Summary:

It's the worst car ever

Faults:

Gear box became noisy at 200km.

The airbags stopped working at 15000km.

I had to replace the horn 12 times in 5 years (at the dealer).

Tail light and head light had to be replaced every once in a while.

Gearbox gave up at 90000km.

Indicator and light knob stopped working at 60000km, and when the lights are on, the horn stops working.

I had my alternator changed at 50000km.

I had my radiator changed at 40000km, and still the car overheats.

The windshield stopped working at 75000km.

I had to change the front wheel rotators twice once at 60000km, and once at 80000km.

The AC radiator broke down.

And the AC's fan motor stopped working.

The CD player never played a single time without problems, and the eject button didn't work

The digital screen stopped working at 45000km after going over a speed bump.

General Comments:

In general, the Peugeot rides really well. I love the way it goes and its handling.

But in term of quality and reliability, it's a really bad car.

I wish I had never bought it. Here in Lebanon, I had to pay 16500$ for it, and it comes without warranty.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Summary:

Suparb... the best deal ever

Faults:

I do not have serious problems with my 307, but couple of miner things went wrong.

1- The RD'S radio system does not work properly, and always store different channels. This led the dealer to switch off the RD'S

2- The oil indicator sometimes does not read correctly

3- The left front signal does not operate correctly, since the socket led malted

4- The major problem that happens to my car was when I installed Pioneer amplifier and two speakers. The Pioneer dealer had to connect a cable from the battery to the amplifier, but they did not properly seal the hole where the cable goes inside the car which led the water to leakage in the inboard computer and burn it.

General Comments:

My 307 is really great, I enjoy driving it, and it handles quite well specially on mountains curves. Where in the city it runs very smoothly and you can park it everywhere.

The 1.6 engine is quite powerful compared to other car in its class, when it comes to fuel economy it is really impressive and almost the same as my girlfriend's 1.4 Volka Wagon Polo 2004.

The cabin is roomy and comfortable even that I have the 3 doors model, the air condition is very effective and I hardly set it to the high level. In addition, all the buttons and switches in the dash board are placed in the right position so the drive doesn't need to take his eyes of the road.

What makes me love this car is the dealer, everybody at the workshop is processional and they know exactly how to solve any problem.

I have 32000Km on my clock and it is wonderful.

My next car will be either the 307 cc 180 hp or the 307 2.0 manual.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
