The Tracker has been an OK vehicle to date. It's ride is rather stiff, and the power of the V6 is underwhelming. It takes a lot of pedal to pass on a highway, and the vehicle seems to take forever to shift down. Crosswinds buffet the hell out of me on the highway, and while the 4x4 is nice, I worry what will happen if a good stiff cross wind hits me on an open and icy road.
Gas mileage is actually mediocre. I get about 500km per 60L tank, with most of my driving being highway.
The only real issue I have had is with the timing tensioner. The quote is $1500-2000 CAD to get this done. I noticed a strange ticking noise and the independent mechanic confirmed the tensioner. Parts are problematic it appears (at least for my mechanic), and the tensioner issue is a known problem.
I smoked a deer doing 100km/h, and the vehicle took it well (front left). The cost for body work was $4500 though.
I would not recommend this vehicle if you plan on driving a lot of highway. All city.. OK. Highway? Not for my wife or daughter.
On the upshot, the Trackers are relatively cheap, and I have had no other major issues less those given above.
