My Peugeot 406 has only just done 29,000 miles for a 2001 year. Need some work on it, but nothing too expensive or stressful! Definitely proud to have that car! (read more)

I have had my 2000 V6 manual 210bhp model for 3 months and love this car. I have driven BM's most of my life and had a choice between this and a 535i sport - thank goodness I chose the 406. I smile every time I get into it and every time I put my foot down. The only concern is I think it has the wrong springs on the front shock as they creak every time I go over a bump. I have done an 1100 mile trip to Scotland and back and I did it on 2.5 tanks of fuel - not bad for a V6. I will keep this... (read more)

I own a V6 one of these. It's not let me down in almost 3 years. It has the sleek lines that Pininfarina designed. Even 10 years on after the first one was launched, it looks better than most of the cars on todays roads, it hasn't dated a bit. (read more)

A great car, and so economical with a top mpg of 16.7. (read more)

I liked this car from the first time I set eyes on one which was in my workplace. I saw it parked outside and had to have a look. On seeing the Pinninfarina badge on the side, I knew it was something different and nearly fell over when I saw the Pug badge on the back! The only thing I'm not so keen on mine and I would assume all 2 litre's are the same, is the short gearing in top-about 21mph per 1000rpm. Makes driving it much over 70 sound strained. Yes, I know you shouldn't do more than 70... (read more)

Like a few others, this is my 2nd Peugeot 406 3L V6 manual. The first was a 2000 which was a company car, and now I'm on a rare 2003 in Solstice Gold, one of the last to be made. In between I owned a Jaguar X type 2.5 , which was horrible.
Unlike the other reviewers, I had no problems with either vehicle, and being a sales rep, drive 35,000 miles per annum.
I frequently park in public car parks etc, and on returning to the Pug, think, damn thats a good looking car ! I have had hairy builders... (read more)

Other then the normal wear and tear and servicing not a single problem with the Peugeot 406 Coupe. Always had Peugeots and always will. (read more)

So far it has done 40,000 miles in four years.
It has needed... New battery. New exhaust. New Engine management computer (£1100). New set of six coils (had to be towed in). New speedo and hand brake warning switch.
And many other smaller parts.
A typical Peugeot!! (read more)

I have had a Peugeot 406 Coupe 3.0 V6 SE for three years. It is a 1998 model in Diablo Red with the tan leather interior - the most deisrable combination apparently.
It has now done 60,000 miles with virtually no problems at all, except usual maintenance and a replacement radiator.
For a front wheel drive car it handles fantastically well, due to a very good chassis. It feels nimble, and the engine is willing and responsive.
I bought the car because I wanted a coupe, but only the 406 has... (read more)

I have owner two Peugeot 406 coupes - both 3.0 V6s. One 18 months old, one from new.
Both cars offered so much in terms of styling - far more distinctive than the all to common Audi TT or BMW 3 series; I am sure these are great cars, but you see them everywhere... the 406 coupe is something altogether different.
The older car had the original 3.0lt power unit developing 193BHP, the latter having a revised unit with 210BHP. Both were smooth and wonderfully versatile thanks to 24 valves... (read more)
