1993 Ford Probe 2dr Hatchback


Review

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.

Review

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.


Best Features

Milage, easy to fix, quick, interior/exterior styling, handling.


Worst Features

Easier access to less expensive quality parts. Better paint (faded).

Review

This car was my first...for the most
part its been a decent car. But the
paint is way too soft, the quality of
the interior sux, and the exhaust has
always got something up its a**
because it falls apart everywhere. If
its reliability we're talking about,
then this car would be ranked pretty
damn high in my books. Ive replaced
the distributer 2x now and the problem
seems to have finally faded. Ever since
this issue and a faulty fuel pump, the
car has been dependable. But I do
agree with about every other probe
owner about the outrageous prices to
fix anything.


Best Features

Reliable, good looking, runs forever...and then some.


Worst Features

Better interior build quality, a little more power, harder paint.

Review

For being 11 years old, the body has
stayed in great shape. However, I have
replaced just about everything on this
car and half of it twice over within
122,00 miles. The engine is aluminum
block engine which overheats easily and
is extremly expensive to replace. This
car has cost me a fortune. But has
never left me stranded!


Best Features

Smooth body design will keep it in style for years. The interior is very durable. Maneuvers quickly.


Worst Features

The engine is very sluggish and shifts gears very hard. The mechanical parts on this car don't last long and are way too expensive.

Review

I loved this car with all it's power.
Had problems at the get go and had the
tranny replaced under warranty at
40000. Muffler is expensive and have
replaced 3 times in 10 years. Had power
brakes disconnected 3 years ago when
they malfuntioned on the highway and
dealship couldn't figure out the
problem. Catalytic is now gone and the
powersteering has malfunctioned for the
5th time and it's off to the scrapeheap
for this puppy. Got stolen once,
attempted once more and broken into 2
more times in 4 years (I do not live in
a bad area, either!)


Best Features

Power. This car floated like my 'vette. Love the comfort and the beautiful interior. Trunkspace is incredible. Nice, fat tires. Hugged corners like a baby!


Worst Features

Could have improved the powersteering, ABS, incredibly expensive muffler system. Cheap stereo and speakers could have been much better for what this car cost.
