1994 Ford Probe 2.5 V6 petrol from UK and Ireland
A bit like Chicken Pox, intensely irritating all the time you have it!
Front brake discs failed (£118.00).
Rear disc calipers. Hand brake kept locking on, (£268.00) each.
Leaked oil into the plug pockets.
Bosch immobiliser ruined the ignition switch (£129.00), and distributor burned out (£587.86).
Bonnet paint broke down, and respray cost £575, as all the original paint had to be removed.
Was off the road from 21/12/97 until 20/1/98.
We part ex-ed this for a new 1.6 litre Hyundai Coupe. The people who had this after us experienced similar expensive repairs.
Had charisma, but was undoubtedly the worst, most unreliable and expensive heap of rubbish we have ever owned.
Should have had a Government health warning on it!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
