    Default What goes wrong on Peugeot 405 petrol wagons?

    Thinking about going to look at an early 405 auto petrol wagon with mid 200000ks.
    I've driven this motor/ box combination before in the Citroen BX wagon (which I suspect is lighter) when they were much younger.
    Not looked at Peugeot 405s before, so what do I need to check?

    Heater controls a common problem.
    Also, it is hard to imagine that the auto will have a lot of life left in it.
