1989 Peugeot 205 GTi 1.9 from UK and Ireland
Great fun on winding roads
The rear of car dropped and drivers side rear wheel turned in at the top, it needed new rear axle/suspension assembly at 130000 miles. £350 fitted.
Starter motor failing at 139000 miles. £16 for second hand one.
Oil pressure a little low, but found dipstick seal had fallen off, replaced dipstick and the oil pressure is now fine. £5 for new one.
Current knocking from suspension which looks like it could be due to worn bushes.
Great car. Very fast, but its best feature is the handling where it behaves when you want it to, but can also have fun with overstear.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
