1993 Peugeot 106 XN 3 Door 1.1 petrol from UK and Ireland
Fantastically reliable, cheap and easy to use
Radio cassette not working consistently.
Compact dimensions are excellent in town for parking and manoeuvrability.
Even though its small in size outside, the inside is fairly roomy.
Responsive engine on motorways.
However engine noise above 70 is harsh and loud.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

For an update...
My car flew through its annual health check with replacement front brake pads, however 4000 miles later they are wearing thin again. Other quips is the timing keeps moving out of time, thus leading to unreliable cold starts and increased fuel consumption. Other problems arising are a leaking interior light (The seal on the radio antennae have eroded to air) and loosening handbrake cable, now have plenty of travel in the handbrake, regardless of new brake shoes, cable's and adjustment of the cable. I found both headlights went at around 114,000 miles. One got replaced so the other decided to die, and I resolved the stereo issue. I purchased a JVC CD Player. Thus erasing the intermittent radio. The car is still reliable and travels at good speeds comfortably.
