1998 Peugeot 406 LX 2.2 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
A roomy comfortable smooth and safe ride
Very little has gone wrong with the car.
The radio stalk on the steering column was defective, which was replaced by the dealer.
The door trim on the drivers side was damaged, again this was replaced by the dealer.
Unable to get any history on the car from the dealer. (Imported from Northern Ireland).
Drivers seat does lack lumbar support despite the adjustment feature built into the seat.
The car is less responsive in first gear, but is very responsive at the higher end of the gear range.
Very smooth ride
Very good handling for a car of it's size
Massive load space on the estate
Diesel engine has not given any bother at all.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

This comment is regarding the fact the original review said the car was "unresponsive" in first gear. Potential buyers don't be put off as this is called "electronic boost reduction", fitted to a lot of post 1992ish turbo diesel vehicles, that limits the engines power in first gear so it is not so easy to spin the wheels. Anyone who has driven a slightly older turbo diesel (my old 205 for one) knows what I mean.
