1992 Peugeot 309 GLX 1.4


Comfortable car for little money


The left rear brake lost some power at 200000 km. After cleaning it, the full function was restored.

New battery at 210000km.

General Comments:

This car is cheap to purchase and to own.

The weight is low (+/- 800 kg) which makes it cheap for taxes. The petrol use is nice (14 km/l)

The bodywork looks it has been designed for grandfather and -mother, but you're inside the car.

It's a really huge car. My bike fits the car with all doors closed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1986 Peugeot 309 XE 1.3


A practical and underrated car


Not much. A girling brake caliper locked after replacing the pads.

Front wheel bearings are due for replacement.

The engine leaks some oil, but nothing to worry about: it's caused by bad engine sealings.

General Comments:

If maintained properly, even at this age the car is very reliable and economical to run.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
