1995 Ford Probe SE 2dr Hatchback


Bought her used, had her for 2.5 years now. I really love driving her, and up till now, i have had few problems; rotors, battery, stuff like that at about $100 a pop, and not too frequent. But last month, I had to replace the whole transmission at 87,000 mi - cost me $2100 to do it! Now, she's giving me trouble starting in the morning, and it could be the Idle Air Control (IAC is $600 to replace), or the Mass Air-flow Sensor (MAF is $800 to replace). I don't know which, and it could be neither, and something less expensive; but I am bracing myself for the worst! I'm afraid as much as I like her, I could not recommend to others to buy this car.

Best Features

The drive is smooth and the engine is quiet. It's sleek and pretty; and I still get comments on it going into its 8th year. I just wish she wouldn't surprise me with wierd problems so much.

Worst Features

Can we try to build a model in which the most expensive things to fix aren't the first things to go?!
