Frugal, good image, needs TLC
Nightmare to own from Day 1.
Peugeot dealers tried to rip me off for a major service, very quick to point out what needed doing, however they didn't complete the service (I noticed the air filter hadn't been replaced)!!
Problems so far, front suspension arm bushes need replacing (tip: Peugeot only sell the full suspension arms which cost a fortune, go to Citroen and get some bushes from the ZX, they are exactly the same and get them fitted by an independent dealer.)
Radiator needed replacing, leading to a blown heater matrix, this is 'dash out job' and takes around 6 hours in labour alone.
New rear cylinders, brake discs and pads. Rear self adjusters kept 'unadjusting' themselves!!
I like the styling and the ride, it also goes well after I had a performance upgrade from Allard Turbosport (based in Monmouth UK). I recommend this upgrade if you want a little extra poke every now and again.
This car just seems to be full of niggles, maybe it is just my bad luck. I had a 8 year old Metro GTi before with 90,000 miles on the clock, and it never missed a beat!!
Cars are trouble...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
