Ownership cost

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

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

Service intervals are every 9000 miles, so if you intend to use the car a lot you should budget accordingly, especially as engines can require a cambelt change every three years or 36,000 miles. However, to offset that you should be able to halve your labour bills by using an independent garage rather than a franchised dealer.

Despite the different engine sizes, fuel economy is fairly consistent. You should expect mid-30s on the smallest engine, falling to about 30mpg on the 2.0-litre.

According to Warranty Direct, the 306 family does have a number of weaknesses, including axles and suspension, brakes, engine and electrical system. So, you can expect to have to fork out for repairs.
