I took delivery of my new semi-auto 107 on the 1st March. This car replaced my 8yr old automatic Micra. I test drove an auto model before purchasing.
With hindsight, my 15 min test drive was not long enough to get a real feel for the car. The auto gear changes take quite a bit of getting used to. You can feel every gear change. Not like my Micra's CVT auto box, which delivered smooth, seamless gear changes. I find this car rather slow accelerating from 0-60mph. I frequently have to use "kickdown" mode to keep up with the flow of traffic.
I only had this car 7 days when it completely stalled on me whilst reversing out a parking space. I couldn't get it started again as it was locked in reverse gear. No amount of effort could move the gear stick into neutral. The auto model will not start unless in neutral and your foot on the brake. It took 4 adults to push the car back into the parking space. The wheels had also locked tight and it took sheer brute strength to push it 2 feet.
However, pushing it seemed to release or free something which enabled me to move the gear into neutral. I took the car back to my dealer next day. "Naturally" they couldn't find any faults !! . Although, I still love it's looks and fuel economy, I have lost confidence in this little car and it has quite a bit of making up to do to get back into my affections again.
This is a fantastic little car - a real head turner! I have had absolutely no problems whatsoever. It represents great value for money, and is very spacious considering the size of the car.
Its 'must-have' extra options include a spoiler, fog lights, clear rear sports lights, luxury mats and rev counter.

We have a Yellow 5 door semi-automatic 107,which looks fantastic as we had alloy wheels and a rear spoiler fitted as extras. My wife loves the car and we both think its great about town and it can hold its own on main roads as well. The cabin is very roomy for such a small car and we can even get a childs buggy in the small boot. Now for the down side. We are only averaging between 37-42 mpg,(and thats spending about 60% of its time on a dual carraigeway). It has been in the garage but the dealer is telling us its OK. The dealer also told us that the official tests are done under stict conditions and that it is unrealistic to expect to obtain the official test figures. On the up side Peugeot have said they will investigate the matter and we are now just waiting on a reply. Overall it's a good little car, that looks great, is dirt cheap to insure and you can tax for little more than it costs for a full tank of petrol.
hello all. I bought a brand new Peugeot 107 5-door manual urban about 6 weeks ago. I had previously owned (for 5 years) a 106 with which I had no trouble at all over 5 years also bought new. I have had problems starting this car which occurss intermittently and is not dependent on whether the engine is warm or not as it can happen at any time. I have jsut had it back to the dealer from whom I bought the car and they said nothing was wrong with it. There are 260 miles on the clock. I am worried i have bought a "lemon". Robyn
