Peugeot 207 CC 2010

4 star review

Lovely car and very happy with everything until... I Bough the car second hand in 2013 and I have only done 4000 miles after owning it for 10 months. Oil warning light appeared and car placed into dealership for oil and filter change. After completing oil and filter change and on collection from the Peugeot dealership informed me that there was a bad oil leak from the side of engine from timing tensioner. Car left with them and thankfully extra warranty taken when bought the vehicle covered the replacement of tensioner and seal (£218), not for my oil and filter change though (£60). Please can anyone advise if the timing belt or chain should have also been changed at this juncture? Plus surely the oil leak should have been identified prior to old oil drained and new oil put in?

Really love my 207CC, but I had problems with rattling roof and now loss of turbo power. I can’t find the problem and it’s intermittent; sometimes I have turbo power and sometimes not. No lights on the dash. I’m taking it back to Peugeot tomorrow! Pretty disappointed as I had the 206CC for 8 years and had no major issues and no rattling roof either! I’m starting to panic this is a major problem and I have no warranty left! Not sure where to go from here if the fault can’t be found and fixed. I’ve only had my car one year so I’m pretty gutted :-(

I have recently noticed a vibrating noise coming from the boot. It seems to be not so loud when there is weight in the boot but when there isn’t it is loud every time I go over a bump. Took it to the main dealer and they said it was a common fault with the car. Has anyone else experienced this banging vibrating sound from the boot. Horrible to drive because it is constant. Any ideas folks??? Please help getting desperate now...

1 star review

Got a new 207cc Sept 2008 on 58 reg plate, car went into dealership after 5000 miles due to warning light activating after minor collision with kerb in icy/snowy conditions, and was told that along with other steering parts it needed new front discs and pads fitting at a cost of £260 (thats for front discs and pads only) this was due to excessive wear, dont bother mentioning the warranty, they said wear and tear wasn’t covered, but surely parts being made from monkey metal are??????. Anyway to cut to the chase the discs and pads were replaced elsewhere (original Peugeot parts fitted) and since then the car as covered a further 2700 miles during the past 7 months, the vehicle has just been in for service (2 year/20,000 mile service) with 7700 miles on the clock and guess what we got a phone call from the dealership informing us that the front discs are heavily worn and it needs new front discs and pads fitting - cost £260 in addition to service cost. They were only fitted brand new 7 months ago and have only covered 2700 miles, what are Peugeot making their discs out of?????? Are we going to have to replace the front discs and pads every year????? VERY NOT IMPRESSED. Peugeot’s argument is that it’s because there is not enough mileage being done and therefore you get excessive corrosion; how come our other car a Vauxhall which covers less miles per year than the Peugeot doesn’t suffer the same problem? It’s done 5500 miles in 2 years and discs are fine. The Peugeot does round trips of 16 miles 2 to 3 times a week plus general running about, it’s garage kept so doesn’t stand out in bad weather. Should Peugeot warn people and say if you don’t cover at least 10000 miles per year you will have to have new discs and pads annually at a cost of £260 because our warranty covers next to nothing.

Responses to this review

It’s because the 207 does not have gaurds over the disc, so they go rusty. If you use them every day it’ll be okay but only a weekly run for whatever distance will not remove the corrosion. My car does fairly long trips and does 10k a year but suffers from rusty discs. My wife’s car is used every day for short trips and only does 6k a year and has perfect discs. All you can do is make sure you press hard on the brakes at least once on a journey! - Trevor Wainwright from Essex

Your problem is not with lack of use, rust or alien invasion, it is the quality of material they use and the fact that some people have ’heavy brake foot syndrome’!. As disc brakes are quite cheap to manufacture and replace, manufacturers are maximizing their profit as any use comes under wear and tear and is not warrantied. The biggest problem is the venting and how they construct the molding as it is simply a casting, milled and balanced out of standard grade mild steel. As our MOT testers see quite a lot of rough looking discs on these models, they won’t fail an MOT unless they have severe runout, very thin or deeply ridged (lip around the outside edge). It’s like everything, VOSA makes it easier for cars to pass every year and puts us NT’s in a difficult position in some cases. Get some good quality discs online, pay £100 -150 per pair and get decent pads, get a mate or garage to fit them, it’s not a warranty job so the dealer doesn’t care. Don’t buy the discs from Peugeot they are generally inferior quality! - from Hampshire

