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.

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.

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,
My sister bought the '94 Tracker, drove
it to Florida w/family of 4. Sold it
to me in '99. The Tracker has never
let me down. It has taken me through
the worst winters! My door locks
froze, but if you keep it in the
garage, or don't lock the doors, it's
fine. It's been the most dependable
vehicle I've ever owned. Great on gas,
easy to maneuver and park. Sold it to
my daughter in '03. The vehicle is
still in great shape and runs like a
charm, even though it just got t-boned
by another driver and the Insurance
Company says it's totaled. Drove it
away from the accident! You just can't
kill these Trackers!!!
