1991 Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Leaky exhaust which never got fixed.
Some of the heat protection on the underside rattled then fell off.
My head gasket blew at 99,000 miles.
Funking excellent car to drive. Like driving on rails, but still with the thrill of being on four wheels.
When I found out the max. HP can be found at 6,250rpm I thought to myself that I had to try it. I did and it was sweet as!! But, once I popped the fun didn't stop. I found myself doing this through every gear until the head gasket went.
The car was cheap and I sold it at a loss, the fuel consumption was piss poor so you could say that it was a bad decision getting the car. This is wrong, it was the funnest year of my life, expensive, but I owned a gorgeous looking car that revved like a madman!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
