I bought mine second-hand seven months ago (03 Reg), and having had an excellent experience with the 2 litre HDI for the previous 5 years (Citroen) I had no concerns regarding the engine. I have never owned a Peugeot before, but knew enough to know that the depreciation would be scary. I find that as a motorway cruiser, it is really excellent, but also find that I use the Tiptronic around town. Only real problems have been with sensors-quite a few, but these were sorted promptly by the dealer, under warranty. So far seems to be an excellent second-hand buy.
I bought me 607 in 2005. Initially I had no problems with the car. I was enjoying driving the car until I was attending a meeting one day when the car just stopped on the motor way. I could not understand what had gone wrong. I called AA and they could not find what the problem was, so I ended up being towed into a local Peugeot dealer. After two days I received a call saying I need a new engine as something has seriously gone wrong with my engine. The warranty on the car had expired. I received a note from Peugeot a week later telling me they had just discovered a fault in the engine of my Peugeot, and that it will be repaired without any cost to us. I went to my local peugeot dealer and showed them the letter and was told the fault Peugeot had discovered has nothing to do with my car engine. You expect a car like that to have some sort of a warning device to alert you on issues like that. I will advise anyone to be careful when buying a car like a 607. Peugeot actually refused to say that car has a problem. I feel they should withdraw the 607 from the market because it has so many faults.
I'm driving a Peugeot 607 V6, and I have lots of problems with the electronics on this car, mirrors, battery issues, and I will not say how much gas it takes for 100 km... so stay away from this car..
We have been driving our Peugeot 607 for 2 years without any problems, until one month ago! It just stopped, it showed the ESP warning triangle and would not re-start until the engine had cooled. It started after 10 minutes and drove for about half a mile and stopped again. A Peugeot main dealer has had the car for a month without discovering the fault, it doesn't give me much confidence in them if they can't work out their own cars!
Enjoyed a 605 for 6 years, and figured a 607 would be the next step. How wrong was I!! It is a V6 - the only model available in Australia. I have owned it for 5 weeks, and it's been at the dealer for all 5 of those weeks, excluding a few days here and there between visits.
Amazing drive, and ride, comfortable interior and monstrous boot, but what a heap of crap.
We just sold our other Peugeot and bought a new FIAT 500 Lounge - a much better car than the small Peugeots available. I will never purchase another French car again. I can understand why people buy German - they don't have the French flair and individuality, but they're built right. Finished nice and engineered to last.
All my friends are selling off their Pugs for Volvos, Passats and even Minis.
I've owned my 607 since 2003, so it means 7 years in a row.
NEVER had any problems, just regular service, both batteries had been change, new tires, and a stolen cigarette lighter.
In the meanwhile, I bought a Mini, a 5 series BMW, a M Benz; all of them are gone and I still keep my 607.
One of the NICEST car I ever own, I will keep it as long as the car does not give problems.
By the way, I live in MEXICO so the roads are not so good like the ones in Europe or the US.
In 2006, I purchased a 2002 Peugeot 607 with 25,000 Kms, from the Peugeot chief in Central America. I've only had headaches with this car. To this day the car has been in a garage 8 times, for 10 (yes ten) months with repair costs exceeding the original 14K cost. The local Peugeot dealer wants another $3,000 to repair it again. I've had it with this car, and I am practically giving it away for scrap. Unreliable car, unethical dealer. I recommend staying as far away as possible from the headache on wheels.
Had a 607 for years, and have 135.000km on the clock with absolutely no problems. In the same time, had a Merc C280 and had endless problems, and a Hyundai Sonato with no problems. Rate the 607 as one of the best cars ever made for ride, comfort, style and cost... Viva France... Viva 607...
I have used 2 Peugeot 607s, and presently I use a 2.2 2002 model of 607, and it has been very okay. Compared with other models of its class, the 607 is a premium car that's so sweet. I RECOMMEND one to any interested buyer.