Andy, I think you will find that most disc brakes are manufactured from cast iron, but may in some cases (ie. expensive sports cars) be made from carbon-carbon or ceramic-matrix composites, but never mild steel! - Dave Clayton from Oxfordshire

Hi, I do 4,000 miles a year and have a 57 plate gt and have had no problems so far with my discs or pads. It has done 26,000 miles and I have had to have a new gearbox fitted and have had problems with the roof and electrics. I keep my car in a garage - is yours kept outside? Peugeot originally said they would not replace the gearbox so I contacted BBC Watchdog and What Car and forwarded my messages to Peugeot, they rang me back the next day and agreed to replace the gearbox so long as I paid the labour cost £950, which I argued and got 2 tyres and the courtesy car thrown in but I am still not happy. I cannot see why your brakes need replacing at the mileage you quote without something being grossly out of alignment. If I was you I would really have a go at them and quote the sale of goods act. Go on What Car webpage and get into the facts page that tells you how to contact people that can help with your complaint - Roger Leadbeater from Yorkshire

I bought my car 2 years ago, from the first four weeks of me having it the depollution light keeps coming on and engine mangement light comes on then loses power when driving. I thought it was just my car until reading on here that other people have the same problem. I have lost count how many times its been in the garage, this car is a total nightmare going to ring trading standards tomorrow.<br /><br />

Same problem, off the road for over 4 months in 3 years - Zina Mitchell from Cheshire

SYDNEY AUSTRALIA. have 2009 model auto 207cc, depollution warning light has just started to appear, dealer has updated software on the car and that seems to have stopped the problem. Car is now awaiting roof testing for leaks in the rubber seals of driver side window to automatic roof. Wondering how they are going to test it for leaks , its supposed to be SOME special test?? Wonder if the apprentice is going to stand there for two hours running the hose over my car to see if the water gets in? Sick of driving my car with a towel! I was told that the dealer has NEVER heard of stories of the depollution light coming on? I was also getting a warning light that my hand break was still on - this would happen after I was driving for 20 minutes - and bang the warning beep would start - It’s quite frightening when you are driving! Believe me I’m NO dummy, my hand break was not on!! Dealer said that my hand brake is a bit loose, they are fixing this also with the roof problem! I’m just hoping that they can fix these little problems and I can get back to enjoying my car! Will keep you posted! - M Nolanski from England

I had 206 CC now have 207 CC 1.6 120 GT I never had problem with this car but I can say something about this power loss it could be the petrol. I always try and use big real petrol companies such as BP, Shell .. and always try to buy my petrol from same garage. I do beleive as these engines are new tecnology can better run with 97 octane! When buy 1 tank 97 then buy 95 I did experience engine stall ! Fuel change can be the problem. Get your fuel pump checked and use good petrol from ur regular garage. Good luck P.S I am orginally from Turkey. As we sometimes experience water in our petrol!!! And I do know this will cause many problems with engine! - Serkan Turgut from England

I have had my 207CC for almost 3 years and it has been disappointing since the first week. It stalls!!! It has been back to the garage so many times that I have given up taking it back because they can’t find the fault. In 2 months time it is 3 years old and I have to decide whether to take out extra cover in case it is a major item or sell the darn thing. Not only does it stall but I have had countless other little annoying faults. For me I would never buy a Peugeot again. For those people who have had no faults at all with their car you are really lucky - Daisy Daisy from Staffordshire

Hi, timing chain problems. Bought 207 GT second hand some 18 months ago. First 5 months into garage 4 times for depollution system. Eventually traced to bolts coming loose causing timing chain to come loose - apparantly the same engine is used in BMW Mini variants and they also suffered. Fine, all work covered under warranty, but as coming to end of warrany wrote to Peugeot. Last repair of tightening bolts carried out in December 2009 and Peugeot agreed to cover cost of further re-occurance for an extra year. Lo and behold two weeks before that warranty expired - more problems. Not depollution system warnings but a very noisy engine and loss of power - similar to exhaust blowing. And once again bolts had come loose! Peugeot covered cost as per their letter - some £100, which is obviously labour and which is likley to be basis cost if it happens again. Currently in dialogue with Peugeot, but their basic stance is "not interested". We will sell up a "not fit for purpose" car, and you will keep paying our dealer for the benefit of keeping it on the road. Probably will end up trading in - Mike Bell from Derbyshire

Mine’s been in garage for depollution fault 5 times since bought from new. The garage have renewed the sensors 4 times and renewed half of the electrical harness the 5th time. I am selling the car because the warranty runs out this year. The garage said I wasn’t doing enough miles. I only do under 10,000 a year. I had the car serviced because they then said it was that but it still happened. There is obviously a problem with other people’s judging by the other posts I have read but the garage said they had not heard of this fault before. I wouldn’t buy another Peuguot again!

