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
First off, FYI, Probes share the same
chassis and driveline as a Mazda MX-6,
but Probes resale values are much
less. The V6 is so smooth, way more
refined than any other V6 I've driven.
The gearbox is good and reliable. I
have about 148,000 miles on the
original clutch. This car handles
great also. On 93-95 models the
ignitor and coil seem to fail quite
often. I installed an MSD system and
it's been reliable ever since. I have
power everthing on mine and everything
still works fine. The exterior has the
bad Ford red paint which fades badly.
If they still made the Probe, I would
