2004 Peugeot 206 GTi 180 2.0L 16v from South Africa
Great performance, but unreliable
Coil pack failed.
Secondary air pump failed (exhaust).
Camshaft oil leak, resulted in early cambelt replacement.
Oil leak between head and block.
Absolute pressure sensor failed. The car was off the road for 6 weeks.
Water pump failed.
Sunroof leaks when it rains, and rattles on bumpy roads.
Front suspension arm replaced.
Sump oil gasket leak.
Dealer fitted an incorrect air filter; the filter was too small, allowing dirt into the engine.
Catalytic converter blocked, exhaust replaced.
2 engine mountings collapsed, causing the V belt to slip off.
Power steering pump failed.
The car does put a smile on my face when travelling long distances. Overtaking capability is great.
But it does give me nightmares, and I have to try think positively about it, and pray that nothing more goes wrong.
I will sell it as soon as it is economical for me to do so, because I have not had the car two years yet, and it is financed.
Dealer principle has poor service, and I'm sure phenomenal profits are made on spares.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
