Hi Patrick,

It’s a bit of a downer, I’m afraid. The 307 was never Peugeot’s finest hour,and suffered from build quality that, if not quite poor, was certainly not the best. The SW is the best version, with lots of space and the option of seven seats, and if you get the 1.6 HDI diesel engine it’s a pretty reliable lump, but expect electrical faults as you go along. Buy it cheap and run it into the ground, would be our advice.
