Nice car for its time; good first car
By Bonka on


1993 Ford Probe 2dr Hatchback


Bought as a winter car with ~132,500 miles. Black on black, loaded and auto. Cousin of the Mazda MX-6, prefer styling on Probe, notably the GT version. Wide 16x7 5-spoke wheels and body accents (spoiler, side skirts, door caps, front bumper) make this a nice looking car. Reasonable power from V6 but weak in the low end. Nice interior layout. Great handling characteristics (weakened by the cheap tires). Stiff suspension. Steering response a little light. Common problems oil leaks which I have (vc gaskets, oil pressure sensor). Automatic is terrible. Hunts for shifts. Requires cooler for longevity. Back seat for looks only. Deep trunk but high lift gate.

Best Features

Handling, styling, 4-wheel disc brakes, bucket seats.

Worst Features

Automatic transmission performance/reliability, V6 mediocre fuel economy, cheap construction on interior door panels ('93), thin paint.
