1996 Peugeot 309 Review
It Would Be Nice If Fewer Old People Drive This Care — performance: 0-60: 15s (i'm being generous :D) braking: not good handling: scary at "hight speed" build quality: quite good, don't take a lot of money to be repared and doesn't brake that often. appearance: well it's not an alfa romeo, but i like how it looks, especially the GTI16 version, sick! cost of ownership: one of the cheapest petrol cars, if the engine was rebuild it would probably consume and average of 4-5l /100km, and body parts are easy to find and relatively cheap. fun factor: that depends on your definition of fun :D
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: not that much realy, i just like how it looks and how it would look if it's fully tunned
Cons: the performences, but then again it's not bad for a car with that age, engine, milage and original engine parts

Mechanically it was reliable, except the hand brake cable which once or twice froze in the cold Finnish winters. It also didn't rust much, which for a French car in the tough Finnish climate was very ... Read More
