Hello 2017 Aztek Fans,

I see that this community is a little smaller than in years past, hopefully a few people will see my message.

 I recently acquired a 2001 Aztek. She is a brown AWD beauty. I got her from a Copart Salvage yard auto auction. She runs and drives. She will be taking part in a Gambler 500. A GPS coordinate style scavenger-hunt/off road rally in late August in the scenery of rural Iowa. This is a budget focused  event, so i am looking for low cost items.

There will be 2 days of camping. Which means, I need a tent. Unfortunately, My junk yard darling did not come with one. If you have a tent that you are willing to part with, please let me know.

If you have any off road equipment to an Aztek that you wanna pitch me, go ahead.

If you have something silly that you think I should race with on the Aztek, let me know.

I will start a page building thread on this site to go over the work being done and her progress on the trail later this year.

Hello everybody, my name is Ryan I just joined the Aztek fan club today. Not sure how many people still use this site. I own a 2001 Aztek, bought it a year ago. I bought it with 175k kilometers on it for $1100. its in great shape, no rust, always been undercoated every year. Didnt cost anything to get it on the road. Its my first vehicle and i love it. So far it hasnt caused me any major problems. Ive been doing minor mods since i bought it such as tinting the taillights and signal lights, yellow fog light tint, painted the oem rims black, and some audio upgrades. For 16 years old it is a great car in great shape. I made an instagram account to post pictures of it @infamous_aztek

Hey mom2niltac - I'm way late seeing this, but welcome to the club. I got my '03 Tek in 2009, and she quickly became my favourite vehicle that I have ever owned. Unfortunately, I had to give her up last July, just too much needed repairing to make sense - tranny needed a rebuild, AC was shot, had a control arm issue, and a couple of other things, but the AC and the tranny sealed the deal. Now driving an '09 Santa Fe, but miss my Aztek every day. Wishing you many more years with your baby, glad you found your way to the AFC - lots of great info and great people here!

We bought our 2005, who we call Baby, 2/28/05.  We have put 145,000 miles on her and hope to put many more on her.  Had we known that it would be the last year and how few were made, back then, we would have found a way to buy a 2nd one.
Purely by accident, I came upon this site and I really wish I would have 10 years ago!
There were several Aztek groups on Yahoogroups, but they are just porn now and were by the time I joined.
If there is anyone still out there who drives a 2005, especially, I hope to see some replies.
If anyone has any sort of meet up or rally in the west, would love to know.  I live in SoCal.
Was mad when Pontiac chose to discontinue the Aztek line, but was even more mad when Pontiac was gone.  We love Pontiacs.  Husband drove a Pontiac "muscle car" when we met (nearly 40 years ago now), which we had to give up when we got married and had a baby within 1 1/2 years of that.

Welcome Jetshack!

Thanks for the pictures...  looks like you found a good one.

Radio lights - I had to replace those on mine.   The bulbs lay flat to the circuit board (the leads have to make a 90 degree bend so that the bulbs can lay flat).  The bulbs are soldered to the circuit board and if I remember correctly, they had a colored sleeve that I transferred over to the new bulbs.  If one bulb has died chances are the other 2 are on their way out too and I'd recommend changing all three.

I just searched ebay and found this seller has bulbs that should work.  You want to avoid bulbs with short leads that stick straight up from the board.

Here's another one...

Each bulb lights up (back lights) about 1/3 of the display.

Hope this helps!

Great looking car. Congratulations on the find. I am also fairly new, having bought my 2005 Rally last September. It was a repo, so not as primo as yours, but really not too bad.

Agreed, though not a busy forum any more, it has a wealth of information that you can only get from other's experiences.

I know this board doesn't see the traffic it once did. But I've found it to be a valuable resource.

Anyway, I'm the proud new owner of a 2005 Aztek. Bought it for $3500 with just under 100k miles. The former owners took immaculate care of this vehicle. Every service record documented, no collisions, and only one small dent in the rear passenger door (might be a door ding).

I have the tent still in the box and the pull out storage thing doesn't look too have been ever used. The interior is in awesome shape also, the only issue I've found inside is that the stock radio has a light burned out...
