Default Thinking of getting a DS4 2.0 HDI

As the trusty 307 SW is about to roll over 250K miles this week. I am thinking of a suitable replacement.

I have had a look around at various PSA cars and I like the look of the DS4.

Anyone have any experience of these I like the look of something like the 2.0 HDI (i like the extra torque and reliability of the 2.0 over the 1.6 and would not go near a e-hdi at present)

I like the idea of the Automatic but happy to stick with Manual if the auto is as fragile as the older units.

I could also be persuaded to down size and look at the DS3 as well as i cannot find a newer Peugeot that i like. The older 308 (all that i can afford) looks horrible and 207/208 maybe a bit too small

Open to suggestions

Hello, I have just switched from a DS4 DSport 2.0 HDI. I had the DS4 for 2 and a half years and did approximately 75,000 miles in it during that time. The car does have very good handling, but does have stiff suspension. Combined with the low profile tyres this does lead to quite a bumpy ride if you are on anything other than a perfectly smooth road.

The car was vary reliable, the only issue I had was a small electrical issue with the wing mirror when you put the car in reverse, this was fixed by the dealer under warranty. At 87,000 miles it hadn't even needed a break pad replacing.

If you want something that is comfortable to sit on the motorway cruising, then this is not the right car. The DS4 requires you to put a bit more effort into driving it to get the most out of it, and if you do it is a lot of fun to drive.
