Eats Transmissions For Lunch
By Steve Wormuth on


1996 Ford Probe SE 2dr Hatchback


Check around and verify before buying
one of these. I'm not making this
up. Transmissions are known to fail,
and cannot be found used and still
shifting. Ford will gladly sell you a
$3500 rebuilt with little warranty if
you ask nicely. Babied this car, and
it sits in the yard needing $3500 to
move again. Just avoid it... Trust
me, it looks pretty, but it's not
worth it!

Best Features

Pretty, comfortable...

Worst Features

Make a transmission that doesn't die after 50,000 miles... Won't be many of these still running in 5 more years...
