1996 Peugeot 406 GLX 2.1 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
I am very impressed so far
Having had the car for only 3 months the only things I have found wrong with the car is the outside temp sensor doesn't work.
The rear disc pads need changed.
The car is very confortable to ride in seats ect.
It is very stable on the motorways.
The 2.1 turbo diesel runs very well for such a heavy car. Mileage isn't that great it gets around 40 mph on average.
Very nice looking car for the age.
Everything works as it was from new.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Lets be honest, the Peugeot 406 is dated and dull. 99.9% of Peugeot product are unreliable, and adding big engines and leather seats doesn`t make any difference. Other cars in this class are better looking and cheaper to purchase and run. Companies like Fiat and Seat are offering cars at realistic prices and are a much better buy offering similar, if not better, levels of equipment. C'mon Peugeot, sort yourselves out, you are playing catch up already; after all it`s 2007. By the way when are Peugeot going to finish off the front end of the 407! Looks like it's got a big black hole in it! Did they run out of plastic? There's enough on the inside to borrow!

Had a Vectra diesel.. absolute crap! Had a Mondeo with the pathetic 1.8 td unit, again! Even had a BMW 325 TDS nice car, but nothing but problems with it, and the 406 beats them all hands down for comfort and reliability, and to be honest even looks! But not sure about the 407.
