My dreamy car

AdvantagesLooks Grrrrrr, front foglights, low miles cheap insurance cheap to run

Disadvantagesonly 90bhp, crap back middle seatbelt

"I used to have a peugeot 306 1.4 P reg mark 1 on about 120k miles. It was a great car, but bashed to bit falling apart around an engine that purred like a kitten. So when i wanted another reliable car I pursued the 306 again. I got my original P reg in 2002 for £1500 this time I was looking for an R reg Mark 2 at about 2 grand. My friend informed me of a 2001 X reg mark 3 at £2500, i went to look expecting high mileage. It was a gorgeous Meridian ..." Read review

Review of Peugeot 306 1.6LX

AdvantagesComfortable seats, quite nippy, nice styling,

DisadvantagesThirsty Engine, Small at the back, Electronics failure, mechanical problems

"I bought my car from an independant dealer for about £3500 which is not bad for the condition it was in, had fair mileage for its age just over 41,000 miles. My car is 9 years old when i bought it, it was near enough mint condition only had to get a replaced battery as the car didnt start but was courtesy of the dealer. It is an Automatic Gearbox, chose this as I prefer driving Auto and it was not bad considering that the car had 100BHP, I advise ..." Read review

306 1.6XS - sporty looks and fun to drive

Advantagesexcellent steering and handling; looks good

Disadvantagesnow feeling rather old; some quality and electrical niggles

"The Peugeot 306 1.6XS is a three-door model. I am reviewing a 1996 "pre-facelift" model. I was looking to replace my Ford Escort 1.6Si with something of a similar size that was fun to drive. I was after a car that was reasonably nippy, had cheap insurance and would be reliable for a weekly commute between Kent and Cornwall for several months. One of the cars I had in mind was the Peugeot 306, and specifically the 1.6XS model - an average model ..." Read review

X to the S

AdvantagesCheap insurance Quick acceleration

DisadvantagesLoad at motoway speeds

"I had a Peugeot 106 1.1 XN up to about a year ago and then I gave it to a friend of mine. So I started looking for a new car. I always wanted a 306 as my brother’s friend had one and I liked the look of it. So I started looking through the auto trader magazine and Website. I thought I struck gold when a saw a 306 XS 1.6 44K mileage for only £3500. So I got my mum to drive me to the garage took it for a test drive and bought it instantly. What ..." Read review

306 XS 1.6i nippy car only group 5

AdvantagesVery cheap second hand XS has good spec

DisadvantagesElectric windows on older cars

"...£80, do not go to Peugeot for this to be done, they charges you 4 hours labour and in total it comes to around £250 for a cam belt changes, choose your friendly local garage instead. This car has an electric sun roof and electric windows and a good four speaker stereo with steering wheel remote. The seats are the best feature of the interior as they really hold you in when cornering, and give a lot of support to your back. The boot is very ..." Read review

Versatile and well equipped!

AdvantagesGood affordable quality

DisadvantagesInsurance for young drivers

"The 306 has always impressed me as a good looking, value for money car. The value is increased at the moment with some retailers offering free insurance! To relatively young drivers this can resemble a sizeable cost saving. The ride is smooth as a result of the well engineered suspension. There are a number of engine sizes, but I would recommend the 1.6 meridian which retails around the 12k mark. Overall the performance on the 1.6 is good for ..." Read review

My 306, What a car!

AdvantagesPetrol is the 'Perfect Car'.

DisadvantagesDiesel sounds like a tractor.

"...ever car was a 1.9diesel Peugeot 306. Now i have a 1.6 Meridian 306. I first fell in love with them when my next door neighbour bought a light blue 306. It looked brilliant in everyway and from every angle. I got my first 306 1.9Diesel when i was 17. It was a super first car, cheap insurance and tax wasn't too bad either. It had really comfy seats, Electric Windows, Electric Sunroof, 4 Speaker sound system. Remote Central Locking PAS, stereo remote ..." Read review

A beast of a car

AdvantagesVery good looking, gives you great street cred

DisadvantagesCan take a bit of maintaining

"...am now on my 4th Peugeot 306 which may seem crazy but I just can't get enough of them, this will be my last......I think. The reason for my crazy buying of this car is that every now and then I think that perhaps I should try a different car as this can't be the best there is, I then go looking everywhere for my next dream car and find myself falling in love with another 306. I have the xs version which is just amazing, it has sports seats which ..." Read review

Quick review of Peugeot 306 1.6

"I have this car, i've had it for approximately 10 months, and although it was second hand, it was in pristene condtition when i purchased it, with only 40k on the clock. within 2 months problems occured, i had to have entirely new brake system on it, the fan and timer belt needed to be replaced, and to my surprise upon a heavy rainfall, my passenger footwell filled with water. Apparently either door seals or thegasket around the wing mirror are extremely prone to leakage. Aside from that everything is brilliant with this car. cheap to insure and economical

My pug!!

AdvantagesLooks good, enough space without being a "family car!"

DisadvantagesHigh insurance for young drivers

"...used to own the 1.6 Peugeot 306. On a Y plate, it looked good, inside and out, was comfortable, reliable and was pretty nippy. Half leather seats were good for wiping clean and the silver trim looked really good. Air-con, alloys, fogs etc were all nice little touches that made it into a really nice car. I had the 5 door version which meant it was really accessible, and with the included isofix it was easy for putting baby seats in, and safe enough ..." Read review

I GOT ONE...I GOT ONE

Advantagesits brilliant

Disadvantagesturns me into a girl racer

"...may know, I have a Peugeot 309 that let me down and died on me and have been virtually car-less for some weeks now. Fed up with diesels breaking down I decided to go back to petrol cars but I REALLY do like Peugeots. This is not a new model, in fact probably to some people, this would seem to be a banger, but it was all that I could afford and bearing in mind its age, is in pretty good condition, which draws me to the conclusion that if the Peugeot ..."

Automatic 1.6!

AdvantagesLooks good, very comfortable, handles well.

Disadvantages1.6 petrol is not as good as the diesel models

"This is the car that me and my wife bought for her to drive as I had already own a 306 1.9td and loved the car. She fell in love with the car on first sight, it a great blue colour and looks fantastic. Inside its so comfotable and there is plenty of room in the back for most people, I am 6 foot and find it ok to sit in the back even on a long trip. There is plenty of boot space too. As for the reliablity it is pretty good, we have had the car for ..." Read review

I like it....

AdvantagesReliable, sturdy

DisadvantagesAir bag light comes on, wind screen wipers jump

"...the mechanic and to the Peugeot garage, it is still there. A common fault I am led to believe. As my car was brought to the UK from Cyprus, various parts are different fromt those in the UK and have to be ordered in every time. Shouldn't all cars and parts be standard. The bumpers are plastic, and do not withstand hits very well. Temperature control is a great thing but the air conditioning seems to come on by itself, and fuel consumption seems ..." Read review
