1989 Peugeot 605 Review
Peugeot 605 2.0l Manual — To be honest this was a terrible car (I had the 2.0litre model) way underpowered for the size of the body shell. But it looked gorgeous and the seats were soooo comfortable, the interior was very nice too but not very high quality, Mine was a manual and all I can say is it was like trying to select a gear when the gearbox was actually a knife in a huge bowl of jelly. Overall it was a nice car, but the quality of the dealer servicing was abismal, my sister found the same with her 306 not matter what you took it in for they always seemed to find enough other bits wrong to charge £1000, my Volvos and Audis were much more resonable service costs wise
Pros: Comfy seats, gorgeous looks
Cons: Dealer Servicing, Build Quality, Reliability

The 605 was a fantastic car. It was huge - loads of room for driver and passengers and a massive boot. Ideal as a family car. Only downside was the fuel consumption - it had an 80 litre fuel tank f... Read More
Lots Of Car For Little Money
It's a french car, so nice gentle suspension, not very sporty and not too reliable on the electrics side. Vey comfortable to drive and nicely spacey seating. A true bargain barge, cheap to acquire but... Read More
