This car has never broken down once since December 1999 with only 400 miles to start with. I changed the oil religiously and never drove crazy. I've recently had the brake pads changed for the first time in 8 years. I'll be driving this car over 2,000 miles from TX to WA so I'll really be testing it now. The exterior black plastic runner along the driver's side door has come unglued and is about the only noticable defect. I don't know if I'm just lucky or if I have the only Tracker that was built to last.
Good gas mileage, compact size made it easy to park almost anywhere. Also super easy to make U turns in one motion
Would be better to have a removable had top instead of the standard soft top, but at $2,000+ to add that feature it's not cost effective
