Peugeot 1007 1007 HATCHBACK 2005 - 2009

4 star review

The car is quick enough to keep up with fast moving traffic. Many of the problems reported can be cured by keeping an eye on the door contacts, front and rear and keeping the door seals pliable in winter with rubber food. The 1.6 engine contrary to reports is really lively. Auto lag is mainly from one to two, once it gets under way just floor it if you want a quick getaway. It`s a great little car, shame Peugeot didn't make more effort. Electrical problems beset all French cars and expect alternator failures an other external bits if you have a Friday car. Don't ever use Peugeot dealers to fix anything after the guarantee period. Most small garages can do diagnostics and fix at half the cost. Remember there are thousands of these cars running around with no faults. T

A NIGHTMARE. MY OPINION IS THAT THIS ELECTRONIC GEAR SYSTEM AND THE ELECTRICAL ''GADGETRY'' WERE NEVER PROPERLY AND THOROUGHLY TESTED OUT. BUT SEEMINGLY--:''THROWN'' ONTO THE WORLD MARKETS. AND WORST STILL, THE PEUGEOT DEVELOPERS REFUSE TO ADMIT OR TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY OF THEIR ACTIONS. WHY DO WE HAVE MOTOR MANUFACTURERS AND GOVERNMENT INSTITUTIONS WHO TURN A DISSINTERESTED EYE AWAY WHEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS. HEALTH AND---''SAFETY'', ITS A JOKE.!

I bought this car because I thought it would be ideal for shopping, travelling to work, etc., but I have had trouble with the doors opening when driving it. When we had snow last week I couldn’t get in either door. I was so desperate I ended up getting in the boot and crawling over the seats! I can only open the driver door manually, but at 5.2 and being a slim lady, to heave the door shut in a sitting position was impossible. The passenger door opens and closes when it feels like it and I am scared to have children or anyone elderly in this car as I am frightened they would receive a nasty accident. I am really unhappy with this car and if I could give it a 0 I would.

Had this car since 2008 and it had 2 years warranty. I took it back to Holdcroft in Stoke, where I’d purchased it from as I started having gear problems and a door fault. I bought the car on finance which was the biggest mistake, but I bet if I’d chosen the Mini I’d also been considering instead I wouldn’t be writing this. I’ve spent so much money on this car it’s just unreal and nobody cares. I think we should all get together and demand a full refund for these faulty cars. Why have Peugeot stopped making these cars I wonder?

I was very happy with this car and had no problems with it when I bought it. I loved the sliding doors, which made it much easier to get my two children into the car. I had an accident in the car a few days ago when I had to do an emergency stop and the car behind slammed into the back of me, the doors of the car at this point stopped working and I was unable to get myself and my children out of the car. Luckily there was a man who stopped to help and he was able to force the door open, but even he found the door incredibly difficult and heavy to open! I won’t be keeping the car once it has been fixed as I don’t feel safe in the car.

Bought my 1007 1.6 Sport 2-tronic in April 2011 with 33,000 miles showing from a dealer. After 13 days I needed a new clutch activator and had to take it to a Peugeot dealer as no one else would touch it, which cost me over £800! I’ve owned it now for nearly 3 months and I have to say apart from the gear select problem, it is now running nicely. No problems with the doors but won’t close if you park 2 wheels on the kerb. I must say the full length panoramic roof makes it even more enjoyable. Love it!

I bought my 1007 just before the horribly cold winter in 2010/2011. We had -20 celsius for many weeks and up to -32. I was afraid about the sliding doors but they did function very well with no problems at all. Once after wet weather, on a very cold morning, I had to push the passenger door open. Lovely car but obviously needs more care than a usual vehicle does.

Bought mine with 30,000 on the clock in September 2010. Needed something small, economical with good mpg and road tax, with the added benefit of easy access (I have arthritis). Having been warned about the electrical problems a lot are plagued with, I took out a 2-year extended warranty. I had one problem with the door needing resetting, but other than that I’ve had no problems with the electrics so far. Nice, economical ride, nippy, and I have had no problems with the electrics in freezing weather even though the car lives outside in the worst of a Scottish winter. Very happy with it so far.

