Someone really did their homework on this photo in the business section highlighting a Hyundai:

Ya, picture does not match the article.
In defence of Peugeot though, They have a pretty stout record on the World stage in many forms
of Motor Sport.

Even if owned mostly by the Government of France (cough, cough, bailout, cough)

Last I heard, and I'm not entirely up on it.
Mostly built in China.

Hyundai, I think they are built by BIC...Hahahahaha !

It would be great if they brought Peugeot, and most unavailable European manufacturers to Canada. Peugeot have made some truly great cars over the years

If Peugeot is such a crappy brand why do they currently own the Pikes Peak hillclimb record?
ps://www.google.ca/search?q=pikes+peak+ ... e&ie=UTF-8
Unlimited 2013 Sébastien Loeb Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak 8:13.878

Peugeot also has won at Petit Lemans beating it's rival Audi

They also won 24 hr Lemans in France in 2009
Not bad for a piece foreign junk.

Then there is the World Rally championship:

During its time in the World Rally Championship, Peugeot took 48 wins, five manufacturers' awards and four drivers' championships. The team left the WRC in 2005.

Hmmm, have to disagree. Lexus makes an amazing vehicle. A friend of mine whom commutes a lot is on his 4th Camry and each on he has put over 400k on without any serious issues other than maintenance. The big 3 have upped their game in th elast 10 years. I do believe VW and Nissan have lagged behind in their quality....just my opinion.

Absolute junk. Just cause with a team of mechanics they can keep one running for an hr. Proves nothing.

OK, then that explains all their recalls over the last few years! :200:
Nowadays it's almost rude to ask a question without Googling it first!

Well it's better than Nissan but not VW according to total recalls on this list.

https://www.auto123.com/en/recalls/

Toyota is about 10th from the bottom in number of recalls in Canada.

I realize numbers here mean very little without knowing what the recalls were for etc but I get tired of people touting how good Toyota is when in reality they are no better than any other manufacturer and have had their share of serious problems.

The last time I looked there were 24 hours in the 24 H leMans

I'm sure you have plenty of recent examples to compare with?

My example is 27 years old and I drive it every year for fun.

I expect you have your reasons for hate on for Peugeot.

They are pioneers in OHC and they had a hemihead long before Chrysler ever did.
The first motorcar in the world to have an engine with two overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder was the 1912 Peugeot L76 Grand Prix race car designed by Ernest Henry. Its 7.6-litre monobloc straight-4 with modern hemispherical combustion chambers produced 148 bhp (19.5 HP/Liter(0.32 bhp per cubic inch)). In April 1913, on the Brooklands racetrack in England, a specially built L76 called "la Torpille" (torpedo) beat the world speed record of 170 km/h.[2] Robert Peugeot also commissioned the young Ettore Bugatti to develop a GP racing car for the 1912 Grand Prix.


I'm not sure how a "junk" car manufacturer manages to sell 3 million vehicles worldwide.
