1996 Ford Probe SE 2dr Hatchback

Review

This car is good if you're only looking for fuel efficiency & a large cargo area. This car is bad when it comes to repairing it. It is half Mazda and half Ford - you'll need both metric and standard tools to work on it yourself & the engine is really cramped & tightly packed - what a pain! After only 63000 miles and 6 years, my model has many rattles and many broken interior parts including problems with the door handles that have had extensive warranty work on them to no avail. The interior is just too cramped. I would not recommend this car to anyone but a teenager.

Favorite Features

The tight steering, comfortable seats, exterior body styling, good cornering, fuel efficiency, and GREAT TRUNK! THIS CAR CAN HAUL A LOT MORE THAN YOU WOULD EXPECT!

Suggested Improvements

The heater needs improvement. The plastic interior parts (esp. the cup holder & console) need work & it needs a bigger glove box. Ford needs to stop sharing parts w/ Mazda. The engine parts are more than a standard Ford part because they're mostly foreign Mazda parts.
