Nothing... ever!

General Comments:

What can I say, I bought the car for £700 with 32k on the clock, and I've never had a problem with the Probe. I think it's a wonderful car, handles great, plenty of power and it looks great too.

I've never had a single fault, it has never let me down, but it's all about reading up on the Probe. If you want a car that you put petrol in and forget about, then this isn't the car for you.

Summary:

Nice... expensive to maintain

Faults:

I replaced the 02 Sensors.. 531.00, few scratches... You have to hit the power sun roof to get it started, but no big deal.

General Comments:

I'm 16... bought this for my first car. First few days ran great. then the trouble began, spit and sputter and blow out black smoke.. won't start right after I put gas in it... I replaced the 02 sensors.. still won't run right.. replaced the whole fuel line assembly that was on recall... still blows black smoke and hesitates.. 2 FORD dealers and no 1 can seem to find anything wrong with it... I have become stumped. however when running right I love it.. I love the hum the v6 motor makes.. great handling car great ride.. if it runs right.
