The 307 cc was designed to revitalise the market for Peugeot, taking tips from the popular 206 cc, with its folding metal and glass roof, and the successful 306 convertible. Initial models received negative reviews with regards to quality and reliability, although a 2005 facelift saw many of these issues resolved. For this reason many post-2005 models of the 307 cc are still popular in the used car market and can hold their value relatively well.
Peugeot 307 cc (2001 - 2009)
The 307 made use of a reworked 306 platform that can also be seen on the Citroen Xsara and the older Citroen ZX. This built upon the success of previous models, although the 307 cc was larger than its predecessor in every way.
The 307 cc was known for its fun drive quality, although many felt that it was more of a cruiser than a racer. The added weight of its folding glass and metal roof affects the performance and handling of the vehicle, and as with all cars of its type does impact the amount of boot space when the roof is down. The space in the 307 cc is not unreasonable, however, with four usable seats - unlike some of its competitors in the coupe cabriolet market.
After the 2005 facelift on the 307 range a new 2.0 litre diesel engine was added to the lineup, to sit alongside the existing 1.6 litre and 2.0 litre petrol options. This diesel engine became the most popular due to its ability to pull this relatively heavy car efficiently. The 1.6 litre automatic variant was often slated as one to avoid.
According to many reviews the 307 suffered notoriously from below average build quality and reliability. What Car? reviews show that the 307 cc shares these reliability issues, including lots of little electrical faults and complaints regarding the folding roof mechanism. They also state that there have been some alarming recalls on the 307, including potentially serious fires in the engine bay, so it is important to make sure that all recall works have been completed on your 307 cc. Fortunately for potential buyers, in 2005 Peugeot gave the vehicles a facelift and reliability increased, making it a much more popular model and increasing consumer happiness when it came to the 307 cc.
