Front Seats Ranked 1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata worse.
"Both had good seats, but the probes upholstry (not hte leather) was bullet proof, supportive, and comfortable."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1993 Mazda MX-5 Miata worse.
"Huge hatch back cargo space, optional removable cargo tray made this thing a great hauler, and youd never think it was. Very practical."

If You Treat It Right, It Will Treat You Right. Great First Car. — This car was pretty darn fun to drive, it was decently quick for being naturally aspirated. It handled like it was on rails. It needed some minor fixes here and there but nothing real deeply involved or in the wallet.

Pros: Cheap, reliable, fun.

Cons: Pain to work on.

Very Fast — Has to have the 2.5liter v6 with the 5 speed manual transmission. I loved my 93 Probe GT wish I would of never sold it. This was one of the best cars that I owned at the time. I beat a cobalt SS off the line in a race and thats all I have to say about that.

Pros: The Manual tranny

Cons: compacted

Pgt — This car had everything except a name. Performance - Great acceleration and amazing Braking and handling. Takes turbos insanely well.. With a low boost turbo one can easily expect anywhere from 230-300 WHP. Build Quality - Mine had 140,000 Miles on it, things broke. But over all it was a great car. Appearance - Styling was much ahead of it's time. Still looks better then a lot of cars on the road today. Fun Factor - Most fun car i've ever driven hands down. Nothing i've driven since even comes close.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Fun to drive. What else is there?

Cons: Transmissions - They are weak and take stand up to a lot of abuse.

Owning A Probe — Even though it's a ford make, the car still runs strong. It has never let me down and the performance is alright. I like the look of the car and the interior isn't all that bad actually. The car is really fun to drive especially if its a 5-speed.

Pros: Looks and performance

Cons: the color

A Cheap, Great Sports Car With Great Gas Mileage. —

Performance - it has a small twenty four valve v6, but has a great design. it has a variable resonance induction system which was designed by porsche. and the stroke is much shorter than the bore so it has a lot of rpm(which is something you would find in a ferrari). it also has duel overhead cams giving optimal torque/horsepower at any rpm. the brakes are phenomenal, discs all the way around. handling wise, a guy that professionally drifts s14 race cars(Phil Morrison) said that the probe gt handles better than the s14 which has a professional racing suspension. Build Quality - for being so old i wouldn't have expected this car to be built so good. it takes hours just to get the front bumper off because of where everything is at, hidden and underneath other things, its not built cheap..and there is virtually no blind spots, the car was designed very well, unlike a mitsubishi eclispe, you can see where the front of the car stops, and through your rear windshield. sway bar links and engine mounts tend to go, as do distributors and oxygen sensors but thats normal for any car. Apperance - the interior looks very modern to this day, especially if you put a new stereo in it. it only has one cup holder though.. exterior wise, it looks like it was made in 2008! sleek body styling, power windows, power moonroof. Cost - the car can be found very cheap nowadays but most likely they aren't in good condition. new back in 93 the car cost $21,000, so today it would cost a lot more. Fun Factor - the car is fun to drive, very sporty. it has great gas mileage, even better than a cobalt .

Pros: sporty, fast, looks good, cheap.

Cons: not a lot of 93-97 gt's around, if there are, then probably not in good condition.

Fastest Car I've Owned. — The Probe would have made a great Mustang Killer if it had RWD. The one i had, came with the KTLE motor with 201 HP and it was QUICK! The fastest car I've owned and i will eventually buy another. If it's a first car or even a project car it's a good choice. I didn't have any real problems I only sold it so i could get my GTi. The Torque of the V6 was noticable but so was the gas bill. It was a bit of a guzzler, but it was fun to drive.

Pros: good looking for it's age. fast. fun to drive.

Cons: Old, parts were at times hard to find. cheap build materials.
