1994 Geo Tracker SUV 2dr SUV 4WD w/Soft Top


Review

I have a 1994 Geo tracker which I purchased during the worst part of the winter in 2010 when South Eastern PA was hit with a huge snow storm. It had 100,000 when I purchased it and now has only 111,000, however what I have put this poor little tracker through in this 11,000 miles is probably equivalent to over a million miles normal driving. This is by far without question the toughest vehicle I have ever owned including vehicles designed strictly for offroad use. This is capable over going through just about anything in stock form


Favorite Features

If you are looking for the absolute toughest vehicle you can purchase short of actual military spec vehicles something heavily modified this is absolutely it. The best part about it is you get a car that is 100% reliable and can still manage over 23mpg with upgraded tires, suspension, and a locker. I typically do not take the time to review things but honestly my tracker and GEO / Suzuki / Chevy deserve it in this case, people refer to trackers like they were a joke on wheels and best forgotten however I have beat my unmercifully for 4 years and have never replaced more than a clutch, starter, and wheel bearing. This was EXTREME conditions on some of the worst trails on the east coast.


Suggested Improvements

This is by far not the worlds fastest SUV and in fact its probably closer to the worlds slowest once you put 30" plus tires and add taller suspension with drivetrain upgrades such as a spool in the rear. HOWEVER, you have to keep in mind what you should be buying it for and what it was designed for which is an absolutely indestructable, insanely cheap, ultra reliable little SUV that with a few cheap upgrades will go places jeeps can only dream of going. There is a reason why these vehicles have such a strong following in the offroad community. If you want an unstoppable trail rig thats still capable of daily duty you must get 29" or bigger tires, 2" lift, and a locker, skid plates help too.

Review

The tracker was purchased in 96 from a dealership. Wonderful handling, ok stereo, and great gas mileage. It was handed down to me by mom mother when i received my license at 16. It now has 191,294 miles on it and its still runs perfect. My starter Just messed up the other day but thats because i am a delivery driver and turn my car on and off a lot. But i found another one at a junk yard for $35. So I fixed it quite easily. The tracker is not necessarily the safest but i have never had an accident, Nor a scratch. Wonderful car! wouldn't trade for the world.

Review

When I have taken it off road, it handled well. 4x4 is good in snow. My Tracker has 132,220 miles on it and it is still going strong.


Favorite Features

The soft top and the low range for the 4wheel drive.

Review

Zero options beyond both hard and soft top. Added CD, hood shield, vent-visors and fog lights later. Paid $12,500 Cdn (about $8000 US at the time.) Great runabout. Easy to park. Still factory exhaust, suspension and rear brakes after 10 years / 200,000 miles. Uses 1 cup oil / 3000 miles. Not a lot of power, but will slowly get up to about 90 mph if necessary. Hauls a surprising weight without bottoming out. Handles like a big go-cart (no p/s). In snow or muck the front goes up and the back digs in. Incredibly easy to do own maintenance. Nearly all parts are cheap and readily accessible. Can lift transmission without a jack! Boy, did they screw up a good thing by changing this design to rounded and then discontinuing it to become the Chevy Equinox for more than twice the price. Closest vehicle now is Kia Sportage.


Favorite Features

Excellent first vehicle. Looks funky for kids. Buying is OK with parents because low power. Great visibility and fuel economy. Incredibly reliable in the base model. Unbreakable drive train on-road. Fantastic bright metallic green. Made in Canada.


Suggested Improvements

Rounded design

Review

This truck is excellent for students and to ride it with your friends. Its my first car and I love it. I haven't had any major problems since I have it. Its small, tall, everybody looks at you, and future collectible car, a "micromachine"!


Favorite Features

The convertible its really cool. You feel like you are flying... yes flying! excellent for lovers!


Suggested Improvements

Suspension, you could rollover if you dont brake right at sharp turns. That's why it was disconnued.
