I stand by my original comment, this car is not high mileage. It's just a bag of badly designed bolts that shouldn't have this number of problems at 78,000km (yes, I did read that correctly). Even French cars should last longer than this.
78000 km is low. A Japanese car would still drive like new. All the issues you had refer to poor built quality, unless you had poor luck with your sample. I am not a big fan of Peugeot myself, due to their weakness. The drive is boring compared to other euro cars like Audi or BMW. Good review.
I own an SV D9 manual trans, 2000 model. A sweet ride. It had 160,000+ km on the odometer when I got her. Aside from an ABS and airbag warning fault, the car has been flawless since I got her early this year.
Most of the faults you listed are BSI related issues. A simple BSI reset will correct all those faults. Probably, someone disconnected the battery terminals without following the battery disconnection procedures on BSI Peugeots like yours. Not following the procedure sometimes would corrupt the BSI, and similar issues to those you listed will come up until the BSI is reset, if the unit has not been damaged by the abuse for not following the procedures while removing the battery terminals.
The ES9J4S, the V6 engine in all D9 V6 models, has Sagem coil packs which don't last. Replacing them with Delphi coil packs fixes the problem. You should have found out from modern Peugeot experts what was wrong, rather than condemning a car that has no fault except it wasn't been taken care of as it should have been.
Did you scan it with PP2000 (Peugeot Planet 2000)? Because if you had done that, you would have seen that the car had no major issues, except normal wear and tear.
