    Icon5 PUG 206

    Hi All

    I'm in the market for a Pug 206 and wondering what are the crucial things I should be looking for when purchasing a 2nd hand one.

    Looking at 2000 to 2002 models, either the XR or XT.

    Can't wait to get one!!

    Cheers

    Firstly welcome to the board.

    I haven't bought a late model car in years but if it were me, I would make certain that:

    1. it's a one owner
    2. it's got log books with a full service history
    3. it's been garaged all its life
    4. it's got low mileage
    5. it's got a warranty which hasn't been voided


    I'm sure others here will add their criteria - but that would be my starting point. If it failed any of these I wouldn't get emotionally attached and I'd move on to the next one - (easier said than done but you gotta be discliplined). There's plenty around and you should be able to pick up a bargain no probs.

    Hope that helps. Let us know what you find.

    Thanks Graham
    The ones 've looked at so far have been pretty good. The items you've identified above are spot on.

    I was more concerned with wear & tear or notorious problems fellow 206 owners have encountered since their purchase.

    For instance, are there any signs of abusive driving?? Noises I should be looking out for or how the suspension should be handling.

    Benely can i ask about how much you would like to spend?

    Because my old 2002 XT is for sale at Regan motors at Balywn. And being the previous owner of the car, i know how good nick it is in, because i looked after it very well, it has low kms, full service history, and a couple of nice extras. Its done 29400kms they want about $21900, which im sure you could bargain down a bit. http://www.reganmotors.com.au/usedcars.html

    Go to the link at scroll down to it, it is black in colour
    Hope this helps.

    (ps no i am not getting commission for the sale )

    Its probably a tad out my price range. I'm looking bout 18k MAX.

    But thanks for the heads up none the less!

    Beside's purchasing from a dealer I would expect to pay at least 1k+ more than a private sale.

    Ideally, i'm looking at a later 3door XR in black or silver. Not interested in the 1.4L.

    I've been looking for the past month and I guess the 'one' I haven't found.

    regards

    Benton
