I have a Peugeot SW 306 XT(TD +AC)1.9.My problem is that even the engine is in a good shape,i recently have problem with the rear bridge.The mechanics here,even i bought 2 new amortisators,say that they don`t know how to fix it,means to record it.That needs to rise little bit highier.Can you tell me how they can do it.
Generally ive been realy happy with my car so far. The petrol is no too bad on these cars which is why i switch down from my bmw.
I got a 1.6 306 and i have to say im not too impressed with the power of the car for a 1.6. The other problem i have is they tend to rev quite high when going over 70 mph so these cars are not good for longer trips.
However for a run around and for me going to college all the time its a good car to have. It looks good on the outside and they are soft on the insde.
The car has some nice features such as auto window whippers and air con.
For the price you pay for a 306 you cant realy go wrong as they are a cheap car to buy but that also means they dont hold value.
would never put someone off of one of these.
The peugeot 306LX automatic. Due to a cockup at peugeot the car we got delivered had more going for it than we expected, we got a choice of a CD player, air-conditioning or an electric sunroof. We chose the sunroof, but when the car came it had all 3, needless to say we didnt complain. The new look 306 models are all very similar looking on the outside so if you put a set of alloys on a low spec model, it will look like a top of the range model. We did this and it turned a nice looking car into a very nice looking car. We got the car very cheap on MOTABILITY. (£450 quid with £250 cash back - for W-reg 306 quite cheap you might agree!!!!!) The equipment in the car is superb - TWIN AIRBAGS - ABS - AIR CON - 4 X HEADRESTS + RAIN SENSITIVE WIPERS(they switch on when it starts raining - very cool!!!!) Being an automatic the car is not very economical + plus the auto gear change isnt as smooth as it could be + theres a bit of flat spot in the acceleration between 40+50mph in fourth gear. Another bad point is theres not much headroom in the back for tall passengers, but I dont care coz i'm driving!! On the positive side the handling and suspension are excellent, the boot is massive + the stereo system is nice with remote controls on the steering column. It will be quite hard for peugeot to make any big improvements on this model.
We got our last car a 306 and had great service from them. We got advice from friends to shop around and they were the only dealers to give us a test drive in the exact car we wanted. Why should you be given a different model to that which you want to buy>? As for after care we have had one free service and unlimited advice when required. When we decide to trade in, about 2 years, we will not shop around but go directly to our local Peugeot deealer.
