i have gone through many cars and this
is one of my favorites to just cruise
around in. Great power for a little
car. Its fun to drive and there is
many tuner options that can be
achieved for this car that normally
isnt thought of. i put a water pump
and timing belt in and i havent had to
touch mine. It has ran great.
the limitless possibilities
color scheme on the inside is pretty
dumb with a maroon stripe in it
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.
Handling, on a track I could beat
people stock, when they were modified :)
Interior should have been better...
shouldnt have stopped, gotten a svt
model and rwd... but oh well ford was
stupid and stopped making it...
I brought my PROBE used with 60/k in
1997. Red of course, when cleaned it
always looked brand new. I now have
almost 170/k miles on it. Very
reliable, problem areas idle
control,faded paint,expensive parts and
high insurance. Still has the original
clutch!!! Great gas mileage and fun to
drive, could use more power. Hatch is
very useful. From day one I used only
synthetic or semi syn. oil. The engine
still sounds brand new,plenty of life
left. K&N air filter and spit fire
plugs....will change to BOSCH platinum
4 plugs. I used either 93 or 89
octane....she runs strong on 93.
Love this car! Even though the idle
control has been bad for a year, I
drive it everywhere and love it. 169000
miles and still going. And easy to fix,
if you can find the parts. It does what
I need it to do and I can fit my golf
clubs in the trunk.
Milage, easy to fix, quick,
interior/exterior styling, handling.
Easier access to less expensive quality
parts. Better paint (faded).
