This car has been a pleasure to own!!

PEUGEOT 407 2.0 HDi 136 Sport 5dr (Review date: 3rd July '14)

5

We brought this, our first Peugeot, two years ago. We have used it on a daily basis but also for taking trips away camping etc.

It has never once let us down, no matter what the season!

The panoramic roof means that the inside is lovely and bright and the estate has loads of space for whatever you need to put into it.

It is especially useful when taking the grandchildren for the weekend because ALL the stuff fits in there!!

Overall it is cheap enough to run (around 45 miles to the gallon) and ours has just passed an MOT with no problems - again!

Friday's Car...

PEUGEOT 407 2.0 HDi 136 SE 5dr (Review date: 18th June '14)

2.8

Owned this car for just over four years, used most days for work and covered about ###...38k when I bought it ( Arnold Clark) that's another story...and now has 83k on the clock..luckily I was lucky to take out a warranty, ( Not with A Clark)..otherwise I would have paid more for repairs than the car..Battery, Starter Motor, Clutch, Flywheel, Turbo, Two Sun Roof Motors, ABS, EBS, Anti Roll Bars, Suspension Arms, Uncle Tom Cobly and all...Constant warning alarms for Failed Bulbs, Speed Limiter, Tyre Inflation and numerous other thing... in about 50 years of driving it's definetely the worst car for reliability, fuel consumption, dealer service and their reliablity, and resale value drops like a lead ballon..would never ever buy another peugot again...always took great pleasure with the local peugot manager when he mentioned reliability and quality..when I asked him how come my car was never out of the garage and my 14 year old alpha was never in it.

2005 407 Estate 65,000 miles relatively troublefree

PEUGEOT 407 2.0 HDi 136 SE 5dr (Review date: 29th October '13)

3.5

Bought in 2006 with 17k on the clock. Since then have had front suspension repaired at manufacturers expense (£300), 2 sets of tyres, one tyre pressure monitor (cost £94 fitted and £64 to reset computer), front and rear brake pads, front brake discs, new battery.

Otherwise a great drive though perhaps an acquired taste. The long legged 136 bhp diesel married to a 6 speed box, gave 42 mpg at an average speed of 29 mph over last 6000 miles. On long runs a tankful of diesel could take you to 700 miles driven prudently.

The car is quirky, has interesting looks, lots of extras inc blue tooth and cruise control, and I am very fond of it.

407 has not disappointed so far

PEUGEOT 407 2.0 HDi 136 SE 5dr (Review date: 16th July '13)

3.3

I reported on this car about 2 years ago when I was having trouble with ABS sensors. With about 65000 miles on the car now it has proven surprisingly economical to run. Tax GBP175 and insurance 165. 43 mpg over last 6000 miles of mixed running. It is the 2 l diesel version. ABS sensors cleaned with wd 40 and loose wire to front unit secured by me and never been anymore trouble. Filled tyres with nitrogen for a GBP1 each at Kwikfit and no more trouble with sensors as deflation rate reduced and tyre shape maintained. Handling improved too so give it a go.

Part of the front suspension failed 18 months ago but Peugeot came up trumps and refunded the cost of replacement parts and labour ( GBP350 in all). This is a serious flaw in the car's design (IMHO)and if you find you have wandering steering get it checked out.

Good advice from taxi driver re cleaning particle filter. I was quoted GBP600 by agent a while back but so far it has given no trouble. Car does need a burst of speed on the motorway sometimes if used a lot in town to help filter work best.

Load area spoilt by silly shaped opening but the overall look of the car still has a contemporary feel.

In 6th effortless 70mph on motorway.

Main grouse too many rattles from back (mostly cured now). Quite rewarding to drive.

3.5

After owning a number of peugeots and finding them really reliable i bought this car with full service history and well looked after thinking it was ok ! Only to find since owning it from december its cost me £1600 in repair bills and now wont start on cold mornings and kicks out that much black smoke on start up its a joke . After owning this car for four months ive had enough and am partexchanging it in.

I had an L200 pick up from new and as i'm a builder i finally killed it after 7 years.

I needed something quick so bought Peugeot 407 estate as a stop gap for a month or 2.

That was 2 and a half years ago.

I use it for carrying everything including 3M long kitchen worktops during the week and give it a tidy and it's a great family car at the weekend.

Electrics can be suspect and warning lights come on when there's nothing wrong but i can live with that.

Very comfortable, looks good, reasonably quick and i get double the MPG.

These depreciate very quickly so do what i did and buy a three or four year old model.

I bought it with 75k and it's just turned 120k.

I've certainly had my moneys worth.

Fully loaded amazing workhorse

PEUGEOT 407 2.0 HDi 136 X-Line 5dr Tip Auto (Review date: 26th August '12)

4.5

Bought 2nd hand 3yrs ago & put about 55k on her. Hasn't missed a beat apart from replacing a tailgate strut & one side front sus. bush. 45mpg (good for an auto) especially as I carry quite a bit of weight. Love all the toys I mean it's got everything even a speed limiter/front passenger seats folds flat for awkward loads... too much to mention. Seats not the most comfortable but depends what you used to, certainly adequate.

Great value for money as bought her privately (2 prev. owners with only 35k) so even if I have to start to spend a bit on her I wouldn't be too unhappy. 20k service interval so only needs the garage once per year at MOT time.

A real shame

PEUGEOT 407 1.6 HDi 110 SE 5dr (Review date: 21st August '12)

2.5

I purchased the 05 110 HDI SE in Feb 2011 63,000 to drive on a family holiday to France. Great looking car for an estate and good on fuel. After 3000 miles, the DPF light came on and from there it was a nightmare. Rear elec window stopped working, radiator fan went, the amber/black display went faulty when warm (common fault), eventually the engine light came on and then smoking engine before being condemned, cost 3600, 18 months and spent 1900 on it to have it towed for scrap. Real shame because I still think it looked great. Diesels are far too complicated now and for what you gain in mpg you lose in upkeep. My other car is a Saab Conv and hasnt missed a beat.

407 SW HDI 136 sport 16v 2008

PEUGEOT 407 2.0 HDi 136 Sport 5dr (Review date: 14th July '12)

Bought second hand and second owner, Car has now got 84k on the clock and is a joy to drive and a great family car!

My boy loves the panoramic roof and so do I, Not my type of cars coming from RX8's etc but the best I thought in it's category for estates. With double wishbone front suspension and multi link rear she really does handle well!! With ESP (electronic stability program) and 5 star safety rating you have peace of mind your family is safe, Also has knee air bags and electronic child dead locks.

I got a Diesel tuning box for mine which boosts it to 167bhp and now gives 64 mpg on a run and 54 combined.

Never take these to a main dealer if you can avoid it!! DPF (particulate filters) can be washed out by a local garage for approx £70 instead of £600+ from Peugeot. Only need them for the Eloys fluid top up approx £100 not too bad only needs doing approx every 70k, cam belt around 100,000

Most parts can be sourced on ebay, But so far (touch wood) had no issues at all.

Well happy I bought
