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
