    My car

    I've had my peugeot 107 for nearly 3 years now, and I think its a good, reliable little car. It was my first car so I don't have anything to compare it to however my boyfriend had a corsa at the same time as my peugeot and found that his car had numerous amounts of faults while mine had none. I got the car when it had 18,000 miles on the clock, now it has nearly 40,000 miles on the clock and the only thing thats had to be changed is the break pads. A common problem i've heard is that the clutch needs to be changed on most of them however I haven't had this problem.

    PROS: - Nippy car around town - Low fuel costs - Reliable - Fairly comfortable - Fun to drive

    CONS: - Loud road noise - Muffled speakers - Cracked hazard button (common fault) - Driving feels VERY light going round corners - The inside doors are the same colour as cars body, some may like this however I feel it looks tacky and cheap. - Can't control passenger windows from drivers seat

    It has been good to me over the past 3 years however I am ready for a change as the 1.0 litre engine isn't strong enough for me! Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to save a bit of money, or for a first car.

    My car

    I've had one of these for a week as courtesy car. First impressions where how small it is, second how flimsy, thirdly after driving how unsafe I felt. Absolutely everything is budget driven. The steering is so light you wonder if the tyres are in contact with the road.The seats after half an hour were giving me back ache and the base so short it pressed into the back of my thighs. I found the heater controls pretty naff to use, you have to push down quite hard to make it cooler only to find you've pressed all the way to the bottom (cold). The bottom air flow symbol is hidden by the curve of the dash, the air flow speed button isn't lit at night. The engine makes a stupid noise (yes its 3cyl) and when you throttle it (which is the only way to get some progress) the exhaust sounds like its about to drop off. Motorway speed the wind hums around the rear glass boot lid and the car is buffered by any cross winds. The boot lid is basically a piece of glass which, when open, carries a lump of a motor for the rear wiper which is at the right height to catch the back of your head when you stand upright. In summary, all I can say is thank heavens I don't own this car. My normal car is nothing "flash" but at least I feel safe and I don't feel like you could break into it with a toffee hammer. Compared to the VW "UP" or a second hand Fiesta or even a second hand old style KA (which I've driven and loved, its like the MINI of old)its waaaaaay off. I hope to heavens its dirt cheap to buy!

    My car

    I have owned this car for 1 year and 3 months and I have had only one problem with it. I was told the battery is quite low (I don't know how much that would cost to replace, but I have been taking it out for longer drives to help the battery). Other than that, I use it to get to uni and it is really reliable, I have never had any problems with it. The only thing is, is that it can be quite noisy on the inside, I thought that was just my driving, but it changes.. there are times when the driving sounds quiet,but there's been times when it is really loud and on occasion I have been asked if I am driving a diesel car? But I like this car a lot because it is easy to park and nice for driving around town. I haven't had any problems with it on the motorway, except for one route on a dual carriageway where it goes slow on the uphill, but that is a really steep uphill climb. But generally on the motorways, it can cope with the speeds of other cars. I find that the boot is small, but you can fit a lot in it. I recently went on a picnic and had four rucksacks, a thick blanket and two big boxes of drink in there, along with the other general car maintenance equipment I always carry in the boot. I chose the five door version because I am the only one in my family who drives, and thought it would be more practical. The space in the interior is really good for a small car (though I dont know if that is just because I am small) but the space in the back is roomy so I have been told.

    My car

    I have had this car now for nearly two years, I didn't have it from new though - I am the second owner. Overall good but I will just start with some common faults. I am waiting for my Girlfriend to pass her test so she can have it as I am 6 foot tall, and I am starting to get back pains when driving.

    COMMON FAULTS *Clutch goes at around 20,000 miles - couldn't believe though other people writing reviews said that it cost them between £450 and £600 as it cost me £200 for a new clutch which obviously I would rather not need to replace, but not a life threatening cost. *Something small, but people who own these cars have mentioned that their hazard light button has cracked. I am replacing mine this week - but you have to remove all center dash console to get to it.

    GOOD THINGS *Easy to park *Cheap Road Tax *Reliable *Can look nice, but I wish I got a model with alloys now. *Running cost is great, but I have found driving style can make a massive impact. Not amazing on the motorway for fuel.

    THINGS THAT ARE STARTING TO WIND ME UP (Obviously though, I shouldn't expect more for cost) *The seats are like a sponge for dirt, I have never had a car where I have had to shampoo seats so often. *Sound quality of stereo is rubbish *You can hear the gear changes, clunky *Lack of storage / Boot Space *Can't open the passenger side window from driver side

    REASONS FOR BUYING *Cheap Insurance for your drivers *Cheap run around for somebody that 'isn't a car perso
