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: love the gas milage
Cons: does not brake right
Advice: check everything and ask questions more than onceWe bought a new 2003 Tracker and later found out that this $21,000 car did not come with ABS brakes. In the time we have had this Tracker the brakes have locked and caused a skidd on 5 different occassions. In different weather and road conditions. We contacted GM about this and they(GM)tell us it's our falt. We ask about having the ABS brakes add on but it can not be done. So we ask about a buy back and they tell us nothing is wrong with this Tracker. Then we ask for help on a trade-in because of the amount owed verses value, and they laughed.
Pros: The power mode
Cons: 4 wheel drive is hard to engage when the vehicle is moving faster than 25 mph.
Advice: If you want a good small SUV with great handling you cant go wrong with a tracker.Its very agile and powerful for such a small SUV. Handling is very tight and responsive. The 24 valve 2.5 litre V6 can really roar when you want it to. I love the agressive styling of the whole vehicle and control layout.
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.
Pros: convertible top
Cons: Hot, insufficient AC, lousy ride,
Advice: Are you out of your mind????We rented this car for vacation. We drove 50 miles out of the way to trade it in for something else. (ANYTHING else!)
Pros: It drove like it would be great in town
Cons: Not enough pep.
Advice: It's seems to be put together as cheaply as possible.I had trouble fastening the seat belt. The latch sounded cheap, not solid. I did not like the feel of the shift. It felt like metal hitting metal. The overall quality seemed less than other vehicles I have tested. I found the turn signal inconvenient to locate. The steering wheel hides the switch on the dash for cruise control. I also found the wipers/cruise lever inconvenient to operate.
