I have just had one of these (a 110 diesel) as a hire car for two weeks, and quite liked it. Can anyone tell me if the facelifted model has overcome to reliabilty/poor build problems of the earlier version? Thanks.

Don't know about the 307, but I did see my first 207 with the bonnet up and recovery truck in attendence this morning. First 207 I've seen as well. I know any car can break down, but it confirmed my theory of avoiding a new model until problems have been sorted.

Hope it is better than the 3dr 2.0 petrol I drove a couple of years ago.

The 307 replaced the Focus as the "standard issue" company car at my last workplace due to a very good deal being offered by Peugeot's fleet department.

I personally found it horrible. The 2.0 HDi engine was as nice as ever, but having previously covered 80,000 miles in a 306, the whole car felt bulky, wallowy and dull.

They were very problematic too. The fleet manager stopped ordering them after 6 months because none made it through the first year without at least one significant fault. They then went to Meganes which were lovely to drive, but again troublesome.

My Megane was only two months old when I left, but was already showing signs of electrical gremlins. The build quality and panel fit was also dreadful.

Last I heard, they were going back to Focuses.

I have a 2 year old 307 which has to date been trouble free, I accept that I have perhaps been lucky! That said, the new 307 is the old one with a very ugly face-lift! Underneath it is substantially the same so if you buy one you with either be lucky or not!

I've got a 2 year old one too.
No issues at all.

New facelifted 307 uses a full Bosch CAN - CAN electrical system, Its should be a lot better then the previous 307s CAN - BUS system.

I see this all the time. What does it mean? What would I see from it?

And is it purely Peugeots that use it? What would mine me? a CAN-BUS system? A BUS-BUS system?

A french car with German electrics - that might be an improvement

Bosch developed CAN electrical systems in the around 1986.

Mercedes where the first to bring CAN electrical systems to cars.

Peugeot / Citroen followed on a few years later bring CAN to us common people & now other manufactures are following suit.

Fiat, VAG, Vauxhall, Ford use it that I know of.

Your 307 is most likely a CAN - BUS system, The newer ones are full CAN - CAN.

CAN is also sometimes called by another name Multiplex
