I would not have another Peugeot again
PEUGEOT 206 1.6 110 GLX 5dr [AC] (Review date: 4th August '13)
I have had a couple of Peugeot 206's but have to say that they were both the same.
The gearbox is terrible as the car doesn't seem to like going in reverse so have to put it in first then go into reverse which is not ideal. The car struggles to get up even the smallest of hills with passengers in the back. There is a constant rattling from the rear of the car so sounds like a bus. The tracking always needs to be done as it always goes out.
The running are not the best as it is not the cheapest to tax no matter what the engine size and is not very great on mpg as mine is very thursty which is why I have decided to get rid of mine and change it for a Ford Fiesta as this is cheaper to run.
My car is not worth much and mine needed a lot of work to get it through its M.O.T in total needed about Â£900 to get it through.
good first car
PEUGEOT 206 1.4 GLX 5dr [AC] (Review date: 13th June '13)
very good first car not to bad on fuel struggles with the motorway especially motorways with a slight incline if first car bit pricey on the insurance for the type of car that it is corsa's would be cheaper and quicker, great interior stereo and speaker abit temperamental did a 150 mile drive to minehead with no stops never skipped a beat abit rolly polley in the corners but that adds to the fun of the car brakes are abit crappy only reason im selling mine is i want a bigger car but sticking to peugeot and getting a 307
1.6 16v XSi 110bhp
PEUGEOT 206 1.6 XSi 3dr [AC] (Review date: 27th April '13)
Owned for over 1 year now, very cheap to maintain, insurance is reasonable and the punchy 1.6 engine returns over 40MPG on a run.
had to replace the exhaust, brakes and tyres in 1 year, just general age related/wearing items, parts are very cheap!
My XSi model is packed with all the mod cons, automatic headlights, automatic wiping, steering wheel radio controls, trip computer and much much more.
For a small car theres plenty of room, boot space is OK and front seats seat me well and I am 6ft tall.
The car is pleasant to drive, feels nimble but holds the road well with it, fuel consumption is great when driven steady (41mpg combined and nearly 50 on motorways), 110bhp from a lightweight one point six litre engine makes for some pretty decent acceleration too, would defenaitely say the rival of this car would be the ford fiesta zetec S, and I would take the 206 everytime.
The drivers side pillar is abit obstructive, interior build quality is abit shakey along with some of the outer trim, and the tiny pedals can take some getting used to, but if you can live with that, it is a great cheap run around.
Spacious but not very reliable
PEUGEOT 206 1.1 LX 3dr (Review date: 26th April '13)
Had it for a couple of months and it wasn't long before the gearbox started playing up. Took it to the mechanic who apparently fitted a new clutch and gearbox but the gears still feel loose and not very trustworthy.
Wouldn't recommend it as a first car or any car for that matter not too sure about other Peugeots but I certainly wouldn't by another one.
120000 mile 206 1.4 petrol still going strong!
PEUGEOT 206 1.4 LX 5dr [AC] (Review date: 24th February '13)
My 206 is 02 reg and covered 120000 miles but still going strong and is reliable, having said that the interior creaks and rattles and the gearchange is sloppy and the gearbox wines but for a small french car its good and covers 46 mpg but I have it serviced and repaired regardless of cost and do not thrash it!
