Makes a difference _which_ Ford Probes are doing this!
I know my '89 Probe GT (stock) should have no trouble (0-60) against _any_
stock Audi A4 or A6 (1.8, turbo, 2.6...) So, your problem _could_ be
"normal". What can you do for this? Well, why not buy my 50K mile '89
Probe GT? That's a solution that fits well with _my_ priorities at the
moment. You might even have enough left over for a nice S4. ;-)
BTW, you wouldn't even need to leave Rochester to buy my ol' Fordzda. :)
