Back in May 2002 I picked up my nice new and shiny Peugeot 307 only to find out that it had some problems. Such as the headlights would turn themselves on, at this time I was told that I have auto head light, which it didn't! Also at the same time the car would make this strange beeping noise when you started the car (Which still happens to this day) and indicators not staying on when turning right. Now 7 months on the car has been in the garage more times than I can remember with electrical problems where everything electrical would cut, but the engine would still run. Also shabby workmanship on interior, Pug badges falling off, brake line hanging from the bottom of the car and horn not working. Now its got an engine problem especially in the mornings or starting from cold, the car will not stay turning over, it just splutters and dies with an unhappy rev counter. Then another is cutting out when driving or coming to a stop.
The main thing is I have 2 Peugeot dealers looking at the car and now Peugeot UK are involved. Last week on the 2nd November the car was in the shop for a week this time for them to track down the problems. They told me that everything would be fine now after replacing few parts such as a part called a coms 2000 unit which I am now on my 4th or 5th. Then for the electrical problems they blamed the computer again and reprogrammed that for the 5th time. And for the engine they fitted a new part which I don't know what was called. Then I asked them have they sorted out the problem where when the car is started from time to time it makes a metal on metal grinding sound, I was then told it sounds like you need a new starter motor which, I have to go back again for them to look at it.
Well now after 7 months all I have fixed is the horn (so far after being fixed 3 times) and the carped refitted (x2) I can finally indicate right without having to hold it on, Yippy!
Now a strange problem is on the radio; all I can pick up is BBC Radio lol and the emergency warning lights don't work.
After all that I just want to get rid of the damn thing, but no one seems interested. Peugeot UK have taken an interest that's why it was in the shop for a week so some one can make a report, but it looks like that's going nowhere. Both garages keep saying "We will fix it this time." Now they want to send it up to Coventry so Peugeot UK can have a look, but I can't see this helping???
I have lost all faith in the car totally its like I'm waiting for something to happen next...
Can anyone give me any advice on sending the car back.
But the strange thing is I do like the 307 but I just want one that works. I have even asked the Peugeot dealer if they would like to buy it back, you can guess what they said "No thanks."
I rang the dealer that sold me the car and was told that Peugeot didn't want to send it up to Coventry. Now they want it for another week on the 16th Nov.
Rang Peugeot UK last night and they told me that they where not in the business of replacing cars. Then was told they didn't have an intrest in the car.
Does anyone know what I can do to get them to take this car back??
