Summary:

Great car so far

Faults:

Nothing thank God.

General Comments:

The performance is not as perky as the 2.0 petrol 806 we had nor the Galaxy 2.3 we had, but its just fine.

The economy is well up on the two others.

Family loves the space (and electric doors!)

Runs well, but it has only been 5 weeks so far!

Still in love (with the car) and so is my wife (with the car too)

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Disappointing

Faults:

Intermittent power loss.

General Comments:

Peugeot (after sales) Customer Service is inadequate.

I find the drivers position uncomfortable on long drives due to lack of leg room.

Quite comfortable on short drives.

Could do with seats that provide side support (for those corners).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Summary:

Great company car, but I wouldn't want to pay to run it myself

Faults:

Grab handle broke far too easily when used for the purpose it's designed for.

Seat runner covers have nearly all broken from one time to another.

The seal between the front doors and the air flow to the rear compartment has never fitted properly. It still doesn't even though Peugeot say it's fixed. They've now agreed it's not as bad on other 807s.

Fuel economy is poor - the trip computer shows 31mpg from the 2.2HDi engine used mostly on motorways.

The rear blinds have both been damaged due to a problematic design feature. Although this damage was my fault it could have been designed out by Peugeot.

The built in hands free car kit that comes as standard issue with the Satellite Navigation system cannot be used above 40mph. Otherwise the road noise for the person who is talking with you on the other end of the phone is unbearable. Peugeot have examined this and found no fault, but have also not been able to make any improvement.

General Comments:

The car is well designed and thought out, but not necessarily well executed.

I like the features such as electric rear opening doors and rotatable seats.

The satellite navigation system is good although not as comprehensive as some of my colleagues - it does not have traffic updates built in, nor can you set a destination by post code. However it gets you to where you want to go!

The seating is tight for 7 people. You'd only want toddlers in the back two seats. Look at the photographs in the brochure and you'll see that the front row of seats are pushed quite forward. This means that with me at the driving seat (190cm) and an adult behind me there is virtually zero, maybe 10cm, of legroom for the back row. Of course with three rows you also have the smallest amount of space for luggage.

The 2.2HDi engine is smooth and strong, but I'm disappointed by the mpg that is reported by the built in trip computer. 31mpg is far from good for a diesel. It's also very poor on the emissions - an important issue for those of you paying company car tax.

Overall I like the car - it's very car, not van, like. But the build quality is more becoming of it's Fiat brother. Don't get me wrong it's reliable and well designed, but I don't know that I wouldn't go for an Espace or even large estate car in the future.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

This is spot on.

I've had very similar problems with my 807, especially fuel economy.

I too agree to all the comments in review. I had many problem mainly with the alarm. I had approx. 20 different problems. I own a 2.2 HDI. What ever you do make sure you do not get the latest computer upgrade. I have top of the range model and had many problems after the computer upgrade. The head light in one big issues make sure you get a document of what is change and what is not.
