Not suitable for regular transportation
I bought this car new in 1980 because it was very comfortable and came, in the U.S., with a one year unlimited mileage warranty. I put a lot of miles on cars and needed the warranty to take a chance on the manufacturer.
The car was worked on by 18 dealers in 5 different states in its first year of life. Almost everything that could go wrong, did go wrong.
The electrical system was unstable, blew fuses, popped bulbs, and over cooked the battery. The headliner fell down. The sun roof stuck open. The radiator fell into the engine. The brakes never pulled straight or without a wobble. Even the throttle cable broke.
There is a reason that Peugeot does not sell cars in the U.S. and I think some of it has to do with the amount of warranty work they did on my car.
The dealers did the best that they could, but it was an impossible task to keep it on the road.
But, when it was on the road it was a very comfortable car to travel in.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
