive. Love all the extras. Drives like a dream. Feeling of safety b/c of size and spaciousness inside.

Worst Features

Overhaul on wheel baring systems, and cooling system. Simple repairs such as door locks and hatch should be done in a recall. Lots of little things could be fixed and would leave owners feeling more satisfied with vehicle and less upset about big repairs which will be needed with many Azteks.
