1995 Ford Scorpio Ultima 2.9i 12v
Phenomenal. Mind blowing
Rear Brake Discs replaced as pads had not been replaced by previous owner.
Apart from that, just routine service items.
I understand that certain Scorpio Ultima owners find lots of electrical faults. My advice is don't go fiddling with the OBD system, as you will create and then 'find' problems which probably aren't there in the first place.
Just drive the car!! Service it regularly, and enjoy.
This has to be the most luxurious car on the road.
It gets admiring glances wherever I go.
When it was first introduced the styling was considered weird, but now, in 2006 it fits in very well indeed.
Where else can you buy a £33.000 car for under £1000.
The car has every conceivable extra with self dimming interior mirror, A/C, wing mirror dip on reverse, electric heated seats with memory positioning, floorwell lighting and under door lighting to illuminate the pavement.
Interior is the most comfortable and impressive I have ever seen. Incredible!! Go get one"!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

How does the Scorpio compare to the Volvo 940?

I think that you will find both cars very different. The Ford will have more toys and be cheaper to run, but the Volvo will be MUCH more solid and safe - also likely to last longer. YOu should really compare the bigger engined Scorpio with the Volvo 960 rather than 940 (960 is plusher with bigger engine and sleeker design). The Volvo is square in appearance, but the Ford is more 'unique' - not everyone will like the look of either. To sum up, if you want a keeper, or safety is of concern, buy the Volvo. If you want a lot of metal or gadgets for your money for the short term, buy the Ford.

I've had both the Volvo 940, and the Volvo 960.
Buy the 940. The 960 has nothing going for it that the 940 won't do. As for interiors, the Ford is AWESOME, and the Volvo 'plastics' are just outdated.
I'd have another Volvo as they are hard wearing, and as tow cars, they rule, but for a comfortable ride, this car has to be the best buy I've ever made.
