    My car

    Bought the car for my wife as a replacement for 1.3GSI Hyundai Getz mainly on the grounds of looks and fuel econnomy.Pluses are it is much more pleasing to the eye,more comfortable and much plusher inside with all the whistles and bells. Negatives are it seems sluggish pulling away and definitely is not as responsive when you need a bit extra when overtaking . She loves it and it should save us money but its not great to drive.

    My car

    I have owned my GTI for about 9 months now, I am very proud to own it, I bought it second hand from Available Car last year for a great price and I've not seen any advertised since like-for-like. I love it! I have to say being only my second car to drive I have been very spoilt, it's very quick off the mark and I havent timed it myself but peugeot say 6.7secs which just about suits me fine. As for the running costs, I know I've only rated it "good" but thats what you'd expect for a 1.6 GTI,it does drink fuel as I only get around 28mpg urban and combined and my road tax last time was £175, but it doesn't bother me because everytime I go out in it, I've still got the new car feeling.

    I did have a fuel leak on the turbo not long after buying it, but it was covered under warranty and Peugeot sorted me out a courtesy car upon dropping it into the garage. Not had a service yet though but I expect that to be around £200, will just have to see anyway.

    In conclusion it's exactly as the advert portrays 'A Little Devil'

    My car

    I was the owner of a 207 5dr Urban which was only a year old until I was involved in a nasty accident. The airbags and seatbelts quite possibly saved mine and my 2 year old daughters lives. The impact was at 60mph and the protection from the car was incredible. Protection is obviously so important and so is the overall look of a car and the 207 is top of the list for me. I am currently going through the process of buying a replacement 207 (I am upgrading to the S 95bhp model as I can afford to now) and can't praise the whole package of the car enough.

    My car

    I've had the 207 for over twelve months now and I have to say that I'm very impressed with it. The car is quiet both on the motorway and around town, indeed the only time you'll get any noise on the motorway is if you really put your foot down. In addition to this, the 207 also posts good figures in terms of fuel economy.

    As previous reviewers have noted the cabin has a germanic level of quality and if, like me, you're over six foot tall you won't feel uncomfortable as the cabin is quite spacious in terms of headroom and legroom. Overall the car is well put together and has a solid feel to it, which is something that did surprise me given the reputation that Peugeot have had in the past.

    There are one or two minor quibbles, which relate to the gearbox (the gear change can, on occasion, be notchy) and the fact that the car can feel a little slow when moving off from a stationary position. However, none of this can detract from the pleasure that I've derived from owning the car and I have to say that I would certainly look to get another Peugeot after this.
