What should I look for in a used Peugeot 607 saloon?
Big French saloons are never great at retaining their value, and this car is no exception. The prices are better than some Peugeot predecessors, but find one in good condition with low miles, and it could be a bargain.
The fuel economy of the diesel models is excellent, with all offering at least 40mpg. The 2.0-litre 110bhp unit gives the best performance, with 47mpg. If you want to stay off fuel station forecourts, avoid the petrols; the 3.0-litre V6 only returns 28mpg.
The car's insurance rating averages group 16, which means the cost of cover is comparable with rivals.
Getting a 607 serviced will be easy enough, although data from Warranty Direct suggest Peugeot's maintenance and repair bills are above the industry average. Spares could be an issue if you have an accident, because the comparative rarity of the 607 on UK roads means parts may take longer to source.
