Peugeot 1007 (2005–2008)

Last updated 13 September 2016

What's good

5 Star NCAP occupant crash safety rating.

What to watch out for

A car designed around a pair of electric sliding doors.

List prices too high for the car's size.

An almost total flop in the UK, being offered at £4,000 discounts by autumn 2006 and still not selling.

Even if you need the sliding doors, be very careful how much you pay.

End of plastic dipstick of 1.6 HDi engine can break and drop into sump requiring removal of sump to retrieve it.

'Whirring whine' from 1.4 HDi may be failing timing belt tensioner, which is a roller bearing device like the idler pulley, but with a reddish rubber/nylon damper. Gates cambelt kits include this part. Wise also to replace waterpump which is driven by the timing belt.

By December 2010, failure of the electric sliding doors was becoming increasingly common, especially in cold weather.

31-12-2012: 'Gong' sound means that car battery is failing to hold sufficient charge and needs to be replaced.

31-5-2013: On 1.4 HDi diesel injector seals eventually fail.

13-9-2016: Complaint that once opened offside door of Peugeot 1007 will not stay open either with key fob or dash switch. It opens then starts to close again. Have to press switch again to halt it.
