Do not buy one
Interestingly enough, the same as some of the other reports but with some extra problems too:
Rear calipers replaced twice now.
Immobiliser packed up.
New spark leads (£190).
Six new tyres altogether.
Air conditioning packed up too.
This car cost me £24,000 and I have done nothing but pay out more and more money on repairs. My previous car I had for seven years and never spent a penny on it. This car has cost me a fortune and I would strongly recommend that people do not buy one. Many friends of friends have had exactly the same problems with their Probes. It has very low mileage and has been treated well but the problems keep occurring. Please also add to the list above that the alloy wheels corroded within a year, as well, and had to be replaced.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
