Question

What would be your biggest drawback about the Probe?


Mine would have to be :

lack of aftermarket support.

That is the biggest drawback for me as well. Also the parts, Ford will charge you a arm and a leg for them. Good thing Mazda is still making the 626, I go there for cheaper parts.Example wheel hub at Ford $280.00 at Mazda $67.00.

Has to be thet it isn't in production anymore. And like what was mentioned before...prices on repair parts. It is a good thing the aftermarket is slowly catching up.

I want new floormats!!

It's insane, but it's true. Every time something mechanical breaks. I don't call Ford I call Mazda. Check this out 1 chrome swirl wheel from Ford for a 96-97PGT $748.00 a peice. Now thats just plain crazy.

Have you checked out a junk yard. I got a pair out of a 95PGT and all it cost me was $5.00 for both.
