Pretty close to picking up a 2002 ZR-2 4wd Chevy Tracker for use as a towed vehicle, four wheels down, behind a motor home. Any opinions or hint from folks with a Tracker?

We towed one all over the country for several years. Straight shift 4WD 4 Dr. Shift the transfer case to neutral, front hubs unlocked, tranny in 5th and switch to first notch. Great little towed. Wife cannot use left leg and arm due to MS. Needed automatic so we ended up with an Element. Would buy another Tracker in a heartbeat.

We towed a 98 4x4 5 speed for a couple years. Worked fine. I followed the manual except for the 55 miles per hour part.

We tow a 2002 Suzuki Grand Vitara, same vehicle as Chevy Tracker except for name tag. Ours is an automatic 4X4. All you have to do is put the transfer case in neutral and the ignition key in the first positin so the steering isn't locked an away you go. Ours has automatic hubs on the front, and I too just ignore the 55 mph tow speed. Over 75K miles on it now with another 20 or so behind the motorhome, and no problems. Great tow car. The towed mileage does not accumulate on the odemeter ither.

Doc, get your wife another Tracker with automaticf and four wheel drive. http://irv2.infopop.cc/groupee_commo...icon_smile.gif

Great toads - we had a 2000 4 cylinder and a 2003 ZR2, both automatic 4WD. Towed them a total of 60k miles without a problem. Like Dieselclacker, we ignored the 55 mph limit but always ran the engine at about 200 miles to recirculate fluids.

Thanks for the in put, which we very much appreciate.

We now own a Tracker.

Rockhouse: I tow a 94 4X4/5 speed Tracker. Here's a small trick I learned with mine and I've seen others be able to do the same thing.

Insert key, turn on, (no need to start engine) turn key back to off, do not remove, see if steering wheel is and remains un-lock.

That's how I tow mine and have never had any problems with the Tracker's steering or tires.
