"I bought the car used in 1996 (it had 32,000 miles on it), so have had it for 19 years. I have driven it several times from Oregon to the Bay Area and vice versa, and also drive it daily around town. It looks a bit like a sports car. I have always taken good care of it, regular oil changes, new tires, and whatever needed to be fixed, I had done."

"This was our first new car. It has performed far better than one would expect for its price point. Smooth transmission, quick handling, fast..no need for a 6 cyl. We have traveled all over the east coast with this car from Maine to Florida. It handles mountains with A/C on without any lag. After 17 years and almost 170,000 miles, we are selling it. Alas, my spine no longer will let me get in and out of a low slung sports coupe. The Probe has aged better over the last 17 years than I have, LOL. The Probe was one of the best sports coupe that Ford built, except of course for the iconic Ford Mustang. It had the advantage of being a Mazda with a Ford body. Stylish, it still looks great after all these years and we never felt like we were driving an old car. Put the seats down and you have a small station wagon. Its amazing what you can fit in that car. I hate to sell it, but after buying a new Fusion, I really can't afford to keep it and our Jeep too. I just hope the next driver of this amazing vehicle appreciates it as much as I do."

"I got this car used in July of 2013, and it had a boatload of issues with it. Since July, I've had it break down on me at least 3 times. Trying to change the alternator is nearly impossible, because the A/C is in the way above it and the drive shaft is in the way below it. The engine looks like my 2 year old nephew put it together and it's almost impossible to find any rhyme or reason to how it was assembled. Please, save yourself the trouble- although it's a very nice car, working on it is the downfall."

I own this car - My approximate mileage is 77,000overall rating 10 of 10rating details
Pros: "Handles great, good on gas considering the power"
Cons: "backseat cramped"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Bought this car new in '97. Fun to drive, fits like a glove and still runs like new after 16 years. Hatchback allows hauling big loads, a plus. Backseat not comfortable for riding but who cares. I leave the seat down all the time and the dog loves it. I have replaced used parts from the internet without problem. Great A/C. Design still looks current. In fact I've had the younger crowd think it was something new, since they weren't alive when they were made. The only problem I have is that I can't part with it for a newer car. Not much to gain."
