Pug 407 Gt Hdi 136 Auto Saloon — Not the best buy, the seats are unsupportive - crippled me on even short journeys. Decent headlights (Xenons), they have shutters that alter the beam pattern for driving on the continent. Gearbox was 6-speed with sport/winter/manual modes. gave around 38 - 46 mpg UK. Boot was alright for luggage but not good for transporting bicycles or anything with a large dimension.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles well on corners, helped by the large wheels 215/55-17. Headlights were great.

Cons: Uncomfortable leather seats. Gearbox needs to be DSG. Small boot aperture. Stupid sat nav - cannot find location by postcode.

Good Deal. — That was when Peugeot started asking for profesional advice. They used a flawless PORSCHE gear box. the looks were stunning. the ride comfort was good. it needed a powerfull engine though as the car was heavy. So aim for the 3.0 L engine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Looks

Cons: Weak Engine.

A Great Car That Is A Pleasure To Drive And Be Driven In. —

I had the Peugeot 407 as a Taxi for 2 years before retiring her at 100,000 miles. She's now used and loved by the Mrs and kids. This is a great car, especially for longer journeys. My first impression is that the 407 doesn't make you tired after a long journey. Passengers always comment on how comfortable it is. Great seats, smooth ride and a refined engine. It handles beautifully in curves. You have to try it in curves, you'll love it!! Doesn't feel quick, but the speedo shows you're usually doing 10-15mph more than you think your doing. This car is not quite as good for town driving. It's long and the front overhang is relatively low, which usually catches speed humps with a full load. A heavy car and not so good fuel consumption around town, 34-39mpg. However, once out of town get into 6th and engage cruise control and you'll easily do 56-62mpg. * Performance - The 136bhp hdi engine is more thirsty than the old 110bhp 406. 248ftlb of torque and an over-boost giving 15bhp more for overtaking * Build Quality - Inferior build quality compared to the 406 * Appearance - The car looks stunning and unique, and has plenty of kit for the money. * Cost of Ownership - Reasonable to service with long service intervals of 22k, but I've done mine every 10-12k. Expect a £500+ bill at around 90k+ on the 2.0 models (Particle filter) and Flywheel replacements around 40k. * Fun Factor - NCAP 5 safety rating, Traction Control and the Duel Wishbone suspension make this car an enjoyable experience.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very comfortable car to drive - Handles well, especially for such a wide car - Insurance is relatively cheap .

Cons: Let down slightly by the dealer network - Duel Mass Flywheel lasts around 30-40k costing £1,200 including clutch.
