2004 Peugeot 307 HDI DTurbo 1.9 110 Tdi from UK and Ireland
Nice interior, shame about all the electrical problems
CD Changer Jammed after a few weeks - replaced in only 2 visits to the dealer.
Electric Windows opened on their own when car is locked - obvious security risk (took 4 attempts to fix over 6 weeks)
Electric mirror adjusters failed after windows fixed
Flat battery led to computer needing a dealer reload
Flat battery caused car to forget it had automatic headlights
Flat battery caused automatic window roll-up on locking to fail (2 visits to fix)
Airbag warning light randomly illuminates.
Performance lacklustre below 2000rpm.
Nice interior trim.
Tyres are hideously expensive for a family saloon - avoid ones with the factory fit 17" wheels.
Central locking remote range so short that often you can't open the doors when standing next to the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Its not a family saloon! And they all come with 17" Alloy Wheels!
307 110HP HDI, 2002 model on a 52 plate.
Six-pack CD changers? I'm on my third. Take a tip and don't leave the CD changer on when switching the ignition on - I finally worked out that it is starting the car with the CD player running that power spikes it into oblivion...
I've had one fold-out mirror under warranty, numerous small suspension components, discs, and pads (car has now done 142,000 miles) Other major failure was the clutch gave up and went home at 80,000 miles, well over warranty limit, but my dealer said there had been a bad batch and gave me a new clutch, pressure plate, and throwout bearing fitted free.
Drivers window using too much power load, so it thinks it is sticking or has been obstructed and comes halfway down again - irritating, but can live with it.
Recently car loses power completely on odd occasions, runs nicely, but won't pull - can be alarming when you are trying to overtake a truck. Dealer can find nothing wrong with it and no fault codes, so I expect it is dirt in the fuel system somewhere.
The car paid for itself at 60,000 miles on my mileage allowance, by about 90,000 it had paid for all it's running costs, and that latest 50,000 miles (up to 140,000) it's been making me the money for another one 8~)
At 62mph (indicated) on a long flat motorway with the cruise control on it will still return 62mpg - can't complain.
Main gripe is that you can't get this car, or its 308 equivalent, in turbo-diesel automatic configuration. For that we will have to wait for the 308 hybrid in about 2.5 years and counting.
I have a 53 plate Dturbo, and have found it to be an excellent car; treat it as you would a petrol engine, and it flies. Super mpg. Comfort, braking and ride quality are all beyond expectations. Mine has covered 50k with very few faults, and the 17" tyres are not hideously expensive; they last very well. Wish they still made it. I would buy another.
