1994 Ford Probe 2dr Hatchback


Good car for the dollar. 2.5L V6 humps with the 5-speed. Just wish the KLZE engine was available in the U.S. Extreme acceleration for a 164HP engine. The 5-speed is a must, FUN FUN FUN! Tires are expensive. Both CV joints pooped on me. Interior rattles like a snake, but all of them do. Exhaust is tuned nicely. Looks aren't bad, very customizable car. Car doesn't get much glory considering it's a domestic, Ford. Surprises many! Sits low to the ground, not snow-friendly. If the engine goes, KLZE's can be imported from Canada or Asia. The KLZE engine is directly swappable and pushes 200HP. Can you imagine?

Best Features

Acceleration. Highway look out, passing is fun, 3rd gear will kill you. Low stance, and AMAZING handling. Customizable, if desired. Sounds good, engine is strong tuned. Dual overhead cam lets it rip. Looks aren't bad, small, compact keeps it very mobile!

Worst Features

INTERIOR RATTLES, that is the worst feature. Expensive repairs. Attracts police! 300ZX style headlights would have been sweet. Tires aren't cheap. Timing belt is impossible to get at if needs attention, hope it holds out! Why no turbo option like in the 89- 92 years, would have been nice.