I bought my 1007 from Arnold Clark in Edinburgh in 2006 and experienced door problems which seemed to go away by themselves. Family issues brought me to live in Zimbabwe and I brought my 1007 with me. Since then, I have had similar problems as other posts such as ABS faults and a fault with the gearbox where the car will stop if you go into 4th gear. Also the left door cannot be used because if I open it, the door will not close properly even when locked and the warning sound beeps constantly. I got in touch with Arnold Clark and they didn’t even have the decency of replying to my 3 faxes. The Peugeot dealer here is less than hopeless and they wanted to charge me $8,000 for a new gearbox!

2 star review

Enjoyed reading all the reports and can sympathise with those experiencing faults. My 1007 was bought with 6000 miles on the clock and except for the regulation door problems early on (cured when Peugeot supplied a release note explaining a simple cure) have had enjoyable driving. 60+ mpg in the Summer lower in Winter. But after a round trip of 410 miles to the Isle of Mull at Easter 2011 experienced problem with power steering failure, not a happy moment going round the Ardullie roundabout at the end of the Cromarty bridge. Inspection, diagnostic check and a new starter motor left me with a bill for £550.00 Peugeot dealer’s prices are horrendous, at 44000 miles now on the clock it will be local garages from now on. But overall the car is great driven with respect, but don’t expect super mini performance, it is ideal for me at 81 and having driven for over 60 years this is the most comfortable car over long distances that I have ever owned, except for a Reliant Scimitar.

I would be interested in the release note you mention about the cure for door problems. I have a driver’s door with a mind of its own. It will open and close without any help and when locked, keep locking and unlocking will after a few minutes until the battery goes flat - Robert Blair from Staffordshire

Hi, I would like to know what the simple fix is. My passanger door will not open electronically, I have to use the manual release - Ian Foster from Lanarkshire

If your door won’t work electronically, it is most probably the actuator which is broken. The best way to check is remove the front door panels on both doors and find the actuator which is mounted by the interior door handle and try the drivers side actuator on the passenger door. When you have the door stripped and move the handle, you will notice a white piece of plastic move into another bulky piece of plastic. This is the actuator. They are interchangable, not specific to each side of the car. If this fixes the problem then a new one from Peugeot will cost around £45 - Chris Gilbert from Worcestershire

5 star review

Had the car only 3 months before written-off by speeding motorist coming in opposite direction. Loved it. I wanted something "quirky" and it fitted the bill. Excellent mpg if driven with a light foot - over 60 to the gallon! Problems: like many people I had a temporary issue with a door not functioning. It wouldn’t open or close unless I heaved it manually. I resolved this my spraying all contacts and runners etc with a water dispersing lubricant. I also wiped the contacts and Hey-Presto working doors. The local Puegeot garage said that problem doors brought to them were frequently just an issue of needing spraying as I had done. I noticed in a few reviews that people had probs with doors not opening or closing in very cold weather. I noticed when the doors were frozen and I had to break the ice with a heave that the handle stayed in the open position because of ice build-up. This meant that when I tried to close the door with remote or with switch that it immediately opened again. Simple solution was to spay around the handle mechanism to unfreeze it and disperse all water. With the mechanism released it worked beautifully. I’ll miss the little car but I’ve now had the "quirky phase" and time to move on. Having said that, if it came as a five door and with a bigger engine then I’d have one.

My car is a Peugeot 1007 1.4l sport "version 3" it is the latest version made by Peugeot!. Great "little" car with a very good behaviour on the city roads and also on highways too. My height is 1m 90cm and is a perfect car for me because I have an easy access in. No problem at all since ’07. Only 74 hp but with the ecu reprogrammed you can get 10-15 hp plus and it’s cheap. Treating the doors with a grease spray or something, but not WD40, will keep them working quietly and smooth and watertight!

