Built by men who drink wine at lunch...
...that's the point about the 206. I still think it looks great and it handles well (remember, it's not a sports car) and it's economical but boy-oh-boy is it an unreliable machine. I bought one new and had to have the power steering system rebuilt twice inside the first 30K, a rocker cover had to be replaced at 45K (but that can happen anytime to any car, in fairness) and the brake pads and discs had to be replaced at 50K which is poor for such a light car.
Still looks good, handles well, good fuel economy.
Unreliable, awful clunky gear change, expensive to service, Sydney dealers are a bunch of money-grabbing morons.
