ive had my phase1 Dturbo pug for 12 months now and it hasn't missed a beat nor had any electrical problems (touch wood) even though its done 165000 miles.
it starts first time every time even when it had 6 inchs of snow on her and
-10c last winter. its one of the best cars i've brought and yes it is showing her age but she still gives some modern car a run for there money and i can see myself buying another one if and when the old girl gives up the ghost but i can see that happening... (read more)

This car has been fantastic. I bought it when I was at uni because i needed something which would be cheap to run. It is group 6 insurance and very economical. I consistently get around 45/50mpg and that's a mixture of city and country driving.
People who bad mouth french cars reliability have probably never owned one. In the 2 years i've had it i've not had to replace anything apart from normal consumables and it's always started first time.
I have previously owned the 306 1.9DT which... (read more)

Most frustrating car I have owned, brought when it was two years old with 55k miles on it sold 6 years latter with 118k. Cheap to insure, service costs low but does need it every 6k miles and easy to get over 500 miles out of the 55 litre fuel tank. But over all ownership cost was completely unacceptable, despite being serviced on the dot had to pay 1000 ' s in repair bills. Had to be recover by the AA three times, I was on first name terms with the patrol man. The clutch was replaced until... (read more)

I have 250,000 Kilometers on the clock, 160 000 miles. Still looks good. I take good care of my Pug 306. Originally the car was a 1.9 aspirated. Did a good 200 000 kilometers, till the gearbox cracked. Till now I had to change a number of times engine mountings and front suspension arms. Roads in Malta are terrible. Changed engine complete with gearbox from another pug turbo. The rear suspension now is noisy now. I used to service photocopiers and delivered a big number of photocopiers with... (read more)

Being only 19 the dturbo is going to the best car I can get insured on (group 5) I think its a brilliant car its quick will do 0-60 in 10 or 11 secs and will save you in the pocket doing 45-50 mpg. Mines a bit of a poor starter in the morning, but I love this car I like how the engine growls and its great when the turbo kicks in I also love the sports seats:). Mines done 115000 miles and even though its dated now stil looks great and runs well. I have a phase 1 and prefer it to the later... (read more)

The Peugeot 306 D Turbo is a great car.
It's done 170,000 miles now and has never let me down. It's had a couple of new batteries but that is it.
I don't look after it and it's lucky to see any new oil in a 12 month peroid.
Hoping it'll easily bust the 200,000 mile mark... (read more)

I have owned this particular car for 6 months now, and have owned 3 previously - all petrol (1.4-1.6xs) and it is easily the best! Quicker than the 1.6, and feels more solid and robust. My present one is a new shape, as opposed to my old ones (phase 1) and I have to say that I much prefer the interior on the newer ones, whereas I feel the exterior on the phase 1`s appear more aggressive, and look meaner! The performance is great, especially now I have had the fuel pump opened and fitted a... (read more)

I have owned this Peugeot 306 D Turbo for a year now and it has never broken down. It started first time after being left for 2 weeks and with 103k on it now, it doesn't smoke and hasn't lost performance. Perfect low insurance car with hidden talents! Love it! (read more)

The Peugeot 306 is a really reliable car, I've had it 3 years and done only 40K (I bought it with 95K), all I've had to do is follow the service indicator gauge and get is serviced regularly. Nothing major has ever gone wrong (apart from a CV and a turbo ... the turbo was probably the previous owners fault as it was a hire car!) but it has never EVER let me down! The handling can out do a Focus easily and can keep up with the Corsa/Fiesta's/Saxo SXI's! rather funny when there screaming to... (read more)

Overall the Peugeot 306 D Turbo is a great diesel car, sporty looks with excellent mpg. I have owned my car for 5 years, bought it with 50k on the clock, it now has done well over 160k, still running with original clutch. Only work carried out to the engine has been to the head. Apart from that it has been serviced every 6k. These cars will run forever as long as you service regularly. Suspension bushes wear out quick. Then again I do drive my car hard. Solid diesel engines that will run... (read more)
