Best Ford Small Passenger Ever Built

Review242,000 mi. and this 3.0L 6 cyl. engine still has some punch left. I just bought a used '97 Probe GTS to replace my '90 because this truely is the best car Ford ever built. Why would any car company discontiue such a gem? I guess people would rather pay more money for Hondas or Toyotas (4 cyl... Puhlease!) that don't even come close to the speed or handling of the 2nd gen Probe V6.
Best FeaturesDigital Dash/Trip Computer (great toy for a man/child). Heater will keep you warm in coldest of nights with the windows wide open. Steering/suspension handles mountain driving like a champ.
Worst FeaturesEverything but the engine and transmission could have been more durable to keep maintainence cost down. the only problem I had with the engine was the harmonic balance broke at around 200k mi. the car lost a little power, but not much after the timing belt was replaced.
