    My car

    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.

    My car

    Speaking from the female point of view I LOVE this car. The car is a little slow on take off but once she is up and motoring she is great fun with a very decent turn of speed. I just love putting the roof down and do so at every opportunity which from hitting the button is approx 23 seconds and she still gets looks wherever you go. She handles well and you do feel as though you are in a very safe car.I had a few problems at the outset with a rattle but the Peugeot garage were excellent and after a few attempts got it sorted for me,I did not have any leaks or any other problems.The gadgets in the car are great and are of a spec that are extra with other cars. My only issue would be MPG could be better but to be fair I am on all city driving stopping and starting when on a longer journey this is much better. Though the seats in the rear are much better that the 207CC they are still tight and are not great for that big journey unless you have little legs! I have had her just coming on three years and am now thinking of changing her but still unsure as she is going so well. I would totally recommend this car.

    My car

    I would agree with the comments made by Nick Cooper and say it is a car full of great lateral thinking solutions to problems. I was actually going to buy the Renault CC but they messed up on price 3 times as everything that comes standard with the Peugeot is extra on the Renault. I was also worried about the number of people reporting in What Car that they had leaks with the Renault. As stated by Nick Cooper in his report the way the windows shut really prevents water getting in. I am 8 weeks in and had no problems yet. I love the diesel engine which may have a slow 0-60 mph but 30-60-80 is very fast and that is where you want the speed to pass other cars. The car tells me that we are only averaging 22MPH (thats my wife around the shopping centres)and we are getting 39MPG. We have very few long runs so cannot say how well it runs at a steady 70MPH. The roof is fantastic and goes up or down in 20 seconds. However, a lot of wind in the back seats after 40MPH but who cares. I am delighted I bought this car instead of the REnault. John Wadsworth

    My car

    I don't agree with the review. This is a fine car. The ride and handling is very good and you feel you are driving a exceptionally steady car. The refinement is very good when the roof is down, especially if you keep the windows up, and you won't need the optional wind-blocker. The refinement is superb when the roof is up. I actually find it more refined than my normal cars. That's because it has a system that can detect a hand behind the door's handle before it has even grasped it to open the door. This process causes the window to drop a few millimetres before opening so that it separates from the seal joint. When you close the door the window is raised again to fit perfectly. Then you are completely seperated from the outer world. You will not notice even a hint of wind entering from the windows. And the best part. The design is wonderful, turning heads whenever you go. It's the best design after alfa romeo 159 and brera. 4 adults can be seated just fine in the car. Finally I find it's more beautiful than the eos. Would definetely reccomend it.
