1992 Peugeot 205 Zest 1.1 from UK and Ireland
Ideal first car, and even a good second car
Kept over heating when I first bought it, was easy fix at the local garage.
Oil filter cracked after about 120,000 miles, again easy fix.
Great little first car, loads of room for taller people, I'm 6ft 2" and have enough room.
Quite a nippy car on acceleration up to about 60mph, handles motorways fine.
My only complaint with this car is the handling on corners, as it's a standard car the suspension is very spongy, taking corners sometimes feels like its going to tip over.
I'm actually now selling it so I can buy a 205 GTi.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
