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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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...

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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 more)

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 more)

Concerning my Peugeot 807 2.2 HDI GLX, I would like to have been told about fuel additive and told not to refuel in small amounts. Plenty of warnings re. anti pollution fault. I had sensors and valves changed on EGR unit but still showing and engine goes into limp mode then clears itself. Front tyres wear even, rear ones wear uneven. (read more)

This is my second Peugeot 807 2.2 HDI GLX. The first one was always at the garage getting little things fixed, and then getting the same things fixed again. Still it was a good car to drive and very practical for the kids, especially the sliding doors and removable seats. I took a risk that the unreliability was a one-off and traded it in for another. Big mistake! My second car has broken down 3 times in 3 months and it is only 8 months old. Do not buy this car. (read more)

Would never ever ever buy Peugeot again after having an 807 constantly failing electrics and electronics fobbed off by garage who never took responsibility or gave customer support. Expensive servicing, £300 to change the oil and kick the tyres! Complete and total rubbish all round worst car buying experience of my life...Back to Audi and Mitsubishi great service great quality!

Hired a Peugeot 807 for a month in South Africa. Car was a joy to drive. Electric doors were a problem in that they did not always work until...believe this, we placed a CD in the CD storage box and then had no problems with doors. Took CD's out and yup doors became faulty. Would not want to own one in New Zealand as the cost of window replacement must be very high with all the sensors (read more)

Although it seems a small point, be prepared for the cost of a new headlight bulb with the Peugeot 807. They are easy to remove, but impossible to put back in. Haynes haven't got a manuel yet so it's a trip to a garage. The cheapest out of 3 different garages was £88 (this is a job not covered by warranty)as the front of the car has to come off! Yep watched it myself as I didn't believe it either. (read more)

I purchase this Peugeot 807 2.2 HDI GLX people carrier at 2000 miles on the clock from a peugeot dealer. Having done a trip to Scotland and back the car was very easy to drive around the A roads with plenty of power and torque.
The interior is roomy. I think the dials are not very good in the centre position therby making it difficult to keep an eye on them and still concentrate on the road especially during night time driving.
Very good figure for consumption on A roads (average of... (read more)

The Peugeot 807 2.2 HDI GLX is a excellent car to drive and has lots of toys. I purchased the top of the range 807 with all the features some even Peugeot dealer never new about. The tech. support is very poor and buying from a small dealer is a bad idea. It took Peugeot 9 months to sort out the car alarm which is found to be a fault with the rear view passanger mirror. Try to find reviews on the top of the range models. If you de please tell me. (read more)

I've only had my Peugeot 807 2.2 HDI GLX for 2 months and I haven't used it to its full potential. It cost me £19,200 with a few added extras (Rear parking sensors and roof bars) and it was worth every penny.
I test drove all the other leading MPV's and this was by far the best. Although not the quickest MPV around (but still pretty quick) it is one of the safest and by far more comfortable than most. Superior to the Zafira and Galaxy by far.
The kids just love the electric sliding doors... (read more)
