1994 Ford Probe SE 16v DOHC 2.0 from North America
Nicely priced and what a show car
When I first got it, the car was just beautiful except for the exhaust looking like half inch stub. I fixed that easily by replacing it with a Magnaflow 4 in ricer. I wasn't satisfied with the performance of the engine, so I replaced spark plugs with high resistance, water pump, air conditioning pump, throttle body, K&N air filter, Eagle LS 225/50/16 sitting on Loco 16's. It does get a little expensive though when the car is crying out to you saying, "Give me more, body kits are killer." So what was I gonna say to that? I know, "oh yeah." So after an LED wing, a few lights, some Kicker Comp VR's, a "killer" body kit, and a few coats of paint with some flames I was all set. I like the overall look of even the base models. The car is a deal with insurance and it's a looker.
Being an automatic takes away the power that usually have with the gearing, but being a 4 cylinder it handles and picks up the power around 4k rpm. Drives very well on the corners and it wouldn't be too bad if it have a turbo for the drag strip. Comfort is surprising for the size of the car, but for two people it's perfect. Like the other reviews say, "you might as well throw the back seat away."
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
