PEUGEOT 208 1.2 3CYL COURTESY CAR REVIEW

Do people actually spend their own real money on these things?

Can't be worse than the 207.

Aside from being underpowered, does it feel like you will die if you take any corner faster than 30mph?
i.e. does it have as much feel as shagging a 90 year old in a vat of castor oil?

How about not having a sig at all?

It's nothing like what you did last night with your grandad, no.

His grandad's dead, you insensitive bastard. That's why they keep him in a vat of castor oil.

There is a special offer for £149 p/month for hire of car/tax/insurance etc

Not bad if you're under 20/

:o That is very cheap if true. I pay £800 for the Bravo insurance a year, if it was on finance it would be a no brainer to do that, very cheap!

This offer existed when I was looking at buying a car myself but on the 207. Back then it was all a con as you had to be over 25 and have 3 years NCB and only 1 speeding offence in the past 5 years to get insured for free etc etc etc...

Only on the 1.0 VTi though.

0-62mph - 15.9 seconds

Makes me feel quite good that I got 2 years free insurance on my first car many many years ago, a 'wicked red' Saxo VTR fresh out of the box. I took a stupid punt and bought it a month before test day (mind, I passed, thank fook) but the deal was done as a provisional licence holder. Think year one was cost a fraction over a grand.

Make imperfect leather brand new again.

I remember the Saxo offer, I think they shifted a lot of cars based on it so clearly it works, though I do wonder if they made any money out of it!

The 208, hmm let me see, the usual over-servo'd breaks so its nothing-nothing-face in windscreen, clutch has a biting point of approximately one metre, low powered engines I can deal with but this example has a flat spot between 2.5-3.5k rpm that must be a fault as it's bl00dy dangerous. Feels like it will tip over in every corner there is so much roll, but it still crashes through every bump on the road. Boot only just gets the pushchair in it for the school run, the kids feet touch the front seats from in their booster chairs. The only good thing is the touchscreen radio but I guess even poverty-spec new stuff come with that sort of tech these days.

Pretty much everything horrible about cars, in a car. Strangely I've read several glowing reviews about them! Must have been press specials :roll:

The retired teacher across the road bought one to replace his Corsa. The view I get of it meant I had no idea what he had bought for weeks. (As I was too lazy to walk over and look).

It was the GTI in EVO that highlighted the plastic "GTI" flashes on the C pillar that gave the game away.

£149 per month is very cheap for a car you only put petrol in!! Shame the car in question sis gutless gallic guff.

re touch screen stuff in cars.

ok, i get it for navigation and stuff, but using it to replace normal 'button' functions just because it looks nice is a bit daft really.

with a proper button you only need to glance over and once your hand is in the right place you no longer have to look what youre doing, touch screens mean you pretty much have to look what you're doing the whole time you're using them which can't be great from a safety point of view :?

how long before we get physical 3d tactical touch touch screens? :lol:

It was 1999 and mines was Black!

With the free insurance I was paying the same for a brand new car per month as I was for a fvcked 8 year old escort!

I bought a Ford Ka instead! Only 1 year free insurance although I wasnt paying all that much anyway. Even my AX GT was only £400 and that was mid 90s.

I have a City GO at the moment and I'm pretty impressed.

Sits nicely at 80 leptons on the motorway and seems to have enough power. Not sure about the hill start assist but otherwise it's well put together.

The lawn mower noise is quite addictive to :oops:

That sounds exactly like my mates 206 in every respect with the exception of the engine flatspot.

Also sounds like my colleagues Clio, too.

Are all small cars this crap these days?

Nope! The fester' is still going great. Sadly it just needs another 50-100 more bhp!
