What used Peugeot 406 estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Peugeot 406 estate?

A 406 estate should be financially painless to buy and own.

The cost of servicing is very reasonable, although maintaining the 3.0 V6 model will set you back a bit more than the rest of the range. Overall, you're looking at the same kind of money - maybe a little less - as a Ford Mondeo or Nissan Primera.

If unexpected repairs crop up, Peugeots are cheap to fix, according to Warranty Direct's data. They're also low on the company's list of frequent offenders, too.

Diesels are dead cheap to run. The 2.0 HDi models get nearly 50 miles from a gallon on the official average, the 2.2 HDi 43.5mpg. That plummets to 25mpg for the 3.0 V6 petrol, with the other petrols giving 33-35mpg.
