1994 Peugeot 106 XSi 1.4i from UK and Ireland


Overall a brill little car which is grate fun to drive


Only just got the car so nothing big yet, tried to get at the door speakers, but the screw heads were worn (how do you get them out?).

One slight rip in the drivers seat.

General Comments:

Great little car, not too insurance heavy and fairly economical if you can keep your right foot light.

The car goes well particularly above 4,000 rpm because it's a small engine (1.4) the lack of torque lower down the revs is felt.

Handles like a beast, the steering is perfectly balanced once moving and tracks with ease through bends.

The interior has aged well and is virtually immaculate.

The only concern I have is how loud it is, it only has a standard exhaust and a GREEN air filter, but still roars and pops etc? is this a problem or do all XSi's do this?

Slightly rough idle, but most do.

1994 Peugeot 106 Mardi Gras 1.0 from UK and Ireland


A sound, reliable car for the younger motorist


The catalytic converter needed to be replaced after 65000 miles, but renewal of the rest of the exhaust system was unnecessary.

The car is very reliable and the repair was relatively inexpensive to repair.

General Comments:

This car is somewhat overlooked when compared to the run-of-the-mill super-minis of today.

Despite its size, it is still a fully-fledged car and has a great deal to offer.

The controls are very responsive and pleasant to use.

The car has a good acceleration.

The engine size limits you to 4 gears and the trim option leaves you with body-keyed bumpers, but no power-steering.

I think that this is a great car for the younger motorist and prices aren't too bad either!

1994 Peugeot 106 XR 1.4 from Denmark


Downtown race car


New clutch at 90,000 km.

Brake pads wear quickly. (could be my driving;-) Changed 5 times.

General Comments:

Nice go-cart;-) Really entertaining handling. You can throw it around corners wery precise, while enjoying the lively rear-end.

The cabin however, is not very well done. It makes a lot of noise from the dashboard and trunk. And it's ugly:-)

The gearshift is poor. It's loud and inprecise.

The engine is superb. Though it only has 75 hp, it still sufficient for some quick acceleration in such a light car. When you reach 120 km/t however, there isn't much left in it...

Fuel economy is OK. It runs about 14 km/l.

1994 Peugeot 106 Rallye 1.3 petrol from UK and Ireland


Beast of the B-Roads!


Rocker Cover Gasket has split, and is loosing a small amount of oil.

Also breather pipe from Rocker Cover is slightly loose.

Total repair cost for both approx £25.

General Comments:

What a little 'Pocket Rocket'!! I knew the ides was they were meant to be quick, because they are stripped out, but this is as fast as my old XR2i from the lights.

Looks fantastic, and handles like a dream.

Plus - I could have kissed the girl in the Post Office when I only had to fork out £57 for the Road Tax - All my other cars have cost £88 for 6 months, and this one is quicker than most of them!!!

Only complaint would be high revs above 70mph. It's not really a Motorway car, but it will eat most cars for Breakfast, Lunch, and Supper on a B-Road!

A Nippy Fly-MO


New battery and starter motor at 40,000 miles.

New trim over front wheel. Note, dealer unaware that they existed, hence dealer comments. Also £100 for a piece of plastic.

General Comments:

A roadworthy Go-Kart.

Nice look on prestigious car drivers as you fly past them on major roads.

Even better look when hammering down twisty lanes.

Why do people panic when having a nose at the rev counter.

Am now fully aware of the lift-off oversteer with a couple of close shaves with inside kerb.

Slight problems. Am I the only one with an ashtray that doesn't want to stay where it should. I know they wanted to keep the weight down, but having an ashtray and not having a cigarette lighter seems a bit odd.

Disappointed when finding out colour code. Red. Hot or flame. No. The official colour is cherry, sickening.

The cherry red on Peugeot is driving me crazy!!!

It is so hot, I love it! M-m-m-m, only thinking about it... Unfortunately, today I had just bought a black 106,year 1995, did not really have time to hunt around... Will share my comments soon, but really enjoyed the test drive. A definite improvement from my old and unfortunate Opel Corsa'87.Someone crashed me badly last week...
