Peugeot Partner Tepee PARTNER TEPEE DIESEL ESTATE 2008 - 2015

3 star review

I have 3 real niggles, You really need to drive it to get anywhere, my Peugeot expert is better... at everything and it has done 1/4 million kilometers. So the Partner, rear suspension does not! wife and I it is OK, Put 3 kids in the back and it bottoms out. It is on a 5 year warranty. The cabin is such that after 10 minutes I stuck bits of carpet on engine bulk head and door as they were causing my knees grief! The seat for the driver is NOT comfortable, I have resorted to putting a chair squab on the seat to sit on as with the poor seat comfort and the crashing out suspension I have more comfort in my 1969 Land Rover!!!I have no option as I am tall and most smaller vehicles require me to cut a hole in the roof or stick my head out of the window, my next vehicle will probably be a restored Morris Minor. Would I buy another...NO If you get one negotiate a 5 year warranty. Oh also check tyre size, vehicles with 255 z 16 tyres only get about 25000 klms each at €140. Change wheels and tyres for 205 x 15 and fit truck tyres eg GT maxmiler and get about 85,000 to 100,000 klms for about €90. Just a stupid thing, I inadvertently put my trailer on the back and it had about 100kg lift, yes I know it was wrong but options I did not have. The suspension was now very good.

3 star review

2014 1.6 hdi model, low mileage. I have a sound which I thought was a loose exhaust. noticeable when accelerating up through the gears. Took it back to the dealers, a journey of about 15 miles on a hot day. By the time I got there this annoying noise had all but disappeared, and the car was more of a pleasure to drive. I was told it was not an exhaust problem but 'injector detonation noise' and is common on this type of engine. It will disappear when the engine is warmed up. I was further told that enhanced fuels...ie BP ultimate/Shell v power may reduce the 'problem'. Rather disappointed to be honest because the noise is annoying me ! I don't remember it from the test drive either .......mmmmm.......... car warmed up before I wonder?

4 star review

Hi, just got a new 2015 Peugeot Partner Premier only 1000 miles on the clock and gear box has a chatter when it`s ticking over, put your foot on the clutch and it goes way. When the guy came out to listen to it he told me it sounds like it might need a new gear box and they would be in touch. Next day I got a call from Peugeot saying not to worry they all make this noise

I have a 2014 Peugeot Partner Tepee, 1.6 hdi. Mine has the same noise especially noticeable when in a garage/enclosed space. I was told by Peugeot that this was 'normal'. However, I've never experienced a similar noise in nearly 40 years of car ownership. I remain sceptical. - from Essex

I have just bought a used 2011 tepee. it's taking me ten minutes to put 20 pounds worth of diesel in it as the pump keeps clicking off every few seconds. I think this is something to do with the air pressure back flowing up the pipe as I refill ,any way of fixing this?

I am guessing that you have the anti whatever flap just a little way down the neck you are possibly being too timid in sticking the spout down the hole, just make sure you stuff the pump nozzle all the way in! - Roger Mew from France

Peugeot Partner Tepee 2010

3 star review

3 weeks after purchasing my new taxi I noticed a rip in the rubber around the driver’s door. I did not notice it on delivery but I was not looking for anything like that. Peugeot say it is down to wear and tear after 3 weeks. The fuel gauge does not work properly, this is down to a 50 litre tank replacing the 60 litre tank. The people who did the conversion for Cab Direct say they don’t know how to rectify the problem. The springs had to be replaced as it was grounding out. Now the rear passenger window catch has dropped to bits, the metal pin has fallen off. There had been an on and off rattle for the last 4 days but me and my mate could not locate it. Now that the pin has dropped off the rattle has stopped, pity the window is hanging loose now, obviously it had been working - it’s way loose? Going to the local Peugeot dealer tomorrow, wonder what sh*te he comes out with this time? Taxi has just under 21000 miles on the clock and is 4 months old. I can’t see this Peugeot outlasting our last taxi, a Fiat Doblo which had 270,000 on when we traded it in to Cab Direct.

I have just got a WAV Tepee from constables. Surprise surprise my fuel gauge doesn’t work. I was parked at the supermarket yesterday and a guy knocked on my window to ask if I was having problems with my fuel gauge as his doesn’t work either. This is obviously a problem that has been around for some time, it should be sorted - Colin Bennett from Cheshire

I’ve just bought a WAV Tepee from Cab Direct. My fuel gauge works just fine. I have had no real problems with the car thus far, although it did throw a hissy fit last weekend when the lights and wipers worked on their own! I couldn’t even start it! I got a spare key and it all started working fine again! I average 46mpg and find it drives well for what is essentially a van with windows! I would say that Cab Direct need to up their game when it comes to customer care and satisfaction. One problem that winds me up is the air intake in the engine bay. It rattles like a pig! I tightened the bolt but after a week, it comes loose again. I have to admit that the interior plastics could be better quality, but like I said, it’s basically a van with windows! Also the doors do come in with a crash!! Maybe some kind of damping system on the door restraint would help! The WAV conversion is earning its keep and I have no issues to report with it. Some have complained that the early conversions included re-routing the brake lines etc and this brought its own problems, including brake failure (!) and the floor pan being weakened. Again, I’ve not had it long enough to notice too many issues. I do wish that the 12v ciggy lighter was permanently live and the radio also. I find that my dab adapter is hardly getting used, due to all the messing around with no permanent live! All my passengers have commented on how comfortable the car is, and how much leg room is available in the rear seats. My wheelchair fares like the way you are not stuck down the back, as in a minibus conversion! Overall, not a bad little car, but could be better in some areas just to make it a much more pleasant place to be for a cabbie! - Chris Hammond from Sussex

As stated to another user, take the car to another Peugeot dealer. You may well get a different response, AND the original dealer is then aware that you have gone elsewhere. - Roger Mew from France

Peugeot Partner Tepee 2010

3 star review

This has been converted to a WAV. Had this car a week done 150 miles, does drive very nice. Reverse gear judders like mad, thought this could be down to my driving style as I am used to driving vans. But no matter how I approach the reverse gear there is no change, seems to get worse the more time I am out in it. As this affects 1st gear, and notice a slight judder on the drive. Also noticing a squeaky suspension. I am thinking that I should contact the dealer to check this out this week.

Has your problem been sorted by the dealer on your car? We have experienced problems similar to yourself with first gear jumping out of gear but also we have had braking problems with both hand and foot brakes - Al S from England
