very cool

by Jager from North East on Wed Jul 21 2010

Even the ricers look twice at my Probe. Loads of aftermarket goodies to be had including some very cool exotic body panels. This is my second Probe GT, the first was a black GTS, very cool. Holds it own against just about anything else out there in its class, new or old. The styling never gets old... FORD should build a new version w/ a 300hp twin turbo V something in it. At 30MPG even the newest econo box is envious of this car.. problem being it sips premium fuel. You can up grade the motor to a J-spec KLZ @ 200hp, add a turbo and your pushing 250hp. Great grand touring car for long trips, comfy, fast and with a good sound system your there in style.

Love This Car

by Dieug from Eugene, OR on Tue Jun 03 2008

I bought this car new 11 years ago and it now has 91,000 miles on it. It runs like a champ and is a joy to drive. The cargo capacity is awesome and it gets better gas mileage than a lot of new cars on the market (manual). However, if you are over 5' 10" you may need a car with more head room.

Awsome Car

by Sports Car Enthusiast from Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania on Mon Sep 19 2011

The car is great. My probe has 55,000 miles and is gonna run forever. Right now its been sitting in my parking lot for about 4 months because of personal issues but i just drove it the other day and its still purrinn. i have a magna flow exhaust and tinted windows and cops never do anything. Great car!!

Not reliable, not very comfortable

by Sorensen1 from Thornton, Colorado on Mon Sep 04 2006

It's a fun car to drive, handling and power is great, but it's a little uncomfortable if you're tall and the reliability isn't great.
