    My car

    My car is only one month old and already it has been back to the dealers twice.

    The first problem was that the gears popped out twice and then the car kept cutting out. This problem was noted on watchdog, which I just found out.

    The dealers have put a new ignition cable in because they said it needed a new one, but my car is new - what a joke. I'm not happy at all with the car.

    I've got it on finance, and it looks like I have to keep it for a while, so my fingers are always crossed. I will never get a Peugeot again.

    My car

    I have had the car from new in 2001. It has presented nothing but trouble since then. Within a month the petrol gauge, then the rev counter stopped working. The driver's door also started leaking water, leaving the carpets sodden. It has been recalled twice by Peugeot. The service indicator remains permanently on, despite the car being serviced at the right times. And a the dealer service is absolutely atrocious. I won't be buying another Peugeot.

    My car

    I've owned a Peugeot 206 for the past four years now. I immediately fell in love with the gorgeous looks of the car.

    We also own two Peugeot 106 models. After just four years and 17,000 miles my Peugeot 206 developed a defect in the differential, which had to be replaced. The differential apparently does not come as a seperate part, but comes as a complete kit along with the gearbox (costing around £1900).

    I managed to find a gearbox from a secondhand dealer, which was just the right type, but after that the car started giving me trouble with the electronics, and when the check engine light did not go off anymore, my heart almost stopped.

    Now the car has started to develop strange noises in the front shock absorbers, and things seem to keep on cropping up. I service the car regularly at the agent, and now I have finally decided that enough is enough and was going to get rid of the car and never look at another Peugeot in my life.

    Peugeot was once a market leader for quality.

    My car

    I bought this car in 2004. From the very beginning it presented various problems - mainly electrical problems and squeaking/rattling noises. The interior plastics were of the worst quality. The only good things about this car were its great look and handling and its economy.
