Love this car! Even though the idle
control has been bad for a year, I
drive it everywhere and love it. 169000
miles and still going. And easy to fix,
if you can find the parts. It does what
I need it to do and I can fit my golf
clubs in the trunk.
Milage, easy to fix, quick,
interior/exterior styling, handling.
Easier access to less expensive quality
parts. Better paint (faded).
I bought my '93 Probe new, and after
145,000 miles, I'm still enjoying it.
The 5 speed still has the original
clutch and I'm still getting 30 mpg! I
added 4 Pirelli's several years ago,
since the car had no traction when
accelerating in wet weather. What a
difference. Also added an Alpine CD
player and upgraded all 4 speakers -
sounds fantastic. You will not find
more bang for the buck. Just forget
about using the back seat for anything
except small packages.
Exterior styling and the Maxda engine-
Improve the cheesy plastic interior,
eliminate the rattles. But since they
stopped making Probes, I guess it's
not gonna happen.
This car is really, really nice. The
interior design looks 5-6 years
younger than what it actually is. I've
always been happy driving the car
because it looks like new. However, my
Probe has had many problems: intake
gasket, clutch, driving axle, bushings
and schock absorbers, water pump.
That's in just 14 months. $$$.
The interior design.
Build parts to last 125000 miles and
not only 75000.
i just bought this car and it is the
most reliable car i have ever owned.
It has three hundred and sixty five
thousand miles on the base engine
with only minor maintenence done to
it. It still runs great and i drive it every
day. It has never missed a start in the
morning even when it is ten below.
its a great car and i will probably
keep this the rest of my life.
I love the interior design on this car,
the seat patterns are awesome and
the overall look really accents its
I would lose the pop up headlights
and back the back seat up a few
