2004 Pontiac Aztek

Call it the Barry Bonds of crossover vehicles.  Looking like a compact hatchback that's jacked up on steroids, the Pontiac Aztek is either loved or hated, though once people see it in action, they can't deny its performance and versatility.  Available in one model, either with front-wheel drive, or AWD Versatrak (which kicks in in low traction situations), the 2004 Pontiac Aztek sees few changes.  The biggest is a Rally package, aimed at a sportier look.  It adds chrome exhaust tips, new interior and exterior trim, a lower ride height, and a body-colored grille.  An MP3 option places audio controls on the steering wheel.

Despite customer comments about being underpowered, the 2004 Aztek still carries the same 3.4-liter, 185-hp V6 and 4-speed automatic transmission.  It seats five, and has an incredibly versatile storage capability, with many different compartments in the cabin and trunk.  A fold-down tailgate, removeable cooler, roll-out cargo floor, and optional tent package are aimed at a youthful, adventurous market, even though the Aztek is not meant for off-roading.

Highlights of the 2004 Aztek, according to owners, are great gas mileage, easy handling, AWD performance, a smooth and quiet ride, incredible amounts of room for cargo, and comfortable seats.  They love all the options, such as the cargo tray, cooler, and heads-up dash display (like those used by fighter pilots!).  Downsides are a heavy hatch that is supposed to release with the touch of a button, but takes several tries to make it work.  The rear spoiler causes major blind spots and takes getting used to.  Some owners wish for more rear leg room.  And the Aztek seems to depreciate very quickly, which is good news for used car buyers, but not for sellers.
