    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.

    My car

    I have owned this car for the last 3 years and in all fairness running costs have been minimal and the car meets all my needs.

    I am now entering a period where everything seems to be going wrong which includes Headlights blowing on a consistent basis, a squeeling clutch whenever I pull off which I have been told is the clutch release bearing and I will need a new clutch to remove the squeak and within the last 2 months I have a leak in the Driver side footwell which 3 garages cannot pinpoint where the problem is coming from. The floor at times squelches.

    Time I feel to trade it in a do without the stress. If anyone has envcountered these problems and knows a remedy to fix it, let me know.

    My car

    I got my 52 reg in Feb ’07 @ 24k miles with FSH at a Peugeot dealer. Its now at 38k. Faults include;

    ABS light coming on & showing various faults. Knocking noise from the engine under acceleration which is intermittent & inaudible to Peugeot technicians Knocking noise from rear suspension & from steering column / dashboard Exhaust manifold gasket broke Poor starting when left over night in cold weather, even though its kept in a garage High oil consumption (no leaks or smoke) Passenger seat doesn’t click back on the slider – somethings come loose that you have to push along the rail

    The engine & transmission refinement can be described as agricultural, the driving experience is dull, build quality is very poor & the only thing the car does reliably is to develop further faults. Oh, and the dealer back-up is shambolic.

    Having spoken to other 307 owners, its common for exhausts & clutches to fail at about 40k miles so I’m getting rid. Fault free, on a good day, the cars worth £4,500 – this time next year I reckon I’d be lucky to get £2k.

    On the upside the car is fast, is phenomenally well equipped for its class. Although I hardly drive it like a nun would, I still get 45mpg. The average consumption stays around 33-35 mpg.

    All in all, however, if it wasn’t for the need to carry luggage & passengers, I would rather transport myself from A to B by sticking a firework up my behind and pointing myself in the appropriate direction.
