"I love my aztek. people made fun of me for how it looks but i think it looks unique and cool. mine came with a pull out tailgating table and a attachable tent. if you fold down the back seats you can put a mattress there and sleep when camping. Iv'e used it for a drive in movie and it was awesome. I babysit a lot and travel with kids from 2 years to 11 years and i never feel unsafe. ive driven 8 hours on vacation and never felt uncomfortable. I added a touch screen radio with navigation and it just completed my car. I have had to put a lot of money into it (over 2 grand) but the previous owner didnt take care of it. once i started getting oil changes regularly i havent had many problems. Ive driven this car up and down the east coast and never regretted this car. i love the mpg, i drove from the middle of long island to montauk and only used 1/8 a tank. I put about 60$ in every week if i drive alot, otherwise 30$ keeps my car happy for a week. always get a carfax before buying a car and dont assume the previous owner took the best care, so you may need to put some work into it."
"I purchsed this car new and I love-love it and I have personally put every mile on it. Best car I've owned. Great Angular shape - doesn't look like every other vehicle. Very reliable. Rides great. Roomy seats and lots of cargo space about 30 inches behind the back seats. Wish they were still manufacturing-I would definitely buy another. We have used it, I mean really used it: fishing,pleasure rides, hunting,camping, bicycling, hiking trips. I would love to and did recommend it but you can't find them anymore."
"I love this vehicle and am sad that at some point I will have to let it go. With that being said, the V-6 was more than ample, and it was able to handle anything I could throw at it. It was the perfect vehicle for vacations and work.
Able to easily fit 4x8 sheets of plywood, and drywall. Made shopping for a new car because in the first 140,000 miles it typically acheive 24-26 mpg. On longer trips it got in the range of 30 mpg. At 180,000 miles I am still getting between 17-21 mpg. Which begs the question, why have cars become less fuel efficient in this vehicle class.
There were no major repairs that weren't covered by the warranty, and at 180,000 miles, it easily has 40,000 more.
The Aztek handled all weather incredibly well to include several NE Ohio winters, and a few Pacific NW winters, able to handle the roads when cities were closed due to snow for ski trips.
The Tent was also an amazing feature that made the vehicle more versatile and easier to go camping."
