Default Thinking of buying 407 2.7 HDi Coupe

Hi, I've had a 406 Coupe for the past 8 years and it's now time to change it. I'm considerring a 2009 407 2.7 HDi Coupe Sport. I know nothing about these cars other than what I've read on-line. Obviously with all that electrical kit on a car there is the potential for faults, which I think you have to accept with most modern cars.

I tend to do all the mechanical repairs and servicing myself, but leave the specialist work to independant specialists.

What's the low down on these vehicles???? Can you get hold of a workshop manual. Are they reliable cars? They are remarkably good value these days, is there a warning there?

Regards Ian

My name is Iain B
I like the coupes, I did consider one before I getting my second saloon.
Struggled to find a 2.0 hdi though, as afaik the road tax on the 2.7 is ludicrous is it not?
Plus, my new saloon is a GT multimedia, so when it came up I grabbed it.
I think unless you buy a complete pig, 407s are no less reliable than
anything else. Unless you're a rough sod, then something is bound to break
I think a 407 offers a good car for not a lot of cash at certain age. Mine is an 08 post face lift, I bought it on 32k and paid 4300 including a years road tax. From a main Peugeot dealer.

After doing a bit of sleuthing, the 2.7 hdi road tax is..
ready..
475.00 PA. I hope you knew that already!
Jesus, that's as much as my insurance, road tax and a month or so of diesel.

Yeh I know the road tax is a bit of a sod on these cars, the later 3.0lt hdi is in a lower tax bracket, but these later models seem to be much more difficult to find.

The 2.7 HDi I'm looking at is a 2009 model on a 58 plate, 35k on the clock, 2 owners and in mint condition from an independant dealer for 7,500.

I'll give it a test ride and if all is OK I'll probably go for it.

Metalic Silver and Black leather. In the photo's the inside looks in really good condition, very little wear on the drivers seat, etc... a closer look tomorrow in the flesh is called for.

It would be nice to know what to look out for on these models, I suspect try all the electrics frist. Regards Ian

With regards the engine, I've no idea.
With regards the tip auto (which I'm sure all the 2.7s had), I've no idea.
With regards other stuff.
ABS sensors can make the ABS light go mental. Easy to change, but you need it diagnosing to tell you which sensor it is.
Brake switch can fail meaning the cruise won't work and your brake lights stay on. Again, easy to change.
Bulb failure warnings, this could mean a failed rear cluster earth. There is an easy fix for this, it's on here..somewhere.
I'm assuming it will have a FAP, so obviously that will need taking care of. They are now a testable MOT item so you can't go ripping them off, so the car will need using correctly and not tootling about on short trips not getting warm.
Notes on mine, which has leather too (although mine is wine red), the seatbelt clip squeeks on the leather which is annoying. But the bum warmers are excellent

I ran a 407 SW GT with the 2.7 litre V6 engine for a couple of years. The only problem I had was a nearside front wheel bearing that failed while I was driving in the south of France. It made it home with a progressively louder rumbling. That engine was awesome. The torque just kept coming. It was relentless if you held you foot down. I saw an indicated 145 m.p.h. an on autobahn near Stuttgart and I only backed off then because a Fiat pulled out in front of me. The road tax in the UK was just a touch excessive and it wasn't the most economical car, either averaging low 30's.
If you can put up with the running costs, I guarantee it'll give you the biggest grin you've had on your face for years!!

I've bought it as it was quite stunning in the flesh, originally owned by a Peugeot manager, every extra fitted, mint condition inside and out, the only issue was a slight de-lamination on the driver window. 600 from the main stealer, got 250 off the price, will live with it as it's barely noticeable and I'll look for a secondhand replacement.

Picking it up on Friday. Thanks for the replies. Ian

After being out the Peugeot fold for a while, I too am considering another 407, but this time the GT coupe. It would be the HDi.

I guess the 400+ tax is because they are twin turbo?

Seem to be a fair bit of kit for the money, Iain B's car seems to be very good price froma main dealer!

What's the GT multimedia? I wasn't too keen on the Nav in the 407 I had and found the phone sim card GSM thing to be useless!
