1997 Peugeot 306 Genoa (Special Edition) 1.4 from UK and Ireland
Great car - exceptional handling!!
Cam belt needed replacing just after it was bought.
Heater leaked - mostly into passenger foot-well, only escaping major mess thanks to floor mat. Was rather costly to repair!!
Rear washer jet blocked (and is again currently) and was impossible to fix ourselves (no doubt a ploy to get garages, and Peugeot, more money), cheap to fix, but annoying having to get it booked into a garage for such a simple thing!
Good, fast car.
Handles great at speed, good acceleration through the gears. copes fine in 5th at low speeds of 30 through villages, however poor acceleration in 5th on exiting!
Inside generally good, seats very comfy (even for driving 2 days non-stop from England to Spain), glove compartments slightly small (for things such as road maps), and the top glove compartment means loss of dashboard space, which would probably have been more useful!
Not bad on petrol over long steady journeys, however drinks lots for short trips, and HUGE tank means my needle is constantly on empty!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
