    My car

    I tried as the next upgrade for my motability vehicle for my son. We drive a C4 G Picasso so looked at the 5008 first before this caught my eye.From what I have, this in a way is a downgrade size wise. The cabin itself is clean and modern and I personally like the neat touches of the grab handle by the centre console. Makes access easier. Instrument panels are good, though why so many switches for the headup display is odd. As for the Head up display, why not just incooprate digital instruments? Ride was good, nothing to exciting and pulling power was ok for the diesel I tried. Boot was ok for loading height and it's split level system. However, I won't be choosing this as my next vehicle due to 2 points which potential buyers with children or who carry others should bear in mind. 1. The rear seats are too cramped for legroom, especially if you have taller occupants in the front. Couldn't quite see my 11yr old siiting in comfort, let alone my 5ft son. 2. The middle rear seat is more a "board" than seat. It's the hardest ever middle seat I've come across. Should you have to put a passenger to sit on it, make sure the journey is short. Very short! On these 2 points alone, I didn't order the car and went for a Renault Scenic instead which in my opinion, betters this car on those 2 plus many, many more points including ride, space and practicallity. Don't own the car so mileage isn't known. I know this has been voted "Car of the year", but somehow, I don't see why.

    My car

    I have rare auto box. Car is good to look at and well laid out inside. Ride very smooth and handling excellent. Noise levels very well deadened. A nice car spoilt by two faults; in normal use the auto gearbox is one of the smoothest I have ever driven with nearly imperceptible changes. However, when flooring the accelerator to overtake, the box changes down ok but does not change back up again for up to 30 seconds. The dealer confirms that it does this, but can find no fault. Peugeot 'help' no help.

    The other niggling problem is with the radio. If a USB stick is inserted, when starting the car the radio starts then always switches itself over to the USB stick.

    Silly design faults spoiling an otherwise excellent car.

    My car

    I am a disabled driver and took delivery of a brand new 1.6 ECG in December. the first day the gearbox malfunctioned. took it back, they said nothing showed up on diagnostics and must have been a "glitch". Few days later the particle filter warning light started coming on, on the day i took it in, the gear box again malfunctioned. they said they had fixed both probs. a few days later after leaving the slip road to the A1, the gearbox again malfunctioned, cutting power and causing a lorry to have to swerve to avoid KILLING me. What larks for the dealer, "must have been a Friday nighter" etc. Motablity agreed to terminate it and i ordered another. took delivery on 1/3/11, guess what...gearbox malfunctioned on 3/3/11. It's now back being "diagnosed". To my mind this must be a manufacturing fault or some massive coincidence. Either way, I've now had the pleasure of near death experiences twice in this car! Take a wild guess as to whether I would recommend anyone else put their lives at risk with this car? Beautiful, yes. Economical, who knows? Dangerous, absolutely!!
