What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For It's stylish and practical

Against The ride and handling are poor

Verdict It has four seats and it's fairly elegant, but it hasn't aged well

Go for… 2.0 SE

Avoid… 1.6 auto

Peugeot 306 Cabriolet
  • 1. Camshaft seals and cam belts must be changed every three years or 36,000 miles
  • 2. The hood is electrically operated, so make sure the mechanism works smoothly and the hood itself is free of leaks
  • 3. The heated glass rear window is better that the plastic ones on the 306’s contemporaries
  • 4. The clutch can break if not checked. If it feels too stiff, it probably needs attention
  • 5. Opt for the post-’97 vehicles and stick to the 2.0-litre petrol engine
