Downsized to save money but its a nightmare...no power, electrics are dodgy and feels like your driving a hairdrier...car is just slow slow slow, even the window wipers have a 3 second delay when you press them...AVOID THIS CAR AT ALL COSTS
I bought this car in January 2008 because I was in an accident with my last car. This is my 4TH Peugeot and I have mainly stuck with the same manufacture due to basically having very little propers with the last.
Well what can i say about the car ??. It looks very stylish and makes its mark on the road. Even before owning one they always catch my eye. The interior is also excellent, My friend recently bought a new Audi and to be honest there is not much different when it comes to interior quality. All the features needed come as pretty much a standard package. The styling inside basically looks modern but not over the top.
On the road the car drives very well, ride is firm but road noise is kept to a minimum. Control are very easy to use with a very light clutch unlike previous Peugeots. Pedals are spaced well and the steering is excellent. Plenty of road feel and very light at parking speeds. The HDI engines themeselves are very good and well proven. I tried all engine from 1.4 HDI to the one i bought.
The cars seems very popular with driving schools furthuring the point thats they are very easy to drive.
Overall I am very satisfied with the car and would recommend to anyone. I do see the point is spending like £7K more on a car that basically takes the fun out of driving.
Think Peugeot are onto a winner with this
I have now had the car around 4 months and already have a problem with the ESP light staying on(new hydraulic brake block needed), the car losing most of its power, the depollution light coming on and a dodgy electric window. I hope these are just a few teething problems that will be sorted under warranty and not the start of many, as this really is a joy to drive when it's working properly. Come on Peugeot, I want the drive of my life to be a reliable one.
This car is fantastic, I have driven loads of cars in the past from BMWs to Mercs but this car is really special. It has the looks and the ability to out perform many a car. I have test driven the 1.4 S but found it to sluggish but when i drove my 110 HDi SPORT, i knew it had to be the one, what more could you ask for, 16 inch alloys, white sporty speed dials, air con, trip computer, cd player with steering mounted remote and with an average 60 mpg and £120 a year road tax. To bad Peugeot customer service cannot perform like the car can.
