    I had a peugeot 206, W reg, 4 door 1.1 and had no problems at all with it.
    Traded it in for a Ford Focus Zetec, if this is your first car I would recommend the peugeot as it is cheap to run, cheap tax and low insurance.

    Thanks! Its not my first car, been driving for 6 years.I need something bigger than a corsa (what I have now) for me and my daughter, cant find a focus anywhere and peugeots seen pretty nice

    I don't like Peugeots. French engineering, stupid design decisions. Cars are very subjective, brilliant for one is terrible for another.

    I can't believe you can't find a good Focus, Fiesta, Corsa, or Astra. I think you just need to look harder!

    Sounds like your budget is too low, if all you can find is poor condition in your price range.

    No I want to spend about £4k. I have been looking at 2002 onwards in focuses which is quite a healthy budget I think

    why?



    seen it on watchdog, the bonnets can fly open - caused by a faulty catch

    yeh sorry that was another car then I realised so I changed it! Lol I was not quick enough!

    Peugeot = Pants

    French cars = cheap plastics, bad reliabiltity, poor resale values, expensive repairs.

    Better off going for a VW polo, golf or Vauxhall corsa.

    mines an 06 new shape, so maybe mines ok :-D

    Check out Toyota Yaris and Corollas.
    Very reliable, cheap to insure and run.

    You cant go wrong with a Renault Clio.

    Drove 2 of them from brand new to 100 000 miles plus on the clock and very rarely got any problems with them. Great cars.
