I'm a "traditional" SUV type person and I was kinda skeptical about the Aztek (looks a lil funny), even after we test drove and decided to buy it. Acceleration is very good, and out performs my Tahoe when it comes to gas mileage. Over the course of a weekend trip I was averaging aprox 27 mpg hwy, with the ac running too. WOW! My chevy, as much as I love it, wouldnt have done much better than 18 mpg at best. so on fuel economy, I have no complaints. The interior is fairly user friendly, and is a comfy ride. About the only thing I dont like is that its AWD and not 4WD. Visibility all around isnt bad.
split tail gate and storage in the pull out tray
a bit of a blind spot with the spoiler, but not a drastic effect on rear visibility
