Update - 4 months in and it's proving to be fast for a car of its type, grunty and flexible, consistently returns low 40s MPG, handles well and is supremely spacious and comfortable. Cthe 4WD system is simple but well executed and you really can feel it dig in when driving in poor conditions.
Downsides - the ride is only just on the acceptable side of firm, it feels flimsy inside, it sounds rough and the genuine polystyrene(!) Mitsubishi sound proofing under the carpet is a nasty and ineffective joke, the cruise works well but is jerky when engaging/releasing and it's uglier that Jade Goody in a bikini.
Summary - very capable and worthy, just lacking the final polish needed to turn it from a good car into a great one. 7.5/10. We're happy.
1st service been and gone. No problems at all. Engine loosening up nicely and it's now giving some mighty mid range stomp - hardly surprising as its got more torque to weight than an X5 3.0D, and that was before the remap...
Fuel consumption hovering around the 40 mark. I get it around the high 30's, but Woman - who drives it most of the time - never fails to better 42 average to a tank.
Front tyres down to about 6mm, no measurable wear on the rears. It really is quite kind to its tyres.
Bland interior is still pithing me off, but can't grumble about the kit levels. Will be soon investing in an integrated DAB module so I can get my Planet Rock fix.
I must admit to being quite looking forward to a nasty wet and snowy winter
The 4007 seems to be a good machine as above. Problems are few and far between. Had one on the other day for a particle filter additive refill at 216k kms. No other problems other than that, which is a serviceable item
I can't help but say the Citroen C-Crosser is the nicer looking out of all three ie Outlander and 4007.
Citroen have put nicer exterior kit on which it needs.
The outlander is worst of all, with its nasty VW tdi engine which is massively underpowered. Although Mitsubishi has its own MIVEC diesel in them now. It can't compare to be being the same vehicle as the Peugeot/Citroen versions.
Scuttle panel snorkel fitted, Raises the intake, yet is invisible with the bonnet down. Standard wading depth is 62cm, and I dont think this'll give it a lot more but it gives me the reassurance that the engine isn't about to ingest the bow-wave when fording.
Generally speaking i'm still hugely impressed with the 4007. Tough, reliable, comfy, just such an indomitable character. Brilliant family car that shrugs off poor weather and conditions that would've had my old 3008 wobbling for the hedgerow. Only hint of trouble is a slight brake judder coming on, so it may need new discs (and pads, natch) before long. Looking at parts prices and they're so cheap compared to stuff for the 3008, so if it gets much worse I'll have no qualms about simply replacing the lot.
If the ass was the same as on a 407 SW, just in a larger size ratio course, it was the perfect exterior.
I give you is a little bit poor made inside.
The engine can not complain about it.
If peugeot would take to update it so that it would be perfect if it had the same appearance as the 407 SW in a scaled-up ratio, external and internal PERFECT
Yeah, I farted out doors this morning and 2 hours later the snow has all but vanished. But still feeling smug about how well the 4007 sailed uphill past a row of stranded traffic on one of the rural roads into the village. Chug chug chug just off the boost, and up it went. Unlike the Transit that tried to be clever as follow me and slithered to a halt about 1/3 of the way up, leaving both sides blocked.
I'm so impressed I've taken to describing 2wd cars as 'normies'.
Hurtling towards 30k miles now. New brakes tomorrow. I could probably 're-use the front discs butchered a hint of judder where they've worn close to min thickness, and I can't see the point in letting nacked discs munch New pads away double quick time.
EGR blanks off today. No wally lights... yet! We'll see how this goes.
It's proven to be quick, spacious, luxurious, reasonably economical, utterly reliable and completely unstoppable by anything the UK weather can throw at it from floods to snow. Best kept Pug secret of modern times.
If you're after a big pug then forget the 407 and 607 and get one of these beasts.
Hi. Just bout 4007 3 months ago. Yesterday whilst reversing a small garden trailer the engine suddenly stopped. Error messages came up on dash.
Engine overheating, 4x4 requires attention, headlamp not level. When I turn the key the glow plug light remains on, I can hear a click but car won’t...
I recently had hydrogen injection on my 4007 to help with EGR faults and general rough running and flat spots. Seems to have worked well and has restored power and smoothness.He mentioned about fitting a catch-can to help prevent further issues.I purchased a Ryco unit but then discovered theres...
Hi there. I’m new here, have 2x 4007 SV top spec 2012 4007s here in Australia, great vehicles, never had any grief. One has 90,000kms the other 120,000kms. The 4007 with the fewer k’s has developed an irregular knock or dead-sounding clunk between 2nd and 3rd gear. I can go weeks without it...
Recently I have been chasing a problem with my 4007 2011 2.2 hdi LHD diesel.
P2111 and P0488 Throttle actuator stuck open and EGR throttle position.
Initially I removed the EGR return hose (which is the braided tube from the exhaust to the input manifold) this was pretty dirty half clogged...
