    it's the other way round, to be exact. it's the the quaint US regulations (designed to keep foreign cars out) that screwed peugeot. inspite of the ugly us bumper bars on the 505, they still managed to rate the 505 as unsafe; whilst in australia the 505 has been classified as the safest medium sedan, based on actual accident data.

    that's why the protected american car industry is slowly dying (reminiscent of the british) whilst peugeot is the second largest seller in europe.

    don't despair Damian. Peugeot still hasn't pulled out of US completely, they just don't sell cars. Rumour has it that they may be back about 2004.
