1993 Peugeot 205 Sceptre 1.8 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
An economical, reliable, easy to maintain, fast car. How rare is that?
Required new discs and pads straight away. More recently a small coolant leak has developed via the thermostat gasket. Nothing else so far.
I was fortunate to come across this car in such good condition and with an almost perfect Peugeot service history.
The performance and economy are both very impressive and the car grips the road quite well too, with responsive and well weighted steering.
Finally, the cabin is a little dated and drab, but I think I can live with that because generally the car is as good as many modern, and more expensive cars I've driven.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
