Pros

four wheel drive, nice little vehicle

Cons

only four cylinders.  and it's a geo tracker.

Tracker Review — this is an easy car to drive, featuring four wheel drive, a five speed transmission, and a removeable cloth top. great in the snow, even though it is light. kinda cold, and ugly, without much power coming from the four cylinder mitsubishi engine, but versatile, fuel economic, and useful.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

the Fun Factor!

Cons

Not big enough to take long trips in.

Great Fun! — Very fun to drive, love to 'scoot' around town in it, it can turn around in a parking spot (well, compared to the mini-van!). It is purple and known about town as the "Eeyore" mobile. It has needed no repairs other than routine maintenance, very inexpensive to own, great gas mileage!

Pros

Fun to drive, great gas mileage.

Cons

Slow, top heavy, not exactly a "cool car"

? — My Tracker is not what you would think of when you say performance. It does tow well though. I have not had to replace anything on it except an alternator. The gas mileage is great and it is really fun to drive. You have ground clearance so you can pretty much take it anywhere, not to mention you can take the top down when it is warm weather and just drive around. Its not a fast luxurious vehicle, but it sure is fun to drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Who Would Have Thought A 4 Cyl. 4x4 Would Be So Tough — I had the 4door, bought it from my mom after the hellacios experiance with pontiac, of every vehicle I ever owned this is my second favorite behind my first car(a 1969 chevy impala). I put almost 300k miles on it and it still ran good, my only regret is taking it to wal-mart for that last oil change, where they left the oil plug loose. I drove it for about a week after they last changed the oil, when the engine started knocking. to beat it all, the plug came out at walmart, the day they changed it, I think, that was the only place I had been where I could find a sigificant trail and puddle of oil, when I backtracked where I had been. My tracker at the small 4 cyl, but would go anywhere, It had a fair amt of clearance, and was small enough to make the jeep boys jealous when 4wheeling in tight spots. These cars were a great colaboratio between chevy, toyota, and suzuki.

Pros

Perfect in winters.

Cons

Slow and blows in the wind a bit.

It's A Great Car To Learn How To Drive A Stickshift And Amazing In The Winter. — This thing is very slow but I love the manual transmission. The engine took a beating and it eventually started to crap out on me. The most amazing winter vehicle I've ever had (only 4x4 I've ever had). Dropping the top was awesome in the summer and bridge jumping has never been so fun! Good car to beat up on :)
