Default 207 Cambelt issues

The cambelt has just gone for the second time on my 2007 207. This first time was at 37k miles and it was under warranty. It has now done 110k, been fully maintained and serviced and now has gone again.

I have seen elsewhere that the 207 has a bit of a reputation for cambelt issues at low mileage.

Has anyone else had these problems and did they approach Peugeot for assistance?

Thanks

Your replacement belt would be due to be replaced again in my opinion I never leave these more than 60 thousand due to the reputation you already mentioned

Who has been carrying out the servicing?

Which engine is fitted to your 207?

70k may be a touch low but not ridiculous especially if a lot of stop start or short journeys, as above what engine. Not really sure that any of the belted engines have any sort of reputation for going too early. Chain driven yes, not the belt driven

Is that a question or did you just feel the need to say something

No honestly. I have recently bought the car 168k on it and have no idea if belt has been changed recently or not
