Pros: "Great GPM, Dependable,Handles great"

"Had this GEO for 5 plus year, got it for my son in college so he used it and now I have it. The Geo is a blast to drive handles very nice and easy on the gas mpg. In the winter is seams very light but with the 4x4 you can go almost anyplace, not like the big trucks. This one has over 280000 miles now and every thing still seam to work great (knock on wood) Yes it is starting to rust (Wisconsin salt) bad but it still runs like a watch. I do think the timing belt was changed before I got it (paper work in glove box) but I have not had to do a thing to it but a muffler"

"This car was 5 years old when I bought it. I have had absolutely no problems with it and it is 2016! I drive it on long distances often. Still has all the original parts. The best purchase made. This car owes me nothing!"

1992 Geo Tracker. Aftermarket hard top and tires. Else OEM original

"My mother bought her tracker brand new in 92. It was the bottom model... no stereo. no air conditioning. Not even a 4X4. This little thing is still running like a champ (23 years later)! The only concern I have now, is that its value is SO low that i dont want to put money into it, but its getting rare and is unique and gets great gas mileage (30-32 mpg city) Ive driven it off road and it never gets stuck because its so light! I can push it outta sticky spots by myself and it handles great in snow and Ice! I want to keep this thing forever but the KBB value is so low!"

"I bought this used tracker as a project car with 119,000 miles. I had every intention to rebuild engine and transmission for daily reliability. After 6 months the transformation was complete and later added power windows and door locks with premium sound system. This 11 gallon tank puts out 23/28 mpg and can fill up with 20/30 bucks. After my rebuild and upgrades, I'm happy with performance& power this little ole jeep puts out."

"not a problem with my tracker. good on gas. fun little car to drive. have been away for 2 years and registration has not been paid for the 2 years. only reason having to get rid of my tracker is that I can not afford to pay the expired registration of 2 years."

"There is beginning to be less and less of these Suzuki trucks around and they are starting to go up in price, Where I live nice clean one's with no rust are going for five or six grand now. The more that go to the junk yard the higher the prices will get. If you can find a nice clean convertible 4x4 with a manual shift and no rust you should hang on to it for a few years. They will be worth ten grand most likely."
