2003 Peugeot 206 LX 2.0HDi from UK and Ireland
Promised so much, but failed to deliver so often
Fuel system failed resulting in everything from the tank to the injectors needing to be replaced.
Indicator switch failed which needed to be replaced.
Drivers door had to be re-aligned.
Steering wheel had to be re-aligned.
Front Fog lights failed.
Damaged to the bonnet and front wing caused by the dealership.
Clutch had to be repaired due to fluid loss?
Internal Oil display had to be repaired twice still not working.
Second steering problem on-going fault, still not found yet.
Both handling and fuel economy is great on this little car.
The cabin in small, but feels bigger than it is.
Seats are OK, but long journeys are no fun with out a break.
The pedals are too close to each other.
Rear space is cramped, but will seat 5 people for short journeys.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

1.4 Automatic good drive, but gearbox needed replacement after just 4000 miles, second gearbox is not smooth, avoid automatics.

I have a 2002 LX 206. It recently had to have its fan replaced. Now however the indicators aren't working unless you put pressure on them. Is this a sensor thing? I have been told that once sensor problems occur in a peugeot its time to get rid of it! Anyone know anything about that?

I own a 206 2.0 HDI with 87k on the clock. Within the past year, the speedo has failed, rear wheel bearing, gearbox mountings, gear synchronisers, air con compressor, alternator, EGR valve... the list goes on and on. Fuel economy is dreadful; 24 MPG on A roads driving at 50 mph.
This is the first Pug I have owned, and will most definitely be my last. The car feels like a tin can.. on the motorway above 60 mph, it feels like it's going to fly; wobbles all over the road. Should have listened to my mechanic and got a Focus!!!
