1985 Peugeot 309 L 1.3 petrol
A faithful old bucket!
Arm broke off wind screen wiper switch.
The car was given to me in desperate times, (demise of previous vehicle in accident), and had already gone to seed...
Although it sounded like a tin of nails in a spin dryer, to be fair, given the age the engine was fairly responsive, however, sharp corners were not for the feint hearted as it rolled like a drunk.
Most of the interior had various bits broken off. Mainly switches and handles, which was a shame, as the few accessories on this basic car still worked if you had patience and a pair of pliers!
The upholstery was mainly on the floor.
It was a brief affair and the car was there for me when I needed it. In our six month relationship it never let me down... at least when I realised the choke wasn't automatic.
Having previously owned a Renault 25TXE, it was pure culture shock and unfair to blame the car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
