Zest 3 1.5 diesel

AdvantagesWell constructed and finished

Disadvantagesnot much room in the back

"...of the mileages I cover. With Peugeot I have in general found maintenance to be straightforward, reliability is good, and economy is very good. I had two 205 diesels, both of which were very good. Then one day I saw a low mileage 106 Zest 3 diesel. When reviewing a car, the opinion will of course depend on the owner's experiences with the previous car. I can say that the 106 is better in every way than the 205. I have so far covered just ..."

Good Fun, and safe.

AdvantagesCheap, nippy

DisadvantagesSlow to pick up speed on motorways

"We owned a Peugeot 106 1.5D Graduate for a year and it was excellent. My wife had it to commute to work (100 miles per day) in Germany and it got hammered up and down the autobahns every day. We covered 29000 miles in a year and it never missed a beat. The fuel economy was great, particularly considering the hammering it got. We even took it to Spain and brought it back full of wine. On the day we drovw home I covered 1080 miles in 18 hours which ..." Read review

wee tank

Advantageseconomical and reliable

Disadvantagesno power steering

"I owned a Peugeot 106 XND for 6 years. Throughout this time, I had no trouble with it whatsoever. The only reason I traded it in when I did was because I had rather stupidly put far too much oil in it and damaged the engine (a mistake never to be repeated!). I found this to be a great little car. It was extremely economical. My journey to and from work each day is only about 30 minutes and I only had to go to the petrol station once a fortnight. ..." Read review

Don't buy a prius, get a 106

AdvantagesFuel economy, Reliable, Cheap to maintain.

DisadvantagesIt's French

"...other than it's your basic Peugeot affair. It is a bit cramped in the drivers seat but once you've adjusted the seating you should be ok, I'm 6ft. The "girls pedals" aren't a problem either, you soon get used to them. People always say French cars are rubbish but this car feels really solid, I put mine through hell and she never lets me down. It has that diesel feel that you get when you're in a van. I've owned many cars from Nissan micras all the ..." Read review

Unremarkable Small Car

AdvantagesCheap, limted 'fun' factor

DisadvantagesNoisy Diesel, Peugeot Interior, Cramped

"...the cabin is the usual Peugeot standard, it looks drab and unremarkable. The 106 isn't the safest car in it's class either which is worth noting if your going to ferry kids around in this car. There is a new 107 just on the horizon which promises to be a great deal better than this model. I'm sure the petrol variants are much better, and the GTi looks like a bargain. As a 2nd hand buy the 106 probably makes some sense, in petrol form anyway, I ..." Read review

Want a reliable car? Then this is for you!

AdvantagesCheap to run, Very reliable....

DisadvantagesBit slow when eccelerating......

"...much use. It comes with standard Peugeot Immobilser which you can change the code on anytime you like, you can also change the code for a short while, like when you take the car into the garage , so if you dont want to give them your proper code you can change it for a short while. All this is explained in the owners manual. The tax on the car is cheap only £110 for the year, cheap insurance group. Because this car is a diesel it will last ..." Read review

Pug 106 XND 1997 facelift

AdvantagesEconomy

DisadvantagesSpace

"Here we go, First Review! I currently live in Portugal, Diesel is 30% cheaper here than Petrol, So an obvious choice is Diesel. I commute 110kms per day, round trip. I purchased my 106 about a year ago, and have covered 25,000 miles since then. It now has 80,000 mile on the clock. PRO'S It has lived up to all of my expectations, and more. Excellent reliability, tyre life & fuel consumption. It normally does 600 miles on a tank! Which ..." Read review

The best thing to come out of france.

AdvantagesCheap , Farmer-Proof, Basic

DisadvantagesIt could do with a 406 hdi engine, Watch this space!!

