The 207 was voted most reliable small car in europe not so long ago. I'd have one in the morning. They are a good car. Small problems only and no more troublesome than any other manufacturers.Just look at the problems on this site. My wife has a 207 and has had the very common abs ecu problem at 24K miles (nearly £600 to fix) and now has the engine oil leak problem. It's 56 reg and only done 34K miles.
I wouldn't advise anyone to buy a 207 after our experience.
