I also suspect that PSA is in better financial health than Mitsubishi.

I have say PSA is the best of the possible players I have heard so far. I just got done typing(on another thread) that I had a very nice time recently in a 307CC in germany. I personally like the styling of Pugs. The 307( in grey metallic) was a real looker. No guts on the autobahn, but, eh,,, that can be fixed.

They have solid products, good engineering, and thanks to the exchange rate, would probably welcome building these in the US. Plus, they have dabled in polymer over the years. So, lets toss out the Freedom fries, and welcome the French! Viva la Peugot!
