What should I look for in a used Peugeot Partner Combi estate?
The Partner Combi is built for tough use, and chances are it will have had some, whether from kids, dogs, or those trips to the tip. Look out for scuffs around the load bay and rips in the upholstery. Some of the plastics don't feel of the highest quality, so they may have suffered some wear, or even given up altogether. The glovebox lid, for example, is a weak point.
The mechanical parts are tough, though, and proven in other Peugeot vehicles, but you're still best off looking for an example with a full service history.
The rear suspension is likely to need work after 50,000 miles, as the car may have suffered some pivot wear. Another age-related fault to watch out for is that the sliding doors can start to stick.
In 2002 a recall of some diesels attended to water getting into the operating circuit, which affected engine and brake performance.
