"I love the Azteks so much my husband and I EACH have our own. Bought them both brand new (have a 2003 and a 2005). Got great low prices on them since people in general did not like the way they look; dealers wanted to move them out. My 2005 has not been a headache - nothing weird happening maintenance-wise, just routine wear and tear. I commute 48 miles one way with it, and I've gotten as high as 28mpg. It just keeps going and going! The cargo capacity is great, especially when the rear seats are either folded up or removed. I LOVE the stereo that came with it. The sliding rear cargo tray is a neat accessory that makes using the rear storage area that much easier and convenient. Cup holders AND accessory power jacks everywhere. Easy to get into and out of; great view of the road since you're sitting higher than in a sedan."
"Have had my vehicle for 3 years now. Originally bought it with so many electrical issues that it didn't run. Can go ANYWHERE! Moved my entire house in three loads. Can fit a queen size mattress in the back. Has capabilities of a truck, but comfort of a car. For people needing a car that can do anything, this is for you! My favorite feature is the fully removable rear seats; HUGE plus!!! Electrical issues are annoying, but you can deal with them. None are life threatening. All around AWESOME car! Don't discount it just because it's styling is different!"
"It may be kind of ugly, but this car really serves it's purpose. I bought mine at 185,000 miles and have driven it about 15,000 more, and it's worked wonderfully. I have had the odd repair here and there (an alternator and fuel pump), but for the most part, this thing is reliable and drives well. It's smooth, has a good suspension, very good steering, good in snow, decent tower, decent gas mileage, and comfortable. It isn't perfect, obviously - but it's 17 years old and over 200,000 miles and still drives perfectly well. Really like the steering especially! Visibility isn't great, but it does alright. It's mostly plastic, so it doesn't rust - pros and cons of that are obvious."
