      A good second hand car choice but beware of poor fuel economy

      Several years ago I moved on from the Peugeot stable after driving two of their models from new (306 followed by 406). I was happy with both but felt that it was time to try pastures anew. My Mercedes C Class which was getting long in the tooth has had to go recently as repairs were getting quite expensive. As a planned interim measure, I went and got myself a five year old 2.0 Peugeot 407 S. This is in the spirit of going for something you know and kind of trust. I have now been driving the 407 a few weeks and I have to say I have been pleasantly surprised how much of an enjoyable drive it has been so far. The car is easy to manoeuvre, pleasantly quiet even on motorway cruise, comfortable and well spec'd. It is also quite easy on the eye. The 407 is no Merc by any means but it is pleasant and my fears of having to put up with a plodding motor have been proved to be completely unfounded. My one disappointment has been the fuel consumption which is at par with the Mercedes. With this being a significantly more recent model and a much lighter car (even though the engine is the same size), I expected a better fuel economy. Sadly that isn't the case and 30 mpg in the current fuel price climate isn't much fun. However, if you are looking for a car to tide you over a year or two, I would thoroughly recommend a second hand Peugeot 407.
