Nine years have been passed since i bought my Peugeot 307, and i remember very clear the days i was searching for the right one.
The first car i checked was a Daewoo Lanos. The package was a sport edition of the car in a good price. But i said to myself first to make a research, and then to decide.
So i moved to Renault Clio.
I understood the difference between the two cars, only a minute after i was inside the Renault. The quality of everything in this car was a scale above Daewoo and immediately decide that i must concern my research in Europe. Of course there were great cars from the east like Honda, but it was not for my pocket.
The third one was the Peugeot. There was the 206 and the brand new 307.
First i was thinking about 206, cause my money wasn't enough for the 307, but i thought let's take a look... Nothing to lose.
Well that was it. When i stepped inside i fell in love with the car. The quality was similar to the Renault, but this one was a brand new model, with much bigger rooms, six airbags, music controls on the wheel, much better outside appearance from the two other cars, but also more expensive!
So i found what i wanted, but my money wasn't enough. But In the end after deep thoughts and financial help, i decide to buy the car that i wanted.
And you know what. I made the right choice. Because after nine years compared to other cars in this category, it is still beautiful outside like a new model, and the package that was offering for standard nine years ago it is still very good and for today's standards.
My 307 mechanically hadn't no problems except the natural waste, and the driving behavior of the car it is just fine.
The only thing i don't like it is the horsepower! Because 307 is heavy on the road for 75 horses. But of course back then it was very difficult for me to buy the better version.
Later Peugeot offered new packages with more horsepower and lifting for the car. So everyone who wants to buy a used 307 can find more choices than me...
Summary: After nine years on the road it is a very competitive car inside and outside!!!
