Peugot 207 SW thoughts please


Recommended Posts

I know it's a massive change from the jag x type I was looking at but does anyone have any experiences good or bad on the 1.6 diesel versions 2008 -10 model.Seen one in the flesh and they seem useful and the £30 road fund licence is a sweetener.

Watch out for issues with power steering, a very expensive job if it needs replacement , and a very common problem (Peugeot were doing them free for a while)
Warning signs are ABS warnings, and intermittent loss of PAS.

Peugeot are a bit naughty about the availability of spares for cars over ten years old. They just delist them, obviously thats their policy 

1.6 engines are bombproof, electrics are weak 

Agree with GingerCat you will never go far wrong with a Honda Jazz

Not sure a 1.3 petrol engine is good for high miles, a young lad was given his mum's 6 Yr old jazz and its been looked after but high millage and its starting to cost him money

My OH's got a 1.4 Jazz, it 12 years old now and it regularly does 700 to 800 miles in a week shuttling back and forward between London and Cornwall at the moment

The secret for a good engine life really is in the oil. You must only use fully synthetic oil and the engine will last for ever. Budget oil is false economy but you have to trust your garage is using decent oil because a lot don't. 

Even the best garages buy cheap oil

I don't use a garage, a friend services my current car. Seat altea xl 2 litre tdi. This is also fully synthetic oil. I have it serviced every 10-12 k so about every 6 months. Breaks checked, shockers etc. Its needed one shocker and the breaks doing, generally wear and tare and it's cam belt etc was done at 85k. 

 

I do like the idea of a smaller petrol car next time, if it handles 20k of motorway driving a year

If you get one, change the oil and filter regularly, this is a fantastic engine ( shared by Citroën, Peugeot, ford and Volvo) but the turbo works hard. It’s not uncommon to have turbo failures on Cars neglected of services.
