I bought my current peugeot on impluss after my previous car was going to cost far more to fix than it was worth. I looked in the first garage i found, looked at a few peugeots & bought this one. Apart from general wear & tear, wipers & tyres i have not had any problems with it. I've love it, i find it comfy to sit in & drive, great handling, fantastic MPG's, good quality inside the cabin and enough space in the boot to get the monthly shopping in or suitcase's. . I have recommended this car, it's great and my next car..............when i decided to get one in a few years time will be another peugeot.
Owned this car for 3 years. Brought a 53 plate in Jan 06 with 20k on the clock. Experienced immediate problems. When indicating right, indicator then starts indicating left after having turned! Never got this repaired - can not be bothered to pay out to repair it! - I am used to it now and cancel it myself.
Passenger seat broken as well, stuck reclining back! Asked Peugeot to look at it, they advised it requires new seat frame - no alternative - £600 inc. labour!!!
The aerial also ‘leaks’. After night of heavy rain I get in the car next morning and there is a puddle in the gear stick material! Rain seeps underneath the aerial and leaks through the interior light! Will bodge that up myself with glue before part exchaning it.
75K on the clock now and I am upgrading to a diesel and 5 door due to family, etc. Hopefully the 407. I am happy to get rid of the car as the clutch is now starting to slip.
Exhaust has been replaced twice during my ownership and the headlights and sidelights, well, I have lost count! My friend who is a mechanic says it could be due to an electrical fault.
Ride isn't great, nor the driving position. Poor gear box, acceleration pretty poor, doesn't like motorways.
Problems: build quality, ride and handling.
Positives: pretty car, despite above mention problems never broken down on me whilst driving (touch wood!)
This was my 1st car&I was easily deceived by its good looks. It was fine 4 a yr but in Sept08 all hell broke loose.
One day the odometer/trip meter stopped working. Then the hazard lights stopped working as did the clock, nearly every warning light on the instrument panel, the petrol guage wasnt working, the rev counter stayed stuck@1000revs.
After the garage looked at it I was told that the computer controlling the dash had failed&needed repairing .I got the car back that day, still with all its problems&told that I could still drive it. I booked it in a week later&it was in the garage for 2 weeks. The computer was sent off for repair to a so-called "dash specialist."I went&collected the car&they'd replaced the fuel sender unit&only managed to get the odometer/trip meter working again. The garage I took it too is owned and run by a very good family friend so I knew I could trust him.
It was in for another 2 weeks. I went to collect it again&everything was fixed. I drove it 10 miles down the road&the fuel warning light was coming on when I had over 1/4 tank in the car. I rang the garage&I then had to drive it back and all the mechanics were looking at it.
I drove it that evening&as I was driving home I broke down.It cut out&I lost all power&brakes. Breakdown came out&couldn't get it started again so I was towed home&they then towed it back to my friend's garage the next day. It was back in for another 2 days&the fuel relay had gone.Bills=£800+DO NOT BUY A 206!
My wife owned the car for just over 5 years before changing it last year. She loved driving it but I found it difficult to get the driving position right. The height adjustment had two settings,like a see-saw.Steering was vague but it handled ok.Performance was average but the engine screamed at 70mph on the motorway. The radiator spilt its guts but luckily for us we spotted it before setting off and it cost just over £100 for a new one including fitting.The brakes also sheered at the back severing a brake line which wasn't the best,but luckly it stopped safetly(just).Apart from that it was just normal wear and tear parts that needed replacing and it never really dented our pocket. The cabin was average,but the seats comfy and the velour insert on the glove box lid was...unique.I felt there was more room in it than my Clio. The 206 still looks good but for me the driving position really let it down.If you can get comfy driving it then its a good motor.
