Summary:

A high performance bargain.. you get more than what you paid for

Faults:

The back-doors creak.

Right mirror was damaged, but replaced.

Gas dial/system needed to be reset (software reprogrammed)

General Comments:

First time with a Peugeot... and very satisfied.

This car surpasses the performance of my previous Honda Hatch Back. It is more roomy than expected for a mid-size compact. Faster, more fun to drive, great response.

I fit my 3 kids plus wife plus gear and go to the beach with no issues.

Local dealer service is very good, great customer orientation.

Only issue has been with several body sounds (back doors) but with the bad quality of the roads in Costa Rica, the car has sustained it's reliability with no issues.

I'm just waiting for a couple of more years to change it for a 2.0 Gasoline full extras Xsi

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
