1990 Peugeot 205 1.9 from Norway
Surprise! Absolutely recommended for cheap car buyers
Sometimes when warm, the starter will turn but the engine won't ignite.
I got the car because my other car lost cooling and over heated, which ruined the engine. I tried the 205 and it was a delight to drive, though it might seem exaggerated, the over-smooth drive was really a surprise.
I never expected the quality of the car either, I expected it to break down soon, as my driving is quite hard and not so friendly to the car, but it has never failed me. The driveshafts are making some noise when I turn the wheels, but that is something you can expect from any car that has driven so far.
It is also astonishing how everything has kept so good after 20 years and over 220 000 KM, the interior is in almost perfect condition, just dirty. I am impressed.
The car is also galvanised so there isn't a trace of rust on it!
Handling is perfect. The 1.9 engine combined with the automatic transmission is nice in the way that you can drive smoothly and calm if you like, or when you should need or want to drive fast. It's also really nice on your wallet if you drive calmly.
I am so glad the bodywork is galvanised, because I want to keep this car for as long as I live.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
