Re: NEED HELP!! on choosing my car!
You'll need to check the service history for both. The engine is sensitive to oil changes & types of oil; always synthetics for us. Timing belts need to have been done at approx 120,000km. Clutches at 150,000km are typical.
It's great they haven't been in a accident but the usual vehicle check apply for rust & wear.
A tow bar on a Probe has never sat well with me & we owned a 1997 until last year. Gear changes need to be checked for positive movement and grinding.
Brake callipers seizing at the rear are common but mechanic parts are interchangeable with MX6, 626 & Telstar.
