Underpowered Beauty (2.0l) — Bought this car almost brand new in '99 and owned it for three years. I bought it for the design and hadn't even test driven it. what a sore mistake... I bought the 4 cylinder 2.0L which gave (if I remember correctly) around 140hp!!! Ridiculous... The V6 sounded much better and had "more" power (still not enough under 200hp!) Too bad because, other than that, the leather was beautiful, finish was ok (although they still used a lot of cheap plastic back then). Stroke of back luck... I don't know but mine was unreliable as crap and I had issue after issue... so much so that I got rid of for a fraction of the price I paid for, just to get it out of my sight. Sad...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Beautiful design by Pininfarina

Cons: It's a Peugeot

Nice Car For A Nice Price — Nice to cruise in but not to race, fast enough to kick the hell out of a Mercedes C350 and good looking car for an afordable price. If you like it, go for it you won't regret this nice Peugeot.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast, powerfull, beautiful and cheap

Cons: Build quality sucks

Ok — It is overall pretty good build quality, and a cheap car to own. god space and driving comfort. it is a 1,8 litre engine / 117 hp, so it's a little slow on acceleration and topspeed. I want a bigger engine!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfort, space.

Cons: Acceleration.

Peugeot 406 V6 Manual 1999 — This is a 1999 Peugeot 406 with a v6 engine, manual gearbox. It has everything from electric seats, to automatic windscreen wipers. What can I say, the performance of this car is just amazing, driving this on auto pilot, and just sit back relax it a very comfortable seat, you just have to try it, it really is an amazing outstanding car. One of the best from Peugeot so far.

Pros: Driving performance, engine, mechanical build quality, comfortable, cheap, nice neutral looking car, lots of trunk space, plenty of space and comfy rear seats, very silent, and so on and so on...

Cons: Some of the electronic things in this car is not very well made, so it might break down at some point. The A/C  doesnt have a long life, and might aswell break down at some point.

Peugeot 406 Hdi — Very economical - has averaged 6.1l/100ks over the time we've had it. A couple of electrical niggles (but it is french after all). Wifey would love a new 407 hdi but you can't get manual ones here anymore. Ours has after market leather too which is very nice. Lovely car to drive long distance and does corners none too shabby (for a family sedan).

Pros: Economy, looks, handling

Cons: French electrics

Peugeot 406 Hdi — The 2 litre HDi peugeot 406 was good-looking and very economical, the most i got from a full tank was 850 miles which was incredible. It wasnt very reliable though, giving me fairly frequent problems, including rear suspension problems which caused me to put it in a hedge. It went down-hill from there so i had to get rid of it.

Pros: Economy

Cons: Reliability