Responses to this review

Hi - love to know how you got your 1007 chipped to give extra 10-15bhp. Every chipping house I’ve talked to have said don’t bother because they can’t get more than 4hp extra from the 75bhp version - Paul Gilfedder from France

Bought this car 3 months ago and as there was not much of a service history took it to my local garage for thorough check. New wheel bearings required and installed. One week later, driver door refused to stay open. I achieved a good agile method of getting in and out of the car without being crushed. In spite of all the safety gizmos those doors can hurt. Took the car to Peugeot dealer who could not find a fault. Drove away from dealership but got belted by the door closing by on its own initiative. Door fault has now vanished, works fine., but now I have a warning of non-functing airbag, Peugeot dealer thinks its something to do with the wiring loom under one of the seats - their advice was to ignore the warning light, the airbag works fine. Yesterday the power assisted steering failed, so I booked it into a garage but this morning it works fine. The car has a perverse personality problem, it doesn’t need an engineer it wants a phsychiatrist. If the car does not like the route you intend to travel it will do something to let you know all about it. My Dolce is not keen on Supermarkets, so that is where most of the problems seem to start.

Used to have the same problem with the non-functional airbag warning (local Peugeot dealer said the same thing), oddly resolved by starting the engine without touching the pedals. Hasn’t happened in months. Hope it helps - from Portugal

Bought the car From Arnold Clark it was 4 years old, but only 12,000 miles. I had problems with door in first week, garage repaired, after only 1 or 2 weeks, the esp not function message came on. The garage said that they had fixed the glitch, but to my alarm, while holidaying in the highlands, the esp not functioning and abs not functioning message comes on at the same time all the dials including the speedo do not work, not good while driving on a motorway. We have taken it back to Arnold Clark who cannot find out what is wrong. We paid for Arnold Clark’s Autocare warranty, but they keep saying it might cost to repair. I don’t think Arnold Clark’s customer service is as good as they think, the word not fit for purpose will be ringing in their ears if they can’t fix this problem.

There are too many negative reviews for the 1007 as I own this car and I love it. I have never had any problems with the electric sliding doors, I can only really think of benefits to them, the seats are extremely comfy and supportive, the stereo is great and the speakers are powerful and most importantly the car is extremely safe and I feel really happy travelling at 70mph on the motorway. The 2-tronic gearbox is acceptable, I find it very smooth on roads over 50mph and I cannot agree with reviews that it does not pick up quickly, one just has to drive a little more relaxed. My 1007 is in tacoma yellow which is a lovely bright happy colour. It is a super used buy as my 05 plate was only £3995 from a main Peugeot dealer with 9,000 miles on the clock (and I know you can buy 05 plate 1007 from £2500). It is very well kitted out for the money with climate control, alloys, 7 airbags all as standard. I am sorry they have stopped making the 1007 as in my opinion it is a great car. Safety has got to be your main concern when looking to buy a car and the 1007 scored fantastically well in the NCAP tests and it really does represent a very safe car for a very good price.

I wrote this original review however I have now had so many problems with the electric drivers door which occurs every day I use it. So far Robins & Day Peugeot have been hopeless as I bought it from their Preston dealership on 130910. It has been back 5 times and it’s still not fixed and last week the door nearly squashed my very elderly grandma who was trying to get out from the rear seat when the door shot back and it caused bruises to my upper arm as I tried to stop the door but it squashed me in-between the door and the pillar. I would now not recommend this car due to this fault as it had simply become unusable. I have now had to get Trading Standards involved as Robins & Day Liverpool have been totally hopeless and the supplying dealer unhelpful so far - Ed Mercer from Lancashire

