I agree.

I have nothing at all against that kind of siding, but it is not "top end" stuff, and no matter what the OP does, it's only going to be about so good.

Scrape it well, get all the loose stuff off, prime it, paint it, and call it good.

It's worth repainting, that will clean things up nicely. You just don't need to grind off every last flake of old paint to prepare for paint.
