So far, the only major thing that has failed on the car mechanically since I got it was the alternator, which went out a few months after I got the car.
The only other things of consequence that have happened are two of the cooling system hoses blowing out, probably due to the age of the rubber, but these are not major problems to repair.
This is the second vehicle I have owned; the previous car that I had, a 1983 Honda Accord, dropped it's transmission on me which necessitated the purchase of a new vehicle.
For a four cylinder car, I have to admit that this car has respectable acceleration and cornering capabilities.
It's fuel economy at present leaves much to be desired in comparison to my Honda, but then again the engine in the Probe by comparison is also a half liter bigger than my old Accord.
The only things that I am a bit frustrated with about the car though are the lack of parts for it, either OEM or aftermarket, which makes customization or even simple repair difficult at best.