Like all the other people in these reviews, I have had nightmare problems with my electric doors - opening when driving or when car was parked overnight (and locked), refusing to open, and on one occasion, locking me inside the car! I’ve had catalytic converter failure messages on five different occasions, with the car refusing to go into gear, necessitating breakdown recovery to the garage. They changed plugs, filters, put new parts in the gear box, and ran repeated diagnostics on the doors. They have yet to find a problem with the doors - and even said that I was the only person that they knew of that was experiencing this!! I ended up talking to Peugeot Main Customer Services - who promised the earth - including taking the car to their own workshop in the Midlands and even replacing the car! Great I thought! They asked me to run the car for a few weeks and let them know how it went. I phoned them and told them that I was still having door problems and all they would do was put it into the dealership again - who found nothing wrong and put it down to intermittent fault. We have done the whole WD40 stuff etc, that was recommended on here and still having problems. Im now out of warranty and will have to foot any bill needed, including £75 each time for the diagnostic! I bought this car as I’m disabled and am totally devastated with it - I now hate driving it. I’ve had it three years and it only has 11100 on the clock! Peugeot Customer Care now hang up on me if I telephone them. They ask for registration number and name - then click - they’ve hung up. No wonder that Peugeot withdrew this car - they should accept responsibility for the rogue cars that they sold to us as well. Or are they going to wait for a serious accident with the doors and someone suing them? I too wish that I could give a 0 star rating!!

Loved the car until... serious defect with passenger door (opening when driving), EPS and Automatic Gear selector. Dealer has quoted over £900 to repair. Electrical fault and door problems ’not connected’. Wiring loom needs repairing, door needs ’actuator’. Car has only 25000 miles on the clock. I contacted Peugeot but they have absolutely no interest as the car is out of warranty. I am really disillusioned and angry. Dealer has been good - product is rubbish. Just a pity that I can’t award 0 or negative stars.

I too had a door problem looked on the computer for faults and found that the door problem was the same as mine. I found out that at the back of the door there is a small u shaped clip, which was broken. I then had to tell my dealer as they never found it. Since then its been ok not opening and closing on its own. Sadly it now doesn’t open with the remote and also has a gearbox problem. I need to get rid of this car, which I did love at first. Hope this helps. <br /><br />

Since we bought this car, we have problems :( It’s very cute car, very special and different. We loved it on first sight. And then he came. First, problems with doors. No matter what temp is in the air, there were problems, with strange noise. Dealer fix it. Then problem with accumulator, only after 2 years. Car is in garage and we drive it rarely, because we also have a 307 (year 2002) which its perfect. We had to change accumulator and there was some problem with alternator. So, we change accumulator which our dealer advised but there was still problem with alternator; their conclusion was that we drive slow (?!?). Problem disappear by itself. Again problem with doors (several times, I don’t remember all of them). Then problem with automatic gears - it was unable to change into reverse. Dealer change some small thing on gear (but it was expensive). After 5 months (present time) we have new problem - again with gear. When I want to change into speed 4, it starts choking and it changes by itself into neutral with message on displey "Automatic gear fault". I turn off my car and then only after 2-3 minutes, I can turn it on. Now, for 2 days, our dealer is trying to fix it (but they don’t know what is realy the problem), they said they need to call our capital city and main Peugeot in Croatia but this model of car was very short time on market in our country so I think there is small number of these models in Croatia :( Fixing problems cost more than 1000?. So, my final opinion is that 1007 is very cute city car (with very practical way of opening doors) with too many problems (undeveloped way of opening doors). I’m very sad...

80k on the clock, have had from new. Occasional door problems as covered, WD40 on runs, check mechanism on base at rear of door - complete, or stuck. Usually reset by manually moving door to rearmost position and listen to mechanism resetting. Recently mysterious messages appear on drivers information panel falsely, and a couple of times power assist steering has gone off. These odd events have often been reset by stopping and restarting the engine. Four times now the car has not restarted - ignition lights appear but no connection to starter motor. Results; new alternator, new battery, two new starter motors. The dealer won’t properly investigate what I believe is simply a glitch in the electronic control. Last starter motor two weeks old and useless. I believe power is being wrongly directed by all this wonderful Electronics!

