Changed to 407SW from Ford Mondeo and it isn't a patch on the mondeo. Car is sluggish and hesitates when on cruise. Gearbox is very clunky and whines. Handling is poor. Don't find seats very comfortable. Spaces in boot is poor and back seats do not fold down properly. Quite like look of car, but would never buy again. (read more)

I have now had two Peugeot 407's, one a saloon and one an SW both diesels and both have been good cars. The first (the saloon) was excellent until it reached 90,000 miles. after the 90000 mark I kept getting different m anagement control signals and the car spent a lot of time at the dealers. As one of the previous writers said the faults did not register on the computer. My second one 407Sw I have had for nnear three years but this one has only don 49000 and so far had not had any problems.... (read more)

I have a 2006 Peugeot 406 2.0 HDi sport 6 speed manual since it was 12 months old it developed a whining noise in 4th and 5th gears when I took it the Peugeot dealers they said all 407s do this bearing in mind it had never done it before I have also had numerous visits due to a knocking noise coming from the front end when turning left and right they fitted a new lower o/s ball joint and this never rectified the problem I spoke to the dealers they said let the problem progress I took it back...

My old 2004 Reunault Laguna (95000 miles 50mpg) was a much nicer car than the 407 (40,000miles old) had for 3 good years. Both Laguna and 407 2l Diesels same performance. ESP switch's itself off after a mile. Drivers seat bad lumber support. Go for C5 for looking after your back motoring. No locking fuel cap struggled with remote.
Release on 406 failing with cable stretch they gave up with simple proplem. Easy to deck front spoiler. Ugly front air inlet. (read more)

Would have expected a main dealer to be more helpful and own up to the fact that they caused the fault. No clear explanation. Took car to dealership for major service and inspection. Sat nav and colour screen working, got it back, not working! Dealer says not their fault. Refuse to put it right, have had it diagnostics put say its a fault that was already there. No so! was using the sat nav to get to thier premises. Also voice comand now not working and thats a toy I use a lot. (read more)

An excellent motor apart from the problem detailed above and creating extremely dangerous and I consider highly dangerous situations!
Engine lost revs twice at about 80 mph on German Autobahn. Fortunately I was able to get to hard shoulder with engine just ticking over - still had steering and brakes. Stopped car, switched off and then back on and everything as it should be. Then try getting back in to a very fast moving stream of traffic!
Car at dealers on a number of occasions but they... (read more)

This Peugeot 407 SW is the worst car I have ever owned. I did not realise that "The drive of my life" meant fighting to get from the third lane of the motorway to the hard shoulder with an engine that has lost all power.
Because the fault does not store on the "on board" computer, the dealer claims there is nothing they can do to rectify it. A new EGR valve has been fitted without success. The response from the dealer and Peugeot customer care has bordered on the non existent. Nothing would... (read more)
