do a search for chevy tracker hardtop and you will find results. i just recently replaced my soft with a new soft top . i thought about getting a hard top but i couldnt justify the costs for what my tracker is worth. I bought a complete new top front and rear for under $400. i think the hard top was over $1000. If my a/c worked on my 1999 tracker i might have gotten the hard top but i dont wanna sink too much money in this thing as i dont plan on keeping it much longer. age is starting to show on it.

Thanks for your reply, arkainzeye. I've conducted searches and found hardtop sources. What I'm needing now is for someone to hopefully give me some information about quality. For example, two of the brands I've found are Protop and Bestop, but I don't know if one is better than the other or not. If anyone has any firsthand experience I'd appreciate your input.

You may want to nose around some of the Wrangler boards - I see Bestop posts now and then over there.

A better suggestion is to use the Advanced Search tool on the left (doing a text search) - you should get ~200 hits that way. I didn't try looking for the other brand.

What do you think it the best engine tranny combination for the Tracker or Suzuki? My personal preference would be the 5 speed 2.0 4cyl 99+. How does it compare to the 1.6, 1.8 or 2.5 6cyl?

from what i remember the 5 speeds were bad news for the 99 models! something about grinding gears. when i bought my 99 i made sure not to get a 5 speed and i remembered reading on here about manual transmission issues. my tracker has the 2.0 engine with the optional 4 Speed automatic. you can turn the overdrive on and off. the overdrive makes a real difference in Rpm;s at highway speeds. ive driven a 4 door tracker with the 4 speed auto & 2.5l V-6. once you got the v-6 up in rpm's it had a nice little kick to it as far as power. now the 1999 1.6 litre, there is a 30 Hp difference between the 1.6 and 2.0litre. 1.6-97HP 2.0-127hp 2.5-155Hp

I had the complete Clutch replaced in my 1999 Tracker. And still have the same noise. Push the Clutch in, the noise stops. Minus the noise, the car drives and shifts great. Does anyone know what this problem is?

I have a 2002 Tracker with about 160,000 km on it and have no heat. I've had the thermostat replaced and the system cleaned and flushed. At this point the mechanic says that the next step is to replace the heater core but that's a $500 Cnd part and 7 hours labour!! Unfortunately it's no longer on warranty but as it's not even 5 years old I don't understand why this is happening. Any hints/ideas/suggestions? Anyone else have a similar problem?
