    My car

    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 ...

    My car

    There are some things about this car that I like but these are far outweighed by those that I don't.

    The equipment level is good and the handling, although no ford focus, is fair. However the ride is firm and crashes over potholes and the reliability is very very poor.

    The list of problems includes faulty electric windows which have been "fixed" by Peugeot many many times. The clutch and flywheel have both been replaced at about 36,000 miles. The brake discs and pads are constantly being replaced. A plastic tray underneath the car flaps about and you can hear it constantly as you are driving. There are clonks and rattles from the rear suspension and the steering, the indicators like to turn themselves on in the opposite direction when you cancel them, all the interior trim seems to squeak and rattle. It was broken into quite easily whilst alledgedly deadlocked. There are too many faults overall to list them all but you get the picture.

    All of the above would be made slightly more bearable, were the dealers able to find the problems and fix them in a reasonable period of time, I would suggest they employ trained chimps, they would do a better job.

    It will be three years old next April and will have done nearly 100,000 miles if it makes it that far. It will be replaced by a ford focus. I would not recommend a Peugeot 307 to anyone!

    My car

    307 1.4s 16V - 53 Well, this car was fine till this week. It has been a good town car, comfy to drive apart from the high pedal position. However over the last year we have been doing longer trips which seem to have taken there toll on the car. Today it went for its yearly full service and MOT at a nationwide auto centre and it needs countless things repairing: New springs, New cam belt, Front pads, front discs. total of about £700. Oh and last week the exhaust fell off while my wife and daughter were on the motorway costing £280 to replace. So we have spent £1000 (a third of the value) this month. It is only 5 years old and has under 50,000 on the clock. My advise would be to steer well clear of these cars! How can a well looked after, 5 year old car require £1000 worth of work??! Never again will we purchase a Peugeot.

    My car

    I`ve now owned my 307 for 12 months. It`s on a 54- plate so just before the revised front end. It has been a brilliant car in everyway. I`ve covered just over 40,000 miles with little or no problems. The only cost has been to service and replace the usual tyres and brake pads. From some of the reviews on here there are rather a few lemon 307`s about. I can asure you it really hasen`t had a easy time whilst it`s been in my ownership. It gets hammered up and down the motorway and thrashed down country lanes and still keeps going. I paid £7500 for it and it had 31,000 miles on the clock with 2 previous owners. All i can reccommend is never get any problems fixed at the main dealers as all they ever want to do is take the p**s and you never get treated well at all. You are always best heading to an independant garage if the item which has failed isn`t covered under warrenty. I plan to keep this current 307 for another year maybe longer and then leave the peaugeot scene all together and head back onto the skoda`s which do have a top quality build and excellent reliability as it`s under the VW group.
