    What age? In all a cracking car but older versions could suffer from an engine cut out when it got too hot.

    Agreed apart from a ridiculous driving position good cars to drive.

    They're french so made of paper check all the bodywork.

    Check CV joints and ball joints as these are a bit weak.

    check its not leaking any water into it anywhere, have heard of them letting water in through no apparent avenue.

    Thats all i know about em lol

    Agreed, bad seating position! I still have my Quiksilver, and the pedals are offset to the right which plays havoc with my surgically corrected back.
    Build quality is pretty pants, but it is a good drive and is good looking!

    Not sure what year it is, she's got a golf mk3 cab at the moment so i'm sure she will notice the build quality difference. 206 should be a lot quicker than her convertible tank though.

    I'll look out for those problems though, cheers guys.

    Used to be a frequent user of www.206info.co.uk a knowledgeable site!
    The GTi's are quick for a 138bhp car, and do handle ok, plenty of lift-off oversteer like the 205's and predictable understeer when pushed to the max, not that I ever did with mine of course!

    Well she bought one, £2245 in the end after a bit of haggling. Nice little car performance didn't impress me though and the pedals where too close together lol. But perfect for her.
