Pug 207 issue

on Wed Sep 06, 2017 7:45 pm
Temperature gauges not working.

Any idea whether it's more likely to be a sensor, or the water pump, or something else, and likely costs ??

gauges? plural? as in oil as well?

if just the temp, try pulling the lead see if it goes to max, sensor fault.

Yeah, oil and water gauges not working ....

Been offered a 2008 1.4 Pug 207 92k miles for £800

Only issue is the above.

Trying to work out whether it's a good buy, and whether it might be a good cheap car, and free me up to change the BM for something different.

Google suggests there was a recall for the temp sensor and it's a pretty common fault

It seems good value at that price, compared to others around, and I'm guessing it's only one thing causing all the gauges to not work. Smile However, and I hate being negative, but have you ever driven a 207 before? They're not great to drive, albeit better than the 206. I'd be inclined to give it a good, long drive and be sure you like it before parting with your cash, spending more getting it fixed, then realising it's not what you're after and then having to sell it for something else, possibly losing money overall.

I've told the guy no today.

The temperature thing just makes it too risky.

I took it for a reasonable drive, and it wasn't too bad - certainly, ignoring the temp. issue, its a good car for £800 or so.

However, I looked at the stats - how is it possible in this day and age for a small 1.4 engine car to do 0-60 in over 15 seconds ??

I pretty much thought most run of the mill cars (with a few exceptions) could do 60mph in less than 10 seconds these days - and certainly 12 seconds.

I can get to 100 in 9.7 seconds. Not in the Smart though......
