Summary:

Good workhorse kind for your wallet

Faults:

Nothing serious.

The CD charger began of Philips origin began to miss-function three years from new.

General Comments:

Trimming of dubious quality and obviously showing a design of the car in the early 90s.

Peugeot servicing overfilling not able to fill the proper quantity of oil in the engine. This could have resulted in destroying the engine.

Apart from that, living in Paris I appreciate that the car is easy to park as it is no longer than a Ford mondeo or a Citroen Xantia.

The car is quite comfortable and the boot cavernous.

On average the consumption is quite low. I return 6.5 l/100km (36 mpg,including some motorway at 130 km/h (80 mph) which is a good surprise for a car that size.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
