About Pontiac Aztek

Along with its sister Buick Rendezvous, Pontiac Aztek was produced and marked by an American multinational corporation General Motors Company between July 2000 and August 2005 as a mid-size crossover. Originally introduced to replace the Pontiac Sunrunner in the Canadian market, Aztek was designed as the X Games and extreme sports arrived on the scene. Getting the highest CSI (Customer Satisfaction Index) scores in its class, serving as the pace car for the Daytona 500 and winning the appellation of "Most Appealing Entry Sport Utility Vehicle" from J.D. Power and Associates, Aztek still met a commercial failure and it was ended production in 2005 and got replaced by the Pontiac Torrent in the end.
Pontiac Aztek made its debut in 1999 as a concept car and was well received. It went on sale in Summer 2000 as a 2001 model and was offered in only one body style: 4-door crossover. Being one of the first automobiles to be designed entirely using computerized rapid-prototyping/rapid-visualization tools, Aztek came in two trim levels: base and GT (stands for Garbage Truck) as well as a Rally Edition and Limited Edition. Equipped with independent rear suspension, DVD entertainment system, XM satellite radio, a tire pressure monitoring system, optional CD/MP3 player and On-Star system, Pontiac Aztek was powered by a 3.4 L V6 and this engine sent power through a 4-speed automatic transmission to either the front wheels or four wheels.

When you could hear an odor of fuel in the car, see leaking fuel and coolant on the ground; the engine performance is decreasing, it may start to misfire, idle roughly, hesitate to accelerate or stumble during acceleration, stall at any time either when starting the engine or driving the vehicle. Before it is too late, once the Check Engine Light and Low Coolant Light come on, you should set out to inspect the Aztek fuel injector o-ring, intake manifold gasket, EGR valve gasket and throttle body gasket.
Second, braking and suspension failures are also troublesome issues for Pontiac Aztek drivers. The significance of the braking system speaks for itself as it could decide you could reach the destination safely or not.
