1992 Ford Probe LX 2dr Hatchback


Review

my grandma owned this car before me and she
gave it to me for my 16th birthday. i've had it for
over 2 years now and it has been a pretty good car i
guess. i did have to replace the muffler and i've
had to replace the brake pads twice. i also wish it
was a v6 because it takes a lot to speed it up
quickly like on the highway, and it jumps when it
changes speeds. also, my right front blinker has
gone out randomly various times and that is very
annoying because i know it isnt the bulb, its
something in the wiring. the sound system is also
of pretty bad quality. other than that, i havent
had many problems with it and it's pretty reliable.
it's a nice little sporty car to have


Best Features

flip-up lights, outer style, i love the turquoise- green color, gets pretty good mileage, big trunk


Worst Features

i wish it had better brakes, sound system, and better paint quality

1992 Ford Probe GL 2dr Hatchback


Review

I purchased my 92 Probe with 92,000
miles on it from my grandfather in the
spring of 2002, and so far the car
has been a dream. I currently have
138,000 on it, and it still starts right
up (the fact that it has a Mazda
powerplant probably makes a
difference) no matter the weather or
conditions. The clear coat is peeling
from sitting in the sun for so long, but
who cares when the engine is all that
makes a difference. Aside from a
little exhaust work that needed done
after I first bought it and I had to
replace the clutch slave cylinder last
fall, I have no complaints about the
car.


Best Features

Well-made Mazda engine


Worst Features

Make the speakers easier to get to, put in a center console

1992 Ford Probe GL 2dr Hatchback


Review

After only owning my 92 Probe for one
year, I've had to fix or replace front
brakes, tie rods, struts, strut plates,
air conditioning fan, $2 headlight
relay (after $100 of diagnostics), e-
brake cable, CV axles, not to mention a
transmission flush. Ford no longer
makes any Probe parts, the Probe was
shelved around 96, so all parts either
have to be special ordered or from a
junkyard. This was a problem because
when my trailer arm was snapped
(friends fault), I had to find my own
replacement, and the best one I could
find threw me out of alignment. AVOID
THIS CAR! UNRELIABLE! I also suggest
avoiding older models, as they are
plagued with the same problems.


Best Features

Gas milage, exterior, acceleration


Worst Features

Buy something else.

Review

Well, I got my car in good condition,
transmission died 5 months later.
Parts for these cars are MIA- you
can't find them anywhere but
junkyards pretty much, so it took 3
months to be fixed. Constant
problems.


Best Features

Its a great looking car, you can fix it up to be really nice. Very sporty


Worst Features

Don't get one unless you're good with cars and know how to fix them yourself. They aren't reliable and are a waste of money if you can't constantly fix them up
