Faults:

The power steering fluid leaked when the car was about 3 months old. It was sent back to the service centre for repair and is now alright.

Paint work is weak, it comes off easily.

Some idiot actually personalised my car with his name on it - with a light scratch! (not the car's fault)

General Comments:

Pick up speed is slow.

Generally good things come in small packages, and the 206 is one of them.

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

Right about the pickup being slow - I test drove a 1.4 before buying and decided to go for the 1.6 instead.

When I test drove the peugeot 206 1.4, it was alright. The pick up speed was not that bad as one had imagined it to be. It was rather small though - the compartments esp. But the low price kind of made it all up for a continental car, I guess. No more Japanese cars or Korean cars for me... not used to it.
