We have two, both 2,0 Hdi estates and both the same colour, in fact three if you count the 'spares dept' at the top of the field. I have been running them for seven years and will probably continue to until they either fall to bits or I can't get spares anymore. Not only do I think they are the best car Peugeot made but the 8 valve diesel is simple enough for me to keep going.

My wife fancies something a bit smaller, possibly a 206 or 306 but it will have to be the same 2.0. 8 valve engine which are pretty bombproof in the 406 so should last for ever in a smaller car.

I ran Citroen XMs for 15 years, they were very cheap and if anything went seriously wrong I would scrap it and buy another one although they were pretty reliable too and the 2.1 XUD engine very smooth and economical. Mine eventually rusted out and not more were obtainable at a price I could afford. I have the same approach to the 406 but I have only had one fail on me and that was due to water in the electronics, I tried to fix it but it could have cost a fortune and I only paid £400 for the replacement and that has done about 20k miles with very little trouble.

I have belonged to the Citroen XM forum for many years but as there are so few about now that is declining in membership as they have become collectors cars rather than everyday runabouts. Even the French Car Forum which is still probably the busiest one, receives less posts than it used to. Cars are that complicated now and most people seem to send them to the garage to be repaired so forums are declining or becoming specialist as the XM Forum.

My cars are ancient by comparison :wink: . The is no way I could borrow money as we are on a state pension and even that doesn't cover our living costs, people keep offering loans but I haven't found one yet that doesn't want paying back. :|

I still have the mighty Dogmobile 2, (but sadly no dogs any more).
My bro has a 53-plate 110 exec estate and occasional access to spares from his 2.2 exec, (the Bangor Banger), now resting in the green fields of France.
Prospective SIL next door has a 52-plate 2.2 GTX estate.

Mine will eventually be replaced with a small 7-seater, hopefully not for some time.

Nice idea Doggy 8) ,
My folks have started doing a similar thing.
But with the car in town I can't help but think what's the point
How's it any different from towing a caravan :? , except for the cost.

As for the 307 or something similar, two of my local Dealers parts managers
Have advised me to stear clear of anything with a 7 on the boot.

I've not had too many issues with my 307 over the last 4 years/20k miles apart from the engine (1.6hdi). I do have pre facelift 2004.

Nothing compares with the 406 for reliability so its a hard act to follow but I think that any Hdi Peugeot is probably more reliable than most diesel cars out there, with the possible exception of the 1.6 Hdi.
