Looking for Peugeot 306 Owners Manual?

The Peugeot 306 was launched in 1993 and lasted until the 307 was introduced in 2001. Estate versions even ran on until Summer 2002. Until the Ford Focus arrived, it was the leading family hatchback for keen drivers and it remains satisfying for those who enjoy life at the steering wheel.

Overall then, a fine used car if you buy carefully.

A five-door family car, that’s still amongst the medium range class leaders. It’s better than nearly all the more recent designs to drive and build quality has improved a great deal in recent years. So has the quality of materials used.

On all 306s, insurance costs tend to favour the customer more than you might expect; the cost of covering the car tends to be between 15 and 40% less than with any of its major rivals.

Facelift models from April 1997 start at about 1,800 for a 1.4L 3-door hatch, 1,850 for the rare 1.6 LX saloon (a good 400 less than the equivalent hatch), and 2,325 for the LX estate. Facelift convertibles start at about 5,200 on T-plates and you can also find hardtop-equipped roadsters from just under 5,000 on 97P plates.

There were also loads of special editions; among these the air conditioned Vivant and Meridian models are worth a little more than the standard LX.

Go for the latest car you can afford as standard equipment increased noticeably in recent years to compete with newer rivals. A drivers airbag was added for 1994 (you’ll identify these cars by the chrome surround around the front grille badge) and many post-1997 models have air conditioning which was a low-cost alternative to the standard sunroof. Avoid high mileage examples repairs can be expensive.

Pre-1994 models are prone to blowing out blue oil smoke; check carefully and avoid any such examples. Watch for electrical equipment failure, coolant leaks and uneven tyre wear.

Check for heavy clutches and ensure early cars have power steering because the unassisted system will give your arm muscles quite a workout around town. Try for XT or GLX versions; at this level, deadlocks were fitted for extra security and theres loads of extra equipment such as rear electric windows.

Peugeot 306

(approx based on a 1994 306 XSi) Brake pads are around 62 a set, a full headlamp assembly is around 87. A clutch should cost you 225, an exhaust system (including catalyst) around 550 and a radiator up to 135. A starter motor will be about 185 and an alternator 200.

Performance is rapid on all models. On the 1.6-litre petrol version, you can expect a top speed of 111mph and 0-60mph acceleration in 12.9 seconds.

At the same time, fuel consumption is over 30mpg around town and over 50mpg at a steady 56mph. Those statistics, however, don’t take any account of mid-range power the area where it really counts. Put simply, these are amongst the most flexible small family cars you can buy, petrol or diesel, and even a short test drive reveals why.

At the wheel, the driving position is close to perfection, the pedals and steering wheel just where you want them. The seats, too, are excellent, supportive on long runs and grippy through tight corners.
