1996 Peugeot 406 — Performance: Very smooth power delivery, the turbo isn't a kick in the back, more of a surge. Brakes very nice, handling was nice and grippy too. Build Quality: Fair, usually Peugoets have a lot more electrical failures. Appearence: Very Nice. Cost of Ownership: Approx 30MPG so not too bad on fuel, insurence is fair. Fun Factor: Good fun, was a good drive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Smooth, Comfortable, very quiet, quick.

Cons: Notchy Gearchange.

The Green Mobile — This car did 350000 miles before it blew up. It still drove to the scrap yard. It was a solid car and was fairly good on diesel. It was not a fun car but a good work horse. Dont knock um till you try one.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good alround car

Cons: Not to pretty

Ok If You Can Afford To Mend It If It Goes Wrong — Didnt have much acceleration on it but it was a tough car until the camshaft and fan belt went at the same time! cheap to run compared to what i have now! overall i miss it, it didnt look much but it had soul.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: All about the soul... even if it was french

Cons: Faults Galore

Basic Car — It was a reliable car... took me from the place A to B every time with no problems. Basic car with basic accessories. Seat warmers never seem to work in this model. Some kind of manufacturing problem...? Otherwise it was a good car.

Pros: Looks good even today...

Cons: Seat warmers never seem to work in 406... in any of them :)

Peugeot 406 2ltr Glx — for a 2ltr its not the fasted car in the world or indeed in its class. but it drives like nothing else in its class, its fantastic, it holds the road well corners fantastically and the brakes are good and strong...its so reliable and tough, its so much fun to drive and it looks so good in a very simple understated way. which is also how u can discribe the interiour. it has a nice user friendly dash and has practial little touches here and there...like a little cubby hole to put ur pen on the center consol. build is exceptable but not fantastic but apart from problems with the sunroof nothing has fallen off. all in all its quite a cheep car to run...havent had to spend out on anything in particular apart from the middle box and the petrol i give it is used well. with a good compromise in performance and economy its ashame peugeot dont make cars like these any more. it proves that beuty doesnt have to mean radical. i would definetly recoment this car to anyone who would listen.

Pros: fantastic  to drive, good looks, nice spesification, reliable.

Cons: no hatchback compromises overal practiality, and build quality could be a little better
