The Ford Probe GT is a nice sports car if you have time to tinker. You will spend money to drive this car daily as there is always something going wrong. With a little love and a big wallet this car will put a smile on your face in bends and turns as well as the flat runs on the hyways.
Aftermarket support has picked up for this little fireball and now you can get everything from a bug-shield to a full custom turbo unit. (not offered stock, but should have been)
The ride is very unforgiving, so if your looking for a cadillac feeling glide, this isn't the car for you. Pot holes feel 6 foot deep, but corners feel if you were on rails.
163 factory ponies push this car to 100MPH with little effort, but driving it hard will drain your savings account and give you something to do every weekend.
The only complaint I have is the weak transmission that seems to fail due to extreme heat caused by its weak shift points and programing. But a valve body modification and transmission cooler will solve that problem for around 300 US dollars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
