1998 Peugeot 406 from UK and Ireland
An absolute turkey!
Indicator stalk wouldn't work. Replaced, now doesn't work again.
Driver's door window stuck shut, replaced door motor, now stuck again.
Radio packed in within a month of me having it.
Outside temperature sensor gauge no longer works.
Absolute nightmare to start in the winter - can take half an hour before the car will fire.
Back exhaust replaced twice.
Intermittent loss of power when motorway driving.
Constant ABS warning light on dashboard, which the garage now tell me to ignore because they can't find a reason for it.
I bought this car second hand, thinking I had a bargain as it was in beautiful external condition, and the mileage was so low. After three years ownership, the outside condition is still immaculate, but now I know why the mileage was low. It clearly spent most of its time in the garage being repaired, just as it's spent most of its time in my ownership at a garage. The mechanic actually commented on how immaculate the engine was when I lifted the bonnet, and said, 'You clearly don't drive it often.' 'Chance would be a fine thing,' I replied.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
