Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Peugeot 307 hatchback?

JD Power customer satisfaction surveys show that 307 owners are most unhappy with mechanical reliability and interior quality, but they're also not chuffed with exterior quality, vehicle performance or dealer service either. So, there's a lengthy checklist of potential problems.

Indicator stalks can fail, so make sure every function on them works and that they feel solid when you take a test drive. Head gaskets often give up the ghost on some early 1.4 petrols, so avoid them unless you're handy with a spanner or fancy becoming a generous benefactor to your local workshop.
