1993 Ford Probe GT 2.5L DOHC from North America
A Truly Great Sports Car!
Interior door panels fell off.
Hatch struts gave out.
Cassette deck doesn't work.
Replaced 1 timing belt.
Oil in spark plug holes.
Re-did CV joints about 3-4 times.
A few dash panel bulbs are burned out.
Power antenna broke.
Rocker arm cover oil leakage.
This car has almost 218,000 miles on it. Yes, it's the original engine, and yes, it does use some oil, most of which is likely leaking out via the rocker arm covers.
This car WANTS to be driven! With all the little things that are wrong with it and need to be fixed, this car still wants to get up and go!! It just keeps going and going and going...!
When it was younger, my 93 Probe GT would handle anything I drove it through, and accelerated very quickly (it still accelerates quickly actually, even with 218,000 miles on it!). It was pure pleasure to drive.
I'm rejuvenating it, part by part, because it deserves a new life. My Probe GT has served me well, and I believe I will keep it for the rest of my life.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
