1993 Peugeot 205 XAD GL 1.8 diesel from UK and Ireland
A load of crap, fit for the scrappers
New wheel bearings every 20k
New CV boot
New glo plugs.
Having spent £110 on a wheel bearing, I took one look at her and thought forget it, I ain't spending anything else on it, and I ran it into the ground!
The drive shaft eventually started to fail, which was my final alert, and I bought a new car. My 205 fell to bits with the exhaust falling off on its last few days!
I eventually had it scrapped for £30, and that was that!
It's a shed!
It wouldn't go any faster than 65mph, as it's like a block of cheese!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I do not understand why you accept such stupid reviews. The crap is not in the car...

Maybe the mileage was a factor...

I think the 300,000 miles it had covered probably had something to do with the problems, especially if its not been maintained properly! Give it a break! Mines on 190k and still drives like new (oil change every 5k and serviced regularly!)! Passed last mot with no advisories!

Really, the simple fact that a cheap little utilitarian car - cheap at the time of purchase brand new, and cheap to repair - has attained this huge mileage is absolutely noteworthy.