"The pug 106 is a wee dream to own. Before it I had a Seat Toledo, another fine car, but I decided to go out under my own name in insurance, Dangerous ground for a young fella like myself iin Northern Ireland. The wee Pug is a great motor. The diesel engine is pokey enough if you need it and as easier on diesel as a bicycle (nearly)! Mine, a 1998 Look plus, was bought for £690 a few months back with 81000 miles. Admittedly theres a few bumps and ..." Read review

106 1.5 Diesel, OK car

Advantageseconomy, speed

Disadvantagesquality, ride, sound

"Got one of these a a few months back and din't keep it for long at all! unfrotuneately it really wasn't to my liking, so back to my fiat 55s! yay! The 106 was on a P plate with 84000 miles on the clock, Diesels remember are workhorses and will no doubt clock onto 200,000 miles with ease! thats the engine, the rest of the car may have something to say about that though, The steering ball joints are very weak, in my experience and both broke! The ..." Read review

Peugeot 106 1.5 D Get a good one to start with.

Advantagessupremely economical- generally very reliable.

Disadvantagestinny, sluggish, insubstantial, some jobs are difficult.

"...on the larger turbo diesel peugeot engines, but with no temperature gauge fitted (why so the french do this?) it is definately something to be aware of- they can and do blow, shown by overheating (the first you will know is when the warning light comes on by which time it's too late) oil in coolant, coolant in oil, misfiring etc. These are overhead cam engines using the usual rubber timing belt, this needs to be changed at the recomended intervals ..."

Diesel why not?

AdvantagesFuel economy

DisadvantagesDearer to buy than petrol version, Must have a Diesel MOT

"Diesels? Smelly and noisy? Those are comments from the past. The 106 Diesel is noiser than a petrol car but not significantly so. the noise difference is most noticeable at idle but you become accustomed to it. Better still ask a friens after a few rides can they notice it? The 106 is a small car and the 1.5l diesel supplies a good power to wieght ration but is no racer. It is highly economical. 50mpg is routine. Diesel is no longer much ..." Read review

Practical simplicity

AdvantagesReliable, fuel economy, cheap insurance, great value

DisadvantagesNot the best for features comfort and handling

"Before you go on to read this review i must explain how every car review tends to reflect the writer's own experiences rather than an objective view. And i think this car is great. Diesel is the way to go for fuel these days until developing technology discoversan even more efficient fuel for motor vehicles. I live in rural lincolnshire and for that reason i tend to have to travel a longer distance to get to my desired location than the average urban ..." Read review

Pug 106 1.5 Diesel: Zest 3

AdvantagesEconomical, cheap to run and own

Disadvantagesleaky sunroof

"When I was looking for a reliable car that was cheap to run and one that I could afford that was also comfortable and good to drive, I opted to buy the Pug 106 1.5 diesel. Having read other reviews of the car, there was no contest: and it has lived up to all the good reviews. My car costs about £40 for a full tank and I can get up to 550 miles to a tank so I was very impressed with this. I have had my car for 18 months or so, and I have done ..." Read review

My first car

AdvantagesEco power!

DisadvantagesNo turbo!

"This is my first car, being 18 my friends laugh at me for having a diesel but I don't care cos it is such a good car. I drove to Swindon to see my brother in it once which is 160 miles from where I live, a lot of it was motorway driving and I worked it out to be around 70mpg!!! This included doing 105mph in it a few times (couldn't help it, there was a porsche that needed overtaking). I put £10 diesel in it last week, that lasted me a week and ..." Read review

fast 106...down hill car???

AdvantagesEconomical and cheap to run

Disadvantagesslow, dangerous at roundabouts and junctions.

"...diesel geniouses at peugeot.. What peugeot forgot to do was stick a little turbo in it to help it up those steep gradients and help it pull out at roundabouts and junctions intime not to get hit by that 45ft jugernaught thats steaming round the bend.. Dont get me wrong when your going down the hill its great because you can build up speed for the next one. This is what i feel the car lacks behind in. I owned a 106 xnd for 9 months and thought ..."
