1994 Geo Tracker 2-door convertible 4x4 from North America


This is a great vehicle to own and you'll get your money's worth out of it


I haven't had any major problems yet.

My softtop is starting to wear out but that's to be expected after 6 years.

General Comments:

When I was car shopping I thought that this Mini-SUV would never suffice. What I was looking for had to be tough like a truck, 4x4 and reliable. Needless to say I bought it anyway and in the past year that I've owned it I have taken it through snowbanks, into cow fields, hauled livestock feed in it and driven all over the place. I am really surprised that it has taken all that and it still runs like the day I got it!

It definitely isn't the safest car on the market, I knew that from the beginning but as long as you know the limitaitons of this vehicle it's a great little truck.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I agree with your assessment completely. I bought a 94 Tracker 4X4 in 97. It had 39k miles on it. Now it has 102k miles on it and I have seen little change in performace other than my tendency to be a little easier on it because of its age.

Last year, my wife bought a Suzuki Sidekick 4 door 4X4. It has automatic and air conditioning. She loves it due its maneuverability and agility in traffic.

Living in Western Pa these little vehicles are superb in our application of them. They are faithful little trucks. The only drawback is lower power engines in both. Mine has a 1.6k engine. Hers has a 1.8k engine and automatic (which causes a power loss compared with a 5 speed). Even though, this is a very very minor problem which is offset by the amazing fuel economy, 32/26 MPG respectively. When we replace these vehicles they will be replaced by Suzuki/Tracker equivalents.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide my input.

I totally agree with the main review. The Geo Tracker is overall a very reliable and relatively hard working vehicle for it's size and power disadvantage. Yes they are unsafe, but I still say you have more between you and the outside world than in a Jeep.

One point I would like to make is that, at least in my 1993 Tracker LSi, it says right in front of your face on the sun visor that the Tracker is prone more so than some other vehicles to rolling. I must say if you cannot read the visor 1 foot in front of your face then call me before you hit the road next time so I can stay home.

Watch out for the inside's plastic pieces, they break easily



1. Vents on the dashboard have all broken.

2. Automatic gearshift has broken and fallen off.

3. Driver's side mirror just fell out and broke on the ground.

4. Plastic material on the door has bulged up.

5. Trim piece around the radio and A/C controls cracked.

Cooling/heat system fan switch has went out.

Transmission makes whistling noise for no reason.

General Comments:

This car has never left me stranded anywhere and it's always cranked when I've turned the key, but the fact is that the inside of these cars are very cheaply made. I think it's the whole Geo lineup from some of the reviews I've read on this site. Their drivetrain is one of the most dependable I've seen but the inside is another story.

I think that this car is one of the cutest and best running cars I have had yet! I have a 1991 and it's spiffy - I mean all it needs is a little TLC - it runs much smoother when you fix the exhaust - at least mine does.

However, when I drive in Palm Springs I get scared because the car is so lightweight.

I do wish that I could get another top for my Tracker so it will look nicer and be able to see through the side windows... but overall I have a definite bond with my little roller skate of a car!
