initially i was not to impressed with my probe gt, but once i sorted out the electrical
distributor problem by replacing it, i havent had a problem.it gets a lot of use these days and is an economical car to run, plus it looks the part and drives and handles really well. i would happily recommend one, just make sure it has been regularly serviced and looked after, and you should have a great vehicle at atnext to nothing cost !i have owned a few sporty cars, like r33 skyline, 2x300 zx coupes,...

these are great cars , aging gracefully, but you do need to spend money to bring them back to a reliable vehicle . replacement of cam belt,tensioner,idlers, waterpump, plugs, and hopefully not the distibutor or fuel pump will get it up to good reliability. i had to replace my v6 gt distributor [ cost $1565 ] and the fuel pump , you have to drop the tank, its a pain , total cost of that $265, i have spent all up about $3000, but in australia these were a $45,000 car ,so buying it cheaply...

probes are great cars as long as you service them regularly, every 5000klms, the most common faults are distributor problems, and minor oil leaks via the rocker gaskets.usually replacing the distributor fixes the major ignition module/crank angle sensor problems , which i did, and i put in a new fuel pump, absolute total reliability since. i use mobil 1 5w-50 oil, puralator oil filters, ngk plugs, k and n air filter and fuel filter. my car had been looked after, but still needed alittle...

I own 2 Probes and I have to say they are amazing cars, good looking, they have great handling and almost surreal to drive, it really does feel like your driving something special.
As for faults I have not had any at all but they have both been fully serviced from new and well looked after. service your probe every 3000 miles.
When viewing a probe, check the sunroof for rust, check pop up lights pop up, check service history, and all electrics work properly, go for low mileage, I got mine... (read more)

Hi i got a 93 gt tunned up a new full exhaust, changed the wheels n lower suspension, also couple of other minor things. it 's great!! i enjoy the ride each time
had the chance of driving a mustang cobra straight from the dealer and on my opinion ill stick to the probe.
as they say in other reviews the only letdown is the front wheel drive besides that I love this Ford Probe 2.5 V6. (read more)

i have owned 2 of these Ford Probe 2.5 V6 and the same electric fault has appeared on both, and not a cheap fix either. Other than that the drive is nice the engine sounds good to. but the biggest let down is the front wheel drive, which was shocking as its a american car for there market. i mean the power can be delievered so much better if it went to the back. as going round corners is a slow process. ha. this car is good but i wouldnt have another.

I have always looked at finally and opted to move from my Saab 9000 to the awesome probe. I absolutely love it. The lads at work laugh at me as I use it for the school runs with child seats in it but I hammer it at weekends. Small wheels and light steering under acceleration but great fun for no money. 65K full service history for little over a grand! I want to keep my 'green(silver)' one with tan leather interior original. Lovely cheap good looking car. (read more)

Do you remember the Ford Probe 2.5 V6? We all wanted one, more exclusive than a 3 series, classier than an MR2 and faster than a Merc and yet so few sold? Now these superb cars are just criminaly cheap. £1500 buys the nest. Get a 24V if you can afford the fuel bills because the grunt at 60Mph scares your WRX boys and its burble is just lovely. The 16V is not the poor relation, it's a lovely car and a worthy contender for your pound. Whatever you buy, visit ukpoc.co.uk for great... (read more)

Well, I owned an Electric Blue 16v Ford Probe, and loved it to bits. Over the 3 or 4 years that I owned the car, I modified the car to be a '24v-look-alike'. This involved changing the cloth interior for grey leather, fitting a powerflow exhaust to get a nice tone from the car, fitting 24v style alloys and the 24v style cladding to the sides of the car (this sadly was never fitted to a 16v standard)
I sadly had an accident in the 16v and so when it came to replacing it, It was already... (read more)

I love this Ford Probe 2.5 V6 sports car and its a lot of car for what there worth! Dont buy the 16v version as its very un-relible, and seriously under powered for its weight. If you buy the V6 2.5 model you'll get better suspension wheels AND a Mazda MX6 engine that is just waiting to be opened up. Invest in a K&N 57i induction kit and you'll unleash the power under the bonnet and it'll sound like a v12 monster. BUT back to my bad points comment above.... if you find a probe cutting out...
