2001 Peugeot 306


I would think twice before buying Peugeot again


Head gasket blew up at 80000 KMS. The overheating that resulted has damaged the cylinders and valves. The car required a complete overhaul, which costs around 1500 USD.

Manual gear performance very poor and not accurate. Needs frequent change and adjustment of clutch disk.

Ball bearings and belts for A/C compressor and dynamo requires change at 60000 kms.

Bad noise results from the gears when reversing.

General Comments:

Good performer, especially in hilly roads.

A/C is not effective at an elevated ambient temperature around 40 Deg. C.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Minor things in electricity and drums at 80000Km.

General Comments:

Lovely car in each and every detail that I don't think of selling. And if I sell it, I'll get a new 307.
