1990 Geo Tracker LSi 2dr SUV 4WD w/Soft Top


Review

On a daily basis this vehicle continues to impress me. It is trouble free, (scheduled maintenance notwithstanding)is peppy when you get the engine into the power band, and handles well in the city. It is fun to drive and tackles snow covered streets with ease. The engine and drive line appears to be almost bullet-proof. This little car has a very strong cult following. Compare prices of Edmunds and Kelly Blue Book and then see what people are actually paying for these little 4X4's. The cost difference between what the auto appraisers say they are worth and the actual price that people are paying for a decent Tracker with under 100,000 miles can be as much as $2,000.00 more. Very significant!


Best Features

The seats fit great. I am 6-1, 230 lbs and they are very comfortable. I also like the way your hand falls instinctively onto the shifter. The soft top is easy to take on and off, and it is great on gas. Parts are readily available and is simple enough for me to work on successfully. Folding rear seats


Worst Features

Though this vehicle seems a bit primitive, much like an old military Jeep, this durability adds to its charm. Though there are no cup holders in this vehicle new, there are many aftermarket trays available.

Review

this is a great little very reliable car. I have only had 2 major repairs in the 13 years I have had the car. Of course I took care of regular preventive maintenance and that helped. The car sits high enough to see well in trafic. The seats are why I bought it. I am 6 ft tall and the head room is great. The swing open door in the back is more manageable than the swing up type. Loading groceries etc was always easy and very easy to unload. On the highway it is peppy and had good pick up nad go.


Best Features

The seats were firm, high and sat well for a 6ft person. Reliability was exceptional.


Worst Features

Ratio of length of steering wheel to leg space was a little short. For a short person it was probably no problem. Slightly hard to put down the back seat, as had to pull up handles on each side of seat while trying to lower seat.

Review

Had it five years, since 70K miles. Now has 110K+ miles. Gas, oil, wiper blades, front brake pads, and one $57 emissions sensor. Slightly oversized tires have been so understressed, we're getting fantastic mileage from them. Most reliable vehicle I've owned in 30 years of driving.

Review

Cool design, very utilitarian. Four wheel drive is great. Hard top is very safe. I like all the amenities of a larger SUV, but with the effeciancy and logic of a small car. The LSI model is the best way to go. Lots of upgradable parts available, even on e- bay. Rally wheels are cool on the LSI. Insurance is great and costs are minimum to keep this little truck. Great truck for smart drivers.


Best Features

Compactness, Four wheel utility, LSI seats are cool -captain like. LSI has door covers and more interior coverings. Doesn't roll over -unless your dumb and don't know how to drive an SUV. Lots of cool clubs to help you out with ideas on souping it up -like mine.


Worst Features

Get better tires (BF goodrich All Terrain KO's), super unleaded fuel -it doesn't use much, Keep the air filter clean,Bosch Plus 4 platinum spark pluggs. Those simple things will keep your little truck running smooth. The 5-Spd, isfaster and you can use more of the engins power.
