    Does anyone own a Pontiac Aztec?

    I think some of them look cool, like the newer black ones. Some are just butt ugly. Who owns one and how do you like it?

    I think the Aztec defines function over form. That is one ugly vehicle but I've heard they are quite flexible and functional.

    Thought that GM was going to shutter their plants in their big plan to layoff 30% of their workers...Aztecs may be history just lkike their previous brethrans.

    Yeah, Aztecs are cool. Real cheap in the spring.

    Re: Does anyone own a Pontiac Aztec?

    The Aztec was only produced from 2002 to 2005 and was one of the worst selling mass-produced vehicles of all time. It typically gets nods in Forbe's Worst 10 cars report every year and is considered to be one of the biggest financial flops in the modern vehicle era.

    That said, they were probably just a tad before their time as they were one of the first "cross-over" vehicles that are now hugely popular.

    Re: Does anyone own a Pontiac Aztec?

    The big problem with the Aztec is that it's built on a minivan platform. It was too expensive to modify the platform to make the Aztec look "right", so it came out looking all crappy.

    It's actually not a horrible vehicle, other than it's one of the ugliest creations ever to come out of Detroit.

    I think it appeals to me because standing next to it, I look good by comparison.

    Pontiac Aztek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    GM forecast sales of up to 75,000 Azteks per year, and needed to produce 30,000 annually to break even. Just 27,322 were sold in 2001 with more than 50% being sold to captive rental company fleets or used by General Motors executives.

    Re: Does anyone own a Pontiac Aztec?

    The Aztec fascinated me. I always wondered what executive looked at that butt ugly design and greenlighted it for production.

    What fascinated me even more was when I saw someone driving it. I always figured that they must have gotten a great deal on it. Something like, Pontiac included a wet bar and a hooker in the back.

    There is a radio talk show host in Austin that refers to his as "My Black Aztec".

    I agree. Every time I seen an Aztec it reminds me of the Simpsons episode where Homer designs that car and ruins his brother's business.
