Good dependable vehicle
Cons: gas mileageGood vehicle
Advice: Do Not Purchase this AutomobileThis is the most unsafe automobile I've ever owned. I am terribly dissappointed in the overall saftey and guality of the Tracker. It will absolutely cause you to loose control while driving in high wind conditions. I have been physically sore trying to keep the Tracker on the Highway in a single lane while driving on windy days. The gas mileage is not what the manufactures claim it will get even while driving on the Interstate non-stop. Highly, unsatisfied customer. Would not recommend to anyone.
Pros: great speakers
Cons: there needs to be more leg room in the back
Advice: buy oneThe Trackers are great other then when it is very windy. You can definately feel the wind moving your car from side to side.
Cons: Safety is questionable
Advice: I traded it after only one year. Be cautious and know what your getting into.I bought the 4 cylinder thinking I would get good gas mileage! I got 20 mpg, my new Monte Carlo gets 23 and has a 6 cylinder with power to spare! We get alot of wind in Missouri and this car doesn't handle wind well. I bought the bigger tires hoping it would help with the slipping in rain however even with sand bags in it all year long it still slipped. I really think the Tracker is too light weight and the 4 cylinder engine is too small to carry the weight. I had cruise control but couldn't use it unless the road was flat as it couldn't pull hills with it on. I'd recommend that you think seriously before buying this car.
Pros: the radio
Cons: cheap materials
Advice: unless you have alot of time to spend at the garage, buy a Ford!personaly I've had more problems out of the Tracker then it's worth. I prefer my used Ford explorer to the Tracker!
Pros: Shift on the fly and the power.
Cons: Cargo space could be a little larger.
Advice: Buy it, you'll love it!I wanted an SUV but most were to large for me. The Tracker was the perfect size. It's very comfortable to drive and I feel safe driving it. It is a dependable automobile.
Pros: On the fly 4wheel drive
Cons: Storage in rear
Advice: If you looking for an inexpensive, easy to maintain vehicle this ones for youThe 2004 Trackers cab needs to be a little wider for people with long Legs. But everything else in this vehicle are great.
