Toby M purchased this Peugeot 307 used for $10,000 (including all on-road costs) in 2014. Toby M would buy this car again because: “It has actually been quite a reliable car. For a vehicle that is 14 years old I have only had to do normal servicing and the occasional major repair. It’s very good on fuel (diesel) and I average about 6.0L/100km. “
Considering its age and the amount of kilometres I have done (250,000km) it has required the usual consumables plus a steering pump, diesel filter bag… and quite frankly that’s about it.
The electrics can be a little temperamental at times however.
I have loved it. Most people laughed at me when I said I bought a 307 Peugeot but this car has not missed a beat.
It’s comfortable, has a great boot space being a wagon, and just cruises along nicely without breaking any records.
Brand new it was $38k but I snapped it up for $10k back in 2014. Since then I’ve really enjoyed driving it.
My Peugeot mechanic even offered to buy it off me as it is such a good example of the 307. Six-stacker CD, climate control, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, heated side mirrors and armrests on the seats. So comfortable.
It’s certainly no rocket off the mark but for everyday driving it does what it should.
Highway driving is a breeze and can get down to 4.5L/100km on long trips. Around town averages about
6-7.0L/100km. It’s easy to park as it’s not very big.
Well considering it’s a 2008 model I would say it’s retro. CD six-stacker, no Bluetooth (although I have fitted an aftermarket adapter). Orange LCD screens and old-fashioned dials make up most of whats going on in there.
I certainly would not be taking it to Phillip Island for any track days that’s for sure! The ride comfort can be a little harsh over potholes and has a tendency to crash over them. On smooth open highways is when the little Pug really shines however.
I actually love my weird French little Pug. Ugly as sin, dated, and long in the tooth. Just like its owner.
