Advantages: Deceptively good head/leg room, fuel consumption
Disadvantages: oil leaks
I own a G plate Peugeot 205 GL. On the whole the car has served me and my son very well. The five doors make it ideal for a mother with young children, and the boot space is adequate to accommodate a pram/buggy, and a reasonable amount of groceries. The car gives an excellent mileage to the gallon. The compact size and the not too heavy steering make it easy to park. It also has adequate head and leg room and the front and back, which as a 6 footer I can testify to.
The downsides to owning such and ageing car is the typical Peugeot oil leak which tends to develop as the years go by, and the annoying fact that it is 24cc over the lower tax disc rate!
