1992 Ford Sierra Ghia 2.0i DOHC from UK and Ireland


I wish they still made this car!


Head gasket blew about 1yr after I got the car. Seems to be OK after I fitted a genuine Ford gasket (don't fit a motor factors one)

Alternator died.

Rear outer mounts rusted through on front seats (in 04).

Rear Shocks replaced.

Crank sensor died.

General Comments:

Even though I have a cat model it had very good fuel economy,about 34MPG with urban & 'A' road driving.

Performance was very good too with plenty of low speed torque allowing it to pull 5th gear from as low as 45mph! (1300 RPM).Runs out of power over 5500 RPM, but otherwise is quick.

Very well equipped car even by modern standards. It has air con, PAS, ABS, all e/win, front & rear heated screens, e/sunroof.All round disc brakes.

Love the rear wheel drive, far better grip in the wet & dry than FWD, though not in snow!

Only reason it's going is because it has been rear ended & is a write off : (

Wolf in comfy sheep's clothing


The only thing that has gone wrong with the car, apart from service items, is that a rear caliper seized.

A £10 job to fix.

General Comments:

This car is very comfy.

It will beat a lot of modern cars off the lights and is surprisingly quick.

Very easy to maintain and drive.

My 3rd Sierra Ghia, all of which have been A1.

A good all round work horse


Only thing that ever went wrong was the clutch cable snapped. Which the AA fixed by the road side in minute's.

General Comments:

This is my second sierra, and I love them. Bought mine off a police woman who had owned it from new. Was still in showroon condition when I purchased it. Always starts first time. Very fast for what is it. Parts are ten a penny. Easy to service yourself. Give them good oil and they should run forever. Would certainly have another one. Cheap cheerfull and fun in the wet.

1992 Ford Sierra Sapphire GLSi 2.0i from UK and Ireland


Comfortable family car with great handling and good power


Fan switch blew the second I got the car, although might have been dead before I bought the car.

Whistling/hissing noise from rear end, probably a small exhaust leak.

Other than this, it's in mint condition and runs great.

General Comments:

2.0i Twin Cam engine responds the second you put your foot down.

Handling is brilliant. Tight roundabouts can be taken fast without a hint of slide from the car (in the dry at least)

RWD means wet roundabouts and bends become much more fun!

Pulls well even with 5 people in the car.

Destroys all the boy racers in their crappy Nova's and such at the lights.

Very comfortable seats and lots of cabin space.

All round disc brakes, ABS and power steering gives you good control.

Embarrasses a fair amount of modern machinery.

A very smooth car to drive. Comfortable and spacious yet can become a fun machine when you want it.

1992 Ford Sierra LX 1.8 from UK and Ireland


Good motorway cruisng car


Tracking went (probably due to the roads than the car).

Central locking won't unlock on the passenger side.

Had a full engine rebuild after 142,000 miles after it blew and emptied all its oil over a police car - nice!!

General Comments:

After the engine rebuild, the car is great to drive, plenty of torque and handles really well for a barge on its original springs and dampers. A good set of tyres and it corners better than my friend's xr2!

Only got it cause it's rear wheel drive, but I fell in love with it and I'm after a 2.0 GLSi now.

Neat car and worth the 450 quid I paid for it :)


No major problems till now - Had the car for one month.

Car broke down twice in one day. (Got to get the most out of my breakdown cover.)

Engine would restart when WD40 (or whatever) was sprayed onto the carb. The guy who came out suggested that the fuel pump is most likely gone and needs replacing.

General Comments:

The car is otherwise excellent. Slight rust on one of the doors which is no major problem.

All the hoses seem to have been replaced in the engine bay recently. Ran like a dream... until now.

Inside the car is immaculate. Even the recovery guy mentioned the car was "smart and tidy"
