“Everyone should try one...the last great Peugeot hatch!!”

Written on: 05/06/2013 by Benjisb6 (3 reviews written)

Had one of these for about 3 years and had a hoot with it. Very reliable, always started first time and I no problems at all with it mechanically during the time I owned it. All I ever needed to do was replace the tyres and brake discs/pads which had worn down through normal wear and tear.. The bodywork looks good, however will dent if the wind changes direction. The 2.0 litre engine means big road tax and insurance, even for a 30year old, but Ive always wanted one of these so I sold my old… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/10/2010

ive had fast bmw three series and driven a number of other high performance cars and can seriously and honestly say that my 1998 5 door xsi is the most fun i have ever had behind a wheel. got it with 66'000 on the clock and in pretty much mint condition....:-). corner stability is brilliant, nippy if u have it at the right rev range and they look well smart when polished up. would recommend an xsi to anyone IF it had the right history records… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/08/2010

i have a 97 306 xsi and had it for over 3 years now. I love this little car,it looks great, handles well, (thanks to the taution bar) the fule economy isn't that great but it is a 13 year old 2 ltr so all things considered i think it does well. Urban driving drinks fuel with constant gear changing but on £30 it'll take a car full to south wales and back!! Peugeots have a few faults like the heater matrix or radiator then there's the standard for british roads on any car like shocks and exhausts… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/04/2010

I have had my 3dr 306 xsi 2.0 16v for about 6 yrs now, i changed the exhaust and air intake and thats it. The car has never let me down no matter what the weather. It's a quick hatch back and excellent on handeling as it sits low. Surprisingly spacious inside. Absolutely love the car, only bad point is the it's not practical if you have a baby seat in the back, surprise surprise that's what you get for a 3 door car. I would recomend this car to everyone. Not to be offensive, but if you have… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/03/2010

Bought XSi for £6k in 2001 with 60000 miles: now 150000 and still going strong, fast and in amazingly good nick. Engine fantastic: only concern is have spent a fair bit on peripherals under the bonnet (AC, Power steering, radiator, alternator) - although on reflection that was mainly a blip about 5 years ago, when I came close to selling. Back in 2010, everything still works except passenger-side heated wing-mirror.

Had been thinking of replacing this summer (2010) but, having had a good look… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/10/2009

Well, i have owned my 306 xsi for at least 5 years. Had 3 VW golf gti's 5 Audi coupe and quattro's and various other BMW and german cars. Im sorry to have to say that my 306 xsi has been and still is the most fun to drive out of all of them without a doubt! I dont know exactly what was wrong with other folks 306's here on this forum but its giving me 40mpg on a run and about 27 urban. Never had a fuel consumption issue, never had any reliability issues.

The ONLY vehicles i have ever spent… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/09/2009

Well I have owned this car for almost a year now, Had 92k when i bought it and now has 100k. This xsi has never let me down! Started everytime cold or hot, For a 2.0 16v i think the fuel consumption isnt too bad and it handles well and is quick for a 11 year old car. Back legroom isnt great but it is a 3 door hatch. boot is a good size and it has all the toys, aircon and electrics, etc. Overall Peugot 306 is a good car for me… Read Full Review

My little Peugeot 306 2.0 XSi has to be the best car i have ever owned......and i have had a fair few. It has never let me down..still only done 54000 mls and interior still looks new, despite the dog and the kids i taxi around. Was a bit sluggish for a while, but changed wheels a couple of times ( 17's slow it down) 16's with low profiles are amazing. had new cat, middle box and cleaned it through with redex!! Now pulls and rags around like sh used to. Was never a pug fan before, but she won… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/08/2009

I recently bought my Peugeot 306 2.0 XSi and so far i think i have a great little car, its pretty quick to sixty, handles really well and it makes a lovely noise that makes you want to go faster and it has good amount of space for my daughter and her buggy (keeps the mrs sweet) fuel consumption is a bit harsh but on the otherhand i didnt buy a 2.0 and expect 50-60 mpg. my friend owned the car before me and i know he has had problems with the shocks mainly on the rear having them replaced twice… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/08/2009

Awful car, wouldn't have another one if it was given to me for free. I wouldn't suggest aPeugeot 306 to anyone other than someone who is looking to attract police attention. 206's are much better and look far less 'I think im a gangster with my clubland music'. Was impossible to find a decent enough spare part when I had the car for only a week which is why I got rid of the damn thing! Before I bought it I would have liked to have known it would drink a lot and that it is as quick as a… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/11/2008

I have just been doing a bit of reading, as 2 of my friends have bought Peugeot 306's. One of them bought an XSi (the 16v) and another, the GTi-6.
I have driven both, and the GTi-6 was not bad, however I was not impressed to much by the XSi, I did expect more from a 2.0 16v.
I own a few cars but my daily runabout is a MK3 Astra Sport with KONI's, etc and I fitted a C18XE engine I had laying about (1.8 16v from GSi). Have a few small mods to the engine. But I was surprised just how much slower… Read Full Review
