1996 Ford Probe SE 2dr Hatchback


This car is good if you're only looking
for fuel efficiency & a large cargo
area. This car is bad when it comes to
repairing it. It is half Mazda and
half Ford - you'll need both metric and
standard tools to work on it yourself &
the engine is really cramped & tightly
packed - what a pain! After only 63000
miles and 6 years, my model has many
rattles and many broken interior parts
including problems with the door
handles that have had extensive
warranty work on them to no avail. The
interior is just too cramped. I would
not recommend this car to anyone but a

Best Features

The tight steering, comfortable seats, exterior body styling, good cornering, fuel efficiency, and GREAT TRUNK! THIS CAR CAN HAUL A LOT MORE THAN YOU WOULD EXPECT!

Worst Features

The heater needs improvement. The plastic interior parts (esp. the cup holder & console) need work & it needs a bigger glove box. Ford needs to stop sharing parts w/ Mazda. The engine parts are more than a standard Ford part because they're mostly foreign Mazda parts.
