1990 Ford Probe LX 2dr Hatchback


Review

After reading others' experiences I
went ahead and bought my 90 with 147K
on it, and have added another 9K.
Replaced plugs, wires, dist cap/rotor,
front brakes (cheap!). Timing belt
blew, but I should have changed it; no
valve damage. Amazingly reliable and
inexpensive; previous owner and I both
use Mobil 1 oil. Best car buy I'ceever
made.


Best Features

Cruise control and A/C work great; fuel economy is unreal; can actuallt take a nap with folddown rear seats!


Worst Features

Nothing. I expected the car to be slow, and it is, but with headlamps down and cruise control set at 55 MPH, I can get 40 MPG.

Review

I bought this car in 1992 from a
dealership, figuring I'd drive it a
year or two and then update.... but I
loved it from Day One... now I'm at
160,000 and still going strong!! I
love this car, and hope it makes it
another 40,000! I've only ever done
routine fixes.... new starter, new
brakes, etc.


Best Features

Great Acelleration, longevity, and reliability!


Worst Features

Electrical system has weird moments.... but never anything big.

Review

In being my first car I don't have much
to compare it too since I still have
it, but he sure is a fast little guy. I
love flying around in downtown Lansing,
taking corners fast enough to glue my
friends to the windows.


Best Features

electric mirrors, the fact that I can fit my mountain bike in it all the way and close the hatchback easily, and it's wonderful acceleration.


Worst Features

When I had my backseat drivers side window smashed in by some idiot the cost to replace it was $5000! Thank God for salvage yards!

junked the Focus

electrical system had some flaws... like in every Ford car I have ever owned!
