They’re fantastic vehicles, and back in my Dodge Stealth/Mitsu 3000-GT phase, I wanted one.

However, avoid sticking it up your ass.

A 2.5L Ford Probe can be reliable with good care, and the 2.5L engine is also known to be sturdier than the 4-cylinder. However, common issues like ignition problems and worn suspension parts can pop up. Finding parts in Spain might be trickier compared to the US, especially as the mileage climbs. If the Probe is well-maintained and you’re okay with potentially searching online for parts, it could be a fun choice.

In the early 2000s, I owned a 1994 GT, which was an excellent vehicle that was dependable and enjoyable to drive. The car was ten years old when I bought it, and I drove it for four years without any significant issues. I remember replacing the water pump, the rear wheel hubs, and the brakes, but that’s about all the maintenance I performed on it. The car had 180 thousand when I sold it back in 2008. Under the surface, though, it’s all Mazda, so parts are more expensive and repair services will cost more. When I purchased my automobile, I had a cat-back installed, which cost $350 despite the fact that it was just pipe and a muffler, the same as everything else, and aluminum was also utilized.

Haris You raise an excellent point on how crucial good upkeep is. It is true that a well-maintained Probe can continue to function flawlessly. Any vehicle’s durability and dependability are largely dependent on regular maintenance.

Do you have any special advice or insights from maintaining the best possible condition for your vehicle?
