A beautiful, comfortable car with lots of space.

Drives well, handles well, brakes well.

Pity about all its problems, which makes one forget the luxury of the car.

Don't buy one if you want to stay married to a mechanic.

Will not buy one again, its service is expensive, and it's only Peugeot mechanics who can repair any faults.

Summary:

Could be better with a improved after sale service

Faults:

Anti Pollution faults appeared after every service, just to be cleared at the cars service interval. (45000km later Peugeot still could not resolve this issue.

I had the luxury to be stranded next the road with electrical problems.

My driver side airbags deployed on a gravel road with no side impact damage what so ever.

General Comments:

Although it is a wonderful car to drive the after sale service and reapearing problems on the electronics leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

I experienced similar problems: First I was left stranded next to the road after an electronics fault. After receiving it back from the dealership (it took a week), the spare key was not working and an anti-pollution fault registered.

Whilst trying to re-program the spare key, a second electronic fault occurred, according to the dealership it was linked to the first fault. The anti-pollution fault was still not rectified. The car was returned and the anti-pollution fault reset, just to return within 10 kilometers!

I took the car to a second dealership and they identified a third and fourth fault. The anti-pollution fault was reset, just to return the next day. I am now returning it for the third time to the second dealership. The only support that I received as yet from Peugeot SA was a 30% discount on one of the parts. It is now almost two months since the initial fault and the car is still not fixed. A courtesy was not made available during any one of the services and I had to endure extreme inconvenience. I do have serious concerns regarding the diagnostics and ability to rectify problems. During the process the staff at both dealerships were extremely friendly, but that is not all that is required by clients - I would love to have my car fixed - the first time!
