    My car

    I learned to drive in one of these, so I bought a low mileage 2-year old when I passed my test and have been driving it for 3 years. It has been a disapointing experience. Mechanically it has been sound with good MPG. However, in the first 18 months I had persistent electrical problems resulting in the milo not working and which took the car off the road several times. Also, there was a problem with the drivers seat which meant that it had to be replaced. Just after the warranty expired, I had further electrical problems and the drivers seat had to be replaced again, less than 10K after the last seat was replaced. In about 40000 miles my car has had 4 drivers seat frames, they are sealed units which can't be repaired! I estimate I have spent about £900 I shouldn't have had to spend on a car of this age. I'm often told that I'm the only person they know who has had problems with a 206. I'm changing my car this month, it isn't another Peugeot.

    My car

    I have had this car for 10 months and have had no problems with the running of it, it has ran smoothly from day one and has been extremely cheap to keep on the road. A very reliable car but like any car its important to do your research on the dealer before buying!!
