only 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...

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...

Cheap insurance Quick acceleration

Load 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...

My car had 45k on the clock and had two owners, i had driven my mothers car the same model and was impressed by the acceleration of this car, especially in...

“My 306, What a car!”

published 09/08/2007

Petrol is the 'Perfect Car'.

Diesel sounds like a tractor.

Hello everybody. My first 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...

“Versatile and well equipped!”

Good affordable quality

Insurance 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...

“A beast of a car”

published 19/01/2006

Very good looking, gives you great street cred

Can take a bit of maintaining

I 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...

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

High insurance for young drivers

I 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...

its brilliant

turns me into a girl racer

As some some readers 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...

Reliable, sturdy

Air bag light comes on, wind screen wipers jump

I have had my 306 for more than 2 years now and have never had any real problems with it. It goes well, is easy to drive, very comfortable. But it seems to be the small ones that niggle most...... The Air Bag light, is now consistently on, although it has been to the mechanic and to the Peugeot...
