Summary:

Awesome

Faults:

Fault in tyre pressure sensor due to valve breaking.

General Comments:

Outstanding performance and roadholding. This is a real Q-car due to the fact that most 407 SW's are 1.6 or 2.0.

Outstanding long distance tourer and practical working car.

Great finish with all the kit and toys, although with so much extras as standard, there are of course more things to go wrong.

Tyres are expensive.

Previous carMitsubishi Galant

Summary:

Draws you in with its beautiful looks, then steals your wallet

Faults:

ABS sensors (2 rear).

Ball joints.

Squeaky brakes.

3 fuel injectors.

Dash display.

General Comments:

I really liked this car.

It was very comfortable. Contrary to what you may read elsewhere online, I found the seat very easy to adjust to a comfortable driving position.

Handles very well. Better than any of its competition in mid range large family cars.

The engine is smooth and refined, but not quite as responsive as the HDi in the newer VW Passats.

Was very fuel efficient (48mpg with mixed use) even with faulty fuel injectors. Great mpg offset by regular repairs.

The panoramic roof is a fantastic gimmick that quickly becomes boring.

Lots of electrical toys like seat adjusters etc.

De-pollution system is very expensive to maintain.

Any repairs seem to be comparatively expensive.

Previous carVauxhall Vectra

Summary:

More fun than previous german cars, and a genuine pleasure to drive

Faults:

Creaking drivers seat. Dealer replaced. Problem sorted.

General Comments:

This car is very quick and pulls extremely smooth due to the twin turbo. Turbo lag almost eliminated. Handles like it's on rails (nearly as good as my old 405 Mi16, only let down by the car being heavier).

As with all Peugeot's, that perfect balance between grip, comfort and body roll.

Oh! Beautiful machine. The Peugeot 407 is now in its fifth year from beginning of production, and her quality is mature.

So her reliability is worthy of Peugeot's long reputation of being a high quality marque, I believe.

Especially your version, the 2.2-litre turbodiesel is the best variant of whole 407 series, for excellent engineering and respectable economy. Above all, she is said to reach 150mph (240km/h) in a well loosened-up example, despite manufacturer's data of 137mph (220km/h)! It's astonishing for a 170bhp motor.

Along with it, the V6 variants of 407, both 3.0 V6 petrol and 2.7 V6 diesel guises, can reach 155mph (250km/h) on several occasions, much faster than quoted data of 143mph (230km/h).

The high standard of compromise between total comfort and cruising ability, is the very tradition of the Peugeot brand, so the newest 407 is on it.

Summary:

Very solid car

Faults:

Car not starting very well, went to Peugeot dealer who said it had a lazy starter. They then told me the car would have to be in the garage for 3 days. When I asked why, they said it needed a new flywheel as well, but would be covered by the warranty.

Car has not even done 20000 miles yet.

General Comments:

The 407 is a very good and comfortable car, and was a replacement for a 307, which I had no problems with.

Checked out reviews on Internet about 407, and was very surprised with what I read.

Summary:

Great relaxing cruiser with lots of toys

Faults:

No faults so far.

General Comments:

Excellent, effortless long distance cruiser. Great seats, smooth ride and refined engine.

Plenty of standard kit including an excellent sat nav and integral car phone system. Good quality leather trim.

Regularly does a 300 mile run in a single stint and I arrive feeling fresh.

Doesn't feel quick, but the speedo shows you're usually doing 20-30 mph more than you thought.

Seems well made and durable. Weird styling. So-so dealers.

30 minute "Eco mode" on the entertainment system is irritating.