4 star review

Okay, why did I give the car a 4 star rating, because in the the summer it’s a veeeeeery cool car. Now it’s January, I have to keep my top on (btw it’s not leaking). BUT.... I was really compelled to give it a three. For one I did buy it second hand with 15000KM on the clock (about 10000 miles), and from day one I had the feeling that it lacked power in the lower RPM range. I drove diesel for years before this one, so I thought that it could be an engine type thing, because from 3000 RPM up it flies. AND NOW COMES MY REAL PROBLEM!!! Yesterday I got the Pollution Error that everyone is talking about. I did checkout some other sites in Dutch, and they say it’s just a thing when you drive only short distances, and that you have to drive the pollution out by driving a very long distance and back. Well, the pollution error came right after I had driven 270KM (135KM to and fro), I shut down my car for 5 minutes, switched it on again, and there it was. I called my dealer, because my car is still on warranty, and the dealer said "walk it off. If it’s still there after a week we’ll make an appointment", but if I hear y’all complaining like this.... I DON’T WANNA DIE!!! WHEN I’M DRIVING 150 KM/h (~100MPH) !!!!!!!!

Responses to this review

It’s not a distance problem. I drive 110 miles every day (55 to work and back) I get the depolution system is faulty warning and some times the turbo drops out. Recently the timming chain came off. If any one is thinking about the extended warrenty buy it mine was just over £400 but it covered the timing chain incident which more than paid for itself. Prior to the timing chain the depolution warning would come and go sometimes it would stay on long enough to get it to the dealer. They still havent got an explanation for what the depoloution system is. Until the timing chain incident there seemed to be no problem driving around with the warning coming and going - John Hannney from Lancashire

Thank you for your reply, John. <br />I must say I haven’t checked out this site for more than a year now. As it turned out, there was "nothing" wrong with my engine, or so the dealer said. Just before my guarantee expired, I went to the dealer and confronted him about a message on my on-board computer saying my depollution system was faulty.<br />Everyone that came in that morning was experiencing that problem, which raised my eyebrows a bit. My computer just needed a reset. Oh, and there was a lack of power because my muffler had a hole. <br />Now hear this problem, re:Peugeot with their convertibles. It’s getting warmer and I want to open my top. No dice. Roof mechanism is bust. I looked at the ceiling and found a plug just above my head. <br />I opened the plug, which is actually there if the top doesn’t close anymore so you can turn it, and close manually. <br />So, once more, I opened that plug, and there were three things that fell out: a little spring, one brass button, and one plastic V-shaped switch. I showed it to my dealer, and there’s no other remedy than to rip my ceiling’s cover, and to checkout what is really the problem. The car is three years old and I had my top more closed than open. I will never buy a convertible again - Robert Pajtler from Netherlands

Having real problems with an anti-pollution faulty, engine cutting out. Very dangerous when in traffic. Been back to dealer 3 times unable to find any fault!! Very unhappy!!!!

Responses to this review

Hi, I have the same problem my car - kept cutting out at junctions but fixed itself. Then 2 days later it came up with "the depollution system is faulty". I took it down to a friend’s garage and it took 2 hours for him to find a fault. It came up with cam sensor fault and he is fitting a new one on Tuesday but did say that if it wasn’t that the engine management box could be at fault giving false data although he checked for resistance at all connections. He also said the timing belt could have either stretched or slipped slightly and that could be the cause even though the car is running okay. I am gettting fed up with this car as I have just had a new gearbox fitted and car is 4 years old with 26,000 miles on the clock. If he can’t fix the fault it’s going in part exchange back to the place I bought it from and they don’t test drive them so it will be a fitting punishment for them - Roger Leadbeater from Yorkshire

