Re: Looking at Geo Trackers, general questions, mileage etc...

about the clutch cable, i know what you are talking about. I broke one right after i bought it 6 years ago, then i have replaced it about every year since then. Each time i changed brand. I did find though that the first mount that holds the cable in the engine compartment is too high for aftermarkets, it kind of binds them up, Try to drop that mount down. trust me it makes a world of difference.

Re: Looking at Geo Trackers, general questions, mileage etc...

Ok now what i really wanted to say. You got a steel. that tracker looks great, and i would love a tracker with so few miles on it, and for only 2k. WOW. I spent 4 on mine 6 years ago, it is a 94, but the good news for all you tracker owners. I have 219000 miles on it. Yes you read that right, I have nearly a quarter of a million miles on it, and it just got off a 1900 mile move, and a 1200 mile evacuation from rita.

That shock, that is exacly how mine looks, looked like that since I bought, not any problems from it.

Have fun with it, and it will love the snow.

TTFN
