Peugeot 107 (2005 – 2014) At A Glance

Cheap to run. Economical and perky 1.0-litre engine. Fun to drive. Decent cabin room. Ideal first car. 2012 model emits 99g/km CO2.

Not good for long motorway journeys. Some problems with leaks. Clutch and waterpump failures common on 2005 - 2009 models. Stronger clutch fitted from 2009.

Insurance Group 3
On average it achieves 83% of the official MPG figure

As small city cars go, the 107 has almost the perfect dimensions. It's designed to be easy to drive and manoeuvre into tight spots and thanks to the wheel in each corner design the it's ideal. That clever design means it's also neatly proportioned. The flat rear and raked windscreen give it a sporty feel and it certainly has a more distinctive and youthful appeal than many small cars. It's no surprise this is such a popular car for younger drivers who have just passed their test.

The 107 is in fact the sister car to the Toyota Aygo and Citroen C1 which isn't exactly hard to spot. They're all built at the same factory and the good news is that it was largely designed by Toyota so it's well built, durable and reliable - traits that aren't always a Peugeot strength. On the road it feels more substantial than you'd imagine given its fairly dimunitive size and is actually very good to drive with a precise gear shift and a peppy 1.0-litre engine with 68bhp.

It's no performance car but it is very cheap to run. That little three-cylinder engine is ideal in town as it pulls well from low revs, yet it will still average 62.7mpg and CO2 emissions of 106g/km means it's in the cheapest car tax band that isn't zero. It's even available with a semi-automatic gearbox called 2-Tronic which is pretty rare on a car this small while insurance is group 3 (in the new 1 to 50 group ratings) which was group 1 in the old system.

With low prices, both new and used, the 107 is a good value choice too, but that doesn't mean you get a cheap interior. It's well built and stylish inside with a good quality finish and a neat layout. Passenger space is decent too, considering the little Peugeot is less than 3.5 metres long and even taller drivers won't feel cramped. As city cars go, the 107 is pretty much the perfect package.

Why is there a water leak in our Peugeot 107?
My elderly friend has a 2012 Peugeot 107 Active. It suffers from water ingress in the front passenger footwell. We have had it investigated by a local garage who have not cured it. Do you know what likely cause of leak please ?
You can fix this yourself with a teapot spout brush. The most common reason is blocked drains to the bulkhead ventilation well leaving rainwater nowhere to go except via the pollen filter into the car. The vent well is the well underneath the grille at the base of the windscreen. The drains are either side.

How much would cigarette burns on upholstery knock down the sale price?
I'm selling a 2011 Peugeot 107 Urban. The average price was £2500 - £3500. How much would you expect a dealer to request a price decrease for two cigarette burns on the front seats? I have accepted £1900.
They can be almost 'invisibly' repaired by specialists, but not for nothing: So a dealer will knock you back for the cost of the repairs plus the time he has to stock the car while the repairs are done. So probably better for you to get them done yourself.

Dealer didn't tell us our new car had been in an accident - what do we do?
My parents bought my brother a 2005 Peugoet 107 in September 2016. The car developed a fault (horn sounding with no one pressing it) and was sent to the local mechanic to get it sorted. When he was fixing the horn he noticed that the front crumple zones and slam plate had been bent in an accident and had corrosion on them. We have contacted the dealership regarding the issue but they have said if the car passes an independent MOT no refund will be issued. Our mechanic says the damage won't be seen as the car will not be stripped for an MOT and it will pass. Where do we stand?
They are flanneling. Under the 2008 CPRs they were actually obliged to disclose to you the prior crash damage before you bought the car. Threaten to take them to Small Claims and if they don't come to a satisfactory compromise, carry out your threat. If you get a judgement apply for a High Court Sheriffs Order to enforce it. See:
