2002 Pontiac Aztek Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

My family and I are very happy with my
2001 Pontiac Aztek. It has been driven
alot by this family with 3 kids. To
date, the only problem we've had with
the car was a stuck rear lift gate
latch. My wife loves it so much she
wants to get one of her own.


Best Features

The huge rear cargo area is great. In fact, we like all the features of this vehicle, which is why we purchased it, and it hasnt failed to deliver.


Worst Features

I'd like to see Pontiac install a rear-facing third row. My kids love to play in that cargo area when we go on long trips, and a third row back there would be perfect for them.

Review

i've owned several SUV's and none were
as fun to drive as my AZTEK. it handles
well, takes tight turns and the gas
milage is great. i did some sporty work
to it and it looks great..


Best Features

the stero sound system, and my captain seats.


Worst Features

the rear hatch is much to heavy to open and close. tires should be a wider model.rear hatch should be rounded a bit at the bottoom..

Review

As you can tell from my mileage I live
in my Aztek. I drive 160 miles round
trip every day for work. Due to an
auto accident I have herniated disks in
my back, my last car, a small truck,
caused me great amounts of pain. The
drive in my Aztek has not caused me any
pain.

I have not had to take my Aztek into
the shop for anything but general
maintenance such as oil changes. I can
not say that of the last vehicle I
owned, a Ford Ranger. The seats are
easy to remove AND replace. The cargo
tray and nets keep things from sliding
around in the back and the extra power
source is great for parades and
sporting events.


Best Features

I have hauled costumes & props for community theater, furniture from Ikea & even hay. I comfortably fit 5 adults in my Aztek, can not say the same for Ford Explorer. I can dress in a suit and high heels for work and my Aztek lets me feel like I am getting in a car not a truck.


Worst Features

Ok, gas mileage could be better, but at 20+ miles to the gallon with air conditioning on its not bad and better than my last vehicle.

Review

Many people do not like the Aztek
based on its looks. If they would look
past that, they would find a quality
vehicle, with lots of comfort and
functionality at a reasonable price.
I wish Pontiac would advertise the
Aztek more because there are a lot of
consumers out there that are missing
out on a fabulous car!
I am so glad I bought mine. It's very
comfortable for my family of 4. It
holds everything I need it to and the
kids have plenty of room. The Aztek is
roomier than its counterparts (RAV4
and CRV).
Check out the Aztek. Youu won't be
disappointed.


Best Features

Roominess, Cargo space, Folding/removable rear seats, console cooler, space age front end!


Worst Features

Larger rear view mirror, better rear cup holders

Review

Sure, it's easy to bash Pontiac for
what most consider to be ugly, weird,
or bizarre styling. But it grows on
you, and after owning one for nearly a
year, I have concluded it is on of the
best values out there. We've had NO
mechanical problems, there are no
rattles or squeaks and it tows our
camper (equipped with towing package)
with ease.


Best Features

Front end styling -- very agressive. Dash design is logical, yet sporty. I call setting '5' for the fan the 'tornado' setting. Flip and fold rear seats create a huge cargo area. Rear seats also recline about 20 degrees, if you want to take a snooze.


Worst Features

While clamshell rear hatch is very functional, the spoiler, which is mounted where the two pieces of backglass merge restricts rear visibility. Until a re-design, a larger rear view mirror might help. Lighter socket should be illuminated. Large cowl opening collects leaves.
