1998 Peugeot 406 DLX 2.0 petrol from Malaysia
Stalled in traffic when temp. got above 90C. Problem surfaced at 40000km. Took authorised service agent 9 months to identify actual cause. Replaced 'double relay' under warranty.
Knocking sounds from rear suspension also at 40000km, rectified by re-torquing nuts.
Both cooling fans replaced due to failure, one at 56000km and the other at 64000km.
Excellent car from Peugeot. Performance a little poor compared to other cars in class. Comfort and roadholding on par with better makes. Overall reliability marred by poor CKD assembly quality and below average service by authorised service agent in country.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
