Hi Ladies and Gents.
I'm looking to buy a second hand 407sw.
At the minute I have seen a 57 plate 2ltr hdi and would appreciate any advice you guys could give. Common faults, things to look out for etc etc
Just a few things that seem to commonly fail, mostly gadgets:
Sunroof blinds can break, heater flaps, main display orange version, goes black when hot\heated, heard it was eventually fixed, might be ok on the 57 plate.
The connection to the cabin air blower (it has big thick wires, and then with a tiny flimsy white connection, under the glovebox) which can partly melt\corrode, can be easily bypassed.
I find it a fine car really, if you're willing to do some of the small jobs yourself. Eg garages can charge €1000-1500 to do the heater flaps, since they take out the dashboard, but you can cut holes and diy.
Lots of people seem to get antipollution faults, but a lot of the time cleaning the egr sorts it out.
It depends really.. you might not come across any of these issues. And they're quite nice when everything is working!

Hi all, I have a 407sw from 2008. The car was serviced recently and the mechanic replaced the front brake pads and discs. A week later the abs and esp starts flashing at me. I took it back to the mechanic and he said I needed a sensor changed and it'd be €200 to do it.
After some online...

I own an 07 plate 407 SW 2.0 136 HDi GT Auto.
Recently (last couple of months) it seems to have lost horse power. Acceleration feels slower overall, but sometimes when accelerating it seems to get to 30mph in 3rd then accelerate at a painful rate with my foot right down, with the revs stuck at...
