1994 Ford Probe GT 2.5L from North America
Very expensive to run, but a blast to drive!
This car has cost me over $10,000 cdn in repair cost, most of which I put down to the very high service costs at the Ford dealerships.
I have had to change my brakes many times: this includes Ball Joints, Rotors, Calipers, Organic Pads! The hand brake hasn't worked right for years.
I also have had trouble with my Rack and Pinion Steering, which ofcourse came with a front end alignment. Then there was the Tie rods and the sway links on the rear.
Also had to replace the head casket because oil was leaking into the sparkes plugs, and now its happening again.
To top it all off my paint looks terrible! It is all faded and no matter what I use it will not shine up. I think Ford only used 1 coat of paint in 1994 instead of the usually two.
My interior dash light now has burnt out along with the door panel lights and the fuel cut off light is always on.
I almost forgot to mention that the AC is gone, the water pump and starter motor had to be replaced. I kid you not and I have all the bills to prove it.
Needless to say I am very unhappy with all the problems and costs associated with this CAR!
I still love to drive it even though I have to use premium gas at 10 cents more per litre.
I am overall very disappointed with how expensive it is to keep this car on the road.
I think Ford should give me a free car!
When it is in the road watch out!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You might have got a one in a million that just didn't come out of the factory right or, the previous owner didn't take care of it. I love mine even if I have only had it a week, so if I do have all of thoes problems you are talking about (which I hope I don't) I will submit another comment apologizing. I just bought mine a week ago, and it has 122,000 miles on it and it runs very good, very fast, and has some really sweet handling. (Dennis)
