The Peugeot 407 is one of the most prominent representatives of the middle class. This is not only to his comparatively rare appearance in the street scene, but especially on the polarizing shark’s mouth design. Who may place him in a favorable, well-equipped and safe cars.
Can access it without hesitation in the 2004-2011 French-built but not – especially not with low mileage. We’ll tell you what to watch it.
Body and interior:
Design is a matter of taste. The shark’s mouth wide open, the 407 and his large almond-shaped headlamps are certainly not for everyone. The elegant, coupe-like silhouette even more likely to find friends – but it limits the space available in an interior.
This also applies to the SW-called cluster, which is more mobile lifestyle as a loadmaster. The third body style, it was a coupe , which affects the design of the most consistent. For all scenarios is: workmanship and interior ambiance classes are better than you had previously used by Peugeot.
France and diesel – that just fits together for decades. Most popular engine in cars and now accordingly to the used market is cultivated 136 hp (from 2009: 140 bhp) 2.0-liter diesel engine. The engine is economical driving performance perfectly adequate and the particle filter – as in all other diesels – has always been standard equipment on board.
For the coupe, this engine was not offered, there must be stronger, but also significantly thirstier 2.0-liter diesel with 163 hp and the six-cylinder petrol engine with 211 hp (from 2009: 241 hp) will be selected.
The positive pre – rust on bearing parts 407 plays no role. Therefore, the front shows a lot of weaknesses too often. Who listens to the test drive rattling, should be prepared for a hefty garage bill. Besides lined ball joints and tie rods and ball joints are designed to be weak. The problems usually occur on already well under 100,000 miles.
Be careful with vehicles with low mileage – older models are the better choice. There are either already fixed the error (can show invoice) or not at all may occur. Who by the way, 407 awaits the typical French character litter will be disappointed. The suspension is more taut, and the steering feeling low but not too sporty driving style invites.
