1992 Peugeot 205 GTi 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
Wicked hatch to throw about
Drive shafts (both).
Most of the rubber pipes under the bonnet.
Doesn't like the wet!
The handling is fantastic, except in the wet, where it understeers badly.
Chassis could easily cope with more power.
I've had a lot of problems with it, but it drives so well, I love it anyway.
The gearing is very low, so motorways are a problem, and the fuel consumption is crap, but then you don't buy one of these for either of those things anyway!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
