2003 Peugeot 307 Rapier 1.6 16v from UK and Ireland
I previously had a 307 of the same specification. However, after 1 week it started to suffer from electrical faults and never really recovered, even after many visits to the dealer.
In the end, I quoted section 14 of the sales of goods act, wrote them a letter and they changed it for a brand new car.
The only fault so far is a clicking noise from the clutch pedal when released, but I'll wait until the 6000 mile service before taking it in.
Compared to the last 307, the perfomance in unbelievably better. The last one felt as if I was driving with the brakes on.
Also, it feels much better in the build department - no rattles or squeaks.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Do you have any steering tremors at 70-75mph?

No, I've taken it up to 80mph, and have suffered nothing that I would consider to be a problem. I have however seen this mentioned before, and from what I can remember they can adjust the steering to resolve this problem.

I have the same electrical problems listed by the other owners in my 307 XS 1,6 automatic, so I have updated the software, but without success!!!
I think an electrical component creates conflicts with MULTIPLEX, but I don't know what, so I ask you: Have you installed car-alarm? I think is car-alarm that works wrong, but I'm not sure. Now I have disconnected the alarm and the problems seem solved. Can I be sure??
Until now, two times the electrical brake assistant, ABS and EBC failed.
I think it is not a little problem and I hope Peugeot solve it soon!!!
