Summary:

Sweet but expired chocolate

Faults:

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.

General Comments:

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

Summary:

Street Racer

Faults:

Instrument panel has been replaced twice (fuel gauge was and is not working properly).

Various warning lights flash once in a while, but no problem is present.

General Comments:

Beautiful exterior, boring though ergonomic interior. The build quality of the interior could be better, but who cares...

Amazingly sharp handling, but that can prove dangerous... It has the handling characteristics of a race-car. Respect it or it will kill you...

Excellent brakes.

Precise and quick steering.

Powerful engine (mine is the late 127HP version). Fuel consumption is low, considering the performance (about 11lt/100km).

Not comfortable, because of stiff suspension and little soundproofing. Don't buy it for everyday use.

Summary:

Pure enjoyment

Faults:

Had to fix quite a few things (broken radiator, clutch, catalyst and camshaft belt).

General Comments:

Designed & built for twisted country roads, very noisy (but fast) on motorways, needs an extra gear.

Do not tamper with the suspension (mine had Billsteins, awful in bumpy roads).

Great motor, can catch up most hyped cars.

Have to know how to handle on slippery bends and turns: Oversteer it at the entry of the turn, accelerate right after - pure thrill :))) *Never* brake hard inside turns, without fast hands you're in for a 180 spin.

Very stylish, great looks = ladies love it. Too bad that it did not come with power steering and A/C. My next car is an 106 GTi.

Summary:

Value and pleasure!

Faults:

Engine mounts.

Gearbox mount.

Flywheel.

Clutch.

General Comments:

The best handling car in the category. You really learn sports driving with it. Does not forgive mistakes.

Spartan but with a pure racing car feeling. Destined for road rallies. Can be described as a baby kit-car.

Could use better brakes.
