Summary:

Frances answer to Jaguar!

Faults:

Nothing really.

I had to change the exhaust, but that is normal. Quite expensive, but you have to regard that this is also a high end car. Had new tyres fit PIRELLI P6! Best tyres for any car and balancing (can only be done at Peugeot) stopped the vibrations. The heat in the seats has stopped working, but that is typical for both Peugeot and Citroen (same parts).

General Comments:

The car gives you a feeling of safety and agility on the road. With its weight of 1500 kg it is really a cruiser! The model came with leather seats that are really comfy. The cabin is very spacious and there is plenty of legroom in the backseat. The engine is a 2.0 which is fairly small for a car this size, but will still give you sufficient power for fast maneuvers and overtaking. This is a great car which is heavily underestimated. Plus that it is also ridiculously cheap in all countries compared to other cars! I have had no problems with reliability! No breakdowns. Get one if you can!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Good-looking executive drive

Faults:

The light is gone in the clock/temperature display. Probably just needs some contact cleaner!

I've had the handbrake tightened.

General Comments:

This is my second Peugeot, and I have just bought a third, this time a 505 V6.

I find the reliability well above reputation. Have not had serious problems with my Peugeots.

The 605 is a great looking car, with plenty of interior space.

Fairly priced, a lot of car for the money.

Handles superbly, and is very comfortable on the long stretches.
