    My car

    My partner bought this car on a bit of a whim. Initially, the 1007's quirkiness was quite appealling.

    My first drive was on the M25 to Brighton and it soon became a disappointing drive. Boy, did I have to work it to stay at 80mph. The fuel consumption on the miniscule fuel tank was quite alarming. To date, the car has been in twice in three weeks with a nearside door fault. We decided that the car was not for my partner and went off in search of another car.

    I'm sure this car will appeal to some, but the 1.4 is so underpowered, my lawnmower is quicker away from the lights! The 2 Tronic gearbox changes into some very interesting gears at very peculier times, too.

    Before you buy, ask around some non-Peugeot dealers and ask for an underwriter's price for the model you are thinking of buying. We paid £9000 for ours and a price of £4000 was mentioned by one - and this is for a car that is five months old and has 3000 miles on the clock! Our Peugeot dealer was not interested in buying the car they sold us three weeks ago!

    Good luck, but my advice is to avoid them... there's better out there.

    My car

    I have driven the car for a week now and I have contacted Peugot about the position of the safety belt as it cuts into the neck, waiting for a reply from them.

    Pity because it's a nice drive and I would have been satisfied with it.

    So before buying check that the positioning is OK for you as the saftey belt position is not adjustable.

    My car

    I bought my car when it was six months old and had done 1300 miles - it was an ex-demonstrator model and represented a saving of about £4000 off the list price. My car is the 1.4HDi, which in my mind is more responsive than the 1.4-litre petrol and provides exceptional fuel economy.

    I really rate the doors - they are unique and are actually a useful convenience. I also like the high driving position, as it lets you eyeball van drivers, and the view ahead is great, too. The dashboard and front screen are immense - you wouldn't realise you're driving a supermini.

    As for safety, the car has seven airbags, ESP (electronic stability program), anti-lock brakes, a five-star Euro NCAP ratin, and Isofix seat anchor points. The car is also cheap to run, insure and tax - a bargain. The steering is great, and is light especially for town driving.

    However, it has a firm ride - I guess it's quite tall and short, so it needs to be hard riding - but it's only noticeable on poor urban roads. It really doesn't drive as badly as the press say -certainly, it's no sportster, but you'd look elsewhere for one of those anyway.

    Also, maybe I blame my big feet, but it's all too easy to miss the gas pedal and try to press the floor instead. The steering is also maybe too light for the open road.
