Don't buy a Ford Probe
By Matt on


1997 Ford Probe GT 2dr Hatchback


It's a fun car to drive but reliability isn't great. I've replaced both cv joints, alternator, catalytic converter, two distributors, and to top it all off, right after I bought it with 29,000 miles on it, the electrical "brain" that controls all electronics crapped out. Even with the extended warranty that came with the car when I bought it used it still cost me 200 bucks to fix it! RIDICULOUS! That's why I'm going to buy a Toyota.

Best Features

Fun to drive (when not in the shop).

Worst Features

Not much head room for tall people.
