I have just bought a Peugeot 206 1.4 Hdi, from 2003. i have driven it and i like it a lot. Like a peugeot the ride is smooth, and comfortable. i don't have any words about the mpg, stunning :D with 10 euros of diesel i can do 170Km in a city drive. The heating inside is heavenly, i have driven myself in an audi A4 2.0 TDI, and i doesn't have that kind of heating, it's like a bath thub :D (read more)

I bought this car when it was three years old I have now owned it for seven. It now has 75,000 miles on the clock. Out of kindness recently I have just treated it to a new cam belt and the bits that go with it. It has given me no trouble at all. A very reliable and economical little car, very easy to park. I keep it well serviced - oil, filters etc. My husband changed the cam belt for me and while working on my car he complimented the engine saying how well it had been manufactured. ... (read more)

I was looking for a car with great mpg and after a few weeks of learning the engine and using hypermiling techniques I managed to hit 80mpg. The only downside is the drivers seat. The driving position is so terrible I am going to either have my seat set back 3-5" by moving the rails or have a bucket seat installed. It has made the tendon in my knee get inflamed due to the cramped position. If you are after a great economic car and are under 5ft 10 go for it, if you are taller, the seat... (read more)

I bought this car on eBay for £2400 and read loads of reviews like these to see if it is any good. The main positive is the unbelivable mpg, when you get a feel for the car you can easily hit 70+mpg even at fast speeds. This comes to my main negative, speed, from standing start it is almost painfully bad. When you get going which thanks to the turbo it does cruise at 80 mph the rumbling starts at 90 mph but you shouldn't be going that fast anyway! This is the most reliable car I have... (read more)

We have a 206 van 1.4 HDi on our fleet, first one we ever had usually fords, mercs etc, i have to say its surprised me, we bought it on 62,000 its now done 208,000 miles, in all that mileage we have reqular oil and filter changes, a cam belt, alternator, tyres & brakes as you would expect, the only major issue we have just had was the gearbox lost 5th gear, we were still doing 1000 mile a week in 4 th gear until it was replaced last week. 60+ mile to the gallon, cheap runaround, for what you...

This is about a Peugeot 206 1.4 litre, LX, 3 door.
Basically all the positives written in the other reviews are all right,
but I'll just skip to the negatives as they're more interesting.
Got the car in an October, in January I needed to replace the drive shafts, next the fan just stopped working so it would over heat every time I drove for a certain amount of time.
And the main problem that I've found with it is that it absolutely HATES the cold.
Any morning when its been quite cold it... (read more)

the peugeot 206 is v. economical (does up to 65 mpg!!), looks ok, and is very reliable. cheap to run, reliable, good performance (considering engine size - 68 bhp)
interior is not as stylish as exterior, and not that much space for rear passengers (mine's 2002 1.4 hdi LX with 3 doors).
excellent car to drive around the city and country side, but doesnt feel that fast on the motorway. (read more)

I have owned my Peugeot 206 1.4LX HDi for not far short of 2 years now, bought it when it was 3 years old with 28k on the clock, it now has 59,500 and so far its been brilliant. I bought it from my local Peugeot (Portfield in Chichester, West Sussex) main dealer and they have been brilliant. So far no major problems just a couple of minor niggles all of which fixed quickly with no fussunder the extended warrentee they gave me with the car, and they always vallet the car when they're done....

Overall a very good car for city or longer hauls. Fuel economy very good, quite easy to get 500 + miles out of the small 50 litre tank. Surprisingly nippy to drive with good acceleration at all speeds. Have had it for 6 months now with no problems whatsoever. Trim is a bit plasticy in parts but otherwise is fine. (read more)

I was looking for a city car with low running cost, but that was not a total bore to have. I have always liked the looks of the 206, so this helped.
This car has great mileage, low emisions and is not expensive to buy. My car came decently equiped, airconditioning, electric windows, central locking, power steering. Build quality is good, but I wish the dashboard were made of better plastics, as it hard and not nice to touch.
Performance wise, this car is quite good actually (remember it... (read more)
