You've got to hand it to Peugeot, it's persistent. Despite the decreasing popularity of large mass-market executive cars in the Nineties, the French giant still launched one in late 2000.

Loads of electrical glitches connected to the second (service) battery in the boot that drains very quickly, bringing up fault codes that are automatically rectified when the battery is charged.problems and expense (if you use a peugeot garage!) with the dpf and topping up of eolys fluid. I perform my own maintenance.there are loads of approved parts available on the market so spares & the price thereof is not a problem.fuel consumption is very good for this model,2.0 litre 8 valve, considering the size of the car!

Engine is great but the electrics are "indifferent". It's a 3.0l v6 petrol plus the road tax is ł450pa. not great!!

A good (cheap) exec car. Drives well, comfortable, lots of gadgets. Economy not great. Drinks oil a bit.

Much more reliable than I thought it would be, excellent fuel economy (47 mpg overall), comfortable and practical on long journeys to southern France and well equipped with what would be extras on German models.