Very nice little car until the passenger door decided to not work via fob or switch. It opens manually but I bought the car so that I had the joys of an electric door!! Also recently after being stuck in traffic for 3 hours, sometimes when changing gear the engine massively over revs! I loved it when I first got it but now it’s a nightmare!

Hi to all. Well after four years of virtual trouble free ownership of what I considered a great little car with execptional MPG, always 60+ returns, I am now suffering an horrendous amount of faults, all appearing just before an MOT (NCT in Ireland). Passenger door has failed completey, won’t open with pully or close, just beeps all the time; ABS/EPS warning light comes on; windscreen washers not working. All enought to fail a test in it’s own right let alone all together. Very pi**ed off, and now living on disability. I’ll get a garage to look at dust on wheel sensors as stated above by someone, any other advice would be appreciated.    <br /><br />

I bought my Peugeot 1007 about 5 months ago. I have had trouble with the sliding doors when temperature is below 0 degrees, and I will try the tips mentioned in all these helpful reviews. Apart from that, I like it, but when you can’t shut the door in the ice and snow, all the other good features are worthless. Does anybody know if is possible to completely disconnect the electrics, so that the doors are manually operated only? This won’t help many of you, but I could cope with that! Thank you.

I’ve had my 1007 for 3 years and had the problem every winter. Took some advice from someone about car lubricant, which you can get from any motor store for about £5. Used it this winter and worked a treat. Had no more problems with this issue - from Bedfordshire

Hi, I bought my car just over a month ago because I liked its looks and it was cheap as it was an ex-company car with believe it or not 89,000 miles on the clock. I got a 1 year warranty with it and got the price down to £2,400 so took it. So far I have not really had any door problems but the tensioner for the alternater belt went costing £90 and 2 weeks ago a gearbox failure came up on the display. On investigation at my garage the clutch was found to be broke into pieces. I was really p*ssed off as the warranty company said it was due to wear. I paid £300 to replace the clutch. I thought the problems were over but yesterday whilst driving home the gearbox failure warning came on again and the car would not move for a minute or so, but then started to work again. Has anyone experienced these problems before and do you know the cause?

Responses to this review

I have had problems with my 20k warranty. Clutch went at 15000miles and they refused to let me have it on warranty as they felt it was due to wear and tear and it cost over £500 to repair..

I bought the car from Arnorld Clark and as soon as I drove it away I was having problems with the passenger door opening and closing. It would be parked in the street and the door would open even when I locked it. But the worst problem is when I was driving and stopped at traffic lights; the left door opened of its own accord even though the car was locked. Its been a nightmare.

Because I am disabled I chose the 2007. Peugeot owned the car for the first 18 months (did 10,500 miles) and I have owned it since - 2 years 6 months (have done 8,500 miles). I have had many problems with the doors but once it was out of its warranty period a year ago I have waited for each incident and let it go as it usually rights itself overnight. However, I now have a more serious problem. The screen in the car shows "ABS/ESP not functioning". I took it to the local dealer where I bought the car and was told it was a fauly ABS pump and would cost £1,150. I picked myself up from the floor and said I did not think this was fair as the car had only done 19,000 miles and they said they would contact Peugeot who said they could not help as the problem "did not fit their criteria". As the car was almost 4 years old the MOT was due so I had the work done and had to pay up front, this was their rule I was told. I fortunately paid on my credit card. I went to collect the car from the garage but the new pump replacement had failed to correct the problem, the screen was still showing the same fault. The service manager said they would have to send for another pump as the new one must be faulty??? I have not had the new pump fitted and the car is 4 years old today. I am paying to have the car examined by an electronics expert as I have been told by several independant mechanics that they do not think that the fault can have been the pump in the first place and I have paid £1500 for a different fault that could be put right much more cheaply. Apart from its annoying faults I like the car but I dont think I can afford it. I had Hyundai’s previously and kept the last one for 6 years; they never ever had a single fault.

