peugeot 206s! advice wanted! girl rather clueless about cars lol! Watch
i love peugeot 206s and thats definitly what i want for my 1st car but can any1 tell me wot kind of things to look out for when wantin to buy a 2nd hand peugeot?! and any1 had any mjor problems with them?
My ex girlfriend went to view one ages ago at a Pug garage which had a 100 point check. She went and got the AA down who did their own check and found endless faults.
Its an OK car. Its just that when they start to go wrong, they really go wrong. Otherwise you may end up having no problems. Its Peugeot as a brand that should be scrutinised.
Anyway, I've had a Peugeot for 18 months now, it's had absolutely nothing wrong with it and I've put 36,000 miles on it *proud*, overall it has 123,000 mile on it. The only time it went wrong was when it was hideously overdue for a service and the brakes seized, it cost £20 to fix
They're great! Get one. My brother had a 206 and it was a fab car.
Peugeots = trouble
Don't get a Peugeot, they're terrible!
Ignore him, he speaks out of his arse.
Obviously a biased Pug owner. Cannot say the same for me on the other hand
And Miss Muck wouldn't know about her maintenance bills, as I bet someone else takes care of them. You better ask her father
She's high maintenance.
Why do you own a peugeot if you blatently despise them so?!
Actually, save me doing another thread and being as you'll answer it anyway Walshie, what's a Toyota Corolla like?!
I mean one of those, not the old shape! Minicab....Pfft...Imagine me in a minicab!
Ummm don't know anything about them, someone I used to work with had one of the newer ones and never complained about it. That one looks a bit dirty though....! filth lol
Even the Toyota Corolla VVTi 190 (T-Sport) is said to be dull. The 190 engine figures in a couple of other models such as the Celica & Elise. Basically everyone talks about this engine as being the nuts, but the Corolla gets the most criticism out of any hot hatch I have known.
The interior is like a hard alluminium dash (copy) which is straight and slanted towards the driver. I actually really liked it when I got in one. However, if feels really big and even a 190 engine was going to suffer in a beast like this, hence the criticism. But i really liked the interior aprt from the seats, which you definitely needed upgrading to full leather.
The old Corolla was also a Cab. It was a lot lengthier. All the Kosovans seem to drive them these days. I odn't mean that to be offensive, but it seems like their favourite car.
It's an owners club. In particular, this link will be handy: http://www.peugeot206club.com/thecar...uspension.html - It details the various known problems as regards to the suspension and breaks. If you look in the left hand menu, you can see various other problems related to the electrics, interior, engine & transmission & bodywork.

The car was puling to the left and he took it to Peugeot who said there was nothing with it and you should not take your hands of the wheel, he then took it a small local garage who told him the drive shaft was leaking and the tracking was way out.
The car also feels a bit flimsy, the seat adjusters are very cheap and feel like they will snap in your hands.
206s are good cars, build quality just lets them down a bit.
