    My car

    Depollution System Fault - can anyone help? I have owned this car for 20 months, and love the car. It looks like a little car, but has great acceleration and leaves other cars standing on the roundabouts in Milton Keynes! I love the look of shock when they see an 'older' lady driver! However, it has recently started having a DEPOLLUTION SYSTEM FAULT. The loss of power is sudden, frightening, and dangerous. This fault has occured 4 times in the last month and Peugeot do not seem to be having much luck sorting it. Has anyone got any advice?

    My car

    I love the car and it drives ok, however I am lucky if I can get 38mpg. Which is unacceptable as I purchase the car on the bases on the official peugeot fuel figures which are 47.9, 59,& 69 mpg. What make me more frustrate is peugeot dealers are using excuses like ithe weather, road surface, oil temperature tyres the list goes on. The fact that I have new tyres and it has just been service make this answer even worse. Even on a motorway trip I am lucky if I get 47mpg. I beleive if they cannot get my car to get at least 50mpg around town and short journeys something is wrong. Peugeot dealers say the are ok and are un willing to resolve the situation. What about trading standards surely this is not right, if they state a fuel figure the car should be able to achive something liek the published figures. Can anyone advise me on what to do with my 2 year old car which is still under warranty. Thanks, Apart from that I like the car but I may have to sell it as I need have better fuel comsumption level.

    My car

    I know why people are having problems with their peugeot's.

    The reason is because as I drive around I see people thrashing their peugeot's and ten they complain on this website that it's so unreliable and you'd never touch one again, if you drove them sensibly then I would understand there was a problem.

    My uncle has had 4 peugeot's and had no trouble and I have had a few peugeot's with no trouble whatso ever.

    My car

    I have owned a 56 plate ex demo 1.6 sport for nearly 18 months now.

    There are 2 main arrears for concern. Firstly the fuel consumption - which I can only get a maximum of 34mpg despite my best efforts.

    The second, and most important, is the absolutely appalling build quality of the car. I've had many problems with the car, both minor and major, ranging from various trim rattles in the cabin, boot and the glass roof.

    As other readers have experienced, I have had the dreaded "depollution system error" warning light on the dash board and the lack of power that readily follows this. It has taken 5 trips to 2 different dealers to get this sorted out. The various "excuses" I was given for this were quite laughable - one being I need to keep the oil at full at all times!

    After having my car serviced for the first time at 19000 the car broke down the following day. After 2 weeks in the garage whilst the problem was being investigated, I have now received my car back after it's engine has been completely replaced under warranty!

    In short I would summarise the car as being very nice to drive (when working and with no rattles), reasonable fuel costs to run the vehicle and quite stylish to boot. However, I don't think I would ever buy another Peugeot again as, to be quite blunt, the car couldn't be more badly made if it was put together by blind chimps!
