Best Car I've Had, Thinking Of Moving Back To The Uk And I Will Seek Out A Rhd Scorpio. — Performance is lame but I have got the 2.0 and for such a large combi its a bit underpowered. I think the build quality is pretty good, Ford garages are expensive to go to but their is a very good website specifically for scorpio owners so I never visit Ford but do the work myself. I like the big headlights at the front, theyre no bloody good as lights but it doesnt look like a nissan, toyota..... they all look the same nowadays. I like character. Being a car that is now 13years old there are repairs to be done but their are plenty of parts as alot of owners have given up on the scorpio as very few garages now how to fix them. The Scorpio wasnt produced in large numbers (new shape). The car does not perform well in terms of fun factor but if you like a car with space and leg room and luggage capacity this car pisses all over a volvo.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Because you need a big car and who wants to look like a clone in a volvo.

Cons: If you don't want to work on the car yourself then dont buy one.

Big — This is actually a Cosworth 2,9 24v V6. There have been a few problems. The brakes are great but i have been forced to change calipers, pads, disks and handbrakewire in less then a year. The cooler is huge and hugely expensive. Great engine, great noise.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The engine

Cons: Rust

Fords Ugly Duckling — Its a bit ugly but not many cars picked up for £100 quid will sit all day on cruise control at 90mph doing nearly 30mpg. Its also got every gizmo & gadget you could think of, and they all still work! including duel zone climate control which can freeze the nuts off a monkey! Nobody can understand what i see in it but i love it. Oh and in the wet it wil go everywhere sideways, which is a real bonus!

Pros: Big, Comfy, cheap & good stereo. Goes ok when u get hang of Auto box

Cons: Aestheticaly Challenged,
