2004 Pontiac Aztek Fwd 4dr SUV (3.4L 6cyl 4A)


I bought the Aztek because I had GMcard dollars I needed to use, it had big incentives, and I wanted a wagon. The Aztek has far exceeded my expectations. After 43k miles, not a single problem. I get 26 mpg on the freeway, the car rides like a Buick (this is great for freeway, bad for enthusiasts), it has over 100 cubic feet of storage (more than any wagon - check), and the exterior design is actually looking better as it ages. Interior design is a little cheesy, but incredibly functional and versatile. Engine and handling are lazy, but smooth and competent. My wife is in love with this car, and it has been an unmatched value. Azteks made after the first years are surprisingly reliable

Best Features

Practicality, freeway ride, smooth engine, reliability, sound system, cruise control, fit and finish.

Worst Features

Flabby, but competent and smooth handling. Engine isn't overly eager. Interior design is functional, but reeks of 90s GM cheezitude.