I got the 1007 from Hardies at Halbeath, Dunfermline on mobility. When I inquired about the doors the sales man said; OH WE HAVE HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH THE DOORS. So I took his word for it and took it. Well, I only had it a week or so and the doors started working on there own, even when moving.The petrol and speedometer weren’t showing anything... so back it went. In and out it went for months and every time I got it back from Hardies I was assured by the service manager it was OK. One day my 3 year old grand son was climbing in the car and the door started to close; my grandson had his hands on the rail which the door moves on. I had to push the door back or he would have lost his finger. Eventually it came to a point when I got out of the car and the door closed trapping my hand. I went right back to the dealer and told them what had happened and to fix it or keep it. OK... we will fix it: 2 days later I got it back. Its OK now, the mechanic is sure its OK. So off I went happy. It was Mothers’ Day and we went to Colne near Preston to see the kids. When we got there the doors wouldn’t open and after forcing them open they wouldn’t close. That was it. I phoned mobility and now I have taken legal action against the dealer and Peugeot. Mobility insurance have taken the case on. So I would advise anyone with the same problem to contact Mobility insurance and claim your benefit back. Don’t just accept it.

This is the first small car I have ever had & purchased it as my wife has mobility problems. Found it surprisingly good - handles well & is quite lively if you keep the revs above 4000. Like everybody, had initial problems with doors which supplying dealer (Arnold Clark) didn’t have a clue how to fix. However, most problems can be sorted simply by greasing the locating plugs and sockets which are located at both the font and rear of the doors. They have now been trouble free for over two years! Problems can also occur if the exterior handle is used to open the door. If it is not pushed fully forward again after use the door will then fail to stay shut.

Peter, saw your report re 1007; I am having problems with mine and i have no trust with the main dealer who, when i took the car there, without looking at the problem, said its most likely the motor which also operates a strap which could snap. Upon asking how much it would cost to repair they said roughly £1000-00.I have since had an auto electrican look at the car and he gave it a sound examination, testing all components. All were working and the AE thinks its something simple but as we have no wiring diagram we dont know where else to look. I have looked at both points you mentioned and both contain grease - John Osborne - from

I like the car and I’m gutted that it’s been discontinued. The door problems usually stem from dirty contacts on the door frame or dirt in the door catch at the rear of the door. If the door refuses to close properly, a few squirts of WD-40 on the contacts and the door latch will uaually fix it, it did in my case anyway.

Hello, I just bought a Peugeot 1007 year ’07 sport automatic. Should it have a CD changer in the glove compartment? Thanks - Brian Steven from Scotland

Hello, I too have a 1.6 sport trip tronic car and I also wondered if it was supposed to have a CD changer but apparently not. Can anyone tell me if their fog lights did not work but the car says they are on? Took it to Peugeot and they put it on the brain but they did not know, also I have never had problems with my car. It runs great but wondered what miles to the gallon she is supposed to do. I get 33-36 miles, I drive mine in automatic all the time, hope some have any ideas. Thanks - from County Antrim

Bought for ease access for disabled driver. Left door opens even when the car is locked. When you shut it it just opens again. This has happened when parked and unattended. It has happened while setting off with a passenger - very dangerous. No warranty so paid £350 for new lock mechanism which has not fixed it.

I have just bought the Peugeot 1007. Straight away, on the 2nd day, I had problems with the left door. I phoned up my dealer and they have booked it in - the only problem is that even when I have locked it it seems to open up. This is a safety issue as twice the door was left open in the street. Otherwise the car is a great drive but I will be speaking to my dealer about the mechanical faults on the door as I only took out a warranty for a year.

I bought this car 1 year ago, reason - easy to get in and out of. The first couple of weeks I had trouble with the doors opening on their own. I found the cure for this problem was to clean all the door contacts with lighter fluid, also clean any crud off the bottom rail where the roller runs. If you have trouble with the doors its best to reset them, it tells you how to do this in the handbook (its easy). I found the ride harsh and bumpy, the tyres fitted by Peugeot were near the wear bar so I had a set of Toyo’s fitted - WOW what a difference the car is quiet, smooth, holds the road much better, and seems to go better. If I drive it well it will do well over 50mpg, if I drive it enthusiastically the mpg does drop. I found if overtaking it’s best to select manual gearchange because if it’s in auto and you put your foot down it suffers from a flat spot while it tries to change gear which can be quite frightening. Also, if I want to drive enthusiastically I find it best to select manual, all in all I find my 1007 a cracking little car and I’m pleased I bought it.

