Peugeot307HDi 90S Estate
PEUGEOT 307 1.6 HDi 90 S 5dr (Review date: 16th November '12)
I have owned my 307SW for nearly two years and in that time it has never refused, always started first time in all weathers,given a great drive, safely and fantastically economically. The comp. trip showing over 62-3mpg consistently ! Such a versatile carrier, its seats can be configured easily & quickly to accomodate luggage or larger items. eg. will carry two mountain bikes INSIDE! Who needs a bike rack ? Golf clubs in bag fastened to the trolley without dropping the seats ! I have used the car every day, even trips to France returning with the proverbial '' Wine Lake '' in the rear footwells without hicupp or complaint returning a fantastic 72mpg average over 1460 miles !!!!!!! I must say that this is my fourth Peugeot having owned two 406's even a L.H.Drive 307 SW for three years whilst living in France. All, without exception, gave super service but with histories being maintained fastidiously.
This present 307 will be missed, for its spirited resposiveness, comfort and higher driving position, not to mention the meagre running costs. On a posetive final note, its replacement is to be a 308 which I hope will serve equally as well as all the other Peugeots owned.
Great MPV! But uncomfortable seats!
PEUGEOT 307 1.6 HDi 110 SE 5dr (Review date: 29th October '12)
I'm a taxi, the last one was a Laguna with Lumbar support seats, I could sit in it for 14 + hrs and was very comfortable. This Peugeot is comfy for 6-8 hrs, but then i just want to get out! I read somewhere else of a couple who sold the car after just 2 weeks as they found it so uncomfortable!! My Mrs doesn't like it either. My passangers love it! but they don't have to sit in it all day! Everybody loves the glass roof and is a talking point.
Great to drive, it really does handle very well although i've found the engine hesitant at times, feels like the odd hick-up or jerk in 3rd gear.
Gear ratio is higher than my last, so on 30mph streets i'm in 3rd gear. 4th at 35mph+.
Quite a large car for a 1.6 engine, so the 180lbs/ft coupled with 16v is needed, especilly if your using all seven seats (Which i am not).
It does not have enough storage / cubby holes and only two 12v power points! (1 in front and 1 in back) which is not enough for an MPV! The under seat storage is shallow and the glove box is half taken up with air-con bits.
The seating position is higher, which was a main selling point for me, but not as high as other MPV of similar size such as Zafira, Mazda 5. Although the dash and interior is much better looking with Peugeot. It has Cruise Control on a 1.6 engine which is excellent! But only ONE and very DIM n/s reverse light, which is accompanied by rear parking sensors which i do not like AND will not work if the factory fitted stereo is removed. (I had my own with USB and Bluetooth which i cannot use now). It is impossible to reverse in the dark without audible parking sensors due to lack of light.
Fantastic boot space and easy to put my bike in the back with the seats down, and the vehicle is higher up so less strain on the my back.
Averaging 50.3mpg. Overall, i am happy with the car. Bad points are lack of reverse light, inability to change factory stereo, and uncomfortable seats for me anyway.

First the good bit - my 307SW has done more than 200,000 miles.
The Peugeot diesel engine lives up to it's reputation.
Unfortunately the car they built around it has been a source of frustration, irritation, annoyance and expense.
The worst attribute has to be the electrics. This car blows bulbs for a hobby. Over the winter months it needs a new headlight bulb every 3 weeks on average. You also need to keep a stock of the entire range of rear bulbs as they seems to operate on a "not all working at the same time" basis. As soon as you replace the one that has blown, another goes. The parking sensor gave up shortly after I bought it, was replaced and then went again. The battery drains within a week if the car isn't used and no-one can find out why.
The brakes have been temperamental and over the space of two years, the handbrake has had to be fixed 3 times - once after the car decided to roll down the drive and into the wall.
The dual mass flywheel debonded and took out the clutch, the front wheels go out of alignment within a month of being reset, shredding tyres, and the fuel cap sensor fell off several times until it was glued, taped and cable tied in place.
This is the third Peugeot I have owned and it will be the last.

PEUGEOT 307 1.6 HDi 110 SE 5dr (Review date: 21st January '12)
smooth car to drive, very economical, very low mileage, six years old ,only 23000 miles, will keep for long time hopefully? everything still works as new, still feels like new, all still tight and smooth, tell you more in a few years. At the time of writing the only problem I have had is the brake discs, they seem to be so soft that they had worn out by 20000 miles, I have had better quality discs and pads fitted, maybe will last longer. For the miles I do unless, I win the lottery this car will last a long time.!!!!!!!

I bought this car when it was three years old and had covered 50,000 miles. Apart from servicing the only other repairs/costs in the three years and 20,000 mile since I have owned it have been a rear wheel bearing, a trackrod end and two tyres.
The features I like the most are the panoramic glass roof, the removable rear seats, the fuel economy and the interior space.
The features I like the least are the automatic wipers (they never sweep the screen when I think they should) and the fog lamp switch (fiddly and impractical).
The road tax is only £120 a year and even though my annual mileage has gone down in the last year and my journeys are mostly local the mpg is still over 52 to the gallon. Although this economy has to be set against extra oil changes.
I would recommend this SE version as it has a few little extra refinements plus my particular model has leather seats and door mirrors which fold in as you lock the car (handy when you have to look out of the bedroom window because you can’t remember if you’ve locked the car). The only things I wish it had are blue tooth and Sat Nav.
I recommended this car to a work colleague and he is as pleased with his as I am with mine.

Practical workhorse, bigger than it looks
PEUGEOT 307 1.6 HDi 90 SE 5dr (Review date: 26th July '11)
I run an SW as a daily go to work car. 90 horses means it's never going to be a sports car and you can't drive it that way either but it does return 55mpg regularly.
Very comfy seats and driving position are a bonus, I prefer them much more to the flatter and harder Ford/Vauxhall seats. It's excellent on the motorway. the beige trim hasn't survived well though it has done 80000 miles now so i shouldn't complain.
It's a big car inside, tall, long and masses of space and my car has the glass roof so really airy and light. It's also well spec'ed with nice things like armrests, cruise, parking sensors and very good stereo but other things like auto lights and wipers are a bit annoying and the computer is so complex, i can't work out how to turn them off!
To drive it is a bit strange, the steering returns to centre very quickly and it feels slightly disconnected from the wheels, I'd suggest you have a go as it's very different to other cars.
Do i like it - I do indeed but it doesn't hold it's value all that well and I've had problems like broken Air con that are quite expensive to fix. It is very different to Fords and it really an alternative to things like Scenic and Picassos.

PEUGEOT 307 1.6 HDi 90 S 5dr (Review date: 7th June '11)
I bought this car over a year ago, as it is very spacious, and has seven seats option, the reliability on this car has been absolutley excellent having covered arround 12000 miles in a year and no problems at all.
The fuel economy on this car is fantastic giving us arround 55 to 60mpg it has a £70 tank which gives arround 750 to 850 miles depending on how you drive it.
The road tax is cheap for this model, and insurance group is only a 5, which means more savings :)
This car drives excellent having pleanty of power even up hills.
It has a large panoramic glass sunroof which gives beutiful views for the rear passengers, cruise controll for those long journeys, air con to keep us cool, and a very comfy and smooth ride. Will not part with mine.

These cars are excellent and very spacious, running costs are brill, achieving 55-60 mpg always, having cruise control for the long journeys is excellent and easy to use, and the drive is smooth, well worth the money and a pleasure to drive. Also gives option to have two extra seats, making these a seven seater, And has a large panoramic glass roof, fantastic.........keeps the kids quite.
