1992 Ford Probe GL 4 Cylinder from North America
Bad brake pads right after we bought it. Were replaced for free.
Brake pads went bad again about a year later. Had a lot of metal-to-metal grinding a few times, also. No big deal, didn't cost much to replace.
Needed new muffler system at about 60,000 miles. Cost me around $400.
Needed new battery at 82,000 miles.
This was actually my very first car, I drove my parents' Buick before it. Huge difference in all aspects. I didn't like the Buick because it was as big as a boat, while the Probe is a lot smaller.
I've had a lot of fun driving it. It's a very fun car to drive, very "zippy". For a 4-cylinder, it's got a lot of "get up and go".
All in all, I haven't had very many problems with this car. It's a very reliable car, despite what some people may think. The only downfall is how small it is. I'm almost six feet tall, so it wasn't very comfortable for long drives. Other than that, it's an awesome car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
