1998 Peugeot 106 Rallye 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland

Summary:

Superb driving car which needs more attention to detail when being built

Faults:

New back brake discs, new alternator (sp?) which turned out to be a faulty earthing strap - 3 weeks to fix properly, new catalyst, then a new exhaust system, all done under warranty thank goodness.

Poor quality paint on the wheels.

General Comments:

This car is just so good to drive, brings a big grin to my face driving it I can tell you. Power steering on mine does make the difference.

It is just a pity Peugeot can't put them together properly, or their dealers sort out a problem properly.

These cars are great and with a bit of application on the quality front from Peugeot nobody, nobody would drive anything else.

The dealers on the whole leave an awful lot to be desired, expensive and unresponsive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1998 Peugeot 106 Xsi 1.1 injecton petrol from Russia

Faults:

The window glass cracked a bit after a huge stone got in it.

General Comments:

Surprisingly agile. Stylish. Marred by noise at high speeds. Needs air-con, some extras. But the dealer "Armand" asks 3200 USdollars to install air-con, 2400 for ABS. etc. I wonder is it so costly to do it in France?

1998 Peugeot 106 GTi 1.6 16v petrol from UK and Ireland

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Acceleration is phenomenal and due to it being so small and the awesome handling it feels like you are going twice as quick. The aggressive and sporty looks are a far cry from the typical ' cute' 106 models. Jan 99 has seen a change in alloys to new 'daytona' style which are an insult to people's eyes.

1998 Peugeot 106 Rallye 1.6 injection petrol from UK and Ireland

Faults:

Immobiliser wouldn't let the car start on a couple of occasions, rectified by taking key out of ignition and trying again.

Hand brake cable came away from retainig clips causing it to rub on rear wheel. Dealer says it is a "characteristic".

In very wet conditions the car was only firing on 2 cylinders (having gone through a puddle).

And finally whilst overtaking the rev limiter cut in at 4000 revs. It cleared when I lifted off and then accelerated again

General Comments:

Despite all the problems I have had I wouldn't swap it for anything else . It goes and handles great with even the shortest of journeys bringing a huge smile to my face.

Like the page it's a good idea, if we all did one I wonder if Peugeot would take a look.

I have a problem with my 106 diesel, I think its the immobilizer as the engine turns over, but the only light on the dash is the air bag light.

What is the significance of the key being taken out, the only theory I can think you had was that the key makes a circuit some where along the line.

I've been told that the whole immobilizer can be bypassed, is this correct and if so could you please tell me how to do it.

Thanks in advance.

1998 Peugeot 106 Gti 1.6i petrol from UK and Ireland

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Having previously owned a Peugeot 205GTi and a 106XSi, and previously tested a number of VW Golf GTi's, I have to say, the 106 clean sweeps the lot under the carpet. It's ride and handling compares to nothing I have driven before. This along with a strong nimble engine and stunning looks, should put the latest Peugeot sporting hot hatch top of every car buyer's list.

Clip missing off offside/right brake.

Fabulous car.

I drive to work on a B road and enjoy every mile every day!

I've put Valbrem 941 rims on to make the car look and feel better.
