I have had my 106 since October and its due it's next MOT after Xmas. Since buying the car I have noticed an over active ticking coming from the glove box which turned out to be the repeater fuse. (Its 9 years old after all!) Having cleaned it and not replaced it, so far its been running fine :)
The standard tape/radio was pants.
I took it into my local Peugeot dealer this weekend having found out that the brake lights weren't working. The brake pedal switch had died and its going to be cheap to replace. They even topped up my brake fluid and I'm due to pick it up tonight :)
Other than that, nothing has gone wrong.
I love this car. Being my first motor it's naturally my pride and joy. I learnt to drive in a 2005 1.4 HDI 206 so I was expecting this car to be roughly the same in speed if not a little less (not being the new HDI engine)
However I was pleased to find it more responsive than the 206 and it still handles excellently even without power steering.
I was worried before test driving this car because many reviews and mats who have owned 106's in the past have said tht they are very small inside and the pedals are too close together, meaning that you push both the brake & accelerator together. Not a bit of it. I'm 6ft2" and I have size 11 feet. I've never had trouble with it. I even find it more comfortable than the 206 I learnt in!
I've added a £160 head unit had links up my mp3 player directly and I was surprised to find that thew standard speakers are ace. I won't be changing them yet!
I've added Lexus lights, debadged it, and given it blue seat covers and interior blue neon's for a cool cockpit effect. (the average seats looked a bit lame, but having said that are very hard wearing!)
My car came as standard with a sunroof, a drivers airbag, metallic paint and it looks awsome! All I need now is a set of alloys just to finish the look.
I will definitely have a Peugeot for my next car and although I was contemplating a 306 DTurbo I may go for a 106 GTI instead having loved this one. I won't be parting with it for a long time yet.
