Summary:

Nice interior, shame about all the electrical problems

Faults:

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.

General Comments:

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

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.

Summary:

Beautiful, fast, sexy. Seems like a larger and more expensive car

Faults:

The left back window opens by itself.

The left front window does not open well.

General Comments:

My Peugeot 307 XT Premium is for me the best car for its money. With 18100 euro in Greece, I took the most beautiful hatchback, which is fast, and has unbelievable characteristics.

The driving feeling is of a larger and more expensive car. Especially the blue-de-cine colour makes my 307 look like a real beauty.

Without any doubt, 307 is still the best in the category of hatchbacks, far from all others, even the BMW 1.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

I would think twice if recommending it

Faults:

This is my second 307, the first one was having trouble in its exhaust in which it displays in the cockpit. the engine oil is nearly empty when I took it at around 10000miles in its clock.

The second one, the signal indicator would still fail even if you replace the bulb, banks slowly on the left when driving above 50mph.

General Comments:

A bit dodgy in mechanics and electrics.

Nice car though, stylish, comfortable and spacious..

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
