Turning radius was very good...Interior comfort A+. Being able to change the arrangemet of the back seats and to have a bench style along with bucket seats...yeyyeyeyeeeessss. You got it! The windshield display of the speed along with the security system ++++
Pros: The interior roominess
Cons: The Split rear door. Getting groceries out will be a chore.
Advice: Don't laugh till you've driven one. Take the blind fold off before driving.I never considered an Aztek before because I was driven away by the looks. You really need to drive one! Once you drive one you realize something really important. When you drive a car, your not outside looking at the vehicle, your inside looking out. My previous vehicles included a 2000 Suburban and a 2001 Accord EX coupe. This rates in comfort with best of them. It offers the comfort and security of a large SUV with the maneuverabilty of a much smaller car. I feel like I owe an apology to every Aztec owner I've laughed at in the past. My advice to others is test drive before you laugh. It will silence all snickering.
Pros: The fold up and removable back seats.
Cons: Split rear door, ackward to get things in and out of the back area.
Advice: Take one for a test drive and you'll understand the appeal.You can say whatever you want about the way the Aztec looks! But, once you have driven one or been for a ride in one ... you'll not care one bit about it's appearance. They are so much fun to drive. They have excellant visability. The smooth ride and comfort feels like a luxury car. My inlaws purchased thier Aztec (burgundy color) first. My wife and her siblings teased her parent's for buying such an ugly vehicle. But, after driving around in it ... a few months later my brother in law purcased an Aztec (black color) for his family. My wife and I were the latest in the family to purchase an Aztec (red color). You should see the driveway when we all get together for Sunday evening meals ... Aztecs every which way you look. We have taken ours on a raod trip to a backwoods cabin ... I can't wait to take it ona camping trip.
