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.

Peugeot Partner Tepee PARTNER TEPEE DIESEL ESTATE 2008 - 2015

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

4 star review

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 2012

4 star review

We got our Tepee in May 2012 and we have been extremely happy with it. No problems like the other reviewers (yet), but for a change we have every confidence in the garage we got it from. We got it on Motability as I sometimes require a wheelchair for which there is ample room along with my Border Collie and two grand children. The drivers position means no dropping down into the seat as the level is hip height. It is an extremely comfortable ride and the power ratio is pitched just right (not too sluggish, but not a performance car either). There are however a couple of issues: The environmental settings are a pain! You can only have the car on ignition only for a few minutes before the whole vehicle shuts down and then you have to switch the engine on for about 10mins before you can use just the ignition again. So forget it if you want to sit in the car while your wife does some shopping and listen to the radio (if anyone knows how to turn this off I’d be grateful for the info.) The other thing is when I accelerate I can feel the front end go light and lose a certain amount of traction, which doesn’t bode well for the winter snow and ice.

Hi as to the light front end, have you got 255 x 16 tyres? These are a real pain. As for the radio, I am in the process of dealing with that on mine, it really is an ecological disaster. I am also a radio amateur and need to install a transmitter. I will "cure" both problems as i am a retired electrical engineer. I am guessing that a relay will have to be installed and a separate switch. - Roger Mew from France
