I have a 1994 Geo tracker which I purchased during the worst part of the winter in 2010 when South Eastern PA was hit with a huge snow storm. It had 100,000 when I purchased it and now has only 111,000, however what I have put this poor little tracker through in this 11,000 miles is probably equivalent to over a million miles normal driving. This is by far without question the toughest vehicle I have ever owned including vehicles designed strictly for offroad use. This is capable over going through just about anything in stock form
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.
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!!!

I bought my 4x4 Geo Tracker in Europe in '95. Thought it was a good looking, sporty, little vehicle. Although the price was a little high, I was satisfied. The vehicle I owned at the time was a Chevy G-20 conversion van. If you've ever driven and tried to park a car in Europe you'd understand the setbacks to owning a huge vehicle. My Geo was great for these driving conditions. Although it does give you fits going up and down the mountainside, having a 5 spd allows you to use a lower gear and get the result you are looking for (making it to the top). I'm buying another vehicle this year, but I'm not getting rid of my Tracker!
