    My car

    This is the worst experience in car ownership I have ever had. I have traded the car to get rid of it.

    At 20,000 miles, the catalyst went & needed replacing; at 25,000 miles the brakes totally failed & need a whole new system. Just outside the three-year warranty and with 66,000 miles on the clock, the flywheel went (£1300), then the clutch (£250) and an injector (£700).

    I was advised by Peugeot that I had just been unlucky with the car - they did repair everything under warranty, except the injector, with plenty of arguments. However the injector is still an issue.

    I have since been advised by another Peugeot dealer that if it is the injector, this would cost half what my local dealer quoted. I was further advised by another mechanic that the problem was more likely to be a water pump issue.

    The car has had a couple recalls which I was failed to be told about, one being braking. FSH on the car and I was told at one of them that my discs needed replacing within 3000 miles - I looked at them and they were fine. 12,000 miles later on at the next service, everything was ticked as being OK!

    I would really question anyone buying a Peugeot, and certainly the dealers have been terrible. It's the first and last Peugeot I will ever own, especially as I was told that 66,000 miles was high mileage and to be expected!

    My car

    I have had this car for 7 months and every time l drive it l find it very enjoyable. I dont do a lot of milage and probably use £30.00 pounds worth of fuel a month which covers 270to300 miles much better than my honda accord. This car canalso be driven fast as fast as most and the noise level is very low for deisel. You can hear the radio with-out straining your ears. So full marks for this car!!!

    My car

    I have owned this car for nearly 5 years. I was persuaded to buy it, by the excellent kit which comes as standard ie digital climate control, electric folding mirrors, automatic lights, rain sensor etc. Overall I am very pleased with it. Most of my driving is around Central London and the car is ideal for this, offering good visibility and reasonable economy. I do not get anything like the quoted figures of 40/67/54 but around 32 mpg. That said on a long run it is possible to get 60 mpg but you have to turn the cc off. It is not particularly good to drive on the motorway because it is quite high, and is affected by cross winds. I had the same problem as others with the clutch. When I took it to the dealer, Robins and Day Walton, they told me that they recommended that when the clutch was replaced so should the fly wheel and the total cost would be £1400. I complained that this was unacceptable and unreasonable for this car. Eventually, Peugeot agreed to pick up the bill. Other than that the car has proven a good purchase and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a car for zipping around town. Mine is aluminium (silver) and with the 17 inch alloys still looks good. It is also a little bit different from the usual GTI brigade.

    My car

    This car has been nothing but trouble since day one. I have been unfortunate enough to own this since November 2006. It is not only the worst car I have driven,it has cost me a small fortune.

    When you look closely at the interior it is slap dash....the carpet does not fit properly, hanging down over the brakes and coming away from the trims. Mechanically I have had new brakes, a new clutch, four new tyres, a new gearbox, a new diesel filter and the electric wing mirrors have gone wrong countless times. I too, like many others, bought this car because of the way it looks. I did not listen to the advice on this site thinking I knew better. I didn't and I wish I had listened. If anyone has any sense, they will not buy this car.
