1995 Peugeot 405 GTX 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Not worth 20k new. Otherwise the dogs nuts
Intermittent bulbs fail (Peugeot trait - to keep you on your toes).
Suspension noises no-one else can detect (located as outriggers - common fault).
Appaling dealer servicing - Cliffords.
Auto box - heavy and wears the inside front tyres.
Rear tyre security bolts seized - replaced and kept greased.
Possible head gasket oil leak (possibly done by the dealer to cough up more money?)
Intermittent starting problems - probably the battery although the dealer wants the customer to buy a £250 piece of plastic.
The auto box and cruise control are ace for the speed cameras, set and cruise at 40mph etc... annoys other drivers though.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 1992 Peugeot 405 1.9 GTX model. I've been having problems when I put it in drive, it revs high and doesn't go anywhere, but when I put it into 1st it drives up the box, but won't go in 1st. Do you have any idea what that is?
If so e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, it will be much appreciated.
