Central Locking on key fob not working on test drive. Fine when I picked up the car, but stopped working 5 days later.
Replaced batteries but they stopped after another 5 days.
Batteries for key fob are expensive (£6.00 per pair in the shops, but cheaper on-line.)
This is a common fault with the 306 and Peugeot with charge you £70 for a new fob, which is crazy when you think about it. I mean it's basically the same as your infa-red TV remote control only with 2 buttons!!- Rip Off!
Also, you have to be standing right next to the car door for the damn thing to operate!
Bad dent on rim of nearside front wheel on test drive. Thought they'd sorted it out when it came to picking the car from the garage, but turns out they swapped it with the spare!... Should've seen that one coming.
Stalk to operate CD player not working.
It's got a replacement Sony unit in the car and to get the stalk to operate the volume/radio station etc you need to buy a "blue lead" from Sony at a cost of £45! Another rip off!
Radiator leaking after 1 week. £80 + labour for a replacement.
Some of the dashboard illumination bulbs have blown.
Annoying creaks and rattles from dashboard.
The car shudders a bit when pulling away from start on colder mornings. Feels like it's coming from the clutch for some reason.
Washer jets to windscreen keep getting blocked and even after they're cleared out with a pin and set properly, the power behind the spray seems to vary from day to day. One minute they're fine, the next, they're spraying the car behind!
Tires replaced after 8000 miles of driving (admittedly that could be my fault!).
