Not A Bad Car, Throw In Some Upgrades And It's An Easy Sleeper!! — This car is very under rated! I was very pleased with the performance aspect, handles like a dream. Mine had some performance upgrades so it was quick, very quick. On days where it was nice out though and I wanted to go for a cruise I still got decent gas mileage. The way it looked after a good wash and wax, def. turned heads.

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

Pros: fun,snappy, under estimated car

Cons: hard to work on things yourself, not a ot of room under the hood.

Good First Driver — fast fast fast. the V-6 model could compete with most larger scale cars. the GT could take most mustangs any day. especially the A/T V-6's. fun to drive good gas mileage kinda ugly looking. 2 words

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

Pros: fast

Cons: small and hard to find parts for

Good Car For Someone Wanting To Rice Out A Car For Cheap, Lots Of Performance Upgrades Available. — acceleration is not bad for a cheap car, handling is decent but could be a lot better, not many repairs needed for the short time I owned on of these, appearance wise the front ends look sharp but the sides are ugly rear ends look decent, cost of ownership, parts are decently priced if you shop smart, gas mileage could better, fun factor is its front wheel drive therefor its crap!

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

Pros: sporty lookin for cheap, insurance is a bit high since its a 2 door.

Cons: its front wheel drive.

A Front Wheel Drive, 4 Passenger Miata — The Ford Probe was actually intended to replace the Mustang in the late eighties. Luckily it didn't. The Probe I owned was the last year it was available. It had the G.T. package along with the 5 speed manual tranny. I loved it. Handled awesome, mechanically reliable, pretty quick, and a top speed of about 130. Mazda had there own version of the Probe called the MX-6, same exact car, a little different look. If your looking at one, go for the G.T. package with the manual transmission.

Pros: Great looks, great handling, great engine

Cons: A lot of electrical gremlins.  Headlights work sometimes.

Ford Probe 2.5l V6 1997 Black — Performance - The 2.5l V6 engine pulled really well, had about 190Bhp with the stainless manifolds and downpipe i had put on it. Build Quality - Was really good, just an arse of a job to change things like the clutch. Appearance - From the front it looks amazing, love the pop up headlights, but the rear does let it down. Cost - Averaged around 28mpg which wasnt too good, but could live with, its a high insurance group too, cost me a lot of money a month! Fun - Very fun taking the engine upto 8k revs, however not so fun seeing the fuel gauge drop at the same time!

Pros: Performance, Condition

Cons: Rear End!
