    My car

    I have owned my vehicle from new and it is 3 years old now. It eats tyres getting 10,000 miles out of the front if you're lucky and fuel economy at best is 42mpg. Mine has 'Dynamic Roll Control' which does contribute to a good ride. The cabin in nice too. Be warned though - leg room in the rear is extremely poor, even for my 6 & 8 year old kids. The boot size is also small. Don't be fooled by the term 'Crossover' as some people compare it to a 4x4 or SUV but this is built on the chassis of a 308 which is a medium family hatchback. The heater controls do not have any backlighting, so a bit of a pain at night. If you tow a caravan, be very wary of this car as the rear suspension is not up to the job and there is no apparent way of uprating the suspension. Worst of all for me, I happened to notice one of the rear disc pads had worn down to the backing plate whilst all the others had 7-8mm left. The local dealer agreed that this was not normal. However, Peugeot put it down to 'wear & tear' and refused to foot the £330 bill under warranty. I would not recommend this car to anybody. I am looking forward to hopefully trading it in for a Skoda Octavia next year.

    My car

    Like the other ECG readers occasionally on kick down the car hits a flat spot and feels like it has stalled before dropping down the gears and behaving normally. it does not happen every time but when it does it feels horrible. The support I have been having from Peugeot has been very good and even though there was no faults stored on the ECU and no info on the Peugeot technical site, they wiped the ECU and installed the latest software and stated that if it happened again to return the car for further invest. your average MPG tool is rubbish as it wont let me record the true MPG of 47.2

    My car

    I first took delivery of my crossover in 2010,it had to be returned 4 month later through gear box malfunction,each time it went back to the garage i was told nothing wrong with it, even though i was nearly killed by a lorry running into the back of me.June 2012 i had to end my contract and take another one out for the same make car,even though i think that Mobility should have agreed to just exchange the car,in doing this i lost my £200 that i should receive at the end of the term.The car i have is just 18 month old, again i have had problems, not has much but still the same problem, but also with the reversing gear now, it will not move, again in the garage, nothing wrong they say, it's the way i drive, even though this has also happened when my son has driven it.Now a few weeks ago the back seat has collapsed,into the garage again, it's just come away from it's feet i was told,a week after the same happened again,now been told it wants new frame, so that has been ordered.Has anyone else heard of a back seat of a 18 month car needing new frame.I love the car to drive, but this has put me off Peugeot altogether.I am a disabled driver so need a more reliable car,and safer one.Now i am trying to get mobility to let me exchange my car,but seem to have a bit of a fight on my hands.

    My car

    This is an update to my previous review; the car having now covered about 10,000 miles.

    My impressions of the car have not changed, it is seriously comfortable but with very sharp steering and flat cornering which is far removed from the normal 4x4 experience of hard rock and plenty of roll. The penalty is to be paid in tyre wear; the fronts are already half-worn.

    It's winter and I'm doing more short journeys now so fuel consumption is more like 40mpg rather than my previous 50mpg.

    Reliability seems excellent - nothing has dropped off, gone wrong or started squeaking - a far cry from previous Peugeot's in fact.
