    It's POO-juho (like you're saying 'Joe' but put a 'juh' in the front), it's easy to remember cause they're POO cars.

    Modding, LS swapping and electro conversions are making the government happy, because they have destroyed more classic cars than an cash for clunkers scheme ever could.

    The weirdest car review I have ever seen...congratulations!
    Most of this cars ended trashed in ditches or heavily abused ,that's why most GTI's were put out of commission.
    Luckily I could find a 205 1.9 in a very decent condition and enjoy it with caution:)

    After trying this, I'd love to see a review of the Peugeot 106 Rallye/GTi as well... Or a Citroen Saxo VTS... A Fiat Punto GT could also be interesting... So many European hot hatches from 80's/90's that are worthy of a review... But this is probably the grandaddy of all of them anyway...

    RCR, this video made me think of a car I used to have - a 1992 Geo Prism GSi. It was a high performance Geo Prism. Really. It had upgraded suspension parts, 14" wheels, and a 4A-GE engine. It wasn't the fastest thing on the planet, but it was zippy, and you could take street corners with the silly thing at 55 mph.

    The 205 GTI was deemed a coffin where I lived. While the norm for most FWD cars is to provide an "easier" or "safer" handling by making understeer present before oversteer would appear, the GTI was decidedly neutral. In contrast, most hot hatches of the era would reveal their shortcomings in terms of steering precision, chassis, brakes, balance etc at cornering speeds well below what the 205 could achieve, thus not inviting an inexperienced driver to approach the limit. So here was a car that would make it seem all too easy, being agile, grippy and composed in slow corners, inviting even inexperienced drivers to go faster than they had ever gone. Then the rear would step out in a fast corner when the driver lifted off the throttle a bit too abruptly and they were not really prepared for handling such a situation. Having driven several of them for years and built a couple into track cars, it almost baffles me because once you've become accustomed to that, not only is it one of the most intuitive cars I've ever driven, but you can't help but use its tail-happy behavior to reach apexes of corners in more extreme angles. I've never had as much fun in my life than in this car.

    The worst thing about the Peugeot 205 is the French electrical systems. They are so different. Circuits are oddly intertwined, they don't use world standard connectors or parts, all French only stuff, so much of it is unnecessary complicated. So, when you're indicator flasher unit fails, you spend 3 weeks trying to source a replacement, needing to order one from Latvia because they seem to have purchased the schematics of old French doo-hickeys to start reproduction of them. And in the time spent waiting for it to arrive you try six different relay units, configured exactly how the circuit diagram says it should work, and then it still doesn't. Somehow the right indicator works okay, the left one doesn't. But when you put the hazard lights on only the left indicator flashes, unless you also have the indicator stalk switched to the left, then both sides flash... WHAT THE?!?!?!? Yes... I owned a 205, and as great fun as the car was, the electricals were SOOOO French, it was a daily challenge.

    I had a Peugeot 205 STDT turbo diesel with a beige interior and gti seats. Loved that car. I could cruise for ever in it so I did a 4500 mile roadtrip in the Europe. And it’s true you floor it to the speed limit every time haha. And the handling was really nice. Really miss this car

    So it didn't make the American market? But the driving position on this car is on the left? Is this a conversion or an import from somewhere they had them and drive on the right?
    Also based on adverts here in the UK it sounds like "Per geot"

    • alexanderguerre1

      Peugeot is French, and the car was imported from France, not the UK (French license plate). People in France drive on the same side of the road as people in North America. French cars are quite popular in the UK though, that's why the UK was mentioned in the video.
