Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Peugeot 406 estate?
The electrics are the most common cause of complaint. Pay particular attention to the central locking (sometimes the boot won't lock) and the indicator stalks, which are known to be dodgy.
Check all the toys (air-con, electric windows and mirrors, sat-nav, audio system etc). Later cars tend to be better, but take nothing for granted until you've seen it working.
