1996 Ford Probe SE 2dr Hatchback


I bought my SE 2 years ago and it has been burning oil ever since. Fortunately by adding about a quart a week I've been able to keep it running. It is very very fun to drive. I work at a Nissan dealer so I've gotten to drive a 350Z, and I think my Probe handles better. It does have an upgraded suspension and has been lowered by 2 inches, so that helps. I have also always put high performance all season tires on it. I'm not given enough letters to explain all the things I've had to, or that I need to do. I think it'll be cheaper to get a V6 and transmission rather than trying to replace everything under the hood that's going bad. Overall it's a great car if you are prepared to fix it all the time.

Best Features

Handling, appearance (interior and exterior) My interior has been custom painted to match the car. It also has a spoiler that really makes the car look that much sportier. Aftermarket exhaust also helps. It is pretty quick off the line, through 1st and 2nd at least. Fun to drive.
