Burning smell after two weeks, four attempts to correct - unresolved and the reason the car was replaced after six months.
Odometer replaced. This changed itself into kilometers at 1800 miles, whilst at the dealer's for previous fault (burning smell). It jumped from 1800 to 2800 which was very alarming. Dealer did not believe me and I was made to feel that I was lying to them. Their diagnostic computer was unable to recognize the problem and it took me to work out what had happened. They tried to wash their hands of the problem saying that they needed further proof that this had happened.
Carpet on passenger's side came unstuck - dealer did managed to correct this!
Driver's side carpet coming away from doorway.
Car broke down on two occasions, AA called, who said battery was draining, but could not find out why.
Car felt very sluggish from day one.
Dealer service very bad, until highest management involved.
This is our first experience of a brand new car and a very disappointing one! After only two weeks we discovered that the "new" smell was not wearing off.
Initially told to contact Peugeot Assistance rather than take car back to dealer.
Dealer unable to find cause of burning smell, suggested plastic bag caught under car, but initially disproved this. Lied to on second attempt when bag supposedly found.
Wrangle with dealer concerning correction of odometer reading. Did not feel that a car so young should have incorrect mileage recorded. Dealer eventually paid outside company to rectify new odometer reading.
Third attempt at smell correction revealed moldy pollen filter, which was not the cause of the problem! Some kind of resistance pack was overheating and was replaced, but again problem did not resolve after this.
Dealer admitted defeat on fourth attempt and made deal with Peugeot to replace car at no cost to me (new 03 reg).
Car broke down on two occasions after dealer had agreed to replace it.
Constant persistence by myself causing much stress got me a new car which is presently running well, and is so far only two weeks old, but has had to have a new comms 2000 unit fitted already because the indicators failed! Watch this space!
Despite all this still on good terms with dealer who did fix new car very promptly this time.
