I have owned this car for 3 years (company car), and am planning to continue to own it after covering 53,000 miles. It has only been recovered once, this was due to a turbo failure which was repaired under warranty (whole system replaced). Front swivel joints have been replaced both sides and the EGR valve was replaced. It is on its third set of front tyres. The Michelins being better than the original P7s (quieter, better road holding). Economy has been superb. Fully laden down to Hungary, including stretches on the autobahns at 200km/h (125mph) and average fuel consumption for 3000 mile trip was 44mpg. Driver comfort superb - 600 miles a day no problem. Tank range typically 550 - 600 miles, and have had trip computer suggest range of up to 750 miles (I was driving carefully). Currently waiting for first MOT. Like the driving position, gadgets, chuckability and phenominal road holding. Dislike trafficmaster satnav, rear visibility. Everything else is fine.
Owned the car for 15 months now it has one month left of warrenty Generally I like this car it is probably one of the nicest looking estate cars currently available, However here's where the faults are: 4 new speed sensers 2 on the same wheel one new internal computer 2 wheel bearing 23,000 miles 1 front suspension rear window vibrations front brakes and wheel discs new towbar electrics as they were sending the wrong signal to the parking senser Bulb sensors x 4 power steering pump smart nav gps apart from these faults I do like the car however the warrenty is out next month and I think I will need to move it on I will say the peugeot garage has been excellent
I wrote a fairly negative review 28/09/08 and things have got worse.Buying this car is my biggest motoring regret in 25yrs. Another valve shot off costing another £125. Peugeot STILL refuse to accept that a these valves are a danger to drivers.Vosa are looking into this but by the time it is sorted these cars will all be scrapped. what is factually a good engine is surrounded by inferior rubbish. i Have owned this car now 11 months and with the recent ball joint repair i have spent nearly £1000 just replacing parts. These cars can be bought brand new for the price of a small hatch...don't be fooled as peugeot will make a small fortune out of consumers just trying to keep this heap of rubbish on the road.
Purchase it second hand 06 plate from Peugeot dealer in Cardiff at the end of March 08 and since then it has been in the dealers for repair on and off a total of a month it has broken down 3 times (diesel pump ant valve) and had at least 15 other problems with it. I now want them to take it back. It is a shame as when it does work it is a lovely drive, but it has been in the dealer garage for the last two and half weeks. I have owned a 206 and a 307 in the past and had no problems.
