Review of the 2001 Chevrolet Tracker

  • With its cheap plastic interior, unrefined ride, and gawky styling, the Tracker just doesn't compare with more modern mini utes like Ford's Escape and Toyota's RAV4.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Surprisingly roomy passenger accommodations, good value.

  • Cons

    Weak V6, meager cargo space.

  • What's New for 2001

    Now into its third year of the current bodystyle, the Tracker gets a new V6 and a new LT trim package on four-door models. Air conditioning, AM/FM cassette stereo, and child seat tether anchors are now standard on all models. The base 1.6-liter engine has been dropped in favor of the more powerful 127-horsepower 2.0-liter that is now standard on all two-door and base four-door models.

I love it, i love

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Tracker ZR2 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)

It is the best car I have ever owned! I am single, and if a single person can only have one vehicle, I believe it should be a 4 wheel drive. I can get out in the snow, but stay away from ice. I love the way it looks, perfect for hauling stuff around. I've used it as a moving van three times now. I've never had a problem, other than general maintenance; replaced a headlight bulb, windshield wipers, tires, etc. I've never even had to have the brakes worked on. It's absolutely perfect for me. I use it for everything, work, play, church, driving to the beach. And when I take it up to the mountains, I feel like I'm driving a BMW! I am so thankful! Can't imagine why they stopped making it.

All around good, smaller suv

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Tracker ZR2 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)

This car survived 2.5 winters in the Albany cold while being driven my a college student. While many friend's cars died due to the cold, my Tracker started anytime. The 4x4 is fun for the mountains, snow and the few times I was able to bring it off-road. The car is roomy for the two people in front, but has little space for the people in the back. I am 6'4" and fit in the car great, but rarely does someone sit behind me. Decent amount of room. I fit a 6 foot long bookcase inside and can handle a queen size bed on the top. I have had to put very little work into this car. Belts twice, alternator, front brakes, and front rotors. Under the hood this car is tight.




Love my tracker

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Tracker ZR2 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)

I have had my Tracker for over 5 years and have 168,000 miles it. The only money I put into this vechile was for regular maintenance. It handles great in the snow! This was one of the best purchases I have ever made. I will keep until it dies!




Expensive repairs

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Tracker ZR2 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)

My tracker does have 112,000 miles. It is in the shop again today for it's second rebuilt alternator. looking over since bought put about 3,000. in repairs. Brakes have been done four times, including roters. Also both rear brake springs broke and replaced. Belts broken & replaced and had to bypass A/C when broke due to astronomical price to replace. Last week power steering belt broken & replaced. Although it is still limping along, don't see much trade in value left.

4dr zr2 4wd suv 6cyl

Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Tracker ZR2 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)

I bought this vehicle because I wanted a small SUV 4wd for Michigan winter driving and the price was reasonable compared to others. 95k miles later and no major problems to report. On windy days you do have to hang on to steering wheel tight and watch your blindspots on side and rearview mirrors. Rack and pinion steering is great. Also easy stepping in and out of vehicle. Seating could use a little more padding. Easy to drive.

Needs better mileage

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Chevrolet Tracker ZR2 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)

Live in Michigan and commute 30 miles one way to work everyday. I cannot complain about my little SUV. I have had to replace an engine at about 80,000 miles, but even with a hole in the engine, my little SUV did not leave me stranded. It kept plugging along. I'm not real pleased with the gas mileage. I have to keep it above half a tank or it drinks the gas down something terrible, but then it does have 96,000 miles on it.
