Neat car, but ages poorly

1995 Ford Probe SE 2dr Hatchback


Bought her used, had her for 2.5 years
now. I really love driving her, and up
till now, i have had few problems;
rotors, battery, stuff like that at
about $100 a pop, and not too
frequent. But last month, I had to
replace the whole transmission at
87,000 mi - cost me $2100 to do it!
Now, she's giving me trouble starting
in the morning, and it could be the
Idle Air Control (IAC is $600 to
replace), or the Mass Air-flow Sensor
(MAF is $800 to replace). I don't know
which, and it could be neither, and
something less expensive; but I am
bracing myself for the worst!

I'm afraid as much as I like her, I
could not recommend to others to buy
this car.

Best Features

The drive is smooth and the engine is quiet. It's sleek and pretty; and I still get comments on it going into its 8th year. I just wish she wouldn't surprise me with wierd problems so much.

Worst Features

Can we try to build a model in which the most expensive things to fix aren't the first things to go?!
