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.

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.

Not reliable, not very comfortable

by from Thornton, Colorado on September 4, 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.
