Summary:

Ideal car for anyone wishing to save on fuel

Faults:

When I bought the car, it looked really nice, the body work and paintwork were in immaculate condition, the engine was all in one piece unlike my old 206, but things I had issues with were as follows:-

The central locking mechanism on the passengers side decided to die for no reason.

The alarm system worked as far as protecting the car against a break in, but if someone were to be able to get in and unlock it, it wouldn't work, the ultrasonic had packed up.

Its only 6 years old, and only has 71,0000 miles on the clock so this shouldn't be an issue.

General Comments:

It handles really well, but could do with a better braking system, the car seems over powered for its underpowered brakes, it could also do with ABS to control the skid when the wheels lock up.

It has excellent mpg, better than the non turbo 1.9 version

Summary:

I wouldn't buy another, but suppose it's OK if you can see past all the rattles etc

Faults:

Engine management problem upon delivery from dealer, took a week to resolve, mean while I got a 1.4 dirty courtesy car, not a good first impression from my dealer.

Suspension rattles when cornering.

Build quality is not the best, squeaks and rattles from engine bay and interior trim are very annoying. I have not managed to trace them all yet.

Engine generally noisy and unrefined.

Poor take up when re-applying accelerator at speed, engine seems to back off before providing any power.

Clutch very heavy, and gearbox not very smooth, I lost count of the number of times my foot beat my hand due to an poor gear change.

Very strange driving position, I couldn't get comfortable at all. Found myself constantly changing my seat position.

General Comments:

Not all bad! climate control is very good, never had to touch the settings come winter or summer, this shows that it can maintain a set temperature.

This car is quick! even if it rattles! for a 138BHP unit it definitely cuts the mustard, saw plenty off plenty of rivals.

Summary:

Great fun and reliable, just a couple of little niggles

Faults:

Front wiper blades snapped (my own fault).

General Comments:

Looks fantastic.

Handles well, very nimble and great fun.

Visibility reduced by front windscreen supports.

Good speed and power for a 1.4 and is good for cruising at 80 to 90mph on the motorway.

Can get a bit loud in the cabin when at these speeds though.

Gear changes can feel a bit labored and clunky.

Fuel economy more like a 1.6, and if anything worse than a 1.6 on the motorway.

Low tax and insurance.

After driving 3 hours on the motorway I did find myself in a bit of discomfort due to the seat.

Summary:

Absolute beauty, but jinxed

Faults:

On delivery, the air Conditioning has not worked, even though this was pointed out to the dealer when I bought the car.

There is a constant whining from the cam belt, the gear box rattles in 5th gear.

The exhaust rattles constantly (so does the dashboard and rear torsion bars).

The latest thing to happen is that the doors lock and unlock themselves randomly. The car is possessed!

General Comments:

The car is gorgeous - it looks like sex on wheels with its 16' alloys, and full Peugeot sport kit (Mesh grille, spoiler, Arch extensions)

It's a shame that it seems to be totally jinxed for me. I'm selling it soon because I'm sick of the faults, but its fantastic to look at and it handles like something else!
