1998 Peugeot 406 LX 2.1 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Speedometer stopped working.
Clicking noise from under the dashboard.
Electric windows stopped working.
Headlight bulbs constantly blowing.
Catalytic converter split.
Rumbling noise from the back wheels.
The car is very comfortable and nice to drive, espescially on a long run.
However the constant electrical faults and road noise from the back end ruin what could be a great car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The comments you posted seem to be for your car experience only. I have an N Reg 406, and have experienced none of the problems you have. I bought my car new, therefore I am the only owner, and have never had the speedometer quit on me, no noise from back end, and the bulbs do blow, but no more than any other car I have. The only major problem I have had, is that the Coil Pack quit on me, but was easy to fit and not too expensive. I agree that it is a very comfortable car to drive, and would surely recommend this car to anyone.
I have a 1997 P reg' LX Diesel. At approx 65,000 mls I had the clicking dashboard which proved to be the re-circulating pump. At the time it cost about £160 to be replaced at the main dealer. This has happened again at 129,000 mls. Also now at 138,000 mls the speedometer fails intermittently. In view of the mileage I don't think it's too bad.
