Again I'm going to reiterate so people don't pick up on the WRONG assessment of the car! It's a 2 litre xsi PETROL wer'e talking about here! Great car, good handling and the acceleration in it is awesome. Very spacious inside and quite comfortable for semi bucket seats. For a 2 litre it's suprisingly fuel efficient (well as fuel efficient as a 2 litre can be!) Gareth… Read Full Review

I bought my - Peugeot 307 2L Petrol/Auto/ 5 door hatch - new in Dec'05 and have now done 148,000 km. I do a lot of long distance driving - I regularly drive from Brisbane to Sydney and back (Australia) a round trip of 2100 km and 12 hours driving time with stops, each way. I have owned many cars, of all types, all new, and this has to be the nicest and most driver friendly of them all. It has never missed a beep, a very reliable car. On the open road it has plenty of power, especially on… Read Full Review

As some one else has pointed out already this review is based on the 307 2L XSI thats the PETROL version! I purchased my 307 2 months ago, and I think it is a lovely looking car, handles very well! and if looked after and well maintained is a very reliable car...... However there is just one problem with my car and thats the fact that the boot opens when i open any other door, and it wont stay shut! every time I get out of the car the poxy thing opens and when I go to shut it, the mechanism… Read Full Review

Worst car I have ever owned. I am taking guilty pleasure in reading these reviews as I'm so glad and so lucky I got rid of my 307 when I had the chance. Purchased second hand from car dealer, nothing but problems with performance & the dreaded "Anti-Pollution Fault".
Turns out the world & his dog knew the 307's poor reputation apart from me!! It was still under warranty from the dealership, so I got a full refund after I fully 'rejected' the car & refused to get in it after the 3rd… Read Full Review

These reviews are harsh! Some people should actually check what page this is before writing a review for the WRONG CAR!
Peugeot 307 2.0 XSI is a 16V petrol model, not the 2.0 HDi diesel with all its problems (FAP filter, fly wheel etc). Someone even mentioned a 1.6L car. Please, read the page title!
Anyway, I love my car. It has been great, really stylish and very comfortable (half leathers etc). When it has had problems, I have TAKEN IT TO A DECENT GARAGE!! And they have always been put… Read Full Review

Overall car is good, can be thirsty if driving above 2500 revs, just do simple things like look after the oil, oil filter, plugs, air filter, etc if your lazy with these small things then like all cars things build up and you have a bigger problem, so when it says it needs a sevice in the dash or SERVICE BOOK then do it!!!… Read Full Review

I think the previous reviewer is a bit harsh. I have now had Pug Diesals for almost 10years and have not yet had a major engine problem with any. The only snagg I can report was a Water pump leak on a 405 GRDT Turbo and the mileage was 110000. Since then I have had 3x306s and a 307 (all turbo diesals). You can burn them heavy footed and have plenty of power and still get 40-45mpg.
I am now currently looking for a newer model (mine is now 6 this august) as I have had it since 17000miles at 14… Read Full Review

Good looking but bad workmanship. We have an 307 XSi 2004, we have had various recalls for problems, but just 4 years old and 37000 miles on clock. The engine has not gone something to do with missing tooth on cog for timing belt. Now Peugeot had AGREED to pay 100 % of £2500 plus bill. But now still not fixed week later and they have discovered something else broken in engine and we do not know as yet whether this will be paid by them. We used to love this car, now we can not wait to get… Read Full Review

Too many plastic panels falling off. Mechanically it is a disaster, and definitely not made to be parked in a supermarket car park. Magnets and solenoids have to be replaced. It was subject to recall but some fell through the cracks, watch out. Magnets are too small, requiring replacing with new larger magnets. When the gear box fails I have to find a place to pull over and turn off then restart the engine. This happens at the start of the journey 50kpm on the motorway and during the driving… Read Full Review

We bought the Peugeot 307 in March 2007 and every possible problem happened with this car, CD player, computer, window wipers, horn, temperature problems and even electric windows and the electric mirrors. Just today the engine has blown up after 5 months of ownership. The car looks the part, but must have terrible problems, it will cost £1000-£4000 to fit a new engine in the vehicle and practically is the worst car we have bought. This car has every possible problem imaginable!… Read Full Review

For 12 months this Peugeot 307 2.0 XSi had no real issues, after that period a whole manner of things have gone wrong:
Blaupunkt 5 CD changer stereo stopped working, Peugeot was going to charge a vast amount of money to fix, so had a techie mate look at it and now 3 of the 5 CD changers work, still have no idea what caused it.
Strong fuel smell is almost constant when slowing down.

I bought my Peugeot 307 9 months ago, basically because it looked so good.
The first problem started about a month later.
The 5 disc multi-changer gave up. Peugeot quoted me £300+ for a new one. The Blaupunkt dealer said they could repair it for £110ish, but the repair wouldn't be guaranteed as these units are so unreliable. In the end got one for £50 from the German Ebay site which seems to works fine.
Then the remote for the stereo gave up, back to Ebay again, only £30 this time...

I bought my Peugeot 307 2.0 XSi from a Peugeot dealer, a one owner car possibly used as a demo by a member of staff from another local garage. The Dealer was not really bothered with issues. changed to a local and new Peugeot dealer near home who was very helpful but still as per Peugeot garages, have only a reasonable understanding of faults. Glad I paid for the extended warranty as the above faults all repaired and very happy with the staff who bent over backwards sometimes to get the car… Read Full Review

Peugeot Dealer and manufacturer refuse to acknowledge problems. We are sure that this is to diminish your consumer rights. As soon as a major fault is recognised (probably the day you receive the car) we recommend you reject the car in writing.
Peugeot promised a reply to our complaints "within two working days". It took five months of constant reminders before they actually replied (totally inadequate reply) - and then only because they were prompted by BBC Watchdog programme.
