Style over not much substance
The brakes have squealed constantly since new.
The windscreen wipers packed in after 2 months on the M8 in central Glasgow. This, as you can imagine, was not much fun.
The engine started to misfire after 12 months (15000 miles). This caused the engine management light to come on and the an anti pollution fault to be displayed. This message then turned to 'catalytic converter fault'. Numerous trips to the dealer failed to completely resolve the problem. It got to the stage where I wondered if the car would start or keep going at all.
The final straw came when my exhaust fell off after 2 years (34000 miles). Again on the M8 in central Glasgow. Luckily this was covered under warranty, but 2 weeks later the warranty would have expired. The catalytic converter was shot (surprise!!) The parts alone would have cost over £800.
I have now sold this car as I knew it was going to cost me a lot of money sooner or later now that the warranty has run out.
This was a fun car to drive when everything worked, but that was a rare occurrence.
I loved driving in the good weather with the roof down. (One of the few things that worked every time)
I hated being treated like a leper at the garage because the car was an import.
This was the second Peugeot I have owned and both have been very unreliable. (My other one was a 1995 306XLDT)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
