    Default Mechanic-N.S.W.

    Hi-Got a 'rello' who ended up with a 407 HDI a few years ago-Could not believe how much better it was [and cheaper] that his long list of Statesman's.

    Car was purchased at the Pug. dealer in Newcastle BUT unfortunately has been taking it to the Dealer in Port Macquarie as it is closer [much] to home.


    Not happy with having to spend [probably] near 10 grand & only done round 100,000 k's -and I am sure we would all agree -I thought some of the 'clan' could give some heads up so I could tell him whereto go-In a nice sort of way-obviously.

    The Pug resides with his owners @ South West Rocks.

    Any info duly appreciated.

    Timing belts aren't that bad. Which engine, the 2.0 4 cyl or the 2.7 6 cyl? It's too soon for Eolys, so what is that price for?

    I have no idea of the workshop's reputation, but there was a Cit dealer in Coffs who would be familiar with these engines, and although they no longer sell new Citroens, they are still an authorized service and parts place. See the Citroen website. Anyway it's much the same distance as Port.

    There are other Pug mechanics, not dealers, who get a good remark or two from Froggers around the lower Hunter, such as Cessnock, but that's a fair hike away.

    Hi pekay49, Coffs is my town and Peugeot is my brand - currently have a 405, a 406 and 407 all in diesel registered. Blewett's the Ford dealer may have recently given Citroen away. There are 3 ex-Peug mechanics in business locally I would recommend and a third lad that is quite exceptional. If anyone wants more info PM me with contact details and I'll ring you back.
    I, also, would like to learn about this $10,000 issue / deal.
