2001 Pontiac Aztek FWD from North America
Other than the afore mentioned minor glitches, I have had no other problems with this car
Windshield wipers stuck together.
Rear hatch lock sticks.
The wiper problem was fixed once Pontiac recognized the problem.
The hatch lock was fixed, but it still sticks in cold weather.
After reading other reviews I guess I am lucky. I love this car. I have been driving problem free for 33K miles. I have a friend that is considering getting a 2005 she is so impressed. I purchased an extended warranty and wonder if I will have to use it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I also love this vehicle. Unfortunately I had other problems. First off, the Air Conditioner Compressor failed during the summer. It stopped working 6 days before the end of the warranty!!! Lucky me! Wrong, the GM dealership who fixed it, had me back there the very next year, after the warranty on the replacement expired. Had to talk to the District manager to get that one fixed for just the labor cost. Due to the heavy doors on the vehicle, I had problems one the doors swung open and loosend the hinges, which today after multiple repairs from the dealership, still has some play in it. Pain chips near door front. The most recent problem is that I have an Intake Gasket Leak ($800+ to fix). According to the dealer and other mechanics, this is common for this engine! Do yourself a favor and get your RAD FLUSHED, or that System flush they offer to prevent this problem. Never in 1000 years did I ever think I'd have to fix that! It's a 2001!!
After all this... I still love the beast...it's a lot of fun to drive and still gets the looks!
