1990 Ford Scorpio Ghia 2.9 V6
Affordable luxury car
I have had some problems with the alarm. The System had to be replaced.
The load adjusting system at the rear axle was broke. Had to replace the compressor and the rear shock breakers. The handling of the car really improved.
The rubbers of the front stabilizing rod.
The car its luxury and comfort is incredibly good compared to the costs of purchase. I bought mine for only 1000 Euro. The previous owner was a Ford mechanic. The car has always been maintained properly so it was in a very good condition.
It is a real speedway car. The cornering is not very good. With only 145 brake horse power for a 2,9 liter V6 the acceleration is not thrilling, but it will do about 210 kilometers per hour.
The car has got all the accessories you should expect on a car of a recent make. It has even got an electric adjustment of the rear seats (left and right separated). Be sure to buy a Ghia for the same price as a cheaper model.
The maintenance is affordable. The only expensive thing was the replacement of gearbox oil.
The only large expenses of the car is its fuel consumption. The V6 is not very economical with its juice. Especially with the Dutch fuel prices.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
