    My car

    I have had this Peugeot 307 HDI 90 five-door as a hire car for 2 weeks, while my 306 GTi is in for some body work repairs. It is the first "modern" diesel I have driven. Good and bad points as follows:

    Good points: Very practical Huge inside with lots of cubby holes and storage areas Comfortable to drive, although I'm 6ft and feel a little "dwarfed" by the car - not an intimate car by any means

    Not so good points: No power from this 90bhp engine - slow, slow, slow... Drive train shunt in traffic You know you are in a diesel - lumpy idle most prominent

    Overall: Not bad, but nowhere near as fun as the 306, lumpy idle, drive train shunt and lack of power ruin the experience!

    My car

    I bought this Peugeot 307 about two months ago, before this I used to own a Fiat Brava. Compared with the Fiat Brava, this car is a masterpiece. In my opinion Peugeot has created a really good car.

    I have the 2.0-litre petrol in a three-door version in black. I decided to make it look like a hot hatch and so I have bought all the sports parts. Currently I am in the process of installing the sound at the back of the car to make it look much sportier.

    I have nothing wrong to say about this car, untill now, touch wood, it has always worked fine and without any problems. In Malta a car has to be of high quality since we have a lot of potholes over here! Keep it up Peugeot!

    My car

    This is an excellent car after the Chevies, Toyotas, Mitsubishis etc etc I have had. The roads in Brazil are probably amongst the worst in the world but the 307 is a dream. Equipment is excellent and I have never had a problem.

    When I can find good stretches of road, I cruise around 160-180 kmh and the car has plenty left in it. Overtaking - the trick is to find the right revs in the right range obviously. I have seen a few whinging about this car - all I can say is they have never extended the machine!! This is probably no wonder in Britain and Europe with all the road rules etc. I feel sorry for you all as this car is really a performance-cost wonder for a "small" 2.0 litre vehicle!

    My car

    I think it is a nice drive goes through corners and bends well at speed. Plenty of space for me my wife and three kids with a pram and shopping, which will all fit in the boot.

    Unfortunately, in the one year I have owned the car, it has been back to the dealers seven times with reoccuring faults such as back of driver's seat keeps coming apart and the anti-pollution warning light keeps coming on and when it does the engine smells eggy and the dealers keep saying they have fixed the problem but a month later the same happens again.

    I will definitely be getting rid of this car before my warranty runs out, that's how much faith I have in it.
