Never again will I buy a probe. In
just a year of owning this car, I've
had to replace both CV joints (one
more than once), replace the whole
radiator, replace the distribitor,
replaced the front brake pads a few
times, the rotors once, repair on the
head gaskets, and replace the timing
belt. Right now, the transmission is
almost completely gone and I have a
blown water hose. When it rains, it
pours with this vehicle. Price for
repair is outrageous. Thank goodness
they don't make this cars anymore!!
I bought the car with 12,000 miles on the odometer, and have been driving it for the last 11 years. The handling is tremendous; every freeway on ramp is a blast. The V6 winds out nicely, and the car still looks contemporary today. The seats are very comfortable. At 147,000 miles, it still has the original clutch, and the engine feels tight. Problem areas: the distributor quit at 50k miles; the rear brake calipers have been replaced a couple of times due to locking; the paint is fading despite regular wax jobs; the hatch has rattled since day 1; the valve cover gaskets leak; and the wind whistles around the passenger door seal.
I have a 93 SE and I love it. It didnt wanna go uphill on take off but if you get a new upgraded exaust or some type of small Horse Power adjustment it doesnt take away from the fuel economy and also gives you that little boost. Sound system stinks in this model. Change to a cd player and change to pioneer deck speakers. Also mine came with a stock subwoofer in the back built into the right panel. If you take that out and take the wires from the back of it then buy a subwoofer it will BUMP!!! I have 3 JL audio tens in there now and it rattles my trunk! I have tried many things and it seems to be just fine pushing at 2 and 4ohms. if its shutting off while bumpin try to hook it up other ways.
This was my first car, and i dont think
i could have gotten a better first
car. I am moving on as i want more
power. For someone who wants light
mods or to stay stock this is a perfect
car, good power, crisp and great
handling. ON a track this car holds
its own against higher end cars well
out of its pricerange.
