1993 Ford Probe SE 2.0 DOHC from North America
The tires don't grip very well when it's moist outside.
At first there were no problems with it, but because of how I drive it parts wear out quickly.
It eats through breaks every 6000 miles.
At 123,000 miles my right front brake cylinder went out, along with inner tie rod ends.
At 127,000 miles my altinator went out.
At 130,000 miles it developed a hairline fracture in the water pump.
At 142,000 miles my automatic transmission went out. Then I replaced the transmission. To weeks later at 144,000 miles I blew that transmission up.
Currently I am converting it by myself to a 5 speed manual transmission.
My Ford Probe is not a Ford though, it was one of the few manufactured by Mazda.
It is a very fast car.
Its automatic transmission does a second gear scratch when it shifts.
Very to work on.
Best car I've ever owened.
Stock it does a 15 second quarter mile.
Very Strong Engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Outstading performance for a base model car.

15 second 1/4 mile with 115 HP and an automatic?? Boy you have a warped sense of either time or distance. I had a '93 Probe SE with a 5-speed and NO WAY was it that fast. Get a grip!

That's a pretty good trick getting a 15.0 second time in the quarter mile, with 4 cylinder automatic, when the GT V-6 does it in 15.8 seconds with a 5 speed. You need a new stopwatch!!

No, No... he means 0 to 60 in 15 seconds.
