1990 Peugeot 309 Style 1.3 from UK and Ireland
Economical, tough, with a bit of power when you need it
Sun roof seal has perished.
Exhaust is making noise.
Cassette on the stereo stopped working.
The Peugeot is solid. It hasn't got great electrics (pretty basic even when compared to an older Nissan Micra) but it is solid with a decent engine.
It's got enough power to get you, two mates and a pile of computers to do 92 on the motorway, although the acceleration could be better.
Easy to maintain also, although you do need to do it - neglect is not a good idea!
Seals, particularly sun roof and boot, need maintaining carefully.
Furnishings wear well.
A good car all in all, but don't expect too many fancy extras. (i.e. electric windows, decent stereo, power steering)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
