Our Aztec died in a crash recently and it will be missed.
The minivan based design allowed it to be a great snow ski hauler since ski's fit under the seat.
Although the spoiler did restrict rear vision - it also appeared to always block the headlights of the car behind us when they were tailgating.
It got us everywhere we needed to go.
The front seats of all cars are comfortable but the often forgotten rear seat [I guess most parents think it is the kids problem not theirs] was very comfortable for the Aztec.
If the look can be ignored, the function is great.
Note: some Aztec's inherited all the problems.
Find a good one and keep it for life.

I thought this was the ugliest automobile on the road, and then I drove one! My first was a 2001 with a campers package (loved it!), then I traded it for a 2005 knowing the car was nlm. I will have it paid off soon and hope it lasts forever! I haul greyhound dogs in it and it is perfect with the back seats removed. I love this car!

I've had my Aztek for about 5 years now and it's perfect for us. It washes up to look great for executive meetings and transforms to a great family rig for weekends on the coast. I have a two package and pull a trailer with gear for longer trips. Plenty of room. It runs great. 80k miles and still strong. My only thing is the sunroof is flawed. Had it repaired 5 times and it still doesn't work. I'm looking for a second one now.
leave Pontiac with the Grand Am, Grand Prix, Aztek, Vibe and Montana. (The presence of the Aztek, regardless of what Pontiac does with it, seems to me to be redundant with the Vibe and Montana, but ...
