A Little Star!
Glove box won't shut properly - that's all.
After driving my much loved, but much abused Peugeot 405 for many years, I decided to try out the unassuming 309.
This car is superb! Cheap, incredibly reliable, and believe it or not quite speedy when you need it.
The interior is a little dated in it's appearance, but to me, that adds to this little car's great charm.
The 309 will sit happily at 80 mph with a full boot load of scuba kit in it - and that's heavy!! The inside is roomy, and the boot will swallow all of my kit with no complaints at all.
I get an average of 44 m.p.g from this car, and she starts first time every time - with a little help from the manual choke.
No oil leaks or engine problems reported so far, and a mechanic friend of mine says that these cars are pretty much infallable.
A real recommended CHEAP run around!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
