Summary:

Do not make the same mistake, get Japanese or German

Faults:

Everything went wrong, the gearbox had issues, the computer system as well, sensors... I bought the car for $7600 and spent $3500 on repairs in 11 months.

General Comments:

It's a good looking car, but rotten from the inside.

Even though this car isn't new, but everyone who gets a Peugeot 206, especially the automatic transmission ones, suffers big time. Let alone the spare parts being low in quality and high in price.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I'm sorry but you have a 206 RX or RC, cause there is a big difference.. I'm just wondering if you're mistaken between the RC and the XR?

Summary:

A wonderful driver's car

Faults:

The clutch vibrates when starting from a standstill, this is very annoying in heavy traffic.

Gear changes are not smooth, I feel the clutch grinding, especially when changing from 4th to 3rd.

General Comments:

This car has lots of power and I enjoy driving it a lot.

It's handling is very good and very predictive and graduate.

The ride is fairly comfortable for a sports car, however, noise is a bit high when cruising on a highway.

The rims are exposed, when parking near a sidewalk, they get scratched easily.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
