1995 Peugeot 306 XLDT 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Very quick, affordable driving
Rear brakes stuck on; found to be shoes had come apart from friction material.
Radiator went just before I got it.
Ignition barrel collapsed (when I was in 250 miles away from home). Peugeot were very helpful and I managed to change the barrel myself. The barrel cost £100.
I love the engine, noisy when cold, but very lively once the turbos wound up.
It can cruise at 80/90mph with ease and will carry on to do around 115-120mph.
Its excellent on fuel - I got 52.5 to a gallon driving from Ipswich to Bristol - cruising at 85 and driving round the city centre all week.
The seats have worn, although some high mileage examples are starting to wear a bit.
It can beat 1.6 petrol cars and some 1.8's with not too much difficulty, and can embarrass some larger 2.0 cars. It also have the upper hand on most other 1.9 turbo diesels due to being a light car.
I'm 18 and insurance is £1200 with 0 years no claims bonus. Which is reasonable believe it or not!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

And you cannot budge it either you can put round any corner and it just sticks.
