1988 Ford Scorpio 2.9v6


Luxurious motoring at a bargain basement price


Starter motor packed up at about 113000 miles.

Some things don't work IE: electric rear seats, rear windows, and heated screens.

I can live with that, they are no problem.

General Comments:

Extremely quick, I also have a sports car about the same age as the Scorpio, and the 0-60 time is only about a second better.

With the cruise control, it's the nearest I've felt to being a passenger in a car when I've been sat behind the wheel.

On a run, it will do 30mpg+, I am averaging 31-33mpg on a daily 110mile commute.

Extremely comfortable seats.

First car I've owned with an auto box, but very happy with it.

For a little over £100 it was a definite bargain, has already paid for itself.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
