ProCheap, not a bad looking car, fuel efficient

ConsLow equipment models, slow

Having my previous car written off, I had to find another car pretty quick for work. Normally, Peugeot would have been the last manufacturer I would have turned to! I saw my 306 advertised locally for £800 with 6 months tax, and almost a full years MOT, so it seemed like quite a bargain. Having...

In July '99, when the parts for the battle-damaged Fiesta on the driveway began to cost more than the car itself was worth, it didn't take long before it's parking space was occupied by a Peugeot 306. With a need for reliability and as new a car as possible, I was rather surprised to find a P reg...

“IS THE FUEL GAUGE WORKING”

published 11/02/2001

Profast ,economical

Consnone

Is the fuel gauge working was the first thing that came into my head after i had driven over 100 miles in my 306 turbo diesel. This was one of the many suprises this great little car had in store for me over the next 2 years of owning her. I paid some £5595 for her from a diesel specialist garage...

I have always admired the 306 since launch. It's a smart and functional looking car, still looks good today. I bought my secondhand 306 DTurbo over 3 years ago, I loved it that day and I still love it every time I drive it. Here's why... It gives me almost everything I want from a car: on days...

“Not my choice of car”

published 06/08/2000

ProHandling

ConsNoisy, slow, uncomfortable, cramped, bad dealers

Initially, when I was told I was being given a 306 diesel estate as my company car, I was quite pleased. However, after many miles my opinion was becoming formed. Slow (needs the turbo - desperately), uncomfortable, cramped cabin, very noisy (even for an oil burner), and dealers who really do not...

“Good For Granddad”

published 11/06/2003

ProLow Fuel Consumption, Good Handling, Reliable

ConsSluggish, Noisy

I have been driving a 1998 306 1.9 LXD for two years and in that time there have been very few faults with it. The most major being a leaking shock absorber – no doubt due to driving too fast over Manchester’s swiss cheese roads - and this was repaired at reasonable expense. On the last MOT the...

Cons1.9 so fall outside cheap road tax!!

After receiving a slap on the wrist over a year ago for speeding (along with a hefty fine and point i may add) I decided it was time to trade in my spoty Honda Accord 2.0i for a sensible car. The words boring economical and Diesel(heaven forbid)sprang to mind when I thought of low insurance and...

The 306 D Turbo is a nice car to own, and I agree with all the points in the previous review. I could not possibly recommend it to anyone, though, due to the appaling build quality, and the abismal attitude of both Peugeot dealers, and Peugeot UK. The car was bought brand new in December 1997...

Being a disabled person, i can only praise, Peugeot for the service that i have received with my 306 1.9L Diesel. The car is bought through the Mobility Scheme on Contract hire, it runs on air, i'm getting an average of 8-9 miles per litre of fuel. Its ideal for the disabled person with limited...

Consbrakes not as good as they could be ?

I've had my D Turbo for 18 months now after changing from my Citroen ZX (another good car). I'd moved to Diesel a few years ago after spending too much on petrol with my Golf GTi. The Citroen was a nice car to drive, but I wanted something with a bit more "poke". The D-Turbo is it ! It's quick...

I bought my peugeot in October 2000 and have been very pleased with the performance which i have got from it.As it being a diesel everyone thinks that it will be slow and that it is more of a older persons car but it isnt.Once the turbo kicks in on it your off,you get plenty miles to the gallon...

ConsModest performance

I've had a 306 diesel for more than 4 years now. Despite its compact size it has more room inside than any other car in its class. I challenge any car manufacturer to make a more comfortable spacious compact fimily car than the 306. It is among the most frugal on fuel consumption, I get about 45...

I bought one of these after writing my previous motor off. Group 5 insurance? You betcha! For the grouping this is one of the fastest motors about. The torque is great for getting out of tight spots at low speeds, put your foot down and the turbo kicks in to huge effect. Even cruising on the...

“Diesel do nicely”

published 11/07/2000

ProStyle, handling, fuel economy

ConsReliability, build quality, interior, seats

The 306 has a justifiable reputation as a driver's car, which makes the popularity of the diesel option initially hard to understand. But it is a lively unit, with plenty of torque, and relatively free of the hi-rev breathlessness that afflicts most turbo diesels under acceleration. It comes into...
