1995 Ford Probe SE 2.0 from North America
For the sake of your mind and your wallet, get something else
Lots of little annoying things like interior trim breaking, squeaks and rattles, broken speakers, warped seats, etc.
Other major things such as failed engine management computers, chronic stalling no matter who tries to fix it, steering wheel always twitches at highway speeds and no one seems to be able to fix that either, and there are several buzzes that come from the engine which cause me to think that something serious is going to happen in the near future.
The car is pretty good for the first 50,000 miles or so, after that, get rid of it. The number of problems I've had has been significant and very irritating as well.
The handling is crisp, and the visibility is good. I just don't feel that I'm driving a solid car at all.
The seats are very uncomfortable, especially for trips over an hour, and the fuel economy isn't that great despite it being a four cylinder.
The materials inside look and feel cheap. The power windows make a crunching sound when they close too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I own a ford probe se and it has 88,000 miles and none of those things have gone wrong with it. I think it is an awesome car, just difficult to sup up. It just all depends on how well you take care of it and obviously you didn't take care of it very well.

Hi I own a probe SE and it has just about 74,000 miles on it and it hasn't had any major problems. you probabley don't treat it right. It is however harder to soup up then most sports cars, but it's still the best car I have ever driven. I have had a 93' firebird and a 90' Probe GT. The SE model is the best all around I think.

I own a 1995 Ford Probe SE, and it has hit 144,424 miles, and it is still going strong. Minor problems, but that comes with the mileage. The person who had it before me didn't even take care of it.
Just put it this way, I am a Chevy fan (all Chevys), but Ford made this car right. It handles well, is a little sluggish before 3000 RPM, but after that it sort of kicks you into your seat.
Overall this is a good buy, and parts are easy to find.
