Good car for the dollar. 2.5L V6 humps with the 5-speed. Just wish the KLZE engine was available in the U.S. Extreme acceleration for a 164HP engine. The 5-speed is a must, FUN FUN FUN! Tires are expensive. Both CV joints pooped on me. Interior rattles like a snake, but all of them do. Exhaust is tuned nicely. Looks aren't bad, very customizable car. Car doesn't get much glory considering it's a domestic, Ford. Surprises many! Sits low to the ground, not snow-friendly. If the engine goes, KLZE's can be imported from Canada or Asia. The KLZE engine is directly swappable and pushes 200HP. Can you imagine?
Acceleration. Highway look out, passing is fun, 3rd gear will kill you. Low stance, and AMAZING handling. Customizable, if desired. Sounds good, engine is strong tuned. Dual overhead cam lets it rip. Looks aren't bad, small, compact keeps it very mobile!
INTERIOR RATTLES, that is the worst feature. Expensive repairs. Attracts police! 300ZX style headlights would have been sweet. Tires aren't cheap. Timing belt is impossible to get at if needs attention, hope it holds out! Why no turbo option like in the 89- 92 years, would have been nice.
I have the GT model. I like the power but you would expect a V6 not work to hard, as it does in the probe. For a '94 It is in really good shape. The struts that support the hatch needed replacement. The O2 sensor went bad. The brakes all around were replaced before I took the car. The ride is harsh, but I had 17s put on the car. The car is really bad in snow. But it eats up twisty roads with no problem. Overall with some aftermarket product this car can standout. My old turbo GT was much more fun and downright quick compared to this model.
Styling, brakes, gas mpg.
Ford does not make the car anymore, but a free flowing muffler, gear ratios.
I bought my 1994 Probe in 1997. It had
32,000 miles on it but looked brand
new. I have been very happy with gas
milage and still get 25.8 MPG IN City!
Other than basic maintenance I have not
had to do much mechanically to my
Probe. The only disappointment I have
had is the fading of the paint and the
breaking down of the plastic parts used
in some parts of the car. A mechanic
explained to me that the problem I
sometimes have in
cold weather when my door won't unlock
by the key is due to the breakdown of
the hard plastic used. The
same "plastic' is used in the seats for
the lumbar positioning, etc. My driver
seat is forever in the position I need
The body style is my favorite thing.
Also, it is fun to drive!
Start making them again using metal and
not plastic parts. Use better paint for
