Hi, I'm currently planning to go and check out a 2001 307 1.4 petrol with only 58000 on the clock, for my daughter who needs a roomier car as she has a birthing event early next year...

My other daughter has had a few 306's and apart from one, they have been great cars, so I'm wondering if the 307 is any better or any worse than the 306?

Also, what is the cambelt replacement interval for this model, and are there any common issues I should look out for?

Any help gratefully received.

Thanks
Mark

This is a tough one and remember any responses you get are going to be other peoples subjective opinions.

I have a 306 & 307 and I could compare them for hours but in short I'd say:

The 307 is newer, feels newer and feels safer and is roomier.

However, Peugeot never fixed the electrical gremlins that plagued the 306 and then chose to dump twice as many electrics into the 307 and there's your first area of possible problems along with the woeful front suspension.

Try and get one without any known faults. Make sure all warning lights come on with the ignition and go off once started.

And factor in a cam belt change. It's 11 years old regardless of the mileage.
