General Comments:

I have owned all my Peugeots from new. I ordered this straight from the Peugeot factory (in Brouillard in France), but this Peugeot has been a joy to both me and my family. I really love everything about the car. The ride, roadhandling, comfort and engine performance, everything about it is excellent.

I will never sell mine, I would say that having owned a Merecedes as well, the Peugeot 605 by far is better than my nearly new Mercedes E220 96 model.

I also look forward to buying the new

Peugeot 607, to complete my collection.

I am thrilled by the Ugandan's comment. I am acquiring a similar car soon. Can I have his contact so that I get some advise on maintenance, cost and where to get spares?

Thanks.
