What used Peugeot 306 estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Peugeot 306 estate?

With the range stretching back to 1997, prices are rock-bottom, especially if you go for the 1.4-litre. A good one won't be too expensive to run. Economy is impressive for a petrol engine at 42mpg.

The 2.0-litre petrol is best avoided thanks to its fuel economy of 31mpg. The 70bhp 1.9-litre non-turbo diesel returns 45mpg, while the 92bhp turbo unit is one mpg more fuel efficient.

The 90bhp, 2.0-litre HDi turbodiesel is the most fuel efficient at 54mpg, and its insurance is very reasonable, too. All diesels need to have an annual oil change, though. Peugeot dealers charge slightly more than the class average for service/repairs, but rates for independent experts are lower than for most makes.
