On accelerating in second gear the car pulls slightly to the right , on changing up into third the pulling stops . If I accelerate slowly the problem doesn't occur. Help needed is this common in this car ? How serious is this problem?

Just give the tyre a good bashing preferably with a heavy hammer to loosen the rust around the hub, this is very common on most cars. Cavalryman from Essex

I have a 2008 Peugeot 207 and suddenly from cold, when starting the engine, after about 8 seconds I get an audible warning and it shows on the screen "engine temperature too high". The temperature gauge is at maximum and the red light in the temperature gauge is on. The lower screen shows the word STOP. This is NOT possible as the engine is stone cold. There are no leaks and the car runs fine I have changed or renewed the thermostat so it cant be that. will never buy another Peugeot again can not work on engine its all rammed so close.

Hi I had the samep problem it's your coolants sensor that needs changing. Mine did the same so I was told by the garage if it happens soon after you start the car it's the sensor so when it happens the temperature will say it's to hot the stop sign comes on. When it happens pull in somewhere safe turn engine off wait couple minutes turn it back on. It should temporarily stop this until you change the sensor. erica from City of Derby

Hi there, I have been to a a few garages and peugeot themselves and all seem to not know what is wrong with my display multifunction screen. It keeps flashing.

My menu button doesn't seem to work any more. Anybody know why? Thank you

I bought my car yesterday and straight away have had a problems. Having left the car on the drive for a few minutes it would not open with the key remote. Nor with the spare. Having opened the car manually and put the key in the ignition the clock and date had gone back to zero as though it had lost connection to the battery. However the radio was fine and didn't need resetting so that is clearly not what had happened. It started ok and I went to meet friends but then when leaving to come back home again the same thing happened only this time the windscreen wipers also started on their own. Just one wipe but without me touching them. There is a fault somewhere and it could, I hope, be a simple fix but does anyone have any idea what is happening?

Hi - I can hear a lengthy 'beep' noise coming from somewhere under the bonnet of my '07 207 1.6 HDi every time I switch the ignition off after completing a journey. It's so quiet with the bonnet down that it's almost inaudible, I only noticed it when I was checking fluid levels and started the engine with the bonnet up the other day and switched it off again. I've read in a few different places that this is normal, but I can't seem to find an explanation as to what it is that's beeping. Can anyone clarify what it is?

Peugeot 207

Hi, I bought my Peugeot (2011 plate) in September of last year (2104). It has just been in the garage for the THIRD time now about a stereo problem, which still isn't fixed but when they looked at the car for a check up they informed me that the front disc pads are corroded already and will shortly need looking at. I find this very odd that corrosion has set in already when the car is used every day by me. My understanding from a mechanic known to me is that corrosion sets in when a car is left standing and then proceeds to pit slowly. My Peugeot has told me that this will not be covered by the warranty when the work needs doing and I am really disappointed and feel that the pads were not substantial when the vehicle left the garage. Also the brakes are constantly squealing which I have informed them and they just said they needed cleaning, which they did and the brakes are still squealing. I have had the vehicle five months, had nothing but problems, paid £6,000 for the car and am pretty disappointed, what would your suggestions be please?
