Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Ford Scorpio saloon?

Buy on condition, rather than mileage. It's an old car now, and Scorpios used to be a target for clockers - crooks who wind back the mileage reading to make a profit - so unless there's a full service record backed by every MoT certificate, the mileage may not be genuine.

A stack of past bills is a good sign - better than stamps in a service book, which don't tell you what work has been done. Parts wear out on any 10-year-old car, so look for evidence of replacements and maintenance.
