1999 Peugeot 106 Zest 2 1.5 diesel from UK and Ireland
Not a vehicle to buy if you're used to anything better
Radiator needed replacing 38000
Total brake failure 39000 (not covered by warranty)
Sunroof seal repaired at 40000 miles and at 44000 miles (non warranty). Still leaks.
Rear wheel bearings replaced 46000.
The worst vehicle I've owned in forty years, and the worst Peugeot from seven I've owned in the last 21 years.
Horrendously uncomfortable on a longer run than the local shops.
Pedal spacing unsafe for anybody with larger than size 7 feet. Right shoe can catch under the break pedal if having to brake suddenly.
Prominent engine rattle three main dealers claimed is "characteristic" of the vehicle. What happened to the claim - "if you can tell you're driving a diesel, it's not a Peugeot"?
A truly awful, albeit economical, small car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
