Edmunds' Expert Review

With its cheap plastic interior, unrefined ride and limited cargo space, the Tracker pales in comparison with more modern mini-utes like Ford's Escape or Toyota's RAV4.

2004 Highlights

The two-door body style has been discontinued taking with it the base four-cylinder engine and the five-speed manual transmission.

This compact suv is the total package, it has power to pull a popup camper and the guts to go mudding. I love it
4.5/5 stars, I have loved 2 trackers!

4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)
This is my second Tracker and they have both been wonderful - not even a lightbulb went out on my 2001 in three years of ownership! - I find it dependable, fun to drive and just what I was looking for - all for a very reasonable price. The back seat could use a bit more room, but then, I don't sit back there, so I don't really care!
5/5 stars, chevy traker 2002

4WD 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)
I just love the car and would buy another one. It is very comfy and it is nice looking...I get compliments on how nice the car looks all the time. I goes great in the snow and ice and I have not had any problems with it during bad weather.
5/5 stars, More than you think!
Emily,
LT Rwd 4dr SUV (2.5L 6cyl 4A)
First off this car or at least mine has a tank size of about 13 or 14, not 16 and gets 26 mpg on the highway you can freeway drive about 4.5 hours w/o gasing up. It doesn't do steep hills at freeway speeds well (rpm goes through the roof) but most other cars cant or don't either. It's a great little car with good visablity and handles a canoe on top like a pro.

Should I lease or buy a 2004 Chevrolet Tracker?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
