1991 Ford Probe GL 2dr Hatchback


2.2l auto-trans. I bought the car in 1994 w/ 47k miles. I preformed full tune-ups on the car every 12k miles and changed the oil every 3k miles, timing belt and everything else. Despite this, The Probe was a nightmare. I had to replace both front axles twice, the transmission went out at 75k, the a/c went-out at 85k. Every mechanic said it was an $800 or more fix. When the car hit 110k the engine became tired and the mileage went down to 22mpg on the highway. Finally, the clearcoat started to fade and chip. I traded it in for a Dodge in 2001.

Best Features

It looked pretty sharp and preformed well for an I-4cyl. It turned heads when I first bought it.

Worst Features

A different tranny. I've talked to other people who have owned The Ford Probe GL and they all had problems with the tranny.
