306 Dturbo, Blaze Yellow — excellent mpg, comfortable for churning up motorway miles, had no problems in the time i owned the car think 3yrs.

Pros: good mpg, cost me nothing to run, never failed.

Cons: back in the day quite quick for a diesel but hey ho now, no thanks

Love It — stylish body very good handling, especially in corners the only thing i did to my 306 is that i replaced the suspension system to a set of german made KW coilover, with adjustable rebound damping. this made me feel much more confident during cornering.

Pros: it can gives you a relaxed sunday afternoon, or a thrilled country side drive

Cons: heavy fuel eater

My 306 Is Metallic Red, Not Gold — It is only my third car but is by far the best I have owned. It is a 1.6 special edition with half leather interior and except for the colour looks exactly like the model shown in the photo.

Pros: Good performance for a run of the mill hatchback and good looks despite it's age

Cons: I have had an above average number of faults over the 4 years that I have owned the car.

Funky Little Sports Convertible — Lively little cabriolet, with contrasting tan leather. Querky switches (like the electric mirrors). Nicely

Pros: Power hood, loads of boot space (considering the size of the car).

Cons: Heater matrix plays up, so heaters not always working

A Great Reliable Car That I Would Give Full Marks To If It Had Slightly Bigger Boot — The trim is a meridian so it has half leather interior and muti changer cd as standard.

Pros: Comfy ride, good on fuel

Cons: Boots to small for my pram!

A Great First Time Car — This car is a sporty car. Gaining good speed with its 1.4 engine. The Car is well built, sturdy little car, handles bends nicely. Very light on petrol nice interior in the car with driver air bag and adjustable seat, clean and accessible engine easy to navigate way around it The following is based on driving on Flat Grass lands Performance: The Acceleration on the car is very good building up speed nice and quickly and not having to rev the engine before changing gears. Breaking is alright its a bit hard to say because the test driving is not done on proper road surfacing. I will say that in this car you had to brake early if going at good speed. Handling on the car... is another tough tricky one because on several occasions the car had just skidded into grass when locking right. of course that's down to my driving. But otherwise i felt the car handled nicely on the bends even in wet weather. the weight of the car helps to keep it level. Build Quality: I'd say its well built in my opinion. Doors are good heavy doors. Has it needed repairs it does now. the exhaust seems to fill the boot which in turn fills the car with fumes. The electrical's causes a problem by leaking because of the Aerial right above allowing water to mess up the electrical's. Not really much rust on it which is great. no rust from natural problems only where marks have been formed. Appearance: Well i do like the car it is sporty looking and with a spoiler and the right body kit can look even better. back bumper mostly. The Seats are quiet comfortable with there semi bucket style. Dash i nice layout with the center console slightly angled towards the driver for easy access. removing the cigarette lighter would be a great place for a push button starter specially if your a lefty like me. Doors are nicely built and with most metal work covered up by plastic looks very nice. Cost of Ownership: Besides having to buy bits for it its not all that bad. Fuel is pretty decent on the 1.4 with about 9 liters getting you 6-7 miles. I dont know if its just the second hand bulbs i managed to get my hands on but the bulbs seem to be a bit of an issue blowing on me. and the fog lights seem to be a pain to get at to change. im sure you have to go from under the car to get at them unless they slide out. Fun Factor: Sporty car. fast and comfy which for the bumpy terrain its brilliant.

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

Pros: Strong car. Good handling on it.

Cons: can give some minor problems
