Noticed a 307 HDI at a local garage, been thinking about changing her car for a bit, ideal motor.
Dropped in there yesterday afternoon seeing as it was cold.

Had a brief chat with the salesman, gave me the keys.
Generally looked half decent.
Seeing as its been there sat, and freezing cold, gave it a couple of heats, then tried starting.
Cranked over fine, but no starting.
Tried a couple of times, still no joy.

Went back in, mentioned it, he came out and tried, said it must be the battery, as its been sat there for a week.

Yeah, right. And off I went :lol:
Battery :lol: :lol:

Thats a man that really knows about cars, i'd have every confidence in buying a motor from there :? NOT

Why isn't the number 11 pronounced onety one?

I got a 307Hdi (1.6 "Sport"). Love it to bits......motorway miles gave me around 54mpg, couldn't ask for more.

Recently started giving me a bit of grief, now has dropped to 40/39mpg over motorways. Common fault apparently.

Been good up to now, hopefully will be again once I get chance to sort it out!

Watch out for tyre sizes though. I got the 17" wheels on mine and tyres burn a mega pound sized hole in your pocket.


What do we want?
The cure for dyslexia!
When do we want it??
