Both headlight motors are non-functional. The first one just started to hesitate to come up before finally not coming up at all. The second one, I think, had a massive short and decided to go up and down about 250 times before I disconnected the motor.
Heater core was leaking. This was the dealership's fault though, they were supposed to replace it, and ended up not doing so. There's probably a good reason why you shouldn't take an obscure Ford to a GM dealership for servicing.
Heater only works when I floor it for a long stretch of road.
The Probe caught my eye among the other cars in my price range, it looked fast and it was much higher quality on the inside.
The interior, while mostly hard plastic, is incredibly ergonomic and easy to use. The seats are the most comfortable I've ever sat in.
The engine produces a lot of power for this class of car.
Substantial stock exhaust note. DOES turn heads when I blip the throttle.
The transmission makes crisp upshifts, though the downshifts slip quite a bit. I blame this on the old age of the transmission and the poor reliability of the 4EAT anyhow.
The cargo room is massive. I fit 2 gas grills in side by side, although it took a lot of coaxing.
The rear seats do not exist. I consider the back to be a "random crap shelf" at best.
Handles pretty well, but the body roll is very noticeable.
Very heavy steering, no feedback from the front wheels.
Has a tendency to idle high when I start it, but a quick blip of the throttle fixes this. My guess is the butterfly valve is sticking open too far maybe?
