Summary:

A reliable and reassuring car

Faults:

C.V. joint needed replacing, at 72000 miles.

Currently having a few electrical problems: The rear lights keep fusing and the horn sometimes decides not to work.

Also, the clock has stopped displaying, so I suspect the fuse box.

General Comments:

I am very pleased with the car's reliability so far.

It drives well and gives me confidence that it can take me on a long journey at relatively high-speed, without struggling, or developing any problems.

My partner is currently on her second Peugeot Diesel, a 306L.

Her previous car was a 206 Junior Diesel, which had 93000 miles when bought and 171000 when sold and the only problem the engine developed, was a blown head gasket - once!

Insurance, is Group 4, which would be cheap if I didn't live in Manchester, England!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Wow, you have a 206 made 3 years before they went into production, what did you do, take it back in time and register it in 1995?
