A Very Reliable Car And Cheap To Run, But Lacked In Power. — This car was very reliable and was good for long distance driving as it is diesel and had good fuel consumption. The peugeot 306 is a great car as a first car. When i first bought it, the paint was peeling of the bonnet but was resprayed and it looked much better.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It was diesel so it was cheap to run and a good first car which I learned to drive in.

Cons: Being a diesel car, it felt a bit sluggish and noisy compared to a petrol car.

Very Good Reliable Economical Comfy Car — had plenty of power quick from pull off very good on diesel handling wasn't too bad. very comfy long and short distance, boot size good size id say for a small family it would be a good family car, reliable brakes good, front buckets seats in red checkered and black outta edge,

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: like how it was good on diesel, boot wasn't too small very comfy to drive long and short distance, very reliable never cost me a penny.  

Cons: nothing

Was Right For The Time! — Fantatstically fun to drive, quite quick, but driven quickly gave it a bad thirst. Handling was fairly sharp, but badly let down by excessive 'scuttle shake' with the hood down, not much better with it up! Very stylish, even more so with hardtop in place & windows down, as looked like an attractive pillerless coupe.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: It was a great fun car!

Cons: It was really wobbly

Don't Mock It Until You Try It. —

Performance - all good, great take off with the 124kw. Heavy clutch is annoying. Turning right is a pain because the 6th gear stops the turning circle so U-turns dont happen often! Build Quality - annoyingly put together with torx screws, some dodgey french electrics. But overall quality is great compared to other small cars in the price range. The bodywork is really bad at attracting dents. Appearance - exterior is modern even though it's 13yrs old. The interior can be easily customised - able to paint the different console plastics and I've added red leds to replace the boring orange standards bulbs. Leather and alcantara work well and the seats are comfy and have lumbar supports. Cost ownership - everyone warns you away from getting a 'european car' because parts are expensive. However, over the two years I've owned the pug I've only had to replace the clutch which I imported and got it installed all for half the normal price. If you do the research, buy smartly, and find a good mechanic then you wont have a problem with euros. A euro car has heaps more style compared to a corolla or pulsar = boring! Fun factor - awesome car to drive! Great power and handling on standard suspension. Enjoy it every time I drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Performance and styling.

Cons: If you want to follow the crowd

Wonder Where It Is Now? — A right little diesel tank, unstoppable 1.9 naturally aspperated Turbo engine.. although by the time it was re-tuned it was a 2.0 very quick off the mark, very good braking system, and solid build.. Nice Imperial Blue as well pity i changed it...

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Solid like a brick on wheels

Cons: None

Poss best car i have owned, slight downside was it was a little low for me

Great Car — will, it's a great car with amazing handling but its engine is only 1.6 so it lacks power. But, next year I'm going to upgrade to 306 GTI-6, it's the real thing. I'm gonna upgrade my own. lot's of fun and satisfaction

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: need to drive to understand what is it

Cons: avoid small engines, they lack the power of german ones.
