Great vehicle. 168k and still going strong. Best feature is the versatility of the the interior. Easy to remove seats.

I love my aztek

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Aztek Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

I've had my Aztek now for 10 months. I absolutely love it. I went from driving a 1992 Toyota Corolla to the Aztek. Huge change! Indeed a great one though. My husband and son have no problems with not enough room like I did with the previous car. I've not had to replace anything on it but the brakes and tires. It had 92000 miles on it when I bought it. Great gas mileage for an SUV. Awesome stereo system!

88k-5+ years: going great.

First was my wife's car. Became mine last year. Great road car. Wish we could get 27-29 mpg, best ever 26.5 on highway. Got rid of full-size pick-up and took over the Aztek ... not a bad deal. Few negatives, lots of good stuff. Stereo rocks. Pull out tray in rear is wonderful. If they still made them, we'd buy another.

My favorite car of all

by on
Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Aztek Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

My biggest disappointment is that I'll never be able to get another one. I have loved the reliability, value and function of this car. Rides fantastic! Great pickup. Function, function, function on the interior. Like everyone else, I would say the rear spoiler causes a major blind spot but you do get used to it. I have almost 90K on this and still no problems. I am going to drive it into the ground.




Love my azzie!

My Aztek has been the 'perfect' vehicle for me out all the vehicles I have ever owned! It's not a girlie (mini-) SUV, but handles like a car. I love the interior because it's easy to clean up spills. (My three teenagers and I live in the car!) It is easy to handle, doesn't sit too high or too low, sporty, converts easily for more cargo space, and I easily put my 7-8 foot fresh cut Christmas tree in it! It's been the best investment I've ever made in a vehicle!

Long-run ownership experience positive

Vehicle: 2004 Pontiac Aztek Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)

I bought the Aztek because I had GMcard dollars I needed to use, it had big incentives, and I wanted a wagon. The Aztek has far exceeded my expectations. After 43k miles, not a single problem. I get 26 mpg on the freeway, the car rides like a Buick (this is great for freeway, bad for enthusiasts), it has over 100 cubic feet of storage (more than any wagon - check), and the exterior design is actually looking better as it ages. Interior design is a little cheesy, but incredibly functional and versatile. Engine and handling are lazy, but smooth and competent. My wife is in love with this car, and it has been an unmatched value. Azteks made after the first years are surprisingly reliable

The other day I was picking someone up in my Aztek (2004), and while I was idling, I began to smell a burning/melting plastic smell. The car seemed to still be running fine, so I decided to keep drivi...
