1989 Peugeot 205 XRD 1.9 diesel


I sold it with tears in my eyes


Only minor fixing required.

The things worth mentioning are:

- anti-corrosion painting.

- often shocks exchanges (because of bad roads in Poland)

- at about 210 000 km final exhaust was replaced for non-original ($70)

General Comments:

I gotta say - a little car worth every penny!

Amazingly cheap to maintain:

Fuel consumption: 5,5 l/100 km (43 miles/gal) no mater city or highway.

Nothing, but fuel and other liquids were necessary.

Small repairs done in non-dealer garages.


- poor acceleration (16 s. to 100 km (62 miles) /h

- not very comfortable (but pretty fair)

- definitely not a sporty car

- small malfunctions

- small boot (but after setting seats down I brought a mid-size fridge on board)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
