How expensive are Peugeots to service etc?
Posted 20 August 2011 - 07:51 AM
First up, I'm sorry if this has been covered already, if so just link me to the thread.
I just sold my 180 and I'm looking at getting into something a little different. All I wanted was a small run around car that had a bit of style and was fun to drive. Long story short, I have settled on a Peugeot 206 GTi. They are pretty cheap these days and with relatively low kms. Heard they are a ball of fun to drive as well.
Now my only question is, how expensive are they to service/fix if things go wrong. I'm not a complete r'tard so I can do all the basics (change fluids etc), but if something major was to go wrong, how much in the red would that put me. I'm assuming a fair bit more than your standard Pulsar etc.
On that note, is there anything in particular I should be looking out for when I go and inspect one?
Was also playing with the idea of getting a MK3 Golf, but most of the ones I have found have 150,000kms + on them. Whereas the majority of 206s have under 100k. No doubt the Golf is better looking (slammed. BBSs. drool), but the kms are a turn off.
Anyway, any advice would be greatly apriciated!

Don't let high k's bother you. Just make sure it's got good service history, the timing belt and water pump has been replaced at every 90,000klms, and that it's not an auto.

Nah definitely will be a manual. They are hard to come by though.. Maybe im too fussy. Budget is around $7000.
Still torn on a MK3 or Pug GTi though.
I just dont want to have to get a Corolla or SSS or something. Need a change.
