1992 Peugeot 106 XSi 1.4
Sweet but expired chocolate
At 210000km fuel pump wiring had corrosion
At 210000km I changed steering gear
At 230000km I changed front trailing arms
At 235000km I changed electronic ignition coil module.
I bought this car in November 2006, third hand for only 900 euros (700 pounds).
Although in bad body condition, it's a very fun to drive car, it has good handling, and it is a very well balanced car between the two axles.
Mine has rear disk brakes from a Peugeot 106 1.6 16v, and a 24mm in tube torsion bar, with front coil springs and front/rear shock absorbers from a 106 1.6 16v.
The engine lacks torque at low rpm (1000-4000), but at higher revs it runs good.
It travels smooth up to 110miles/hour, but after that you must be very patient.
For its time this car was a little bomb, but today it's just a slow car.
I like it a lot, and I believe that when you buy a third hand Peugeot car with 200000km, you must expect reliability problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