Responses to this review

57 model 16000 miles. Exact same problem - environment light coming on. New full engine fitted by garage. No explanation yet given by garage for original problem. The car was driven for 30 miles and the environment light came back on, loss of power. The car is now back in garage. The garage thinks it might be a computer problem. The garage has also refused to give new warranty on the new engine - Peter Moore from England

Peugeot 207 CC Verve 2009

3 star review

Currently annoyed because the engine kept cutting out, about 10-15 times in the first 3 weeks, usually when the engine is coldish, and always when the clutch is depressed on approach to a junction or traffic lights. Had its 1-month service. Told the Peugeot garage guys at the dealership. They couldn’t replicate the fault. Said they reset the software. However, it’s happening again two days later!! Apart from it being a mild inconvenience and embarrassing because it looks like I’m stalling all the time, twice it’s been downright dangerous as I’ve switched from 4th gear to second to join a road (left turn) but because the engine cut out, the powersteering disappeared and locked, as did the break, so I was unable to change course or speed and proceeded to drift powerlessly into a busy road........ Not good. Thank god no one crashed into the side of me at 60mph!! As a precaution now, i’m having to check the battery light EVERY TIME I want to change gear on approach to a roundabout/junction because I can’t risk pulling out in front of someone and the engine cutting out!!! Annoyed!!!! The garage guys just said "Customer to moniter" the situation. I’m now logging every time this happens and the exact circumstances. Will be requesting a new car if this is still happening in a month. :(

Responses to this review

I too am having this problem.... bought a brand new 207 Verve at the end of October 2009 and it has stalled on me probably about 4 times, always at night when I’m pulling onto my driveway. The worrying thing is the lights go out and all power goes and if this was to happen on a main road it could potentially be fatal! At first I thought it was my driving but on looking on the internet it seems that all Peugeots are having this problem...scary! I have just called Peugeot who say that it could be that I was in the wrong gear i.e. in 2nd and as it’s all computerised the car might not have liked this gear...hhhhmmmm going to keep an eye on the situation, note everytime this happens and what gear I’m in and then take it into the garage to be looked at. Not happy! - from Cambridgeshire

Have had the same problem and nearly caused a motorway pile up... Dealer says it was my driving - cheekey buggers. Going to Trading Standards before it happens again and someone is killed - Emma J from County Down

You can get your money back your 207CC if you can prove that you have given the dealer ’reasonable chance to rectify the problem’. I did this, got back every penny that I paid for the car 7 months previously. I have since gone back to VW and never looked back! But beware! It’s not easy and you will have a fight on your hands...

I need some advice about giving the garage enough chances to fix the car before I can get my money back!! - David Grey from England

Hi, I have a 207 Verve which I bought 16 months ago. Immediately had problems with bluetooth not working, this was rectified... eventually and after many trips to the dealer. Speedo needle started bouncing 6 months later, this was rectified.... eventually after they sent me off driving a car that was illegal for a week+. I’ve complained several times about the severe lack of power, especially when driving up a slight incline in the road - while the cars around me carry on at the same speed - they tell me it drives perfectly well for a 1.4 engine. I have also complained about the extremely poor economy of the car, this car uses over double the fuel that my last car did, which was also a 1.4 - they tell me they can’t find anything wrong with it. This remains unresolved. I have a tapping sound coming from the back of the car - the dealership have acknowledged the sound but tell me it’s a characteristic of the car and not a fault. This remains unresolved. The car is backfiring, the dealership tell me that it’s not backfiring it just sounds like it is and this is another characteristic of the car. This is still unresolved. The blue tooth periodically isn’t working at all, when it does there’s a loud hissing sound at the other end, they told me that because it still works (mostly) they can’t do anything. This is still unresolved. I am at my wits end! I have contacted customer care several times now and am currently waiting for a call back. To be honest, I’d love to give them the car back and have my money back... but I’m so tired of the fight it takes to get anything done... - from England

Please could you tell me what process you followed to eventually get a refund? I’ve had a 2007 207cc for five and a half months and it’s been in the garage 5 times; new ecu fitted, wiring harness, temp hose, brake lights went off (not due to the bulb or the fuse), the list is endless. They are soooo rude and there is no customer care at Robins & Day in Salford. I’ve lost countless hours at work costing me money. Please help! Thank you. - Jus Coops from England

I have been experiencing the same problem with my 207. I am just driving along and engine totally cuts out and power steering is lost. VERY DANGEROUS, have just been lucky that no cars have been behind me as would have caused a serious accident. Car has been back to Peugeot approx 5/6 times in 2 weeks and new software has been downloaded, fuel lines changed, fuel filter changed etc etc but still problem persists.

