1991 Peugeot 309 GL 1.6
This car is a hoot for no money. The GTI must be a peach
A few issues with jamming front calipers. Otherwise faultless.
Although it looks like grandmas shopping car, I have found this car to be very reliable and comfortable.
Motorway speeds can be held all day without too much strain. 400 mile non stops are a regular occurrence, and she ticks over beautifully at the end.
I have been very surprised by this car, which is why I have kept her for so long. I can even shock the boy racers in the twisty stuff, such is the feedback from the chassis. The car is softly sprung like all the French stuff, but when the body roll reaches the end, the grip is tenacious. It is worth spending the extra money on good tyres however
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
