Looking for Peugeot 406 Owners Manual?
The 406 has been one of Peugeots enduring success stories. Following on from the much-loved 405 models, the 406 added a new level of sophistication and quality when it was launched in 1996. The early shape car was only with us for three years before Peugeot decided to facelift it. The late shape car we examine here, available in four-door saloon or five-door estate guises, has been a steady seller ever since.
As a used buy it represents quite a bargain, if only because the 406 is perceived by the trade to be not quite as desirable as more modern rivals such as the Ford Mondeo, the Renault Laguna II and the Mazda6 and even Peugeot would have to admit that the 406 cant match the all round excellence of these products. What it does offer is the sort of handling that Peugeot are renowned for, a shape thats stood the test of time very well and a reputation for quality engines. Tracking down a decent used 406 shouldnt be difficult. Its just narrowing down your choice.
The 406 cabin was revamped as part of the second generation changes successfully as it turns out, giving it more of an upmarket feel. This has been achieved by a whole series of small but significant measures: resculpting the controls, improving the dials, using better quality materials and adding classy touches like the chrome trim now used on the handbrake and air vent buttons. The seats are better too, with more adjustment, higher backs and improved support. The driver also now benefits from an armrest and steering wheel stereo controls. Where the 406 didn't need changing was in the chassis department. The original model was the most engaging family saloon you could buy and this one's little different. Detail adjustments have improved the low speed ride and added extra feel to the standard power steering. Equipment levels remain strong across the range - twin front and side airbags are standard on every model in the standard range for instance, along with front foglamps, a trip computer and electric mirrors. Customers now choose from L, LX, GLX, SRi, Executive and V6 models, along with Rapier special editions.
All feel plush, with quality fixtures and fittings along with nice touches like a penholder next to the gearstick.
The 406 garnered an exemplary record amongst both corporate and private buyers alike, although used prices are softening a little in the face of competing attractions. The facelifted 406 range dates back to May 1999 and theres no shortage of 99T and V-plate examples about. Prices start at under 2,875 for an air-conditioned 1.8LX.
Although the 110bhp version sneaked into the last of the pre-facelift range, this is where youll also find the superb new common rail HDi diesel in 90bhp form. Prices start at around 3,250 for the 90bhp LX (with air) and the 110bhp is around 800 extra. The 3.0-litre V6 makes an unobtrusively quick car, and prices start at 3,450 for a 99T plated manual car, rising to 5,375 for a 51-plated example.
Many buyers opted for an automatic gearbox to complement the smooth power delivery and these tend to retail at a premium of around 250 over the manual models.
The level of build quality is excellent but there have been some stories of problems with the four-cylinder petrol engines. Stalling, especially in the 2.0-litre versions, is by no means uncommon, so try to ensure you start the engine from cold on your test drive. Theres also the known weakness of this engine family of engines the timing belt.
