First thing I did was peel off the "Mardi Gras" stickers, they came off quite easily. This was my first car and presented good, stylish looks with economical and reasonably nippy driving.
Peugeot make the best diesel engines on the market; the 1.5 has much better performance than my friends' 1.4 and represents great power for the economy - about 50 miles to the gallon. One other thing to look for is colour-coded bumpers, they improve the looks no end!
There's enough room in the back - although it's not for 6ft giants, the boot is big enough and the front seats are spacious.
Disadvantages? Power steering would have been nice, the five door model would be more spacious in the back, the ride can be bumpy when on un-level roads and it's a bit noisy on cold mornings! But you forget them over the advantages.
Overall, the car offers economical and reasonably quick motoring within a stylish and comfortable chassis. Will definitely buy another Peugeot in the future - probably a 306DT.
