Nice car for its time; good first car

Vehicle1993 Ford Probe 2dr Hatchback
ReviewBought as a winter car with ~132,500 miles. Black on black, loaded and auto. Cousin of the Mazda MX-6, prefer styling on Probe, notably the GT version. Wide 16x7 5-spoke wheels and body accents (spoiler, side skirts, door caps, front bumper) make this a nice looking car. Reasonable power from V6 but weak in the low end. Nice interior layout. Great handling characteristics (weakened by the cheap tires). Stiff suspension. Steering response a little light. Common problems oil leaks which I have (vc gaskets, oil pressure sensor). Automatic is terrible. Hunts for shifts. Requires cooler for longevity. Back seat for looks only. Deep trunk but high lift gate.
Best FeaturesHandling, styling, 4-wheel disc brakes, bucket seats.
Worst FeaturesAutomatic transmission performance/reliability, V6 mediocre fuel economy, cheap construction on interior door panels ('93), thin paint.
