    Default 2008 407 HDi Anything to watch out for?

    I am considering jumping back into Peugeot ownership and am looking at a 2008 407 HDi. Has heated leather seats, so presumably the Executive model.

    185,00KMs, recently had timing belt changed and DPF a year or two back.

    I'll browse around but am interested if anyone has insight into what I should look for to tell if it is a good buy.

    Obviously will check the usual suspects for any car of that age. I know the AL4 is a contentious subject but is the six speed auto considered good/bad/indifferent?

    I assume itís the Aisin auto which should be pretty reliable if it drives ok now.
    If itís been serviced by-the-book and drives well it probably comes down to Ďconditioní itís in.

    Check the dash display for radio etc. at the upper part of the central dash area, if these go there is a problem.

    Decided to go for it, subject to the current owner getting a RWC (it was $4700 inc 8 months rego and RWC). About time I got another pug.

    Car is a bit ordinary cosmetically - plenty scrapes around base of front bumper, few shopping cart dings and scratches at drivers door consistent with someone wearing rings. 'Chrome' surround at gearchange has de-laminated from the plastic in places.

    Drives fine though and with a new cam belt, LCD multifunction display and DPF recently, along with all usual service items taken care of, I am hopeful it will run for a few years yet.

    No doubt there will be a few more threads relating to issues once I start driving it. Am hoping my Lexia cable set will work with this one.

    Apparently replaced during their ownership. Looking good. Thanks for the tip
