1994 Peugeot 106 XND Graduate 1.4 from UK and Ireland
A fantastic little car, reliability is excellent, as is economy
Front pipe of exhaust broke off at 103000 miles
One of the most reliable cars I have owned.
Never failed to start, whatever the weather.
So economical, I would definitely buy another one.
For a cheap little car it has a more expensive feel about it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a Peugeot 106 XND Graduate and it's great. I bought it 2nd hand at roughly 65000 on the clock, I think. I'm about 75000 now and I've only had the few normal problems. I've replaced the exhaust, the alternator, the clutch fork and the rear windscreen heater doesn't work anymore. You may think that all this sounds like a bit of a hassle and at first I thought so, but when you think about how fuel economic this car is, how cheap insurance is and how much space is inside, nothing else really matters. Cars get old, but this one just keeps going. I would definitely buy this again and have an unrelated comment to now add: The daihatsu Cuore is rubbish!! That's me, David. :-)

I owned a 1.4 diesel version of this and I have to say it was bullet proof! Once the breather pipe got blocked which resulted in all the oil getting forced out of the gaskets, and unfortunately I didn't realize I was driving around with 4 passengers giving the engine a lot of stick for several hours wondering why it had become very slow! There was no visible engine damage at all, I drove it for another 10,000 miles after that with no consequences!
I also had to replace the alternator and had the clutch fork welded must be common on these. Other than that is does have quite appalling electrics, but with a bit of patience anyone could sort that out.
Overall a very good first car though reliable amazingly economical and doesn't suffer from the metal moth like most small cars tend to!
