I bought this car new in March 2007. I have had peugeots for the last 6 years and been very pleased with one notable exception, my other 807! The first one I had was 6 months old when I bought it and it was a nightmare! Electrical faults faulty tyre sensors, bits falling off the works! I liked the look of the car and the drive but I needed something reliable so I changed it after 2 months. I run a mobility dealership and have an eldely mother so I needed a car that was large enough to carry a big scooter and also comfortable enough for my mother. I bought the latest car in March this year after reading many reviews and thinking that maybe the one I had before was just a glitch. This one is a 110 hdi. The drive is not to bad and there is plenty of power there when you need it. The gear box is very good too. If only i could say the same about the elcetrics. Within a week of buying the car I started getting fault warnings, then a burning smell from the dash. The main swithcing unit "Comms 2000" had packed up. I took it back to the dealer and they fitted a new one. When i picked the car up there were scratches on the back bumper and a small dent in the side door, they told me they did not do this. Since then it keeps going wrong . I have had 4 new "comms 2000" units. The car is still faulty. I have ha so many faults i cannot recommed this car to anyone.
Update to my previous review in February... now I have more problems.
Since February, when the clutch went wrong, I have broken down in this car three times, partly due to a poorly fitted repacement clutch but also due to a fault in the turbo hose (another £135)!
Then one of the rear quarterlight windows fell out - no one had touched it or used it since last summer and it just fell out, damaging the paintwork. Autoglass put it back in and Peugeot blamed it on the hot weather and poor quality glue... er, isn't this car from France, where it can get really really hot? Total rubbish.
Now the indicator keeps going wrong intermittently, the electric doors stopped working completely from the key fob or the internal switches. Then, as if by magic, they started working again. The central locking works when it feels like it and the lack of power at under 2000rpm has returned!
I am now seriously considering a Ford S-Max and cannot wait to ditch this car. Do not consider buying one, even if it is half-price, as the cost of running it will far outweigh any savings you might make on the price. The drive of your life? My a**e!
We've had nothing but trouble since the day we bought this car. I agree with some other reviews that the build quality is very bad, switches fall off the electric seats, door trims come away from the doors with ease. To say these cars have been built with the family in mind is almost laughable, the plastics are very flimsy and the seats are much to heavy for me to remove...... We've had a sliding door handle stop working, a rattle in the door that the garage couldn't fix (my husband fixed it) and an 'Automatic Gear Fault' that's going to cost another £800+..... there's enough other good mpv's around so don't buy one of these....
