27th Aug 2003, 07:24

Well, I just stumbled across this review that I wrote almost 2 years ago... What a pile of crap this car turned into.. The Dealers (Howards of Taunton - an alleged Gold Lion dealer) have been very unhelpful and on complaining to Peugeot UK - they couldn't care less and said that it was the dealers responsibility.. Here are the scores on the doors...

First 1000 miles - oil leak - dealer says "no way" - until inspected

First 1000 miles - brake pads squealing - dealer replaces

4000 Miles - Squeaky sunroof - Dealer has "a look"

4100 Miles - Squeakier sunroof - Dealer may replace

4300 Miles - Squeakiest sunroof - Dealer replaces

8700 Miles - Sunroof Still squeaking - Dealer adds rubber pads

9000 Miles - Passenger Seat Stuck in position - Dealer frees

9500 Miles - Passenger Seat Stuck again - Dealer will replace - part on order

10000 Miles - Left car with dealer for a day - wrong seatframe ordered

10500 Miles - Left car with dealer for a day - wrong seatframe ordered

11000 Miles - Hurray! Seat fixed!

12000 Miles - Service - Car comes back with missing roof clip

14000 Miles - Engine fails to maintain revs at tickover - ECU Updated

17000 Miles - Sunroof squeaking - who cares anymore?

17500 Miles - Airbag warning light - Dealer has car for day - ECU Updated

19000 Miles - Alarm starts to go off when left parked - ECU Updated

20000 Miles - Front End Collision - Ooops! - Swear ABS didn't kick in..

23000 Miles - Interior door handle snapped off

24000 Miles - Service - Dealer trys to charge £27.90 to replace £6.70 handle - may have mentioned some of the above faults!!

25500 Miles - Passenger Seat won't lock in place. New Rails ordered and fitted.

Ah well - only 10 months til the contract runs out!!!
