Review of the 2002 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 or Toyota's RAV4.

    Low price, available six-cylinder engine, rugged ladder-frame construction.

  • Cons

    Weak base engine, meager cargo space.

Regretful purchase

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Tracker 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I have owned this vehicle for 5 years now & cannot wait to get rid of it. There is absolutely no pep to the car very sluggish. If you happen to hit a bump in the road the vehicle actually jumps. The ride is rough and the vehicle will only go into 4wd when the car is at a complete stop which can be very inconvient. Drivers side window has squeeked ear splitting since almost day one. Brought it in to the dealer stopped squeeking for about 6 mths & then came back. Back door on drivers side will not open. Lock will not pull up for nothing. Windows fog up continuously in the winter so defrost has to stay on.




Good, honest, basic, cheap 4wd

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Tracker 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

I bought the Tracker because it was the only GM model available locally with a 5-spd (I had GM$). The Tracker is not refined, comfortable, not a very good freeway car. It is fun to drive, great on dirt and gravel roads, gets better gas mileage than any SUV (24 avg), has decent cargo space and is reliable (check cons. rep.). It is much more Jeep-like than the CRV or RAV, but with GM$ and rebates it's about $5,000 cheaper. I chose the 5 speed 4cyl, which drives like a late 80s Japanese truck but feels rugged and is fun and economical. With 4WD, PW, PDL and cruise, I paid (after rebates) $14,500. I've had it for a year now, and like it more than when I first bought it.

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Tracker 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

We bought this rig to save us some fuel (also have a Dodge 1500). We bought the 2.0 L inline 4. While it's a little weak, it makes up for it by being frugel. We broke this one in fast and loose crusing in the 75-85 MPH range from CA to Denver and back. At 80+ we were getting 25+ MPG I'm 6'6" and this was the only mini SUV we found that had enough leg room for me (barely). We are satisified with it so far.




Best mini suv ever

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Tracker 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

This is the absolute worst ownership experience I've had with a vehicle. It's under-powered. Completely worthless when it comes to value. I had it appraised and the thing lost so much of it's value, that I can't even trade it in. I owe 8 thousand dollars more than then car is worth. Thumbs down to the Suzuki.... ummm Chevrolet Tracker.




Very good value for the

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Tracker 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)

At $14,000,the Tracker is a very good value. Good handling, adequate power, good gas mileage (22 to 28 mpg), and nicely equipped even with no factory options. However, that the Tracker is no CR-V or RAV4. Its ride is considerably busier, the quality of the materials is inferior and the rear seat is tight. Buyers who are considering more upscale Trackers (LT or ZR2) should be aware that the fancier Trackers, even with the big-time rebates, are approaching CR-V prices and I can attest that my CR-V outclasses my Tracker in many respects. People who want an inexpensive 4X4 will probably be pleased with a base Tracker.
