Power antenna doesn't want to fully extend.
Taillights leaked water into "trunk" floor. I fixed that by running a bead of silicone between the taillights and body.
Rust is beginning to peek out on the A pillars and the bottoms of the doors. Rust around the sunroof lets drips in.
Outer CV boots tore open. I had to put a speedy boot on the left side CV joint because we could NOT get the shaft to come out. So far so good with that.
Left headlight hinge stuck, the retractor motor heated up and drained the battery. I temporarily fixed it by leaving the headlights in the "up" position. An altercation with a deer gave me the opportunity to remove the fender and fix the problem by simply lubricating the hinge.
The rear window wiper only works when it wants to. The cigarette lighter circuit has a short in it, so I leave out the fuse to keep the battery from draining.
I bought the car from the original owner down in Flat Rock, MI where it was assembled. It was clean and cared for. It had 80,000 mi on it then. I've put 50,000 on it since.
The five-speed shifter is a bit rubbery for my liking.
I enjoy the movable "dash pod" feature, the big sunroof and the retractable headlamps.
The LX is well appointed compared to the cheaper GL, with little details like the leather wrapped steering wheel and nicer upholstry that the base model doesn't have.
The rear disc brakes don't work as efficiently as I expected. The car isn't as stable in snow or ice as I'd hoped for either. Some of the blame goes to the tires, though.
You can fit a heap of stuff in the hatch with the rear split seat folded down.
There is no room for adults in the back seat.
People say their Probes are fast. I guess mine would be too, with the V6 and all. But anyone who has been around really fast cars will tell you that Probes aren't quite in that league. They look faster than they are. That's not a bad thing. I get a kick out of their late eighties "gee whiz it's the car of the future" persona. As a testament to that, I don't think they look all that out of date today. The hood bulges that are there for shock tower clearance are a fun touch. I believe Probes had set a production car record for drag coefficient when they were introduced (correct me if I'm wrong).
I hate passive restraint seat belts, mine haven't broken yet.
Steer clear of Probes with automatics. I've heard several instances where people just gave up on their Probes due to tranny troubles.
