    My car

    2 months ago I moved from a 3 year old TDCi (130 ps) Mondeo into the 107 and was expecting to take a bit if time to adjust, The 107 has however surpassed my expectations, I do a 90 mile a day motorway commute with my wife which is not the 107's natural environment, however the car has long gearing and does cruise at a reasonable speed and refinement is OK considering its size, the chassis does become a bit twitchy but only at the top end and you only need to ease off a little to regain composure. I'm getting 50 mpg from new may be able to get 55 mpg with careful driving. The engine even has some torque and copes OK with 4 adults. The negative points, I expected a small boot on a small car, but the parcel shelf really gets in the way when loading shopping, the hatch back also needs a good slam to get it to lock, however my daughter likes the back seat and good visabilty. Considering buying a second 3 dr version to replace my wife's old Micra.

    My car

    I have owned an '06' 3dr urban in red with the 2 tronic transmission for just over 20 months. Just about to part company with it, trading it in for a new Mitsubishi Colt.

    Good points: Good reliability. cheap running costs. quite nippy for a 1.0 engine.

    Bad points: Dont believe the hype, you will get 50mpg at best under any conditions. Very, very noisy cabin environment. Terrible auto gearbox. Lack of power out of town. Very harsh ride quality.

    It may look good value compared to other cars in this class, but you can do a lot better for similar money.

    To sum up, a cheap city car built down to a price with quite a few corners being cut. Dont buy the auto, you wont like it.

    My car

    I bought this car brand new in september and found it impossible to live with and only got 30-35 MPG out of it. I am 6' and it gave me terrible lower back pain. I drove it on the motorway twice and it felt very very unstable I found it to be slightly un nerving as it gets pulled in by large lorries. All in all it is ok providing its just used for popping to the shops and in town traffic, however things will annoy you like the interior light only comes on when the drivers door is opened and it is very cheaply made which is obvious. It also needs to be serviced every 10k miles or 1 year, all other peugeots need to serviced every 20k miles or two years. This is not cheap either nocking £200. If you are on a really really tight budget and insurance cost is an issue and you only drive around town then its a useful alternative to a normal car as its so simple to park. It looses value quite fast too. Ensure you get a hefty discount or it isn't worth the money.

    My car

    I bought this car in 2005 brand new and sold it in November with 38000 miles on the clock.

    The first 6 months of owning this car i had nothing but trouble and it spent more time in peugeots garage than in my own. it started cutting out, after several visits to the garage they finallt discovered a problem with the electrics. then things went bad to worse when i drove it round a corner one day and the steering locked!! i rang my local dealer who took it away and gave me it back saying nothing was wrong with it, i then got on to head office as i didnt thing that was good enough, they eventually sent it to a different dealer where they told me there was a fault on the steering lock and it all needed to be replaced, they did this under the warranty, although they didnt want to and tried to make alot of excuses.

    after the 'teething problems' i loved the car, it was cheap to drive, it was nippy for a 1.0 ltr and the boot space wasnt terrible for the tiny car it was, i could fit my little boys pram base in the car.

    The only other problems i had were the tyres which is why i have rated the running costs only at a 3 star, i had to replace the tyres every 6500 miles, the dealers said that the car hads obviosly had a hard life but i disagree, i may only be 21 but i have a baby boy so would never drive eratically and this was my 3rd car and tyres had never been a problem on these.

    overall i would say this is a lovely car but i think the dealers really let it down!!
