There are many things I like about this car. It has a very high level of standard equipment and is very comfortable on a long run although the suspension does crash through pot holes. The engine gives good performance, does 50mpg and the car is cheap to tax. But I have come to the end of my tether and have just traded it in for a Honda which I hope will be more reliable. Problems include the dual mass flywheel braking up, electric windows and mirrors that have a mind of there own, front windscreen cracking from top to bottom, engine shield flapping about in the wind, worn suspension bushes, starter motor packing up and I have nether owned a car that goes through tyres so fast three sets in 40k. The final straw was the clutch starting to slip under acceleration. I know all cars can have problems but the 307 seems to have so many I would look elsewhere.
I owned this car, a 51 plate for 1 year and 2 weeks and it was no good!
It seems to chew tyres, and the first MOT racked up 191.00 for me to pay. Things like CV Joint, Suspension Arm, blah blah, stuff I never heard of - all needing done. The driveshaft was very insecure and any time you turned a corner it rattled like hell.
In January, at about 56,500 miles (if even) the clutch started whining, and therefore had went. I decided I wasn't bothering my shirt with this and ran it till the November on the same clutch - clocking up to 62,000 miles.
I had to replace part of the exhaust system, after it fell off and replace the radiator after it started leaking in every corner. It also started leaking oil. Fuel economy is terrible, and build quality isn't that great either. My steering wheel for the mileage got badly worn, as did the drivers seat. The carpets are terribly fitted and all start falling away round the doorsill.
I've lost money in owning this car, however, I like to think I have saved in the long term. It was due it's MOT this month and I got rid of it a day before it to a garage who are trying to sell it on. 300 notes was the estimate for repairs and the fee and I thought - forget that for a game of soldiers. Add that into Road Tax in January, Clutch Replacement, Service, Oil Leak Repair, Timing Belt, Service, and new MOT next November.
Won't be in a rush to buy a Peugeot again!
This was a company car i was given. I had the pleasure of the 307s 1.4 and to be honest and brutal it was awful. The engine was very under powered the gearbox was horrid. The car looked dated and it was not reliable.
I own this car (307 Hatchback - T6 - 2006). I buy it as a second hand ( 11 months old and 19K on bord ) car from Hertz and for me is a good car. It is very well equiped and very quiet . On a good road is running well but on the poor roads it has a little bit hard suspensions , especially thar rear one . Problems - Left retractable electric mirror has failed in the first week . -electric contactor from brake pedal fail and thats all ...fails . Overall I'm satisfied especially about the steering wich is very responsive and the gadgets included (rain sensors , automated light ,cruise control , 5 CD mag. , alloy wheels , etc... I have only 20000km running with it and I hope that I will not be disappointed like others reviewers ...
