2004 Peugeot 307 XS 1.4 16v


Beautiful, the best I've ever owned



General Comments:

It is a joy to look at, a joy to be a passenger in, and most importantly, a joy to own and drive.

Smooth engine and comfortable with good handling, much better than the last two Volkswagen products I have had.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2002 Peugeot 307 XR 1.6 petrol


Bad fuel consumption, ridiculous steering precision. I don't like it any more


The lever of the indicator six times; first time at 100 km, and then every 10,000 km, always changed by the dealer on guarantee.

The oil level gauge sensor three times, first time when new, always changed by the dealer on guarantee.

The rear axle has a cast that makes the rear left wheel have bad alignment. It happened at 63,000km. The dealer is going to replace with no charge.

General Comments:

The car is spacious, especially at the front. The cream interior gives a lightness that adds class. The wood-like touches are very realistic.

The car has the strongest engine in its class, according to the magazines, but it's very much controlled by the electronics for the emission control laws. The gas pedal driven by wire is a disaster, especially when you want to accelerate immediately.

The classic french comfort is not so present; the car is more firm than previous Peugeots, it's like a German car.

The front armrests are at wrong height, and are not adjustable. My Range Rover's armrests were perfect.

The economy with the A/C on, almost always on in Cyprus, cannot be less than 8.2lt/100km.

Some strange noises under the car, maybe the exhaust pipe, must be avoided, and you have to live with them. The doors crackle when on bad tarmac or when the body is under torsion. I didn't have that even with my old Golf I.

The steering is not so precise. The electro-hydraulic power assist, and is not a good invention. I think that this happens on every modern car.
