1996 Ford Probe GT 2dr Hatchback

Review

I bought this car with 20K, now have 75K on it. Love driving it, but have had numerous problems: In the first year, the CD player, and the hydraulics for the hatchback/trunk door went out. The radiator had to be replaced. Seatbelt buckles for both front seats had to be replaced. The EEC relay board and a battery cable cover just got replaced today ($350 plus towing). Without the EEC thing, the car won't even start. I'm postponing $1500 worth of emissions parts (oxygen sensors, etc.) Cover panels around passenger feet keep falling off. Parts are VERY EXPENSIVE + HARD TO FIND! Now just want to get running and sell it, alas!

Favorite Features

Exterior body. Interior color (tan). The sunroof.

Suggested Improvements

Since Ford no longer makes Probes, what's to improve? I'd like to see Ford truly make QUALITY their JOB #1
