I have had over 30 cars since 1976 and this has to be the most comfortable as the seat is so adjustable, and I suffer with back and hip problems but have found this the best so far and I have had Vauxhalls, Fords, Volvo's, BMW, Mitsubishi, and Landrover and Fiats, so if you have pins and needles and cramp and neck problems you need to see a GP not another car… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/11/2008

My Peugeot 406 is twelve years old, in that time the only parts replaced have been tyres, brake pads and a timing belt at 70k. To be honest I think its been the best car I have owned. The cars handling and ride are both top notch. There is no rusting on any of the body panels. Everybody laughted when I bought the 406 but whos laughing now. Most people I know have owned at least three cars whilst I have owned this car… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/03/2008

The Peugeot 406 looks nice and when going it runs nice, but to have spent over £600 in repairs over the last 8 months I honestly can't see how this car has anything good about it. They are expensive to run, juicy and expensive on tax and insurance. All the mod cons on mine barely work and with an 01 model you would expect a bit better from Peugeot on the whole… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2008

Had a 406 for 7 years, never broke down, always comfortable and reliable, drives as well now with 150k on the clock as it did with 15. I'd have another any time, but would go for a 2 litre or turbo diesel. The most comfortable car I've ever driven… Read Full Review

“I've had my Peugeot 406 1.8LX Rapier for 6 months now,...”

Written on: 15/01/2004 by MattUK (1 review written)

I've had my Peugeot 406 1.8LX Rapier for 6 months now, and travelled over 15,000 miles. I'm convinced that I've done severe damage to my back and neck thanks to the appalling driver's seat; this has to be the most uncomfortable car ever designed. I now have permanent neck pains and pins and needles in my right leg. I've also heard similar complaints from other 406 drivers.

With a ride as uncomfortable as this, it's hard to find anything good to say about the car at all, although to be fair… Read Full Review

Redrebo's Response to MattUK's Review

Written on: 27/06/2007

I would like to comment on the fact that the 1.8 is a small engine compared to the 406's size, but it is not a bad bet at all. It performs better than a 1.4i Honda Civic and, while not being moderate on fuel consumption, it can still cruise at speeds exceeding 180 kph. With this car, I was able to somewhat catch up with a 2.0 GTI Golf at 'breathtaking' accelerations: it was a bit hard to catch up but once the 406's revs kicked in above 3.5k, the 406 had a little bit of an advantage. You might need some time to 'adapt' to the gearbox to find the best compromise for you between response times and consumption, but if you want prompt responses then you have the push the engine, and sip your fuel tank dry... And the engine can take moderate amounts of abuse... The car's fifth gear is the slowest in responding, and for a front wheel drive, the 1.8 is an OK car for a family driver, or calm, smooth drivers. If you are more demanding in terms of performance, then the 2.0 or the 2.2 would be the engine I would opt for, and fuel consumption should not be that much greater either.

Written on: 14/01/2004 by gillian (14 reviews written)

I had the Peugeot 406 1.8LX Rapier for a weekend as a courtesy car. I drove it once and didn't get back in it as I felt so unsafe. The gear stick felt as if I was stirring soup, there was no power and when I stopped the car it seemed to rock like a see-saw. Why would anyone spend their hard earned wage on this?… Read Full Review

“In the 3 years I have had this car, I have never found...”

Written on: 16/11/2003 by Illuminatio (1 review written)

In the 3 years I have had this car, I have never found a comfortable driving position. I now have persistent pain in my right leg due to trapped nerves, and I get pains and pins & needles in both legs when I have been in the car for about 10 minutes - tough when my job means I have to spend many hours on the motorways.

My neighbour have five cats. When she throws the empty cat food tins in the recycling bin every night, I hear the same sound that I hear when I close the boot lid of the 406… Read Full Review
