1993 Ford Probe GT 2.5 24 valve OHC from North America
This car is some of the best engineering I have every seen
The brakes need some work. They fade real bad. It seems to have a leak somewhere, but I cannot seem to find it.
I have driven a lot of cars in my life. The Ford Probe ranks as one of the highest in my book. It is sporty, looks great, has a lot of bells and whistles and is fun and responsive.
It's Mazda engine is a big plus from a reliability standpoint and it is easy to do preventative maintenance.
If this was all, it would be enough. But there is more to this little gem than meets the eye. Today, I had a wreck in my 93 GT.
Now, before everyone gets upset, let me tell you that I was traveling about 60 miles per hour and was taking an exit on the highway when my right rear tire clipped a curb and blew out. The car spun into a concrete barrier and destroyed the front bumper cover. The left fender and right rear quarter panel were damaged, but repairable. The rear bumper cover was scraped up pretty good, too.
But the car was able to be driven away. No fluids leaked and there was no major crunch of metal. In fact, the car was completely safe to drive down the highway after I changed the tire. After a 60 MPH smack-down, I was really impressed with the ability to take the damage and get on with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I also just had a wreck in my 1993 Ford Probe GT the other day. Again, it was on the freeway and I rear ended the car in front of me at about 45mph. The other car's rear bumper was trashed, but my Probe only had some easily repairable dents to the front bumper cover. I was amazed that nothing in the engine was leaking or anything. I was able to drive away in it, making my love for this car even greater.
