Hi There,
Scorpio is a good option if looking out something is Diesel varient. No ,if it is maintained properly it should not be much of a problem .....but do remember to atleast switch your engine on once in 2 days in idle position (it is required for all diesel vehicles). The maintanance cost totally depends upon ur usage and handling. Follow the rules properly and there shouldnt be much of a burden on your pocket.
A Normal average cost would require a regular Oil Change, Filter Change, regular Brake checks & Steering assembly check which should not be more than 4-5K
