1990 Peugeot 505 GR Family Estate 2.0 from UK and Ireland


215,000 and still going on the same petrol engine


Steering rack needed replacement.

Clutch push rod snapped - worth carrying a spare. 5 minutes to re-fit & costs < £10.

Water draining holes get blocked with leaves, causing water to collect & overflow into the driver's footwell.

Electric door rear locks gave up a long time ago.

General Comments:

Always keeps going, even when there are problems. Great driving across France, down to Spain. The greater the load, the more comfortable it seems.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
