Everthing i expected. Economical with good performance and a boot big enough to carry my mountain bike and kit. Comfortable on long rides. Great at cruising along the motorway or thrashing around a and b roads. Insurance costs running costs and tax and cheap for a car that looks more expensive than it is

Been having problems with this vehicle for some time now. Serviced vehicle and was told there was no reported problems and was made to feel like an idiot. Less than 800 Klms later I had it on the back of a tilt tray on its way to the service department. Overheating light kept coming on and was telling me to turn off engine. Also the hill start brake was sticking on, even tho I was never on a hill at any stage. So I've been told I need a thermostat sensor and there's none in Australia. So they want $1200.00 and 6 weeks while we wait for this part to come from Peugeot. Yep o/s I don't understand why there's not parts here as this is a COMMON problem with this car even with low Klms . Why isn't Peugeot doing something to fix this problem, like a recall. No backup support, so you really get what you pay for. DON'T buy this brand of vehicle. I don't even want to give it a one star but it won't let me take it away. Buyer beware.

Style, pace and grace - its everything a coupe should be. Build quality seems very good, no rattles and no problems to date.visibility is good but its all to easy to kerb the 19 inch alloys and i am not looking forward to replacing the tyres due to the price - but they do seem to be wearing very well

I love this car but since having it (2.5 years) it has been the garage twice for big fixes. It has now got another engine problem, will find out tomorrow, more££££. I have been umming and rrrring whether to get another.(that's a no) Just want something reliable(shame), cos it looks good, spacious, has a great bite and is economical on fuel.

Worst car I've ever owned. Constant problems with squealing brakes, rattling exhaust, 2 new clutches, faulty sat nav and stereo, oil leaks, water leaks, internal rattles. The car has been back to the dealer more than 30 times in the last 18 months, and they still haven't fixed it to my satisfaction. Peugeot are a dreadful company to deal with, and I have found they try and wriggle out of warranty claims wherever possible, or use the "they all do that" as an answer. I had intended to keep this car and trade it in for an RCZ R, but I will never touch another Peugeot due not only to my experience with this car, but the appalling customer service from Peugeot themselves.

Very happy with the look of the car, but thats where it stops. After 3 years it has probably been in the garage a month of that time. Lost count of the number of times sensors / coolant has been fixed (at least 6), sat nav screen replaced, chrome over doors replaced, oil leak from gear box, knocking noise on front suspension when new, replacement tyres took ages, etc. Peugeot Contract Hire team have been mainly unhelpful at the end of the contract with only one exceptional staff member. Glad I have replaced with an Audi R8.

Overall very impressed with the car, Very good build quality and can honestly say the interior has a very premium feel. The handling is excellent and comes with all the gadgets you would ever need. Fuel consumption is remarkable for a 2.0 litre. Use the car on a day to day basis and not had any issues. Smiles all around.

I really wanted to like this car, and bought one despite experiencing poor reliability from Peugeot company cars in the distant past. Bold design and excellent standard equipment don't make up for the fact that it has been very unreliable. New cylinder head, comms module, boot release, thermostat, temperature sensor, etcetera etc. In 9 months of ownership it has been garaged, towed or subject to roadside repair at least once per month. I've just taken a massive loss to trade it for a C-Class coupe. Shame because economy is good and it goes like stink, showing a clean pair of heels to most things on the road in mid range overtaking. Not so great off the mark where the tyres can scrabble for grip making an untidy getaway and shift from 1st to 2nd. Averaged 39mpg over last 9,000 miles.
