    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.

    My car

    I bought a 1.6 LX 5 door hatchback (showroom car) in Nov 01 from a franchised dealership.

    Unfortunately, I too have had many problems, some minor and some not so minor. I have tried to reject the car on several occasions, but the dealer has only ever been interested in rectifying matters again and again and again.

    From my experience, rejecting a car, without taking legal action, is almost impossible. Never mind, I list below as many of the niggles/problems as I can remember!

    On delivery, the car was left in economy mode, which meant that when the engine was not running, no interior lights or electrical equipment worked to enable you to see to get into or out of the car. Not very helpful in the middle of winter! After the dealer switched the mode to normal, the interior lights still did not work correctly. I sorted it out myself after reading the owner's manual as the dealers' staff did not seem to know what the problem was.

    My car

    I own the 2.0 dturbo three-door 2002.

    I wish I had kept my Seat Leon 110 sports diesel. It was a superior car all round. Keep trying Peugeot!

    My car

    It was bought on the September 2nd, 2004 and has just done 1000 miles, so this is an early view of the car so far.

    No faults have occured so far and I am very pleased with my purchase. Outside the car was presented very well in pearlescent blue.

    Inside there were no problems with good-quality plastics and trim. As far as driving the car goes, there a couple of points to raise. Firstly, the clutch bites quite high up and takes a while to get used to. Secondly, the 1.4 engine is a new 16 valve unit and is smooth, but you still have to give it a bit more through the gears to move it on due to the weight of the car.

    I would still rate the car very highly and am very pleased with my purchase of my first Peugeot.
