I have owned two Peugeot 807 2Lt HDI executives bought from new. .The first in 2004 the second in 2007 - which is my current car. Over the past ten years I have not had a single problem or cause for concern. I have always had the cars serviced at the main-dealership from whom they were bought. They have taken my wife and I all over Europe with a packed boot and a1550 kgs caravan trundling behind. The outfit has taken on the Alps and Pyrennes on twenty occasions and never once given me the… Read Full Review

Please, please, please do not buy, regardless however cheap they appear to be. Even if they have full main dealer service history which mine does, this counts for nothing. The electrical problems are minor compared to the problems the 2.2 HDI diesel engine will throw up. Even Peugeot mechanics admit that the engine is too complicated and very unreliable. My Peugeot garage openly admits that the 807 is the worse car they have made to date. Like almost every owner, you will experience… Read Full Review

My Peugeot 807 has had endless electrical problems - right from the start. Cam belt went at 62k but Peugeot did cover the cost ( Thanks to Wokingham Motors who are great) even though out of warranty. Tyre sensors break down after 70k and are £120 to replace.( Valves start to leak) Now the last straw, one of the rear seats got jammed in the runners and it had to broken out. £1100 for a new one! Intermittent computer problems - software issues that could not be overcome. Wipers kept blowing… Read Full Review

Beware. The diesel engine anti pollution system is very complicated. There is an additive tank and pump system that meters additive to the fuel tank based on sensing the fuel cap on/off and fuel volume! It needs an additive tank to be filled eventually but in my case prematurely due to the lousy engine management computer giving false info.
Cables that release seats have worn out on two rear seats.
Now the final straw the timing belt went at 64k. Engine knackered and it cost £500 to find that… Read Full Review

We liked the car's space and toys etc., but quickly realised why the previous owner had sold it at 18 months from new.
This has been the most unreliable car I have ever experienced. Something goes wrong in this car every month. We even left a set of keys with the dealer it spends sp much time there. It feels like the entire car has been replaced one bit at a time, but even so it still keeps breaking. Spending around £3k per annum on repairs, now it's off warranty. Have finally traded in… Read Full Review

Loved this car at first, so easy having sliding doors. However computer started going wrong and Peugeot could not fix - they did not have the right software!! Now the cam belt has failed at 77K Change recommended at 96k. Am reading so many problems with premature cam belt failure on the 2004-6 model as engine housing open to elements. Local dealer in Banbury does not want to know. We are pursuing under the SOGA and will see what happens. Beware!… Read Full Review

We had a Fiat Ulyses for 5 years and it was brill. We came to change and couldn't find a new shape fiat so opted for the 807 thinking it couldn't be much different. Bought the Executive for the toys - electric doors, seats etc. We've had it 12 months now and it's a heap of junk - just had to replace a bulb - £93.00!! Doors failed to open, alarm goes off when you're driving, all windows dropped on the motorway at 70!! Warning lights come on and then off, doors lock and refuse to open, it beeps… Read Full Review

We have bought a Peugeot 807 in 2004 in Sweden and after a few months it was already in for problems: antipollution faults and oil pressure insufficient. We have been in and out and spent a lot of money and time. Two weeks ago the motor has failed and we have to spend 6000 euro to fix it: the value of the car… Read Full Review

We bought a 406 which was pretty good for about 3 years so then bought a Peugeot 807... big mistake. The 807 was trouble from the day we brought it home and the 406 started playing up soon after. Both refuse to rev above 3000rpm with huge loss of power. Today I have driven up a hill in Richmond at 10mph and travelled 10 miles along the motorway at 45mph and that is top speed!
The worst car I have ever had the misfortune to own. I am stuck with them both as they are unsellable and I can't afford… Read Full Review

The Peugeot 807 is a nice car to drive but it is badly let down by shakey electronics and an extremely poor engine fault warning system. Although reliable enough, one always has the feeling it is going to break down or bleep a fault at you. The car could have been stellar, if only more time had been spent sorting out the electrics. The faults are relatively small and there is nothing to complain about the drive, but the small problems have the ability to annoy and frustrate beyond measure… Read Full Review

Not too bad on fuel consumption compared to other MPVs. We had a high spec executive model and still had loads of problems with it. alarms having a mind of their own. tyre pressure markers falling off so therefore leaving you with permanent flashing warnings. Now anti-pollution fault which is really expensive to fix. We are fixing it up and selling it on… Read Full Review

Dealer fobbed me off with pathetic excuses. Eventually after 2.5 years and ruined life/holidays dealer agreed to "a deal" on another Peugeot 807 on basis that this may have been a bad car! One of my biggest mistakes ever! Now 2 years into ownership it was towed to garage with multiple electrical faults which RAC suggested due to dampness in electronics. After only 2 years ? Awaiting further excuses but ready for them this time. May take it to "The Judge" in the mail if no satisfaction. I can't… Read Full Review

Today was to be the third attempt at us trying to get the faulty gearbox problem in our Peugeot 807 fixed. Intermittently a warning comes up and it says faulty gearbox, warning light stays on.
Twice previously has been in dealers and seems resolved till next time. Today my husband was told that they cant fix it for 7 weeks as they are waiting on a software download programme being made up by Peugeot to rectify the problem. Have tried Peugeot Customer Care was told we couldn't speak to a Line… Read Full Review

It is the most unreliable car that I have ever owned. I lost £1000 when I traded it in, but it was money well lost. If you buy this car make sure you get a warranty with it, because you will need it!!!
The anti-pollution fault on the Peugeot 807 2.2 HDI GLX kept coming on no matter what was repaired, and it took a Peugeot dealer 3 weeks to respond to my call, after a nudge in the right direction. There were problems with electrics, as lights would come on for no reason, and the indicators… Read Full Review

As with previous reviews. My 807 was recalled by manufacturer 3 times.
Electric wing mirrors stick closed regularly, hand brake cable brakes and the reversing lights and warning bleeper stopped working. Back end pulley on engine has broken and surprisingly the garage fitted a new one straight away as they had a spare on the shelf... so that hasn't happened before?!… Read Full Review
