My 2002 Pontiac Aztec
By Doug Wilson on
2005 Pontiac Aztek AWD 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)
My Aztec is the worst automobile I've ever owned in my life. 1st Pontiac Grand Am, purchased new, within one years paint bwgan to peel off, Dealer refused to repaint it, said it was because of the High Mileage I put on it. Bought a New Pontiac Grand Prix a few years later. Ran OK but interior buttons began to crack and break, at 63000 mikes it's timing belt broke and realy damaged the engine my mechanic told me. Then the Pontaic AZTEC 2002 used, with 28000 miles on it. had nothing but trouble with it electricly, have spent well over $1500 getting elctricsl problems fixed plus lousy gas mileage, Hard suspension. Pontiac Factory refuses to stand behind the car. Good Bye Pontiac fo
Pontiac should stand up and offer tofix their engeering defects if they want to keep me as customer
The extremely poor wiring, Non fold back mirrors, Fuel mileage, Just totaly redesign the car to be dependable, Foriegnauto mfg's are able to do that. Gee, why is the American Automobile Mfgs having such a hard time, DUH !
- We had the same thing happen to our Pontiac Grand AM 1999 model. I was shocked when the holes started appearing in the hollow buttons on the radio panel. I mean really now. How pathetic can the body hardware get? I've never seen that kind of thing happen on any other brand of car besides GM models. It makes you wonder what the rest of the car is built like
Then the window motors burned out prematurely
Then the water pump went out.
After that we bought a Honda Accord and have been hooked on Hondas since. Very happy now.
The wiring is incredibly poor cause the workers are only given 1 minute to lay the wiring for the entire vehicle. Seems ridiculous, but it's true. It's no wonder so many USA cars have electrical problems
