I bought the 92 base model in may of 2010 for $800 with only 78k miles. good shape inside and out and the engine clean as a engine can be. the top was bad but found one on ebay really cheap so it looks good. I've put over 23k miles on the car in less then a year and only thing I had to do was replace the fuel pump but it was my fault it went out. and a wheel bearing. for only 100hp the tranny is geared out to have decent pick up for it. really smooth running 70mph on I95 with the top down you can bearly tell your in a convertible.

I bought the Capri on a whim in AZ. I decided to sell it before I left the state. I have been East 6 months and refused to buy a car. My friends and I could not figure it out. I finally did. This am I was looking at cars and put in Capri. I found the exact duplicate. I am walking out the door with cash in hand. Does that say it all?

3 years ago I bought a blue 1992 XR2, just like the picture. It was really about the mileage since our other cars were 2 Ford Expeditions which only got 9 mpg on a good day. Well what a surprise that little car turned out to be. Although it had 78,000 miles on the odometer, it still started and ran like a top. The 5 speed tranny is still tight and the acceleration after driving that land barge was nothing short of breathtaking. I swapped out the old 15" wheels for some new "A.R" 16" wheels and put on some 225X 60 series tires and what a difference. The thing just hugs the road in a bear grip and will not let go even though I really push it.I found a hard top and its all set.

We have owned this car for almost 11
years. The quality has been superb. No
major repairs and minor maintenance.
The only problem has been finding the
small cosmetic parts. Engine parts
have been no problem through the dealer.
Definitely a keeper. Still looks and
runs like new.

My wife and I purchased the vehicle new
in 1992. She often drove it to work
and once we drove the vehicle as far as
N. Carolina for a brief vacation. We
never had a major problem with the
vehicle. We had minor problem with the
convertible top which in the down
position, caused a small tear on each
side of the top where the metal rubbed
against the convertible top. Still
runs and looks great.

I bought my capri in Feb. of 99, this
car was in such poor shape though it
had only 64,000mi I took that car and
fixed it up nice. The main complaint
that I have for these cars is that the
parts are hard to find and are
expensive. Though in the four years
that I have owned this vihicle it has
open many doors into the auto tech
industry, I use the car as a example of
the work that I do and now the car has
115,500 miles on it and runs like new,
but still needs some repairs such as
tie rod ends and lower control arm