My passenger door has not worked properly since I bought it second hand 2 years ago but as I did not use it much then it didn’t really matter. However, it has now stopped opening electronically completely and sometimes locks and will not open manually. I have taken it into my local dealer who has had it a since last Thursday. He has put a new motor in it which blew something else which I have had to pay for the bill - so far is about £350. He said that its because it hasn’t been used enough, would it have been caused by over use if I had said we were always using it? Having read the other reviews I think this is a fault that should be taken up by Peugeot. I shall be speaking to Trading Standards about this.

In 20 years of owning cars I have never experienced anything like this! The electronic doors on my car are unreliable, unpredictable and dangerous; they have a mind of their own and when they decide to close of their accord nothing will stop them. One one occasion they closed unexpectedly on my daughter as she attempted to enter the car. She tried to push the door back but it would not stop, she propelled herself backwards out of the car but the door caught her foot. Fortunately her lace was not tied and she was able to slip her foot out of the shoe. The door closed on top of the shoe and crushed it. We had a lucky escape it could have been a very different story. I took delivery of the car yesterday after it being with the Dealer for 16 days to repair the doors, (second time to Dealer with same fault). I drove it home, exited the car and the driver’s door failed; it jammed half way closed. I phone the Peugeot Dealer, they told me they could do nothing until next Tuesday. I was in a very distressed state and stressed that I was due to collect my child and now had no transport. I made the dealership aware that it was raining and the interior of my car was being soaked, I conveyed my deep concern that the car would be vulnerable to theft if it lay open for four days. None of this made any difference. After several communications they agreed to take responsibility for any damage caused if I manually forced the door shut. I tried to open the car this morning and neither of the doors would operate, I now have no access to the vehicle. I contacted the Dealer Principle of the Peugeot Dealership to inform him of this new development and he told me to ’f*** off’ and slammed the phone down. Luckily I recorded the conversation and intend to pass it to Peugeot UK. Other problems include; bubbling paintwork at the back of the car, paintwork peeled off the exterior runners and the vinyl eroded on both doors. The car is still under Manufacturer’s Warranty, in addition to this I purchased extended warranty when I bought the vehicle. I am the first owner of the car, prior to this it was a demonstrator. In conclusion I would not advise anyone to even consider purchasing this vehicle.

From time to time, especially when temperature gets below 0, I’ve got a problem with the sliding door - I can open it but it wont close. It just bounces and opens again. I let it run for 10 - 20 minutes until it gets hot inside and it solves the problem each time. About warranty issues - check with somebody who knows something about warranty’s because in my country, if they repair something on your car, the warranty for that part starts to run from the beginning. If you have a problem with opening the doors - bouncing and coming right back at you - this could be an issue - there is a small switch that doors hit when they are fully open. Its located at the and of the bottom rail. Over it is a slightly curved piece of plastic that in my case was broken and the door didn’t hit the "off" switch. Hope this helps.

Dear Davor, I would like to thank you for you help on this site. I too have a door problem and after reading about the clip at the back of the door I looked at mine and it to was broken. I informed the garage that had it for a 2nd time and they seemed to think they knew about the clip. Well when I showed him where it was broken they didn’t have a clue as they didn’t seem to know where to look. So thank you again, it has been fixed. It is now with the garage for the 3rd time - air bag warning on the other door. I’m not too worried as I think the door is where they checked it on the other side and tried to compare it, so I think it’s only the motor. I have also found that after I got it back it would open and close on its own but I found that the door panel was loose and was able to push it in again, no problem. Apart from this I love my little car and as I have back problems it’s so easy to get into. Thanks again - from Hertfordshire

