Greetings. New to 406 but not to Peugeot

Post by Odysseus » Sun Feb 07, 2016 5:36 pm

Greetings. Just got a new (to me) 2002 406 GTX HDI 2.0L auto estate, and love it. In fact, I have not liked a car as much since the Volvo 740 GLE I had back in the late 1990s. I have signed onto PeugeotForums, but hope that folk with the same model will be able to introduce me to the specifics of this car.

I look forward to making your acquaintance.

It reminds me of all the stuff I liked about my old Volvo 740 GLE. It's incredibly comfortable to drive, and the various features just work. While I fancy I'm still young enough to own a small sports car, I like the stability, the solidity, and yet the manoeuvrability (especially in terms of turning radius) of the 406.

I could probably be more technical, but you'll have to give me a few more weeks to make a list. I tend to ride my bikes more than I drive.

Above all, I came to the 406 because I was told the diesel was an excellent engine. Otherwise I would never have thought about it. But I am very glad I did.
