All of the speakers have fallen out of the car and are not working.
The windows are misaligned and it feels like the crank handles will break off in my hand.
The driver's door is sagging badly, making it difficult to open and close. The latch also sticks whenever it wants to, so the door will not close sometimes.
The paint has cracks in it all over the place and rust is showing up everywhere.
All of the little zippers and things in the top are worn out.
The windshield has a big, nasty crack in it.
The engine pops and sputters when you hit the gas hard. This problem was so bad at one point that it became dangerous to be in traffic because the car would NOT accelerate.
The A/C does not work anymore and was lousy at best when it did work.
There is a lot of shuddering at around 65 MPH, have heard of this with other Trackers/Sidekicks.
The rear trim panels have fallen off and it looks as though they were put on with tape, because that's what is on the backs of the panels.
The interior is always musty and damp. Once, after a couple of days of rain, I opened the passenger door and there were two inches of standing water in the floorboard. The roof has never leaked on me, so I don't know where all the water came from.
The little beast starts up every time, but it is a most unpleasant vehicle to drive.
The suspension doesn't seem to soak up any bumps whatsoever. Everything rattles violently when you hit a bump, including your brain!
There are no creature comforts at all. The seats are very poorly shaped. I always wind up hunched over no matter how I adjust the seat!
It doesn't seem to live up to its original purpose as an economy vehicle because it always needs repairs and they are more expensive than people think. I have heard that the cost to fix the sagging door thing is like $2,000, more than the car is worth.
At least this car has alloy wheels and pinstripes to hide some of the ugly spots.
I think that the only way to own one of these cars is to buy it new and keep it in a climate-controlled garage. I imagine that it was a nifty vehicle when it was new, but now it's just...old. And it doesn't even have 100,000 miles on it. I'm just glad it's not mine, it belongs to an acquaintance.
