2003 Pontiac Aztek SUV Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought my Aztek new in 2003. I drive a lot of highway so I wanted a few more comfort options and I wanted a vehicle that would sit up higher and have more room without getting a truck or a minivan. The car has been great with 2 large dogs and our child. It rides comfy and even though I thought these cars were so ugly when they came out, I actually like the look now. The car has been very reliable. I have read that consumer reports says to avoid them yet I have had few problems. The oil changes were always on time, I replaced the front brakes and bearings and had the 100,000 mile flushes done. At 113,000 miles the car is still riding as good as when it was new.


Best Features

The heated seats! Definitely a must have in the winter. I also love my heads up display on the windshield and my premium sound system.


Worst Features

Rear hatch does occasionally stick and it is heavy. It also took a very long time to get used to the bar in the middle of the rear window.

Review

Overall, this has been an exceptional SUV. I bought it when it had 35,000 miles and now it has 146,900 + miles! I have had a few problems, but who doesn't on an older car? Of course, I didn't buy it for its looks! People laugh at me, but now they think I'm pretty smart.


Best Features

It handles well. It has a lot of room and with the price of gas $3.55 to $4.00 per gallon, it is worth driving.


Worst Features

More driver leg room. No spoiler (fin) in the middle of the back glass. It is really hard to get use to.

Review

I have had my Aztek for a year and put only 10k miles on it. Even though I have had to replace everything but the seatbelt buckles I still love it. It is very comfortable and handles well with Michigan weather. I don't like the fuel economy (gas is 3.89 here) but can't complain since for it's size it does well. I only need a new fuel pump and I'll be back on the road with the silly looking thing. :D


Best Features

I love love love the roominess and the camping package!


Worst Features

Make them a little more reliable, most people who have one have kids and can't be stranded in dead winter in the middle of the intersection with a newborn and a 2 year old. GM didn't make the mechanical system very trustworthy.
