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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

4WD, seat fold down completely in back, reliable.


Suggested Improvements

Should be able to switch to 4WD when car is moving.

2002 Chevrolet Tracker LT 4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this car because I wanted something versatile and suited to outdoor adventures, but which would also be practical for city driving -- that is exactly what this car is. I took it offroading in the Northern California wilderness and in Death Valley several times, and the Tracker proved itself to be tough, well-built, and the short wheel base lets it go almost anywhere. Unfortunately, the short wheel base is also the most negative aspect of the car. It was very squirrely on the freeway and I spun out a few times on wet or snowy roads. When I blew out a tire on I5, the car spun out of control and was totaled. The squirrely-ness of the car is my only complaint - no mechanical problems.


Favorite Features

Tough design that is also cute, very reliable, pretty good gas mileage (19- 25), fits in any parking space


Suggested Improvements

Maybe lengthen the body so that the car is not so unstable (tipsy, squirrely)

Review

This is a great small car. Easy to drive, easy to park, and very smooth and comfortable for being on a truck frame. It will be sad some day to give this car up as it is the last of the really small affordable SUVs.


Favorite Features

Small size. Real 4WD.


Suggested Improvements

None.

2002 Chevrolet Tracker 2WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I figure this would be a weak little starter vehicle, but it turned out to be a comfortable, very spacious, spunky little SUV. Not much luxury but all the necessities, and very, very reliable.


Favorite Features

Very roomy


Suggested Improvements

The only problem with this vehicle is that it's no longer in production.

Review

I love this little SUV. I purchased 2 years ago and have had zero issues accept for daily wear and tear. The 4WD works well although the turning radius leaves something to be desired. I've driven in several snow storms with no issues. Parking is excellent especially in city driving where the Tracker with its higher profile and compact size makes parallel parking a breeze. This is an excellent little work horse for a mother with one or two children and perfect for a college student in a snowy climate. It is dependable, fun to drive, and save to drive due to the higher profile driving on a highway and for it's 4WD capability.


Favorite Features

I love the compact status and handling. It is very comfortable either on highway driving or driving to the supermarket.


Suggested Improvements

The only suggestion I would have is to make the back end a little bit larger for storage.
