It's been good for the 2 years that I've had it
With some TLC it could go for several more years. Needs a starter and other mechanical work, I want to say exhaust work but I'm not a mechanic I was going to pay someone after the body work was done.
Best vehical I ever owned.
I've had my little 1998 Chevy Tracker since it was brand new on the lot. It's good on gas and has never left me stranded. Other than the standard filter, belt and fluid changes, its never needed any major or expensive repairs. Even when it was hit from behind from a careless cell phone driver! It doesn't have a lot of speed, pickup or interior room... but you can haul groceries, people and get back and forth to work without worrying about being left on the roadside. I worry more about my tires than my engine. Easy to park, too. Tough and well-made little vehicle, still going strong, and I plan to keep my Tracker for as long as it lets me.
Overall, I loved this car. Over 200,0000 miles before the transmission went out. Only minor tune ups on it ever before the transmission. good on gas mileage. The only complaint is that it is a little tight in the car. It makes a lot of noise on the intersate. Other than that it has been a good car. I would buy another one.
