1998 Peugeot 406 LX 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
What things have gone wrong with the car?
Radio on/off button was broken on my car I brought it, but I didn’t mind too much as I was replacing the radio with a Sony unit.
Relay for heated rear window burn out. Not too happy as I think the fuse should have blown first!!! €80 to replace it from dealer as it’s a "special relay" with a timer.
Replaced front brake discs as one had warped. But with 135000 on the clock I think it was time to change them anyway!
Standard battery not powerful enough on cold mornings to start it, fitted high amp battery to fix it.
Has a few small rattles in the dash.
I love the car. It's a great car for long journeys and has plenty of room for my friends and all there luggage.
1.9td is very good on the open road or motorway, but thirsty in the traffic.
Much better car than the 306.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
