1996 Ford Probe GT 2dr Hatchback


I bought this car with 20K, now have
75K on it. Love driving it, but have
had numerous problems: In the first
year, the CD player, and the
hydraulics for the hatchback/trunk
door went out. The radiator had to be
replaced. Seatbelt buckles for both
front seats had to be replaced. The
EEC relay board and a battery cable
cover just got replaced today ($350
plus towing). Without the EEC thing,
the car won't even start. I'm
postponing $1500 worth of emissions
parts (oxygen sensors, etc.) Cover
panels around passenger feet keep
falling off. Parts are VERY EXPENSIVE
+ HARD TO FIND! Now just want to get
running and sell it, alas!

Best Features

Exterior body. Interior color (tan). The sunroof.

Worst Features

Since Ford no longer makes Probes, what's to improve? I'd like to see Ford truly make QUALITY their JOB #1