I bought this car when it was 11 months old with 4600 miles on the clock, I have the THP150 and it absolutely flies, beautiful to drive and my 18 year old daughter loves it. Quite good on fuel consumption, first service was £47. It has all the bells and whistles.

It has gone to the dealer today for its first service and have just had a call from them to say it needs another tyre and now needs new brakes and discs. Also, this car is not what I thought it was going to be. One year old and I have already payed out over £700. What a let down. Do not buy this car. I hope to get shot of it today. NEVER, EVER will I buy a Peugeot 207 CC or any other Peugeot. We have a Dodge; we have had it for three years - my god it has not cost us &pound200 in ththat time - not like that Peugeot.

Nice car .... but.... in and out of main dealership with de pollution fault and lack of power. Was interested in getting 308CC 1.6THP150 but wouldn’t touch with a barge pole at the moment.

Responses to this review

Further to my last report our 207CC has been back to the main dealer twice more. The misfire/lack of aceleration was finally sorted by replacing the cam follower and chain. No sooner had it back than an ESP fault appeared. Back for new ABS brake parts to be fitted. This weekend the engine was started from cold and the electric fan came on immediately together with the depollution warning light. Because I thought it had overheated I had it recovered to the main dealer on the back of a breakdown truck. My wife needs a car for work but they had no loan cars available and told me there is no liability to provide a car under the warranty. It was suggested I should hire a car! I have bought many new cars of different makes, including four Peugeots, over the years but this 207CC is by far the most troublesome car I have ever owned. Apart from the inconvenience this 2 year old car has cost Peugeot themselves warranty costs in 4 figures - Graham Mitson from Surrey

I got my 207cc Sept 2007 after swapping my 206cc for this new updated shape. Couldn’t wait to get it after my 206cc with its leaky roof. At first I loved my NEW 207cc cruising around with the top down. Then one morning I’m heading to work and it just cuts out, power steering turns off and I’m heading toward a bus stop, there I am with a gang full of people waiting for the bus, in my brand new 207cc with its brand new number plates and its broken down, how embarrassed was I!!! Then if that’s not bad enough the bus came, couldn’t stop in the bus stop because I was in the way. Everyone had to walk out in front of me so they could get on the bus. What funny looks I was getting. I took it back to Peugeot, they kept it for a day, drove round in it, hooked it up to their computer and said there was nothing wrong with it. After taking it back several times, I was told its the way I drive it. Whatever!!!! I said the same after my 206 but I tell you now, I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER PEUGEOT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve nearly had it 2 yeard now and its still cutting out. Biggest pile of c**p ever!!!!

I am gobsmacked to see all these negative reports. I only bought my 207 CC last Thursday and today I have had a problem with the depollution system and also the brakes. The car lost power and I was quite concerned about continuing to drive the car, which I had to, to get home. I feel rather down now. Will speak to the garage tomorrow and am printing all these reports off to show them. Thanks.

Having read the below comments, we have had bother with our car also. Agree it is a lovely car when running. OK, it is a great car to drive, sturdy, quiet and no leaks!! However, within weeks of getting it, it stalled whilst driving for no reason, engine management system came on and depollution warning also showed up. Obviously when it cut out the power steering went - very dangerous. Back to dealer, sorted and the fault returned another two times in the next 6 months; eventually requiring a brand new engine!! To date the car has only done 2000 miles, but only because it travels locally and after 10 months with new engine the same problem has just happened again tonight. Wife hates driving it now and has no confidence. Dealership won’t admit to knowing about similar problems and just keep blanking us as the car is now 18 months old. Any other similar problems - or any advice on how to deal with it?

Responses to this review

If you buy the car new and it is not right, then you can claim ’unfit for purpose’ this has happened in a number of cases over the last few years. But please be warned it is a lengthy and painful process and you have to be very determined and strong to fight the Manufacturer. It is best to do some research about your type of car and about other owners with the same problem and contact your local trading standards. Don’t get solicitors involved unless it gets ugly - from Hampshire

Depollution warning - problems for 3 months goes to garage ok for few days then same again - anyone else getting same problem?

