I couldn't say enough good about the Peugeot 106 Independence. Its 11 years old and has never let me down, I've wiped a foot of snow off it and its started and gone first time. Its nippy and it still not outdated (interior etc). next car 206 d turbo! Hard to drive with 5 people in due to the car already being low the mud flaps scrape the floor on bends (not any more they have been removed) =) (read more)

I bought my Peugeot 106 independance about 6 months ago just before passing my test. It's a wonderful little car. The only bad points i have about it is that during bad rain a few months ago i noticed that my sunroof was leaking, but with a bit of sealer around the aerial i managed to fix the problem and it has never let me down since. Another small problem is that the pedals seem very close together, i cant wear boots to drive it as they cover both the brake and accelerator. So a small... (read more)

The Peugeot 106 Independence is a fantastic car to drive overall. Ive added 15" alloys to my 106 and this has improved the already good handling. This car is very chuckable, any corner, any speed, or at least that's the confidence this car gives to on the twisty stuff, and so far after two years I have no reason to doubt its abilities. As for refinement, the interior is basic but for the £2200 I paid for my car everything is there. I have very few optional extras on the inside such as power... (read more)

My Pug 106 has quite a lot of extras for a car of its age and price. I've yet to meet anyone who has power steering, front fogs, remote central locking with there 106. It looks well 2, its fully colour coded and is finished in a nice deep metalic red. I've driven a lot of small cars that are similar to the 106 and ive recently bought 2 Vauxhall Corsas (for sale) to tell the truth, none of them were as quick as my 106. Theres really only 2 real problems I have with my 106
1. Lift Pump- My car... (read more)

I think the Peugeot 106 is a very good car and the Independence is a brillant first car. Let's be honest the more technical a car is by this I mean if it has electric this and electric that it's more that can go wrong. If you're at college, like me, you can't afford it when things go wrong. Hope this has been of some help (read more)

My Peugeot 106 Independence is amazing, great car is quite nippy and handles corners excellently, i've added some alloys, a spoiler and lexus lights, looks well smart, the car has good security, before starting the car you have to type in a pin number on a keypad situated near the handbrake, it also has central locking. Theres only one bad point that is the brake pedal needs to be fully down before it starts slowing down, I fully recommend this car to any one thinking of purchasing one. (read more)

The Peugeot 106 Independence has been my first car and was bought from New. I have to say its a fun car to drive and is great for a new driver looking to get from A to B. Its stylish and compact and although a basic car it has everything you would need for a cheap price. I have experienced no problems in the whole three years. I will be sad to see it go when I eventually decide to sell. I would recommend anyone considering getting one to just go for it. (read more)

The Peugeot 106 Independence is an ideal first car, set of alloys and a backbox on, engine totally standard, cheap enough to run and insure. Only thing I want to know, will the 1.1i on a 51 plate be a 16v? email me if anyone knows firstname.lastname@example.org cheers! (read more)

As a first buyers car the Peugeot 106 Independence City Car is great. Has all the good points a small car should have. The car picks up speed quickly and handles the road well. Although it has a small body it does feel spacious from the driver's perspective.
Brilliant for students as the peugeot is more desirable than a Ford. (read more)

This is my first car and I think its a great example of a small, town car, perfect for a first time driver. It is only a couple of years old but the breaks to me seem to be very sluggish with the break pedal needing to be flat to the floor before any impact is made. However, having said that, I was in a very bad accident last year and the car stood up to the impact extremely well. The police said if I had been in a lesser car, it would have been a lot worse.

I have had my 106 1.1 for 6 months brought it from new. Have had nothing but problems with it. Biggest being idling problems with the revs going up and down between 1000 - 3000 revs, and the boot leaking. Just wondered if any one else had these problems? (read more)

This car must have been designed by somebody who has never seen rain. The 106 diesel air intake is so low that in crossing a ford yesterday the engine sucked in water and I have been told the engine must now be replaced. This will cost more than the car is currently worth. So unless you live in the desert do not buy one (read more)

I hated my 106 when I 1st got it, but now I wouldn't be without him. He's nippy, fairly fast and has so much personality. He's great on petrol, takes corners like you wouldnt believe, and he just basically rocks. He's called Elvis and he really is the best car in the world. (read more)

i bought my Peugeot 106 independence last year (2001), and i love it. It's the best little car that i have driven, i have added alloys full escosse body kit and quite frankly it looks the dogs danglies. As far as the lack of speed, you obviosuly don't know how to drive the car to it's full potential. (read more)

I regret buying the Peugeout 106 Independence model because it lacks in performance. It is slower than any other car on the road and it isn't any faster at high revs. I purchased a GTI spoiler, added alloys, tints and an induction kit (no difference in performance). Still, all boyracers can beat me in their old bangers. My advise is to get a GTI. (read more)
