242,000 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.
Digital 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.
Everything 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.
