Great Car — It handles very well. It has lots of space. I would recommend this car to anyone who has a large family. It is much sportyer than a mini van with much more space and better handling. i love my car.

Pros

Loaded with LOTS of fun features....cooler console, leather interior, roof rack, head up display, built in tailgate seats/drink holders, large cargo space, sunroof, camping/tent accessories available

Cons

Has a V-6 engine so gas mileage isn't so great but expected for the size of engine

Ultimate Fun Tailgating / Camper/ Tent Vehicle Out There! — This is a very fun car with all of it bells and whistles. A great crossover vehicle that is roomy but compact at the same time....it doesn't feel overly large when driving it but has lots of cargo space and roomy comfortable interior. The Aztek is the car to have for tailgating, camping, or just needing a large cargo to haul stuff.

Perfect For My Teenager — There is not much to dislike at this point. We picked it up for my teenager who just got her permit. Looks like a safe enough and fun car to zip from home to school. I even enjoy taking it out for a spin.

Spacious, Useful And Fun With A Lot Of Personality! — Loved the space! Wish it had stow and go seats. Better without a spoiler. Spoiler blocks rear view, takes a bit to get used to. Love love love the cooler console. Every car should have this! I used it a ton!

Chiquita Is The Only Way! — I love this car! It is unique and different and comfortable. It fits my family and room in the back. I have had it a yr and a half and have only had to replace the brakes and battery. I plan on doing a tune up next.

Love It. Want Another. The Milinium Falcon Of Suv,, — Bought from an Auction, Black,camo-grey interior, disk player. Great buy,, It grew on me like a pretty fat girl, and then wala i love the car. Fun like a date that puts out a lot of kisses. Built with a little of extra weight or trim around it, no squeaks if you give it a little lube and finger with a wrench or to. Maintenance on electrical tape for wires during oil changes critical for a dirt road I had to drive her down. Cost over all I can't complain, I drove 1700 mile one way several times and many 600 mile trips along with a 80 mile daily commute when I had a Job. Added to 50k for 2 years and no break downs. I had to change anti-freeze to Pres tone and get rid of the recommended junk turning to a gel/slime, yes one cold day, but that not bad. Very reliable up to now 197k and at times I was 29 MPG with my HHO booster. Also installed a tornado, same as blazer. Someone bumped my rear bumper and wala my hatch key didn't work after that. I had a battery and alter meltdown all at once and 3 months after that replacement that alternator burnt the rectifier. Everything is tip top under the hood, All stock before problems hit. Not charging but tests off the car as good. Trouble shooting all fuses and wires now.

I'd Buy Another, If They Still Made Them. — Awesome vehicle. I average 26mpg. Any road surface is no problem. I have driven off road on light trails with no problem. Good handling. Very light on the brakes, first set replaced @ 75,000 miles on the front. Never had a breakdown.

Sure, It's Ugly, But It's A Great Car That I Would Reccomend To Anyone. By Stephanie
