Good looks can be deceiving...

On a good day, the RCZ was a fast (but rather firm and bumpy) ride with sloppy (indifferent) steering. A nice big boot for a sporty car.

On a bad day it displayed error codes, had trips to the garage for repairs and exceeded warranty claims.

An example of repairs within a few months (10,000 miles) of ownership:
1. Ignition coil and plug failure,
2. Engine oil leaks,
3. Turbo hose cracked,
4. Fan control module failure,
5. Fuses blown,
6. Coolant pump failure,
7. Coolant system leak,
8. Tensioner slippage.

The least reliable car I've owned in over 20 years. I don't hammer my cars. Perhaps I'm just unlucky. This was my first (and will be my last) Peugeot car.

The phrase 'never judge a book by it's cover' is worth remembering. The RCZ isn't called 'the poor mans Audi TT' for nothing.
