1994 Geo Tracker LSi 4 cylinder from North America
A great 4X4 for the money!
I have had no problems whatsoever, I change the oil every 3000 miles with Pennzoil, and I change the spark plugs and wires annually.
The soft top does need replaced, however the current one doesn't leak or anything, it just starting to look worn and the windows are scratched.
I put large tires on my tracker and it handles a lot better, they are Goodyear Wrangler 225/75/15. I have noticed, since day one, that hydroplaning is a common problem, due to the short wheelbase I believe.
I have had tremendous success with the four wheel drive, it has gone in snow where Jeeps can't!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hydroplaning has nothing to do with the wheelbase, but is dependent on tire size and tread design and to some degree the weight of the vehicle with all other factors, ie: water depth, road gradient, road surface, etc... being equal. I have a 1995 Geo Tracker that has never hydroplaned on me. I run 31X10.50R 15 Goodyear mud terrain radials.
