    My car

    I drive the SE Auto. The tiptronic gearbox is a joy and, allied to cruise control, an optional feature I purchased, it is wonderful on motorways.

    I found that by switching over to cruise control, the return mpg increased dramatically. The model I had delivered had a new air-con climate-control system. It is now dual zone, and is very comfortable. Its only drawback is that, if you get into the car on a very hot day, you need to switch over to manual control air-con, turn the fan on full and the zone settings to low, that way the cabin will cool quicker.

    Driving is a joy. It's very comfortable, very passenger friendly with lots of nice touches that make long journeys far more bearable.

    The CD system, mono or multichange, is terrific - although I miss the cassette option.

    Overall, I am extremely pleased, and I cannot understand why this car is slipping in the motoring press ratings. It is still a class leader, and it has kept up with the best.

    My car

    This is my second 307, the first one being an SW 2.0HDi SE. The hatchback XSi 1.6 HDi is far more zippy to drive and far more economical. The interior is very well laid out and fits my 23 stone 6 foot frame very nicely.

    It avereges 54 mpg looks nice and I can't fault it for comfort and running costs main dealer servicing is very expensive and a complete rip off and would do it myself if it wasn't for the waranty. The car cost £11,000 and was seven months old when I bought it. I found the dealer very good.

    My car

    Pros:

    Aesthetically pleasing design Roomy Quiet (when at low speeds) Stylish Comfortable Practicality Price - a lot of car for the money Hard-wearing interior

    Cons:

    Slow (at the lower end of the scale - it livens up after 50mph) Poor reliability (referring to minor electrical glitches and gremlins - NOT major mechanical issues) Abysmal dealer/service performance - shoddy service on car, returned dirty, poor condition of courtesy cars, bad service personel attitude etc. High running costs Mediocre drive (at best) Too many rattles Eats tyres

    Would I recommend it? Two years ago, yes - now, sorry Peugeot, no.

    My car

    My wife has a problem with her back, this car is one of the very few that she has been able to drive without any pain the adjustments are great and I feel that this must be of some importance especially with women.

    The car itself feels safe on the road and rides high, which helps to make you feel secure. I did not notice a lot of road noise, I feel that the critism could be said for many cars if you are unlucky then so be it, every car has its faults, but I feel that it certainly has a lot of good points.
