1993 Ford Probe 2dr Hatchback


...to be fair it has less than 50K on the odometer because it was garaged for years. So far it has been a mixed bag: capable handling, practical and fun to drive but reliability issues spoil the experience. First the praise: gotta love the silky smooth V6, the precise steering and confident handling - it feels like it's on rails. After adding Beck Arnley rotors and pads the brakes feel strong and well modulated. The rear seats are only suited for the kiddies, but when folded down make for a HUGE trunk. Negatives: valve head gasket needs replacement as its starting to smell like burnt oil.

Best Features

V6, handling, brakes, well bolstered seats with lumbar support, COLD A/C, excellent visibility!

Worst Features

Cheap/flimsy interior plastics, fragile exterior paint, water leaks from hatch, airbag warning light, rattling A/C compressor, rear calipers locked once, hatch lift supports went out, windows don't seal properly resulting in wind noise, road noise, worst stock stereo EVER made, lazy auto tranny.
