1 out of 5 stars

For It's hard to find a cheaper comfy big cruiser

Against It's hard to find an uglier big cruiser

Verdict It's a cheap, cushy barge that's nice to be in

Go for… 2.9 V6

Avoid… 2.5 TD

  • 1. There's masses of room for five - some Scorpios even have adjustable rear seats
  • 2. Unless there's a full service history backed up by MoT certificates, you can't be sure the mileage is genuine
  • 3. Look for rust around the rear wheelarches, sills and front floorpan
  • 4. When you take a test drive, pay close attention to the condition of the gearbox, especially if it's an automatic
  • 5. Be sure to check out the brakes and suspension, which can both cause problems
