Awesome To Drive! — Handling is awesome around corners. A little torque steer. Revs well out to 7000 rpm. 1st gear very tall, up to 70km. Parts can be expensive if the wrong things break. I have the Gti6 model so the 6th gear helps for highway cruising, and the fuel consumption for a car with that much power and performance is good with city driving getting 9.5 litres/100km on average. A fun car to drive all round.

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

Pros: Handling and Acceleration

Cons: Cost factor of replacement parts.

306 Workhorse Rewiew — cheap cheap cheap. Thats whats good about my lil ol 306. being a catergory 4 write off it was cheap to buy, its less than 170 a year to insure, it returns a fairly good mpg and whilst not being in the very cheap tax bracket it isn't too bad. and spares are cheap too. not that i've bought many as it hasn't broken down since i got it 4 1/2 years ago. cheap cheap

Pros: reliable and cheap

Cons: bereft of bells and whistles

Perky Pug — It's a cheap and cheefull pug, which is economicall and fairly sporty, without costing a fortune to insure. The parts are cheap and it's also easy to fix.

Pros: economical, quick (for a diesel), handles very well.

Cons: no split fold rear seat and boot is fairly small.

Big Old Barge! 1.9 Diesel — Not amazingly quick, but will still go. Big boot and, not bad all-round space. Good for a few hundred thousand miles! even if you have to replace the engine!

Pros: Will tow a caravan, seems to go on and on, with the right attention

Cons: Many little problems.

Great Car, But Had It's Problems — This was a great car to me. I loved this car and I really hope to track it down again one day. It had it's problems which led to it being sold, but I'll never forget this car.

Pros: Looks great, very comfortable, everyone seemed to like it.

Cons: Fuel problem, a lot slower than it should have been, french.

It Took Care Of Us In A Near Miss Due To The Great Handling. — Amazingly fast compared to my Xantia, it was a smaller car with a turbo attatched to the same 1.9 diesel engine. Good for getting around and plenty if boot space.

Pros: Fast and economical

Cons: My head touched the roof

Awesome. — Performance - 124kw/165bhp for a 1000kg 2 door hatch. Build quality - lacks a little, a few things have broken and had to get replaced. Appearance - for a car built in '97 its still got the looks, not over the top asian, but euro styling and sportiness. Cost of Ownership - no serious problems over the 2 years I've had the car, buy alot of Peugeot parts from the UK, so its quite cheap. 60 litre petrol tank is about $75-80 to fill, and get about 600km from one tank.

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

Pros: The appearance and performance - something different!

Cons: Little things breaking, expensive parts if you don't know where to look.
