Peugeot 407 owner reviews

The Peugeot 407 has striking looks, but isn’t great to drive or hugely practical. At least the diesel engines are strong performers."

Overall the car is fine. The biggest problems i have had have been: 1) the ignition/door keys have a rubber covering and do not last very long before needing to be replaced at a cost of around £160 2) the wheels are fitted with tyre pressure sensors which are made of aluminium and break off easily costing around £100 each to replace.

A good reliable motor, does everything i need. Computerised electronics getting too complicated, can be difficult to adjust settings, sometimes has a mind of its own and does what it wants. Sometimes defaults to factory settings and you have to reset user preferences.

It is a very economical car on long trips in 6th gear. It is also practical (sw version) and comfotable. I like the large fixed glass roof (although i would prefer a sunroof & it does get hot in summer. The car has not had any faults but has had one manufacturer's recall (to reprogramme the engine management system). I have had several peugeots and have always been happy with them as they tend to have good diesel engines & are comfortable & reasonably priced (though depreciation is heavy).
