Buy a Trans before you buy the car
By Barneke on


1996 Ford Probe SE 2dr Hatchback


I have not misused the car and I have
performed all of the scheduled
maintenance on the car. At 75,263
miles reverse disappeared. Needless to
say a I need a new transmission. The
cost of the work out weighs the value
of the car. $900.00 for one out of a
junk yard, not rebuilt and about 1000
in labor. I contacting Ford regarding
the problem and informed them about the
widspread transmission problems with
the Probe. They are in denial about
this issue and have informed me that
their is currently no program in place
to help me. This model car is a money
pit, avoid it!
