1989 Peugeot 205 GL 1.0L petrol
My first car!
A little oil leak.
Some electrical problems.
The idle needs to be set very often.
Nothing serious for a 15 years old car.
With only 45 hp, Don't expect Gti acceleration, but the handling is fun, and it brakes quite well.
The maximum speed I have ever read on the speedometer was 155 km/h, (95 mph), by a windy morning ;), and the maximum cruising speed is around 120 km/h (75 mph). But, with four people in the car and some luggage, this car isn't fun to drive anymore!
The seats are comfortable, and still in excellent condition, so is the dashboard.
This car is quite silent, and nervous enough, when you drive under 55 km/h (35 mph), the engine becomes very noisy and require being careful before overtaking, because of its limited power, above 100 km/h (60 mph).
The engine uses unleaded petrol and this car is really economic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
