Peugeot expert 1.9 road tax

Recommended Posts

I am considering a w reg 1.9 expert as a cheap runabout. Does anyone know what the road tax would be?

It would replace a car as my going to work vehicle, and save towing a trailer when cutting my firewood.

It's much slower than the car it would replace (MGZR 160) but I think I could put up with that, in return for the van convenience and be able to travel off road with no trailer to pick up my wood when its wet. I did look at new vans but I only travel a few miles a day so the dpf etc would give trouble.

Wouldn't normally consider anything this old but it's like new, fsh, and simple old tech so hopefully fairly reliable. Opinions welcome but I definitely do not need a 4x4.

If you get an expert, why not go for a wheelchair ramp one.

There's loads of them about, there is a lot more room in them where the floor has been lowered, and the mileage is usually a lot less. You also get a handy loading ramp.

 

I got on years ago with 27k on the clock for less than 100k+ vans of the same age.

Seems quite a usable van for its size.

Any idea when they started putting the emission rubbish on them?

Mine is an 03 reg and it seems reasonably simple. Probably a good idea to look at a peugeot forum or call your local Peugeot specialist and talk to a mechanic.

 

Touch wood, I've had no issues in the 25K miles I've had mine (must be a record).

The plastic door handles are crud but that has never stopped me using it.

Thanks Shane.

Didn't really set out looking for one, but came across a mint condition one in my local garage. The non turbo might be bit of an embarrassment up hill especially loaded but it looks a size I could live with.

I reckon that'll be pre HDI too so even better. :thumbup:

had a pre hdi version, excellent, towed the 252 behind it for years. no problem. last one was 05, engine management went wrong, scrap!

That's interesting because I have a twin wheeled trailer and I was wondering if I could tow it. From its early days I remember the Peugeot 1.9 had a good reputation. Good to hear you guys confirming that.

 

Even at that age the van is probably a better long term bet but losing the cars handling and trading 160 horses for 70 makes it a difficult decision.

Thanks for all the opinions and info, it looks like I have some thinking to do.
