2005 Peugeot 1007 Sport 1.4 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland

Summary:

The remote control doors continue to turn heads

Faults:

At 30000 miles the diesel engine suffered from blocked injectors, and was expensive to clean.

General Comments:

The most noticeable thing about the Peugeot 1007 is its sliding front doors. Several cars have sliders at the rear, but this is the only car I have ever seen that has a slider for the driver. They are electrically operated either by a button on the dash, or by moving the handle, or by pressing a button on the remote control.

Not only do sliding doors give easier access in tight parking spaces etc, but also when returning to your car parked on a busy road, by using the r/c, the door can be open ready for you to jump straight in so you don't have to stand for any longer than you have to in dangerous traffic.

It has a high seating position with plenty of headroom.

For driver and front passenger comfort, there is loads of space.

The two rear seats are quite cramped, and are only suitable for children.

Most of the time I use mine with the rear seats collapsed. And this then gives enough space to get 3 dogs in the boot.

Under the bonnet, the 1.4 engine struggles and I wish that I had taken the 1.6 option instead.

As with so many small cars, the engine components are all so squashed together that to make even simple repairs, often other parts have to be removed from the engine first simply to gain access, and this pushes repair bills up.

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

Never ever buy this crap Peugeot 1007!!! The doors made me mad!!! Does not lock, once locked it opens immediately, or if I lock the door, I could not unlock with remote or manual open does not work; had to remove the bonnet to access the battery, and disconnect the battery for a short while, then once I connect the battery, I can immediately unlock the door with the remote. If I delay for more than 5 seconds, I have to remove the battery again!!!
