This car was my first...for the most
part its been a decent car. But the
paint is way too soft, the quality of
the interior sux, and the exhaust has
always got something up its a**
because it falls apart everywhere. If
its reliability we're talking about,
then this car would be ranked pretty
damn high in my books. Ive replaced
the distributer 2x now and the problem
seems to have finally faded. Ever since
this issue and a faulty fuel pump, the
car has been dependable. But I do
agree with about every other probe
owner about the outrageous prices to
Reliable, good looking, runs
forever...and then some.
Better interior build quality, a little
more power, harder paint.
For being 11 years old, the body has
stayed in great shape. However, I have
replaced just about everything on this
car and half of it twice over within
122,00 miles. The engine is aluminum
block engine which overheats easily and
is extremly expensive to replace. This
car has cost me a fortune. But has
never left me stranded!
Smooth body design will keep it in
style for years. The interior is very
durable. Maneuvers quickly.
The engine is very sluggish and shifts
gears very hard. The mechanical parts
on this car don't last long and are way
I loved this car with all it's power.
Had problems at the get go and had the
tranny replaced under warranty at
40000. Muffler is expensive and have
replaced 3 times in 10 years. Had power
brakes disconnected 3 years ago when
they malfuntioned on the highway and
dealship couldn't figure out the
problem. Catalytic is now gone and the
powersteering has malfunctioned for the
5th time and it's off to the scrapeheap
for this puppy. Got stolen once,
attempted once more and broken into 2
more times in 4 years (I do not live in
a bad area, either!)
Power. This car floated like my 'vette.
Love the comfort and the beautiful
interior. Trunkspace is incredible.
Nice, fat tires. Hugged corners like a
Could have improved the powersteering,
ABS, incredibly expensive muffler
system. Cheap stereo and speakers could
have been much better for what this car
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 strait up awsome. the only
proble i've noticed is it needs a
little more low end torqe. But I've put
custom exhaust, intake, and fuel system
so my GT is absolutly untouchable on
the street I've got 150,000 miles, and
the cars got at least 150K togo. I
would recommend the Ford Probe GT to
anyone (GREAT CAR).
Exterior design, sound, and ergonamics
it has some sort of low quality
interior parts, no big deal, needs a
little more torqe.
