2001 Peugeot 206 GLX 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Great, but uncomfortable
Climate Control is a bit strange - seems to blow either hot or cold, not just comfortably warm : (
Strange crumpling sound on acceleration when cold - dealer couldn't rectify.
Performance is good, a 1.6 engine in this car gives great power, yet returns 50 mpg+ quite easily too.
The standard 6CD changer is a big bonus too.
Pleasant interior styling,and of course wicked outside 206 looks.
Let down massively/solely by really uncomfortable seats/driving position.
Impossible to get comfortable on a long journey, and legs are very sore on arrival. (I'm 37,5'9 av build male).
Disappointing, as I want to sell it now, due to 90 mile commute each day : (
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Great car, but... since I get my 206 I have a problem with the car stopping while running and so far I am OK, but is dangerous and has not been sort out although the car has been with the dealer for a while.
Also from time to time a STOP STOP STOP signal came up on the dashboard and the needle of the temperature goes up to the top strait away. Once I stop for few minutes I can carry on driving without more visible problem.
I agreed that the car is so nice I love it with the above concerns in mind.
Sorry about my English I am a foreigner.
Thank you very much.

The car I own is brilliant; it has everything I wanted. No problems at all and has never had any work done since its day of manufacture.
I have it serviced regularly and the staff at Peugot garages have always been really helpful.
I love the seats and all the different adjustments I can make. As I have a back injury it was a feature that sold the car to me. I am so impressed I am considering up grading my present 2001 model for a more recent one.
