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!
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
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.
