1996 Peugeot 306 XS 1.6 from UK and Ireland
The alarm system broke and left the left indicator lights permanently on shorty after I bought the car. The Franchised dealership I recently bought the car from a Franchised dealership (Richard Hardie, Hebburn, Tyne & Wear). The whole unit had to be replaced at my expense (£275) as it wasn't covered by the dealer warranty.
Shortly after the rear break drums went, this was partially covered by the warranty, but I still had to cough up a couple of hundred pounds for the bits that were not covered by the warranty.
Shortly before selling the car on the new alarm broke, but did not render the vehicle unusable like the first alarm.
The dealership gave zero after sales care and did not care once the car was driven off the forecourt.
The car was uncomfortable to drive due to the tight fitting cheap 'sports seats'.
It was slower than its looks hinted.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
