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.
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
Cute, Clever, Economical...what more could you ask for?
I have this car just over a month and a half and I must say: I am extremely pleased with it.
First, the pros:
.It looks absolutely stunning .Interior space for front passengers is more than adequate .Cabin looks and feels excellent quality, dash is spacious and everything is easily accessible & usefull. .Running costs are great, and isurance and TAX rates are brilliant. .Parking really couldn't be any easier. .Despite its small engine, picks up the speed nicely and is a fast car. .Comfortable, nice looking seating.
.Despite its modern look, the car doesnt exactly feel as 'solid' as, say, a Volkswagen. The front bumper is pure plastic and would never survive a small crash. .It is apparent where costs were saved, the whole car carpet is rather flimsy (however this does mean that cleaning and modifying the car is a lot easier). The body-colored interior door panels will appeal to some people, but will look cheap to others. .Suspensions are dry, and going over a ramp will be uncomfortable until you get used to the car. .Motorway crosswinds will blow the car all over the place.
Overall, I highly reccomend the Peugeot 107 S.E. It's truly a great, economical, modern car. It may not be cheap, but the low running costs will make up for the extra hundred. This car is truly Smiles better than the rest!!!
We have had this car since 1st September and absolutely love it! We were a bit apprehensive about downsizing from a 56 reg Focus sport having 2 children but as soon as we got in the car it all disappeared. We have had about 55MPG around town and 68MPG on a run. The fuel consumption is fab getting us from Birminghan to Cornwall on £15 fuel with the car fully loaded! People have said that the engine is noisy but we think it adds to the character and quite like it. It's a great little nipping around car and the boot isn't as small as it looks as we managed to get 2 adults and 2 kids' 4 days worth of holiday gear in it plus a small flat screen telly! The back of the car is roomy and can seat a six foot adult in easily and still have leg room. The stereo is stylish and having the option of an MP3 socket. Overall a great little car we wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
