Most reliable and comfortable car to drive

Bought this little gem for only $50.00 lol. 186,000 kms. Previous owner was told by a mechanic the head gasket had failed. After driving back home it was found to be only the rocker cover gasket. $24.00 later. I have owned this car for three years now. Have driven alot of cars in my time. Prefer this than a Toyota or a Nissan any day. The ride in this car is so smooth and fantastic on fuel. Was so amazed I bought two more from the auction's with kms from 77,000 to 86,000 with minor damage. All auto's like my blue one. Do my own services on all of my vehicle's. It now has 207,000 kms on the car. Uses no oil or water. As you can see in the last photo of the exhaust. Show details

Why can't Peugeot make a new car as good as the 306?

Bought this XT hatch way back in 1996 and still driving it now in seventeenth year of ownership and having travelled 378,000kms. Original engine apart from head gasket replacement at 245,000kms. Never any problems with manual gearbox or clutch. Original exhaust. Interior now getting a little worn and paint is fading.
Great to drive and very comfortable particularly on long interstate trips. Great visibility both front and rear and so much better than modern cars. Excellent fuel economy as low as 5.8 litres/100kms on a trip to Queensland.
Not much. Have had problems with the control arm bushes. The replacements have not lasted like the original ones. Requires premium petrol. Show details

Good

This is a great little car for all types of drivers, being a small car it makes little challange getting it to those tight parking spaces but you still feel that there is plenty of room inside. The rear seat can be taken completly out making it very easy to transport different types out item, great on fuel getting down as little as 7.5L per 100km. The 306 comes packed with features witch make it feel later model luxury Australian car.
Compact size car but still full of features, good vision while driving, great fuel economy.
Parts and service are very expensive due to the european make Show details

Excellent

I will never part with my 306 Cab. It is 10years old now and still looks like a 2-3yr old car. It has not dated. The inside i have updated with the extra wow factor things from 2002 models like silver dash, updated airbag with silver peugeot logo etc.
The most reliable, and sexy little car i've owned.
Parts and repairs are to expensive when owned in Australia. Very cheap for parts in Europe though.

Good

This a very practical car for a variety of drivers. It has a range of feature which are able to compete with newer models. Drives very well and is easy to park in tight spots. It has a great fuel economy getting down to about 8L per 100km. It is extremely comfortable and roomy inside, considering the size of the car. The back seats are removable which makes it very easy to transport items. A very reliable vehicle.
Great little car to drive. Very comfortable and easy to direct into any spot.
Not a great towing capacity. Parts and service can be expensive due to european make. Show details

I find that my radiator fluid evaporates quickly. Is this common ?

No, this should not happen. My 2002 model has never had that happen and I live in hot NorthQueensland so check for a leak.
