PEUGEOT 407 2.0 HDi 136 SE 5dr (Review date: 6th September '12)
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)
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)
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.

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
Nice Luxury - But French
PEUGEOT 407 2.0 SE 5dr Tip Auto (Review date: 19th January '12)
If you are buying a Peugeot 407 there are a few things to bear in mind. Number 1 is it low mileage. If it isn't, I hope you have a big wallet. These cars are lovely to drive and have the feel of luxury, but the higher the mileage the more problems you are going to get. Things to watch out for;
Silly computer warning messages, for instance they have a tendancy to tell you there is a problem and light up the engine management light, even if there is no problem. You will have to take it to your local dealer to be reset which will incur a fee.
Also the sat nav display screens in the middle of the dash often start to go faulty and become hard to read. There just seems too much computer gadgetary and it will go wrong at some point, especially on high mileage vehicles.
Air-con problems - might not just need a re-gas, there could be other issues which are more costly.
Tyre pressure warning sensors - have a tendancy to warn you of a flat tyre, even if the tyre pressure only changes slightly, such as in cold weather. You can get your local dealer to turn off the sensors.
Check your insurance costs - these cars don't deserve to be a big insurance group, but they are.
Road tax - ridiculously priced.
If you can put up with all the above, you will still enjoy having this model car, they are actually a very nice car, just a shame about all the above potential problems.
Best car I've owned
PEUGEOT 407 2.0 HDi 136 SE 5dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
I got this car with less than 5,000 miles on the clock and sold it with over 80,000 mileson it. Although it needed work when getting serviced and to get through one MOT, it never broke down leaving me stranded. The ride, and the seats are comfortable and the equipment was user friendly and to a high spec. Only sold it as I recieved a car allowance through work and they insist the car can't be more than 5 years old. Now driving a brand new passat, but missing my peugeot.
Peugeot 407SW 140 sport, great family car
PEUGEOT 407 2.0 HDi 140 Sport 5dr (Review date: 19th December '11)
This is my third Peugeot estate since downsizing from people carriers. The 140 sport has lots of features that you would expect on Audi/BMW. The front & back sensors, colour satnav and Bluetooth make driving easier, its comfortable, economical,reliable, carries loads without fuss, does the motorways or the dads taxi work . The next model is the 508 which for some silly reason is bigger, so what do I do
PEUGEOT 407 2.2 SE Luxury Pack 5dr (Review date: 11th September '11)
I had doubts about having a Peugeot but finally took one as it was by far the best spec and most spacious of the cars that were in the same price range and category. The 407 estate has swung my opinion totally. It is reliable and comfy. Despite being a petrol version I was impressed with the economy and also the power that was available 'when needed', I used it for the daily trip to work (9 miles each way) and a tank would last me nearly 300 miles. So I filled up once a month! For holidays it coped easily with all of the necessities - and the kitchen sink that the missus brought as
the amount of luggage space in incredible and far greater than it looks inside. The car is good looking and despite its large appearance from the outside is remarkably easy to drive and get a feel for. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a decent estate and I would place it against the Vectra / Mondeo estates anyday.
Peugeot 407 SW Sport XS
PEUGEOT 407 2.2 HDi 170 Sport XS 5dr (Review date: 25th July '11)
Big, fast, powerful, fully loaded, versatile, head turner...... just a few adjectives to start with. This rare Irmscher Edition Peugeot is one of very few Irscher cars not associated with vauxhall but this is a Peugeot factory fit that includes 18" alloys, tailgate spoiler and front bumper skirt with mesh grille to differentiate from the exterior from the 'standard' 2.2 Peugeot. Inside it's fully loaded with all the extras you'll find on more expensive prestige cars.
Getting in for the first time, you are able to fully adjust both front seats electronically to suit your driving position. You'll also notice the grate feeling of space and size from the shallow rake wind screen making the dash nice and deep. All controls are easily accessible via the multi-function radio/control unit plus steering wheel control stalks for a multitude of controls/functions.
Driving is a delight, as soon as you pull away, it feels big and grunty with a nice growl and oodles of torque. Driving a large engined diesel car is always rewarding even at the lower end, driving around streets. This car, however excels on the motorway. The sheer power from the 170 BHP engine propels the passengers up to great speed in no time at all and the driver must watch the speedometer closely as illegal speeds are very easily obtainable. Get into 6th gear as soon as possible and the amount of torque will mean you rarely have to drop down. Set cruise control on an empty, late night motorway and it is an absolute dream to drive.
All this with the versatility of a massive estate boot with rear seats folded, this car is a mean looking beast which is every bit a good ole work horse. The perfect combination for the exec load lugger who doesn't want to give up their boy/girl racer past.
