I've have a good experience with my Probe. I've owned it 6-7 years with not major problems. The biggest problem was the water pump and timing belt at 130K. Other then that, I replaced the entire exhaust and havent had further problems. I am currently having a problem with the oil pan, but stuff happens. I've only been let down by it once in the snow-altenator and power steering belts broke. Only about 100 bucks and half my day. It actually does surprisingly well in the snow and it is a joy to drive in the summer.
Handleing. I love the way my car handles. Torque and HP are very nice, even with my automatic. The wider tires are really high for tires but they make a nice difference.
The exhaust leads right under the oil pan which seems to have burned the paint on the oil pan so now the oil pan is rusting. Sunroof is starting to rust and bubble. Interior has a cheap feel and look to it.
