1990 Ford Probe GL 2dr Hatchback


Review

Hello, I have a 1990 Ford Probe GL. While it may not be the fastest car out there it has been very dependable despite having 226,000 miles on it. The engine has never been rebuilt and runs strong! I wish it had more power under the hood but it runs well and is in excellent condition. I have seen only two other Probes on the road like mine and they were rough! so I feel it is a rather unique car and I love the "TNG" styling. (Trek talk) :)


Worst Features

"More power!"

Review

I am the 3rd owner of this car. When I got it, it had 125,000 miles, now it has 153,437 miles. I just recently gave it a tune up. it was getting a little sluggish. Now it's running great again. I went on a 165 mile one way trip and only used 1/4 tank of gas! the AC has never been worked on, to my knowledge anyway, and it is just now starting to take longer to get cold and it's 2008 the car is almost 20 years old. It is fun to drive and if I could make it into a sedan that would be great. I plan on keeping this car until it dies, and can not be fixed. I'm a big guy, and it fits me well.


Best Features

The steering console, pop up head lights, handling, gas mileage, reliability and I don't like Ford! Perfect for pizza delivery, and great for a daily commuter.


Worst Features

Perhaps they should have made a sedan. Expensive to replace parts. Wish they still made the Probe.

Review

I call it my energizer bunny. Except
for NY state rust it is doing very well.

When bought a lot of money had to be
put into it because of the winters and
other non care of it but since then it
has done wonders for me.

I do not have a lot of money and I keep
this car going on a shoestring budget.

I would get another one.


Best Features

looks.


Worst Features

Do pop up headlights and hatch back leaks. I suggest more rust proofing.
