    Default Peugoet wagons

    Hi folks, wanting to purchase a larger sized wagon, thinking up to $10,000.00. Just wondering what model I should be looking for, my local pug mechanics suggested a 407? Ant suggestions? Thanks Mark

    Some cracking cars around in that area.

    Just as a quick sample - and I have no relationship to the seller - I turned up the following example on carsales

    https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/d...15148390/?Cr=3

    Wagon, NSW (dealer with Oz wide shipping), under $10K, diesel and only 160K km's for $8900

    Preferences are to stay away from the earlier 4 speed auto models. Diesel V6 is grunty but be prepared for replacement of the thermostat housing if it's leaking. Diesel 2.0 with 6 speed auto is a safe bet.

    Cheers

    I'm not sure how much they are now, but it may be worth stretching to a 508 wagon if possible.

    For a second hand 407 or 508, make it a 2.0 HDI diesel with the 6 speed Japanese auto. These perform extremely well and will give the fewest issues in maintenance and repairs. There are a couple of versions of the 2 litre engine that you will come across, the DW10B (letters RHR in the VIN) and the DW10C (letters RHH in the VIN). The later one has some more oomph.

    Make certain that the diesel has had correct servicing, and that the correct lube oil was used. Oil spec is critical with turbo diesels equipped with particle filters. About 160,000 km a catalyst replacement is needed, and price the car accordingly if it wasn't done.

    The car is rather heavy for the 407 four cyl petrol engines. Don't even look at a 4 speed auto in a 407.

    That's not technically correct. With our 308 HDi RHR currently on 200K km's I ran a test through Diagbox which reported the catalyst had approx 160K km's remaining in it's life.

    Different cars may vary but it's certainly not a rule nor a requirement. It's based on wear and tear and isn't a service / scheduled replacement item.

    You have done very well. It is actually injected into the fuel tank at every fuel refill, so the rate of use varies with fuel consumption. The larger cars use more fuel.

    There is a service item listed in the handbook - check additive tank level - each 80,000 km. The filter should be checked every 140,000 km.

    My bad - after a quick read I had thought you were referring to the DPF itself. Of course the Eolys 176 (or Eolys 42 or Powerflex ) additive is the 'catalyst' - which I had topped up previously at the 160K km mark - car now at 200K km's and DPF functioning perfectly. The kit was about $300 from memory.

    Recently bought a cheap 207 wagon from Emerald Hill Wholesale in Melb. They buy a few pugs, so worth a look. Their cheapies are sold unregistered. (Drive home with a 5 day permit @ about $55) I got a cover note before I left home for insurance.
    I boght my car because it had a full service history. Needed some work, but worth it (including the service for 180K jms)

    That's funny, my previous car, the Pug 307 wagon, was sold off through the same place. I traded it in Geelong on a new Golf. Emerald Hill Wholesale bought it and sold it on for only a bit more than I got for it as a trade in. I spoke to them about it, they said it looked well cared for and felt it was their sort of car. I spoke to its new owners and I am happy it has gone to a good home.
