Good, honest, basic, cheap 4WD jeep
By MikeinMO on
Vehicle2002 Chevrolet Tracker 4WD 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI bought the Tracker because it was the
only GM model available locally with a
5-spd (I had GM$). The Tracker is not
refined, comfortable, not a very good
freeway car. It is fun to drive, great
on dirt and gravel roads, gets better
gas mileage than any SUV (24 avg), has
decent cargo space and is reliable
(check cons. rep.). It is much more
Jeep-like than the CRV or RAV, but with
GM$ and rebates it's about $5,000
cheaper. I chose the 5 speed 4cyl,
which drives like a late 80s Japanese
truck but feels rugged and is fun and
economical. With 4WD, PW, PDL and
cruise, I paid (after rebates) $14,500.
I've had it for a year now, and like it
more than when I first bought it.
Best FeaturesA surprisingly fun and useful car. It's gotten a bad rap from those comparing it to more refined small SUV's, but if you are looking for a good city or offroad SUV it is certainly worth considering.
Worst FeaturesIt is what it is - a cheap Japanese truck-like SUV. Everything feels a little less than solid. The engine feels very dated and not smooth.
