1992 Peugeot 405 GRDT 1.9 turbo diesel
Nice family car with small faults
Clutch - juddering.
Cylinder head gone - internal corrosion.
Wheel bearings at the front several times.
Rear axle: swing arm-bearings.
Cooling system: several leaks and a new radiator.
Fire in the engine bay due to an improperly laid wiring loom - construction/factory fault.
Front discs have short life, no matter whether original or aftermarket parts used.
Comfortable, roomy, quiet. Very good roadholding; overall fuel consumption 7,2 litres per 100km.
Went absolutely trouble-free until it reached 170000km.
Sadly dealers often not state-of-the-art. Better repair it at home with the aid of a Haynes manual and some friends :-)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
