2001 Peugeot 206 GTi 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Great fun little car, but not for long journeys
Key broke due to iced up fuel cap.
Very hard seats.
Bad seat position.
The car is good, but I am now finding that its seats are so hard, and it's very difficult to get them in the right position, so that anyone who drives it for over 30 minutes, does find they get numb legs etc. And as I now drive it an 1 hour 30 minutes to and from work each day, it is proving to be very uncomfortable.
During the icy period in the UK, I have had terrible trouble with refueling my car, as every single time the fuel cap ices up. I usually have to ask for warm water from the fueling station to de-ice it every time. I have used wd40 on it, but it's not working.
Recently it was so icy that I managed to break my key in the fuel cap; being so far away from home, I had to get the car recovered. I contacted several Peugeot dealers for a new blade for the key, who then tried to charge me £50-27. I did eventually get it for £27, but the key would take 5 days to get to the dealership, unfortunately I had to wait as I had no spare key... moral of the story; always make sure you have a spare key, and always check for ice!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
