Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Peugeot 106 hatchback?

The 106 wasn't really built to last forever and the suspension may need repairs at any time after 50,000 miles. Pay close attention to knocking noises, look for uneven tyre wear and check the car drives straight and true. According to Warranty Direct, suspension and axles give the biggest trouble.

Coolant and oil leaks aren't unheard of. If the car shows any signs of these - particularly oil trouble - give the car a wide berth. There are plenty to choose from without risking ending up with something that could cost a small fortune.
