I now own the 1995 Geo Tracker that my dad bought new off the showroom floor. It's almost at 180k. Nothing beats it in the city. It zips through traffic. Even with a 2wd, it climbs better than my 4x4 truck. With the 235/65/R15 tires it rips corners to pieces, and wind sheer is eliminated. Any more power and I'd be drifting with the 5spd. It's the most reliable car/ truck I've ever owned. And who needs the highway when you can take the beach with the top down.
Large cargo area with back seat up. Easy to work on. Seats four adults comfortably. No nonsense gauges. Non- invasive 8valve motor(no engine damage if timing belt breaks). Good gas mileage. Fits anywhere. Cup holders do their job well. Durable suspension. nothing breaks.
Bigger motor. Bigger gas tank. Power windows. Cruise control. More highway friendly gearing.
