"We love our Aztec. Too bad they were discontinued by the mfg. We would get a new one in a heart beat. They may not be the prettiest car but are very dependable, and functional. Is priced well and lasts for ever."

Excellant body and Interior.No Problems ever.

"I bought this used with 93000 miles on it. Nothing appeared to be wrong with it. Well not two weeks later the head gaskets blew. Supposedly the dealer fixed it. Well another couple months after that repair all kinds of lights were starting to turn on. It started with a Torque converter needing replaced (in the transmission $$$$$), then the traction light possibly just a wire corroded. Next the front started to shimmy and the abs light comes on. Then fuel gauge starts going crazy needs a fuel pump because one little switch went out $300 for just the part. Then it decided to start overheating, Head gaskets, intake gasket, water pump ended getting ruined, serpentine belt was fraying. It needs engine work, transmission work $300 parts, front end suspension work, the whole fuel tank has to be dropped and fuel pumped replaced for a $30 part. Every job is pricey even if the parts are not. Everything together to repair is worth twice the cost of the vehicle. Now keep in mind it had one owner before me appeared to be a mom car with a toddler based on music I found, it is in great shape as far as the interior and exterior. Looks great totally excellent condition except all the mechanics. Others I have spoken to have had about of problems with the this particular model of vehicle. I would not recommend buying one no way no how. I went from 95 Honda Accord with rust and repairs 180000 miles but it ran. After paying $4000 in Sept. 2013 and 6 months I couldn't drive it anymore. So with a discounted $1500 in part and repairs plus 3 more months I might get to drive it soon but it will still need another $2000 in repairs. JUNKN WITH A CAPITOL "J"."

"I bought my 2003 Aztek in 2005 with 33,000 miles on it. I now have 178,700 miles on it, and it still drives quite well with no issues. The AWD is fantastic. I've been through deep snow, and a little off road, and never even come close to getting stuck. I've kept up on the regular maintenance (especially oil changes), and a few minor wear & tear repairs, but I can't complain. I've taken good care of the body, keeping it waxed as much as possible, and it does not have even a spec of rust on it. The suspension is amazing to look at underneath. I really think the Aztek was ahead of its time. People used to say it was ugly, but look at the current crossovers today. Most of them resemble the Aztek to an extent. I was recently car shopping to replace it, but eventually gave up because I could not find anything within my price range that I liked better. A couple of negatives: the hub assemblies tend to go bad. And when you replace them (if you do the work yourself), the axle nut MUST be torqued to specification or below, or you will be doing it again. The fuel mileage isn't the greatest, thanks most to the weight and the AWD. Other than that, I love my Aztek (or Ardvark like my brother calls it), and I've really gotten used to it over the last 9 years. The turning radius is superb, and the ride is still pretty tight and quiet. Everything still works like it's supposed to. It's versatility is amazing. I often take out the back seats and haul firewood and mulch. It has tons of room. It is deceptively spacious on the inside. And comfortable. In fact, up until last year when we got a minivan, the Aztek was the family car for pretty much everything, including for road trips. (It is still very capable, but the minivan serves that purpose better) The car has been extremely reliable, rugged, dependable, and comfortable. I want to see how long it will last. I am going to keep it."
