We've had our Tracker since Sept 99. No expensive issues not covered under warranty.On our third exhaust system from converter back. To be fair though, snapped off the first two (don't ask!) Really aggressive tires are a must if you plan to off road. Wind roar is bad, but thats after 4 deer in 5 years. Body panels don't allign quite as good as when new.Wind WILL shift lanes for you.
We like the ride, and the ease of entry. I'm 6'1" so height is important. Fold down seats means more room to haul stuff. I think the 4WD would climb a tree with the right tires.Mph is O.K. for an automatic, power is acceptable for a 4 cyl. For it's size, expected better from the 2.0 4-banger.
