Review

I love my Probe. I have my car for over a year and a half and have had few problems with it. Until recently, the only repairs I have had were for the air conditioner and air bag light. Other than that, my car has ran pretty good. Like I said, I love my car!


Favorite Features

The best features on my car is the interior. My car is sea foam green and I have yet to find another car that has green interior to match. I though that that was the coolest part. Also, the seats are extremely comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

I wish that the car would have easier access to parts under the hood. It took many people just to get to my fuel filter and cost a lot of money that could have been saved if it wasn't buried under the motor.

Review

I have not misused the car and I have performed all of the scheduled maintenance on the car. At 75,263 miles reverse disappeared. Needless to say a I need a new transmission. The cost of the work out weighs the value of the car. $900.00 for one out of a junk yard, not rebuilt and about 1000 in labor. I contacting Ford regarding the problem and informed them about the widspread transmission problems with the Probe. They are in denial about this issue and have informed me that their is currently no program in place to help me. This model car is a money pit, avoid it!


Favorite Features

Comfort and Styling


Suggested Improvements

Recall the car and correct the transmission problems.
