I purchased this car for my wife in May 2007 at 10 months old with 2500 miles on the clock and have to say she has been pleased as punch with it. Nothing has gone wrong, it does 50+ mpg and creates attention where ever she goes in it, but then it is the Tacoma Yellow version so really does stand out from the crowd and then you open the doors. I have been in the retail motor trade for 25+ years and will give the following advice. Do not even think about buying one of these new unless you have money to burn, they suffer from 50% or more depreciation as they leave the showroom new and be prepared to keep it as they will not be the easiest car in the world to sell, especially the petrol versions. Also be prepared to travel and negoiate for the right car, i purchased mine from a Peugeot main dealer who had sold it new and had taken back in px, their comment to me was "we will never sell this car so would take a bid just to get our money back" Result one nearly new car for £6000, what value.
What do the so-called experts really know? I have been a car fanatic for 40 years and I want to try them all before I die. I bought this car for half its new value with 10 miles on the clock, 07 Reg. It is a joy to drive and access and use is so easy. Five star safety, low insurance, 54 mpg, comfortable and quiet. OK Jeremy, its not a Ferrari, but who has £65,000 to spend. I think that 10 of these might be better value.
I don't think anyone else in the country wanted one of these cars, judging by the fact the dealer had it listed at £6,999, with fifty miles on the clock, and four months since registration; perhaps it was the unpopular colour. I really wanted one though.
Being 6'5", and suffering for months from awful back pain brought on by driving too-small cars without power steering, I'd long been looking for something very tall, yet without nine seats, or bull-bars, and better gas mileage than 12pg, and costing less than £15k new. I honestly tried everything, and everything hurt to sit in, until I test-drove this car. Not the auto, mind, which was a dog - but the diesel.
Now I can actually sit fully upright in a car, I get great economy, the ride is just fine, even on country roads surrounding the village in which I live, although, I haven't been driving it fast, yet. Contrary to what others say, by the way, it sits up just fine and doesn't much lean in corners, although, again, I'm taking it slow for now.
The engine is a peach. 250 miles on the clock, and 51mpg on the main trip-computer measurement, already; and it pootles along just great, and has a satisfying noise and feel.
I love its 'gadgety-ness', its thoughtful and daring design aspects, its solidity, convenience, and the fact it has seven airbags. It feels the perfect car for me.
Purchased for the wife, but as it is such a brilliant drive,and easy to park, I tend to use it all the time. The doors are so cool (except when it is raining ) and the general finish and quality is impressive. I run a 2006 fully loaded X5 and I am begining to wonder why, when you can purchase cars this good for what is the equivalent of a years depriciation on the X5. Well done Peugeot
