Comfortable car from the french
The exhaust kept on rattling.
When you have been on journey, say half an hour, when you stop and turned the engine off, there would be a strong smell of burning and grey smoke would also appear from under the car. Looks like the rear passenger tyre area to me.
A common problem on the 406 is that when you have the handbrake on, the brake fluid level low thing comes on the screen. This has been like that since we have had the car.
The engine has never broken down (touch wood). The only time it has had a spanner on the engine is for routine servicing (cambelt change).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
