1996 Ford Probe SE 2dr Hatchback

Review

I have driven the life out of my car (10500/6 years), and it has been fairly good to me. It looks faster than it is, but it will give you its best, however loudly. Is extremely fun to drive; is best with a manual transmission, however. Looks great, especially with tinted windows. Mix of Mazda/Ford parts is a pain; modifications also difficult due to cramped engine space. Yet has great fuel efficiency (in non-extreme conditions).

Favorite Features

Excellent handling. Really holds a curve. Great gas mileage (except when the A/C is in use). Looks great. Pop- up headlights are rare and fun. Big trunk (lots of room for stereo improvements!) and good acoustics. Dash and controls are attractive and easy to read at a glance.

Suggested Improvements

Radiator,timing belt,CV joints,fuel pump,alternator,catalytic converter have gone out. Paint scratches easily. Engine sounds like enraged lawnmower when ATX downshifts. No side-impact beams. Backseat not situable for two people; one (small) person is about it.