Responses to this review

I have a 56 peugeot and have had no trouble until now. My depollution light came on today, could you tell me if this is serious? I have read many of the reports and it seems to me this is quite common - Syd Gerrish - from

I have a 207cc, just four years old, and one month out of warranty. I had to have catalytic converter replaced. This also happened to me October 2010 with 206cc. Lost all faith in Peugeot. I have been offered my next service free, I don’t think so, still pursuing it - Rose Davies from England

Generally speaking I am happy with my 207CC but there is a build-up of condensation/water in the front headlight unit. I went to the Dealer who suggested that it was malicious damage to the unit that has caused the problem. I am reluctant to accept this as there is no other sign of damage to the side of the car. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

I bought my first Peugeot in 2004. I just love driving it and get admiring looks. It is Flamenco Red with black leather interior. Never had any problems with this beautiful car. Just so smooth. Have done nearly 15000 miles now, so in order not to lose too much money am going to change it for a new Neysha blue. Can’t wait. Would not have any other car, its so stylish.

I have got the 1.6 engine. Every morning when starting the car from cold it makes noise like starter motor stays engaged, took it to dealer and they said this is normal for 207cc 1.6. Has anyone else had this problem... and it keeps stalling when dip clutch and cruise to traffic lights - very dangerous.

Just about to buy a 207 cc with similar noise, has been checked out by a main dealer and sys "its normal". Still not sure whether to but or not. Does anyone else have this noise at cold start up... sounds very similar to loose exhaust baffles or a loose piece of metal... It disappears when the car is warmed up - David Cairns from Durham

I have just had a similar noise, when engine started, engine was cold, the car make an extraordinary loud tapping/grinding noise, sounded like, yes, either starter or as if exhaust fell off, or even lack of oil pressure! Turned off engine as it was not right within a few seconds, re-started, absolutely fine :-/ A bit scary, the noise echoed my garage out! - Dudley Ginn from England

I got this car in Jan 08 after trading in my convertible VW Beetle. The first 2 weeks were fine, then it rained... it leaks in through the roof where it joins the windows and has been in to the dealer on numerous occasions. According to the dealer, all convertibles leak and it is what I should expect!! Apparently this is what warranty is for. The level of service at the dealership is terrible and to top it off, the car has now developed a serious gearbox fault. I am currently in a battle with Peugeot to get my money back on the car. Does anyone else have a leaky 207cc? if so, you are more than welcome to contact me: karen.alabaster@kier.co.uk

Great car, can’t knock it AT ALL! Comfortable on long journeys, plenty of power, handles fantastic, and wow... when the roof’s down and the sun shining it’s heaven I got an onyx black Peugeot 207cc THP 150 GT, from brand new, 2 miles on clock. I got it in December 2007 and it’s now June 2008, I’ve done just over 3,000 miles and I can’t say I have any dislikes, it’s a great runner, sooooo smooth, pretty good on fuel too; if you don’t push it to hard. It’s a great cruiser, I loves it to bits.

Fabulous car until the day when it started to show that the Depollution system was faulty. Went to a mechanic but shortly afterwards it started to turn off, make strange sounds while on and continued to show the Depollution system fault. Went to mechanic again, but same thing all over again.

I don’t have a Rover 75 now but wish I did. I had the same problem which was a sensor connected to the air filter, if you have this replaced, you will not have the problem again (cost approx £200) but change the air filter every 5,000-6,000 miles instead of 10,000 - Alan Lee from Shropshire

I am writing this report from Australia where for the last 4 months I have been madly in love with my cab 207.......... that was until today ...... why it happened and how it happened remains to be seen.....but in medium traffic when I had to stop ...depressing the clutch in the arm that is situated at the back of the clutch pedal broke ..it is no bigger than a pen thus the clutch would not engage and then trying to push the brake which also went straight to the floor..and my little baby had a mind of its own and continued to do as it liked .... thanking our lucky stars we were only going 20kms an hour and it crunchingly ran into 307 ... true ...... so please all you other owners out there please get your dealer to check this out in your cars........so miss leo and cant wait until it gets out of hospital.....

Peugeot 207 CC

The Peugeot 207 CC is a very good looking car and that alone will be enough for it to hold its value well in sun-lovin’ Britain. The added attraction of a folding metal roof guarantees the 207 CC has healthy used prices, so this is a drop-top to own, enjoy and not worry about the pennies in.
