I have just recently bought my Probe for £300. It had no history which is why I was able to get it quite cheap.
However after 2 weeks of driving it I discovered that that engine cuts out while I am driving. This happens whether the engine is warm or cold. Sometimes very frequently other time infrequently.
Having called & taken to various mechanics they say that it could be a number of things. Most if not all have asked for over £100 just to have a look at it & they have assured me there is no guarantee that they will find the fault.
Can anyone help?
For £300 I think I have got a good deal. Despite 125k on the clock it still sounds sweet. Its quite a drinker giving me 250 miles per tank.
The cabin is clapped out with plastics falling off the dash. No rust on roof though which is a common problem. It smokes when I start it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
