2003 Peugeot 607 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
A good looking, Executive car with lots of extras, let down by poor reliability
The car is now coming up to one year old and has been off the road for over two of its twelve months.
It has had electrical problems and Peugeot have been unable to supply spare parts without unacceptable delays.
I waited eight weeks for a new battery cable.
When the cable was eventually received and the car returned, the starter motor failed and I was towed back to the dealer.
Various warning lights appear on the dashboard at regular intervals, and there is then major inconvenience in having to take the car to a dealer.
In terms of value for money, the car offers a great deal for a reasonable price.
It is a very comfortable car with lots of extras.
However all this does not make up for the lack of reliability, and it will go down in history as the most unreliable car I have ever owned.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I am surprised you have had so many problems. I had teething problems with the catalytic converter waning light in the first six months and the automatic door opening was temperamental for a while, but the dealer was great and fixed the problems very quickly.
The "extras" that come with this car are excellent. I have the Ivoire model and have leather seats, 6 CD changer, electric sunroof and window shades, parking control, navigation system, DVD player, 10 speakers and all sort of computer alerts from low tyre pressure to empty cleaning fluid. This all cost me less than Euro 4000 on top of the standard price. Volkswagen want Euro 10,000 for the same or similar equipment on the Passat.
My previous two cars were an Audi A6 and a Volvo S80. A lot more expensive, but performance wise, just about the same. and less comfortable.
