    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.

    My car

    Where do i start? She looks good, aegean blue and full spec, i bought her because she looks good and had wing mirrors that fold in when you lock her(i live on a busy main rd and had to buy loads for my old car) I have sold my 307 today (and not before time either). It all started not long after i bought my car and everything that went wrong was not covered by warranty( i bought it from a used car dealer not pug dealer). Diesel filter blocked, diesel additive low. Now for these 2 problems my dealer told me £2500, yes thats right, £2500. Along with this asr/esp not functioning, horn, clutch, crankshaft pulley, electric window on passenger side, uneven wear on tyres that cost a fortune, a weird noise when you get new tyres, it goes after about 2000 miles, vibration on steering wheel, carpets dont fit, sometimes unlocks itself and for a 2 ltr diesel it does 31mpg. I have bought a ford galaxy, hope i have more luck. I had a 306 before and loved it, but, i will now say NEVER AGAIN. I hope that nobody buys that car. Please dont buy one.
