That's appalling! The 306 must have had engine problems or something? The HDi's aren't fast but a Ford Transit van? Really?

A friend owned one a few years ago and I can safely say it was capable of out-accelerating a Transit van. Not a GT-R, but yes, a Ford Transit was no match. I would have thought only 1.1 litre shopping trollies boast slower acceleration than a commercial vehicle... Dunno

All 3 where the same, no management faults showing on mine, had a new MAF on it. Some of the transits are 140 bhp so go well!
Mine wouldn't make 3 figure speeds, the other 2 did, just. Like i say, stage 1 map and they are a different car, i found mine painfully slow though, and it's not that i drive a fast car normally, i have had many daily runners.
I'm not dissing them, i really liked mine, its why i bought my 6, i should of mapped it, TBH.

Bought my hdi a few months ago, very clean astor grey done 115k paid 1200 with full history years mot 6 months tax. felt slow as hell off the line 1st and second were appalling ok once moving though. Bought a k&n and a chip that takes it to supposedly 120bhp and loads more torque. Best 70 quid I ever spent on a car! Had made it much more drivable can actually overtake things now and pulls 95 up steep hills when requested to Big grin. Some go better than others standard anyway. I actually felt like enough power compared to the 6 till I supercharged mine now it feels awfully slow again lol.
Still beats a mates 1.6 focus at any speed so must go ok Wink.

Once chipped though if you boot it with town driving the mpg drops noticably to 40-45 motorway is 700 miles to a tank though so 55-60 mpg Big grin.

Exactly. Bought mine coz its cheap to insure and run and fix and a good looking car that I can chuck round corners. Though have to disagree and say my 1.9 dturbo was deff quicker with the fuel pump tweaked and a boost controller. Went as well as my mates xsi did. Black smoked a goodun where as the hdi doesn't.

I think he means in standard form. They're certainly more refined and an all round better engine

I've done 170000 miles in mine in 7 years and she's never given me any non wear and tear related grief. Just had it's first clutch too. Has been running a stage 1 map for over 50000 miles with no issues.

Best car I shall ever own in terms of reliability, owes me nothing. I service it with genuine Peugeot filters and follow the schedule. Smile

HDi is definitely more refined and a nicer drive, the xud's pull harder in my experience.
Mine didn't give me much trouble in reliability, only a LP pump, never let me down otherwise Smile

I did have a 90bhp Hdi Meridian 5dr once, lovely car but jesus it was slow. The 406 hdi 90bhp Rapier estate i had later felt much more responsive and it was better on fuel. Luck of the draw i suppose.

The 306 always had what i thought were noisy injectors, something none of the other 4 hdi 406's i had suffered with.

I drive a Transit on a daily basis and they're actually quite quick off the line especially for such a big vehicle. It doesn't seem to suffer turbo lag at all.

I used to average 400-500 out of a tank in mine. Doing mainly short journeys. They are good on fuel. Not amazing on motorway work, mine wasn't anyway. Still ok, but doing 40 odd mpg on a motorway run @ 80 mph.

Picked the HDI up sat morning,



Met john, very nice guy. and the car is great! Fitted a drivers door handle when I got home along with a stereo. It has a few liitle problems but nothing major and all will be sorted in time.
It just doesn't use any fuel! Smile
