Starting to get a little dated, Electrical Faults,...

I've had my 306 for a few thousand miles now, after a friend had one for some time, and I was quite impressed with the performance of this French "tractor." I took the plunge, and have bought a 1994 XRdt (with a whopping 162,000 miles), which was one of the higher spec models for its time, and...

Good

Very, very reliable and fast

Smokey!!! Plagued by electrical faults.

I've just parted with the 306 XRDT (L-reg) which I'd had for just over 2 years. I loved it to bits, but in the end the expense to maintain it and certain faults outweighed the positive aspects, so it had to go. When I got my car it had done loads of miles - when I sold it, it had 147500 on the...

Large interior, Economic, Quick off the mark

Doesn't like the cold

The Peugeot 306 is the predecessor to the new 307. I currently own a Peugeot 306 1.9 Turbo Diesel. I have had this car for the past 4 years and have had no problems with it during that time. When anyone mentions the word diesel, the first things that come to mind are noisey, smelly cars that are...

Satisfactory

Has a good heater and is fairly economical.

Where do I start?!?!

I normally go for high mileage German cars, but a few weeks ago, I needed a new car quickly and to cut a long story short, I ended up with a 1997 Peugeot 306 on my hands. It had only done 80,000 miles, so was a very low mileage car for me. Just to set the tone of this review in case you are short...

“306??? The BOY!”

published 18/03/2005

Handling, styling and fuel economy.

front tyre wear and turbo lagg.

In 2003 i decided to get rid of my peugeot 106 1.5 xnd because it was my first car and very slow and looked like an old ladys shopping basket. I looked around for weeks to determine what car i would purchase next, then on 26th august 2003 i spotted a little sparkley 1.9Dturbo sitting all alone on...

Last year i purchased a second hand red D Turbo R Reg (98) The car cost me £6000 and had just under 50,000 miles on the clock. I was lucky the last owner was the Valeting manager from the garage. (Honest) It was in mint condition and it also had the timing belt changed at 40,000. I was impressed...

306 dturbo not a bad car, goes well to be fair, i would say they are very unreliable on average i have a problem every week with mine, nice to drive and handles really well ( lowered 60mm) would have another one or possibly a HDI. All in all not a bad car ideal for a first car low insurance group and good MPG shame the tax is £100 for 6 months!

I've had my DT 306 TD fro 10 years now. 76 000 on the clock and it just gets more rapid. Not a boy racer at town speeds inless you want to wear everything down quickly but on the open road especially uphill it'll show the big boys a thing or two. Where else would I return 50+ mpg in town and 62 outside? Oodles of power on the motorway where you need it. Torque remains the same throughout the rev range. When youve overtaken just take you foot off and slot back in! Watch out for electric devices going wrong and sunroof leaks. Not the easiest to manoeuvre in small spaces but otherwise a perfect drive.

Added extras not so reliable.

I have owned the Peugeot 306 1.9xldt for over a year now and i havent had any problems so far! Not once have i broken down or had to have repairs just the general servicing. The fuel consumption is something to be proud of, although it costs a hefty £86 now to fill the tank, i can travel the 297...

“Peugeot 306 1.9D Turbo”

published 06/03/2002

Spacious, smooth drive, fantastic handling

Dashboard/interior rattles, smokey diesel

This is a fantastic car, that in my opinion is the best on the road. Don't be put off by the fact it is a diesel. Critics have slated Diesels too hard because they are sluggish, smokey and noisy. Well in all admission, the 306 D Turbo is smokey (when using a lot of torque) and the engine is noisy...

I have now owned a 306 Dturbo sport model for almost a year and i'm glad to say I am yet to be dissapointed. Essentially I looked at it because it was handsome and very cheap to run, however after driving it I realised peugeot's lion was roaring under this bonnet, it flies, it handles,its quiet...

“Nice and quick”

published 22/11/2006

Great nippy little car

Pain with only 3 doors

Since this is only my second car i was shoked at how much power a little car had. Saying this that was probably because my first car was a 1.4 escort. With it's 1.9 D turbo engine it's nice and nippy, and the turbo kicks in at about 2500 rpm. Mine is an 97 R reg and comes with air conditioning...

For a diesel this is a quick car. When the 306 d turbo first came out it was the quickest deisel around. Still keeps up with most cars today. The d turbo comes with a nice interior good seats that hold you round corners and yet they're still comfortable. Parts are resonably priced such as cv...
