1993 Ford Probe GT 2.5 V6 from North America
Overall good car, but Ford should back their very poor distributor design
Distributor is very poor.. replaced it 4 times in one year at $230 a pop...
Interior looks nice.. but is cheap and falls apart..
Stock radio is horrible..
Retracting headlights were problematic..
Manual shifter very sloppy..
Very little room in the back seat.
Snappy little car with the 5 speed manual and 2.5 V6... lots of power in any traffic..
Handles great, fun to drive.. decent gas mileage.. averages about 28-30 highway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

You had no warranty? Or your distributors broke on day 91? Maybe you lost your receipts?

The Probe distributor is not a Ford design, it's a Mitsubishi item. The shifter on my 1996 GT is as smooth as silk (at 172000) still with original clutch! And is very precise, smooth changing is what it's all about. I have not yet had problems with the headlights jamming or motor problems, all I did to improve the radio, was wire in an Alpine controller, stacker and sub, and now it sounds great.
