1994 Peugeot 405 GL 1.6 petrol injection from UK and Ireland
A good solid performer. Ideal family car
Both CV boots split, which resulted in the drivers side CV joint becoming worn and noisy. The remote control locking has failed several times.
Very good fuel economy. Cheap to run.
Very comfortable to ride in, unless you're over six foot tall, then head room does become a problem.
Good acceleration for the engine size. But the top end speed is a little disappointing.
Very small glove box and not enough space to put items down in eg. tapes etc.
Good all round vision from the driver's seat.
Lots of space in the boot. Can fit a very large amount of luggage into it and still have room to spare.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
