Best mileage I've ever seen in a 2005 car!!!
So far only issue I've had with this car was the AC stopped working (might just need a refill). Have done 40k kms on and it drives beautifully considering the extra weight of being a wagon. Interiors and attention to detail are quite good for a car of its age. Fuel average is around 5.0 l/100km although lately I even manage to keep it down to 4.7 driving through the hills!!! Was fairly cheap to service too as long as you find a mechanic who's not too scared to touch it.
Driving experience very good. Good seats, plenty of legroom. Side pockets in front doors and back of front seats. Pull out drawer under front seat. Glovebox very small. Carpets on driver's side keeps pulling away from trim.
Have clocked up 130,000 in 14 years. 2 batteries, one starter motor;two sets of tyres. 60 litre fuel tank. Running costs approx $4,200.pa. Very happy. Previous Peugeot 405 had for 10 years.
A brilliant car with excellent potential
I bought this car about a year ago with 380,000kms on it.
Being a diesel i didn’t mind.
Driving was good. Although warn front shock runners need replacing
The ac is icy, the windows all work, had an issue with burnt out brake light holder. Fixed now.
Super economical with about 60 dollars to fill and about 900kms of driving mixed city and country with ac always on.
The 5 speed manual shifts well with no issues.
The engine blows no smoke at any stage.
Have just had is stage one tune installed and wow. Brings the power and drivabilit...

nice little zipper
I had my 2005 for the second year and boy it is a coupe with 2 personalities a hard top convertible and a two door coupe, I should say it is a cruiser and not a racer but it doesn't lack in zip, as long as you feed it petrol 98, be careful there it doesn't like 91 and you might have issues. did I have any problems? yes a coil replacement and a thermostat set me back appx 500 bucks that's all I take it to work every day no problems so far, and when the sun comes out waou it becomes a convertible before the red lights turn green that's when the fun begins.
I bought it brand new in 2002. Had it for 7 years. I promised myself I would never buy a European car again in my life. Beautiful and sophisticated but totally unreliable and very expensive to maintain.
- 307 T5 (2001-2005)
- Selected Review
Pug 307 1.6 5 speed manual hatch.
2005 Peugeot 307 XS 1.6 16V PULP 5 speed manual hatch. Bought used a few months ago with 108,000km.
I've had a bit of a soft spot for Pug's since owning a 1994 Peugeot 306 for 8 years. Despite this car being underpowered with a basic 1.8 litre 8 valve engine, it served us well as our 2nd car with moderate running costs (PULP and servicing). We then had a 2009 Mazda 3 for 4 years and it was chalk and cheese between the quirky little Pug and the larger, very efficient and more powerful Japanese made 3. Despite this, I remembered the 306 fo...ndly. With the arrival of child 3, we upsized and now have a 2013 Kia Sorento turbo diesel 7 seater. The 307 was purchased to replace our broken down and beyond repair 19 year old Mazda 626. The 307 is much larger than the 306 and on par with the 2009 Mazda 3 for interior space although the 3 had a larger luggage capacity. The 1.6 litre 16 valve engine is willing but probably a tad underpowered. I'd say the 2.0 litre version of the 307 would offer much more grunt but that said, the 1.6 is more than adequate both around town and on the highway. I just did a return trip from Launceston to Hobart which was easy and relaxing. New tyres were fitted last week (Dunlop SP Sport LM704) which made a huge difference to ride, handling and importantly, noise and harshness. Road noise has been reduced by more than half, I'd say even two thirds but that's a different review. The previous tyres were mismatched brands and tread pattern front and rear and extremely noisy. Initially I thought the rear bearings were damaged. The manual gearbox on mine is a little imprecise and like the 306, the clutch has quite a high bite/take up point which takes some getting used to. For a small/medium car you do sit quite high in the car which aids visibility and ease of entry and egress. The front seats offer good support and adjustability. There is ample room for 4 medium sized adults and my 3 children fit easily in the rear even with a single child seat in place.
Amazing Car! Will be purchasing a Pug again
Absolutely amazing car brought second hand with 20,000kms in 2004 and have had since then it now has 258,000 kms on it apart from scheduled servicing I have replace an idol bearing and that's it! has been a rock of a car, has never ever let me down and started first time everytime! only thing I wish it had was Bluetooth but het its a 2002 model and ill be keeping it until it no longer runs! perfect car for a first car or a run about!
Worst car i've ever driven that is 'roadworthy'
No power, less than an early 2000 swift or lancer, no clutch feel, slippery clutch on hill starts even brand new.. sloppy shifter, terrible radio display (or lack thereof)
Handling of a $10k car
Sagging roof liner
Poor visibility, useless side mirrors, even with the drivers side having the concave curve (most euros are good with it)
Power steering overheats often
Parts are more expensive than a bmw or merc ...Arm rests too high The only thing i actually like is the 'limiter' cruise control function, i do wish my car had that This isn't my daily driver, and i'm super glad of that. Ew. Terrible terrible car DO NOT BUY The cruise control.. Everything. Literally everything
Questions & Answers
My peugeot is not starting, well it does when its really hot weather. I have been told that the rely to the glow plugs are not powering them, are these expensive to replace??"
Glow plugs are not really expensive. Can I suggest the aussiefrogs website. Far more expertise there.
Please help me, I just noticed that when I put my car on reverse the car will b like is jerking continuously until I remove it from reverse...
I’m sorry, but this is entirely out of my depth. You will need to get onto a specific Peugeot site. Can I recommend the site aussiefrogs even if you’re not in Australia
My Peugeot 307 s/w first gear is a little bit sloppy. Doesn't anyone have a similar issue and maybe found a solution?
