Ford got one thing right. They circled their mistake...
It would have to be a GT, the v6 never came in any car but the GT trim. As I said, the auto trans is garbage, I'll agree with you there, but Probes get a pretty undeserved bad rep from a lot of people. A GT is about as quick (stock) as a GSR, granted not lightning quick, but they got a little nuts. And the 4cyl's while efficient, easier to work on, and cheaper, are gutless.like i said my boy had a older probe, auto trans, v6 but not gt. and it sucked, his dad had the same, but in manual. ran better but still slow as shit. i have only heard of problems comin from them, but every car is different
The 4 is the mx-6 engine, the 6 isn't. I talked to my engines teacher today about the car, he said they aren't bad little cars and shit can go wrong like any other car, but he never saw repetitive problems with Probes specifically and he was a mechanic for 25+yrs. So it doesn't seem like a bad car to me so far. Open to all opinions though =D
p.s. According to my teacher the older Probes actually had 2 bolts to hold on a Ford emblem on the head, and under it was Mazda xD
