Economical for a large 7 seater, but disappointing reliability and struggles at motorway speeds on hills when fully loaded.

The build quality seems quite poor. The right hand side passenger leaks when rain blows onto it. The trim on the drivers door doesn't fit due to bad production of the top rail around window. It had run reasonably well until 43,000 miles then the injector on No. 1 cylinder shorted out. We got home with the help of the AA. I've just got the car back after a £2,000+ bill to fix the fault. I had to have all 4 injectors and associated bits renewed. This seems ridiculous for a car with only 43k miles on the clock.

Been a good motor with a few minor problems including the gear sensor failing in France but sorted under warranty. Now, at 45k, and 3 months after warranty lapsed the whole clutch assembly has started to break up. Flywheel and clutch. Peugeot say they had a major problem with this with the 307/308 some years ago but have had no problems since. Needless to say they won't offer any sort of courtesy assistance with the £1,500 bill. My only other real gripe with this model is the tyres. Why do they have a sports mode and hard to get, really expensive, sport low profiles on a 7 seater MPV?? It is ridiculous unless you want to arrive first on the morning school run every day.

It's just a nightmare with engine oil pressure problem and noisy engine all the time. Very unreliable car. NEVER GOING BUY PEUGEOT AGAIN.

Very good family car and quite reliable. I have had the car over four years now and there are no big issues yet. The boot is huge and you can fit three seats across the middle row which is a big plus. I think it's an excellent family car and I would definitely recommend it.

Overall very good but twice it has failed due to waxing of fuel. I consider this to be a design problem because I have had diesel cars since 1986 and have never before experienced this problem. My other car, also a diesel does not suffer the same problem even when filled from the same pump on the same day. Peugeot refuse to accept this.
