    I Have Had It For 4 Years And It Got Me Through My College Years Fine. — Wish they were still made. I would purchase a new Aztek today. Shows almost no signs of rust even below the door frames. The bar in the back window does not bother me at all after the first week. All in all a great car.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Always starts and has always been very durable. This is a car that you grow into. I mean it looks a little funny but it handles and drives great. Get over the looks.

    Cons: Plastic lumbar support knobs seem to break on most all of these cars.

    Az-01 — I would say braking and handeling where the only good things for performance. acceleration was pretty bad. the build quality was ok in a sence of materials but you could't see you blind spots and it is hard to get out of the pack because there is a large post at your feet. the apperance was good it looks good and dosen't dirty easily. insurance and gas was ok but repairs where costly. very costly, the computer, the shocks, the tie rods. we finally got rid of it when a 2000$ repair came up

    Pros: good looks

    Cons: high maintenance

    Best Car Ever — This car has all the style with the most interior room I've ever seen. The pick up on it is amazing, and the fuel economy isn't as bad as I'd imagine. I love driving it and it has a very smooth ride. I would highly recommend it to anyone. I haven't had to replace anything on mine except for routine maintenance. Brakes, Oil change, tires, etc.

    Pros: Great sound system, ride, and gas mileage

    Cons: getting teased for driving a soccer moms car!

    As Long As You Get One With Very Low Mileage You Will Love It! — Great car, many features, great sound, handling, everything you could want. Once you pass 100,000 miles everything goes bad...

    Pros: Look at it, it's awesome!

    Cons: Electrical problems, very costly to repair

    My Wifes Vehicle — Over all its a pretty decent vehicle, I of course had to do the head gaskets and intake gaskets as with all GM 3.4 liter engines usually require.

    Pros: pretty reliable, we got the tent option thrown in the purchase deal which was cool. It's easier to get the girls kids in and out of than the two door gp.

    Cons: The colour. likes fuel

    Bring Back The Aztek And Pontiac For That Matter — The Aztek is a love it or hate it vehicle. But anyone who hates them, has never driven one. I'll promise you that. It's an incredibly versatile vehicle. I've used it for long distance trips and camping, I've hauled several hundred pounds of landscaping bricks in it, as well as numerous sheets of plywood since they'll lay flat on the floor.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: What CAN'T you do with an Aztek???

    Cons: Pontiac doesn't build them anymore!
