1992 Geo Tracker 1.6 from North America
Great Car! Long time owner with a few helpful tips
My tracker has had the kinds of things go wrong that go wrong with any car as it ages.
Clutch replaced at 120000.
Radiator at 115000.
Clutch cable at 100000.
Front disk pads have been replaced twice not sure about mileage maybe 60000 miles each time.
Timing belt replaced as owners manual recommended at 100000. Looked fine to me.
I have had the car for over ten years. Recently the cars computer went out and my wife wanted me to trade it. Told her No. This is by far the best car I have ever owned and I hope I can keep it going forever!
Here are a few tips that might be helpful for those who want to keep their high mileage Tracker:
Computers are available at the junk yard and through Ebay. Mine was $60 at the junk yard. Bought 9/16/2006. Easy to install. Two screws.
If your headlights seem to go out often look for water in the unit below the halogen. I drilled a 1/8" hole in the unit for drainage and have not lost a bulb since.
My top is original equipment and still looks great. No leaks and the threads are not dry rotted. The car has been parked outside for 14 years. I spray the same kind of protectorant I use on the dash board on the top after I wash the car. (Every month or two) Spray after the top is dry and rub with a dry cloth. Brings back the original color. Stick with the name brand protectorants.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a 1992 Geo Tracker too and I was worried that it was starting to cost me to much. I replaced the clutch cable about 10,000 miles ago and then my whole clutch went. I paid over 500 dollars to fix it. I'm glad you aren't having further problems. I hope that my Tracker lasts as longs as yours.

I have got a 1993 Geo Tracker with 150K on it. It's in nice shape, but I have put over $3,000 into it. Every electrical part you can think of. On top of that, 2 new distributors. It runs a few miles and quits every time you turn off the key. It just quits, no warning, even after I've put new parts in it. It's getting gas etc. Computers can't even figure it out. Just putting it out there for all you saps like me that still can't get it running. Open for help?
