We bought a low mileage Peugeot 206 HDi top of the range model with the 2 litre diesel engine. Having this large, high performance diesel engine makes this a very lively and enjoyable car with good road-holding and a very flexible high torque engine even at low revs: at 57 mph it hasn’t topped 2000 rpm. For insurance purposes, it is regarded as a small saloon car. The power steering works well and while taking much of the weight out of the steering, it is positive and leaves the driver feeling that he is fully in charge.
A couple of negative points to be taken into account when buying one of these cars second-hand and which could be costly, are the steering swivels on the front suspension and the replacement timing belt when its time is up. The swivels are contained on large sections of suspension which are completely replaced at some £90.00 for the parts for each side of the car. When the timing belt is replaced it is recommended that the water pump is also replaced because of the labour cost involved in gaining access at a later date. This is usually at about 70,000 miles or five years of use.
In spite of these negative points likely to arise on a second hand vehicle this top of the range model is very well equipped, comfortable and a pleasure to drive and very recommendable.
