1992 Peugeot 309 GLDT 1.8 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Reliable, economical, spacious, old fashioned, but it has everything that actually matters in a car
Only had the car for a week and it had something wrong with the power steering when I bought it... still the same now... vibrates when turning wheel if stationary... central locking does not work. A few rust spots on one side.
Excellent performance, amazing economy.. so far 250 miles on a half tank of diesel... and that ain't on the motorway!!
Comfy ride and plenty of space, one or two rattles and squeaks, but nothing to worry about, starts first time every time... paid £300 for this car a week ago because we have a baby on the way and need a reliable, economical car and as cheap as possible, so far I think it's a fantastic car... a bargain!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have had two Peugeot 309 diesels, both excellent in terms of reliability and cheap running costs. Things to watch for are leaking rear brake cylinders, noisy heater fans and trim dropping off (minor prob).
I would also make sure you change the timing belt every 45000miles, and oil every 6000miles.

87 309 GRD, I have had the car since it was new, it has never failed an MOT, with 84k miles on the clock, its still going like a good'n, the CAM belt doesn't need changing, but a lot of people don't know that there isn't a specified mileage to change it, it has no rust at all, due to that it has always been garaged, and the interior is in showroom condition, the 309 is 1 of the best cars Peugeot has ever made.
