I stress this very much...Stay away from a probe. They are horrible. They can be fast, and run well, until you take it to the track, you will spend more time rebuilding some part of than actually driving it. If you are looking for a newer car then get another focus, or keep yours and mod it! Or buy a new one for daily driving and mod yours....but stay away from probes!!!

I owned a 94 Probe GT. They are nice when they are not falling apart but that is not too often. So I agree with chaneyzx3'04, they are junk. How about a Focus SVT? Lets not start a whole thread on which Focus is better I am just saying I got my 02 SVT with 11K miles on it for $13K with warranty on it till 36K (I have 26K now) I just don't think that you can get a better car for that money(everything except HID's which were not offered that year and neither was the EAP, but I have everything that was offered). Just my opinion but those come a dime a dozen.

yea my friend has a probe and well they are not very nice at all, and you will miss the comfort of the focus too, probes are very cramped inside. his seems to run fine and it has like 120k miles on it, but i would say just stick with the focus.
