The tail light has burned out once!

General Comments:

I have 55,000 miles and I haven't even had a problem yet. I know several other people that have these things and they all love them. I have heard the engine will last forever.

The car seems to have some sort of shake or something when you are stopped at red lights. It's blown more than average headlights and tail lights. Nothing serious yet.

General Comments:

I love the car, it only has 2 bad things about it in my opinion. First off it can be broken into with just a razor, I know for a fact because mine has been broken into several times. Second it's very underpowered - it's hard to keep up with traffic with the a/c on. I do however love the oversized radio in it because it has options you don't see with many cassette players. The convertible top is great fun too. It's an alright car just needs more power.

Passenger door handle broke.

General Comments:

It seems never to want to go into reverse, and it's been broken into twice already. I just leave the doors unlocked cause what's the point of locking them. It's a 5 speed..

As far as the reverse thing goes, if you're parking, turn the engine off first then put in reverse, the gears and cogs or whatever you call them have to have time to line up or they will scrape and be difficult... try it, I did and it works!

I have a 92 Tracker with the same motor and 5 speed, & I had the same problem. I fixed the problem by adjusting the clutch pedal cable through trial & error testing until the transmission would go into reverse easily.

I own a 94 tracker and have the same reverse problem. I just put it into neutral and let out the clutch and then press the clutch in and put it into gear. Works every time. It also has a problem going into 1st sometimes when stoping at a light. I use the same steps to get it into gear.

I am not real familiar with the trackers transmission gut I know that if it uses synchros they sometimes will stop you from shifting into 1st or reverse while moving. And in the case of reverse you may need to shake the gear shift in neutral before going into reverse. kind of a safe guard against grinding your gears too hard.

Agreed. Won't shift ---> clutch out, back in, into gear!
