I bought my car from new in April 2007 and on 4th September while I was driving down the M1 the dashboard caught alight. I pulled on to the hard shoulder and within minutes it was a ball of fire. I was lucky to get out in time. The car was completely gutted. I contacted Peugeot expecting them to at least take note that there was a fault and could be a danger to other owners but they were not interested. The dealer did at least try talking with them but with no success.
Bought a 1 year old '07 1.4 (90) S A/c model for my wife who is very pleased with it - paid £6750 at local Peugeot dealer due to severe depreciation in first year. Initial impressions are very good, solidly built, good ride, quite nippy engine (loses it a bit on motorway overtaking but very good around town). We tried a Suzuki Swift but preferred the 207, with its much bigger boot. I normally avoid French cars due to reliability and quality control issues but we hope this will prove cheap reliable motoring.
I just brought this car for 6 months brand new when my car overheated and caught fire. My insurance then gave me a new car which 12 months later the fuel pump broke. The running costs were terrible when the fuel pump had a fault, it did 9 mpg on the motorway which i actually noticed my fuel gauge lowering every minute. I then left my car home until i gave it in to my dealer and fixed it under warranty 2 weeks later. They kept my car to fix for 12 days and gave me a peugeot 207 three-door as my courtesy car which was really powerful. A 1.6 175bhp and had a bad fuel consumpsion.
I have owned the 207 1.4 90HP for early 2 years now. Use it for short local runs but occasional long distance motorway journeys. Find it excellent to drive but wouldn't buy another 207 as I think the visibility whilst driving is appalling. There are very large blind spots behind the front pillars. There is an aluminium square surrounding the clock etc which, whilst driving into the sun, reflects badly onto the windscreen . The demister outlets are wrongly placed and so don't clear the windscreen fully at the top.
