What should I look for in a used Peugeot 407 estate?

The 407 SW shows all the signs of being the best-built Peugeot estate yet. The company has worked hard to raise the quality on this car and its shows.

There have been isolated reports of problems with the HDi diesels. Watch for any that run roughly at idle or fail to rev cleanly and consistently. Injector problems, sticky throttles or trouble with the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve may be the cause. A few have even blown their turbos.

Don't touch any car without a full service history. Many used 407 SWs were fleet cars, which means they will have been maintained properly, so there's no reason to risk a car with patchy maintenance. A proper service record is also essential if the car is still within its original three-year/60,000-mile warranty.
