I've had this car for over six years now and have found it to be one of the best I've ever owned. It's an early MkII fitted with the AL4 auto box. It needed new front coil springs and the a new radiator (standard weak points on the 406) shortly after I bought it, but apart from that it's been utterly reliable in all weathers.

Generally impressed with the car but disappointed with Dealers attitude. Typical UK main dealer, rude and arrogant.

Level of equipment is impressive for the price. (read more)

Before I start, this car is only available in UK and Europe. It is also the new shape YEAR 2000 model and not the older one with slighty different attributes.
We bought our Peugeot 406 in March last year. Since then we have experienced smooth curves that blow away the dumpy lines of Vectra and Mondeo, a lovely cosetting ride, a interior with the ambiance to match a 3-Series. Also, the car has lots of equipment including automatic air conditioning, electric seats and a CD Player. The 2.0... (read more)
