Default Buying a secondhand 207 - what to look for?

Hello All!

I've seen a Peugeot 207 'Allure' for sale at my local garage and I'm quite tempted by it. Haven't had a proper look yet though and I'm just wondering if there are any 'typical' problems I should look out for? e.g. leaks, cold starting issues, general reliability, bodywork problems etc. This would be my first Peugeot so I'm not familiar with the brand really.

Model is a 2012 'Allure' 1.6 petrol with about 55k miles on the clock. Priced at 3400 if that seems reasonable.

The main problems we see on here for the 207 is water ingress to the wiring loom / ECU, and the rear light cluster wiring burning out.

On the later ones there was an issue with steering rack failures (owners were having them replaced FOC but sometimes only after a bit of a struggle). You could ask if there's any record of it being replaced in the last 6 years.

I thought cam chain issues and fuse box water ingress had been knocked on the head post-facelift (e.g. post 2010). Have to admit that's a good price for an Allure with 55K.
