"I bought my '97 Probe new. The only repairs have been a new clutch, radiator, and timing belt. 245,000 miles later, I've finally had to park it. Needs waterpump and timing belt kit. I hope to possibly get another engine eventually. Great car!!"
"had this little probe 13yrs and want to keep it another 13. runs great. never a problem. and gas mileage? unbelievable! I go FOREVER on one tank of gas. I have a second car as well, but drive the probe because of the excellent gas mileage."
"First was a 93 4cyl man trans put the engine into a nicer car at 254,000 next was a v6 man trans never do that again had an unfixable distributor problem but engine ran till 217,000 miles
now the latest one still running very well at 278,000 miles
My suggestion 4 cyl man trans only is worth its weight in gold all they have needed is maint great fuel economy. also the v6 s seam to get beat half to death by the kids because they are very powerfull... Also the CD4E auto trans is very poor dont do it you will pay the price!"
