    My car

    The Peugeot 207 1.6 hdi 90 bhp model has been the cheapest car to run that I have had. For a start the tax is negligible as it is in the same Co2 band as a Toyota Prius and I've only got a vague recollection of what a petrol station looks like. It is however initially rather expensive at around £12,000. In my opinion I think that the styling looks stunning, especially in black and Peugeot really do a good black (onyx) while the interior exudes quality (I have no rattles or squeaks) and the stereo is first rate. The drive is sluggish initially but quickly picks up through the gears. The car really holds its own on the motorway helped along with the diesels low revs and handling is better than the sports car that I've just got rid of. As for the cars downsides, there aren't any at the moment but there were unfortunately downsides with my dealers honesty and integrity and I'm not looking forward to having much to do with them again. But who likes car dealers anyway.

    My car

    While my Peugeot 607 went into the dealership for a service I had the 207 as a courtsey car. On first impressions the exterior looked fresh and new, but on the inside not a lot inspired me. It had the 1.4 90 bhp engine, which blew other cars away at the lights but 1st gear didnt have any pull,2nd and 3rd were ok, however. Fuel consumption wasnt very good either but the car had only done 2000 miles, so maybe that will improve as the engine wears.The interior quality was ok but the doors sounded tinny and thin. The gearbox was good though, which suprised me because all the Peugeots I have owned have sloppy changes. The specifacation was alright, it had remote locking, air con and elec windows. My 11 year old daughter struggled to get in the back though. I wouldnt buy a 207, I would look at a polo or jazz as they offer what the 207 does but with other advantages aswell. The new 150 turbo looks good,though

    My car

    A very tricky one to rate, and here's why! Within days, the car started 'lurching' during driving, then the engine was cutting out when lights switched on, and by the weekend, was cutting out and loosing all electrical power when engine revved or any equipment switched on!! Long story short, car returned to garage who agreed to a replacement. We have ordered a 1.6 HDi S this time. According to the dealer this is the first problem 207 they have had. The car itself was a lovely vehicle (other than it was faulty!) and I look forward to the replacement. The cabin is outstanding, and gives the impression of quality materials and a solid build. It feels like a very mature supermini, and is pretty spacious, especially in the front. I think the spec of the car is perfect for the money - its all the stuff you'll probably need. Its a great car to drive - not very powerful with the 1.4 8v engine, but adequate for most driving situations. It pulls from low revs, and sits at motorway speeds with no fuss. The ride feels balanced and refined on the road. The glove box is only big enough for a pair of gloves!! If you are looking for a medium sized car, which feels solid, and looks pretty, you can't go wrong. The only reason we have ordered the HDi instead of the same model again, is that we are scared it may die again! Goodbye to 'Phoebe' (as my wife had christened the car!) We may have only done 150 miles together, but they were 150 pleasant miles!!

    My car

    I have been looking for my next car for a couple of weeks now, I considered the new Corsa, new Clio, Fiesta and Polo. I came close to ordering the clio, but felt the quality in the cabin a bit poor and opted for the Corsa, however problems with delivery put me off and so I went to test the 207 I can sum it up in one word fantastic and I felt the deal I managed to squeeze out of the dealer made it just as affordable as the others
