I bought this car in August 2009, spending £3500 on it, the mileage was just under 50 thousand and it is a 53 plate. I bought the car as a long term investment and planned not to have to replace it for at least 5 years. Unfortunately it has not worked out as planned and I am currently in the process of attempting to sell it, not even 2 years down the line. I've had so many problems including needing an entire new exhaust and a new wheel bearing at christmas which came to a neat £400. Recently I've been having problems with my gear box and my brakes are now on their way out too. I had to have work done on it for it to pass the MOT too. So all in all if I do get the work done it's going to cost about half of what the car is worth. It is quite expensive to run and is not very economical.
It's a shame because I really do like this car, it looks modern and sleek and the interior is brilliant. The drive is comfortable, although the seating can sometimes cause me to ache after a long drive and there are some rattles when going around corners. Overall I won't be buying another peugeot anytime soon and it was definately a mistake to buy this one.
Peugeot 307 Sport, 16v 2.0L 140BHP I love this car! I have owned 2 peugeots prior to buying this speed demon. I think for me this car has been the antidote to my craze of changing cars too frequently. To date I have owned 6 cars this one is no 7 and is definitly a keeper! It has everything bar the kitchen sink : Ipod doc connection to the mid dash bard computer screen, 5 disc changer, mp3 changer. Automatic window wipers,automatic lights, Rear view mirror auto dimmer, heated and automatic fold in side mirrors. Traction control, 17inch alloys, full leather interior, lots of storage space. Sport speed dials, cruise control for those long motorway journeys, arm rests galore. Climate control. This thing only lacks heated seats, satalite navigation and the ability to travel through time, lol. I would love a porche one day but this thing is the closest to it that dosent cost a fortune to run, buy or insure once over the age of 25yrs. If you love luxuary, mod cons, and music coupled with speed, agility and fun packed thrill seekers fun then get one of these or buy it off me if you can;) I have noticed most cars on the roads today really struggle to keep up with it, only 20l+ engines have a chance. Not seen any other sport models out there yet either, plenty HDI's about though.
I didnt think i would but i really like this car yes its had a few niggles but i do 20000 miles a year and i drive it hard 90% of the time. likes seats a very good and supportive and where well unlike a volvo i once had. ive had the car over 18 months and every things on the inside works just as well as the day i bought it.and the steros very good, i love the performance its not mind blowing but good for such a cheap and safety conchess car. dislikes and problems. well the first thing i dislike is the badge as i am a car snob some parts of the car feel cheep espicaly the front wings Ive only had two problems with the car other that the norm one was at night when it was sat on the drive and hadnt been used for about 2 hours it turned on its lights inside and out out and put the stero on as if was having a disco. i recharged the battery and its never happed since weird but quite amusing. The other fault was the abs,asr,traction control,and stubility control stopped working luckly it was on one of the rear abs sensors so a cheap fix.On the plus side it gave me about 15hp more which was fun. But did show that the stability control was worth it espically when gunning it on winedy roads.
where do i start.
i had the 2.0 110bhp hdi rapier. it soon got the nicknakme of raper. put some new aqlloys on it and replaced all the filters. After 40,000 the cluth flywheel and gearbox failed with no warning. kind of ooked like when a formula 1 car breaks when it happened at 90 down the m42.
they seem to of made most the parts out of cheese. selling it now i relly do feel sorry for who buys it. then again its nearly a new car with all the bits it had.
sticks to the road like **** to a blanket.
decided to buy a used land rover discovery the new shape. was more than worth it
