1994 Peugeot 405 T16 2.0 turbo


Fast, fun and discreet


Transmission failed, had to get new from Peugeot for £1300.

General Comments:

The car is very quick, and the handling is excellent. The car is tuned, from the original 200 horsepowers to around 300. I still haven't lost a race to anything or anyone, except a Ferrari once, but the price is a bit higher for that one.

The mileage per gallon is great, considering the power the engine gives.

The car is perfect for the family man who wants both speed and room for the wife's shopping.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1989 Peugeot 405 SRi


A nice design, comfort and OK performance


Needed to change the rear brake calipers and discs several times.

Ventilation fan worked badly.

Left side mirror broke down.

Coolant leak.

Costly engine repair at 120,000 km to keep exhaust values legal, vents were leaking.

Starter broke down at 180,000 km.

General Comments:

Very comfortable on long journeys.

Low fuel consumtion.

Good to drive.

Excellent on the road.

A little too noisy to have a conversation without yelling to each other.

Nice Pininfarina design.

I have a 405 SRi and have not had any of these brake problems and none are in the log book.

The exhaust is not that loud, with the stereo on it is difficult to hear the engine so I find myself working off the tacho a lot.

Mine is 146000KM old and still goes very well.

I've had my 405 for 12 months, fabulous drive both in the country & city, super comfy, looks nothing out of the ordinary but is so reliable, love all the well designed extras, often gets 780km from one tank, really comfy, this is my fifth pug and I just love 'em. Used to be able to take the exhaust valves off the old 504 when necessary, those days have gone, but what the heck, haven't got as much time to fiddle anymore anyway! Long live the Peugeot!

I do love 405 Sri machines. The car is very comfortable in long travels and behaves perfectly in any situation. The only problem I have encountered with my 405 Sri was also ventilation. I have also noted a little bit less power as it ages..
