JC's '95 Probe
By J Coyne on
1995 Ford Probe SE 2dr Hatchback
I bought this car used in '97 with 28,000 miles and it's been a really solid vehicle. I had no major repairs to make until 170,000 miles, when the automatic transmission went out. At around $2000 to repair, this is the last of my Probe. But it's been the most reliable car I have ever owned.
The body style and handling of this car are its best features.
I've heard many reports of automatic transmissions failing at 70,000 miles. I would never buy a used Probe with an automatic transmission. Stick with a manual - more fun anyway.