I have had my 1007 for almost a year now and generally find it a great little car with plenty of room inside for the driver and passenger, there is not so much room in the rear seats but then again it is only a super mini. There is however a big problem with the sliding doors which tend to have a mind of their own and close on their own accord, this is potentially a safety problem. It has been into the Peugeot dealer once already and the problem still exists, I am returning it to the garage for the second time and hopefully these problems will be solved before my warranty runs out in a few months. I know that if these problem persist after the warranty runs out I will be looking at a very costly bill to sort things out myself. I have read the reviews and the problems I have are not unique. This does seem to be a design fault.

I bought my 1007 three months ago because of the excellent fuel economy and 5 star crash rating. It is small but Tardis-like on the inside. The 2nd hand price was low (£6.2K) for a car with 15K on the clock and balance of 18 months manufacturers warranty. It is also loaded with extras; ESP, climate control, electric sunroof, automatic lights, windscreen wipers, etc. It’s slower than my last car (a Merc 220cdi), but not as slow in respect of real world motoring as some of the professional reviewers suggest. Besides, I’m most interested in getting from a-b in comfort and safety with the least possible expense, moreover it feels good driving a ’green car’. Don’t be put off by the negative reviews. If you can live with being a bit ’different’ you’ll get a lot of used car for your money.

The pug was bought as part exchange at the local dealer. Liked the quirky looks and ,with the diesel costs on the rise , the claimed 72.3 mpg was the straw that broke the camels back. After 3 months of ownership I’m still trying to get the mpg above the magical 70. When thrashed it returns 55 and when driven frugally 64mpg. As it is still under warranty the local Peugeot dealer has (with no quibble at all) replaced the matt black covering on the upper doors and the CD player as it skips when driving down slightly bumpy roads. The electric doors have so far been no trouble and the driving position for a 6ft 4 bloke ,comfy. I took it on a 450 mile drive last month and the seats are barely adequate as the zips for the changeable covers tend to dig into your butt. ABS is a godsend in such a short wheelbase car and never attempt to turn off the ESP as it will bite you. Having never had auto lights and windscreen wipers I can say that I can live with them but wouldn’t pay for the extras. Overall a nice above the average super mini but don’t expect electrifying performance as its too heavy!

Apparently it’s just been discontinued which is a shame because it’s a great little car now that the bugs have been worked out. The best part is the huge discounts on left over stock. I found a funny looking green one with blue interior reduced by 35%. It’s fully loaded and for that price I would only get a very cheap 107 with no extras. I get people staring all the time in amazement at my funny green thing and it’s really grown on me. I wish Peugeot would hang in there like smart did. The 1007 deserves to succeed, it just needs a bit more refinement and some time to find it’s feet. Ahead of the curve but just out of touch.

My brother bought the 1007 sport with 2 tronic transmissions because of the sliding doors. He is disabled and found it was easier to get in. Apart from the doors we both think the car is a nightmare especially the transmission which, because of the ’dead spots’, is downright dangerous. Performance is poor and fuel consumption far too high. Also there are too many blind spots. I’m not surprised that there are very few of these models on the roads. The last one I saw was broken down! The driver’s sliding door jammed one day fortunately whilst at the dealer being serviced. We have also had total transmission failure for several minutes.

The deadspots on auto box seem to crop up often. Best to feather the accelerator when it takes a breath for the next gear or pedal to the metal for best off the line. Most door problems are cured by the return switch at the back or cleaning the contacts. In winter just use a suitable rubber food on the seals. If you try to wind down a window in freezing weather it wont work same with the door. Rubber needs to be rubber not frozen mass. - Jack Roche from Isle of Wight

This is a wonderful little car and the sliding doors are far from gimmicky as they make getting the kids out of the back a lot easier in ever increasing tight parking spaces. It offers brilliant fuel economy and is very easy to drive. I think it’s very well priced and haven’t found anything to fault it so far.
