Probe GTs are fantastic cars, to own one is to love one
At 135,000, the (original) timing belt went out. It was apparently never replaced - no big deal, Probes have a Mazda non-interference engine.
Around 139,000, one of the original CV joint's boot tore and slung grease inside the wheel. No big deal, it was supposed to be replaced at 75,000 miles.
I love these cars. I completely love these cars. I currently own two of them, this car, a 1994 Probe GT, and more recently, a 1995 GT.
They handle like nothing else I've ever driven. In fact, I feel - as anyone else who's driven them - as if I'm a better driver behind the wheel of a PGT.
While not the fastest, this sportscar holds its own with a factory 15.2 in the quarter mile. Plenty fast to beat most NA imports!
Anyone with reliability issued most likely owns a base/SE 4cyl model with an automatic transmission - that ATX is notorious for blowing out.
The exterior lines and styling are beautiful, way ahead of its time.
To really appreciate this car's fun factor, you have to have a stick.
One magazine said in a review, "This is the sweetest V6 sports car BMW never built."
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
