It got a bad rap
By Mina on


2001 Pontiac Aztek Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


At first I thought it was just plain ugly! Then I drove it and bought it, needing a car NOW. Fun to drive, great U-turns, comfortable, enough features. New engine at 72,000 miles - a piston/cylinder spring broke - but that's the only problem. 26 mpg on trips - really good for the space we had. Seating was good, even used the tent and mattress once (we're older). Liked having shoulder belt in middle of back seat. Disgusted that Pontiac/GM didn't have a comparable sized replacement, now in 2007 Rendezvous. Like that, but, again, discontinued.

I've always thought this was one of the ugliest cars on the road. I'm a big fan of Breaking Bad and I never understood why Walter always drove around in this s@%! box. I just stumbled across this article ranking the 100 worst cars of all time. Guess which car was number 1 lol?? http://www.edmunds.com/car-reviews/features/100-worst-cars-of-all-time.html
