Just bought a 2004 307cc from a local dealer. Lovely looking car which my wife loved so it was bought there and then. She enjoyed the car until last week when a major safety issue occurred. When driving on a normal "B" road the seat belt pre-tensioner went off inside the car which tightened the seat belt around her and then the engine cut out. Fortunately this did not happen on the outside lane of a motorway. The AA towed her to a local Peugeot dealer who checked it over and said it would cost £2035.00 to fix. I said I would not pay as it was obviously a component fault as we did nothing to contribute to this incident. Peugeot were adamant they were not repairing the car - and haven't. Yes it is a nice car but before you buy or next time you take yours for a service please ask about this pre-tensioner fault as I wouldn't like this to happen to you. Also this is a little taster of the disgraceful after sales service so beware. Other faults were the drivers door sensor had to be replaced, the steering is heavy and the switches for the windows and roof are too close together. I would suggest you look elsewhere before buying a 307cc.
having owned the megane cc for 12 months and having nothing but trouble with leaks from the folding roof, i decided to trade it in for the 307cc. the car is faultless the windows fit tight under the roof then drop slightly once you open the doors. the car looks good roof up or down, inside the car two adults can fit in the back with good leg room,its my wifes car and she loves the car not much motor way driving so cant comment on fuel costs, but overal i would fully recomend the 307cc to anyone thinking of owning one.stay away from the megane cc!!!!!!!!!
The car is a 53 plate in silver with only 28k miles and just serviced by Peugeot in july at 26.5k miles.I have only just bought this car and wanted a steel roofed cab as I have owned a Megane and a 200 Rover cab in the past.This will only be used as a second car so the miles will remain low.Since buying I have done around 600 miles both motorway and A roads and found it very pleasing.Everything works s it should and the suppling dealer ( not Peugeot)even fixed me up at his expence with a second key, the car was supplied with only one.I am looking forward to many happy miles.
I'm on my second 307CC 2.0 man 140bhp - my first I had from 2004 for 2.5 years & this one I've had for ~2 years & 18K miles so far.(I also owned the 2.0L 306 Cabriolet for 6 years prior).
Compared to the 306 rag-top the 307CC is: - more refined - barely any wind noise with the roof up. Top down and windows up normal conversation is feasible at 70mph. - a better sense of cabin space,well laid out & a full complement of toys (incl.colour satnav,cruise control,phone,5-CD etc.)for ~£3K more than the base model is sensibly realistic and very useful. - offers far greater security with the steel roof as well as safety with ABS,ESP,airbags & pop-up rollbars etc - more reliable in terms of faults - but still has some. - accelerates less rapidly than its predecessor (down to its obvious increased weight) yet pulls strongly & uniformly to high speeds from 30mph even in 5th gear. - the 307CC's handling is good though less accurate than the 306 which possessed a remarkably precise feedback from the front tyres through the steering. - fuel economy has never been great ~ 24-27mpg.
Overall it's a great all year round affordable stylish cruiser. It's good to drive and passengers like it. I have a Britax Evolve 123 child seat snugly fitted in one of the rear seats. I wholeheartedly reccomend this car.The back seat can be a bit tight for long journeys but hey-ho - its not made to be a coach.
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
Amazing car, once driven, never forgotton, forget all the pretenders like BMW Z4 and Mercedes SLK, they will never have the passion of a Porsche
I love this car! Handling is great, its fun to drive and even reasonably practical!
