Love my tracker

Vehicle: 1997 Geo Tracker 2dr SUV w/Soft Top

The Geo Tracker was my first new car and I still own it. I've only had to change the Battery and tires so far in 10 years of owning it. Great, reliable and fun SUV.




Go little tracker, go!

Not bad for a such a tiny little truck. I recently bought a 1997 and I love it. Interior is comfortable, although for someone bigger than me (5'2" or taller) may find driver seat umcomfortable. Convertible top takes time to put up or down, but is very nice on those hot days. I drive an hour and a half to school or work everyday and highway driving is pleasant, however, high-speed passing power is only "acceptable" in my 5- speed. Gas mileage is a bonus, with the amount I save on gas from a V8 S10 pickup, my loan really does pay itself off! It's an awesome little truck, I must say. Unfortunately, all my friends with pickups have dubbed it "The little truck that thought it could....but couldn't"




Fun dependable suv

Fun to drive, great gas mileage, drives more like a car than a truck. Very dependable, had no problems. Rag top is great.

Don't count on this vehicle

Vehicle: 1997 Geo Tracker 2dr SUV w/Soft Top

Many problems with this vehicle. Even though it was covered by the warranty for the first 50,000 miles; I had the radio go out, the a/c quit working, the cassette player broke and they refused to fix it, due to the daytime running headlights-the headlights were constantly being replaced. Right after 50,000 miles, the starter and ignition went out and also the transmission.
