Hi everyone

Greetings from Sweden.
I got my 208 Active 1.6 eHDI Blue Lion 2 weeks ago, and it feels great. I googled around and found this forum, and it looks very interesting. I have a question that I'll enter in the correct area soon.

If you're interested in my previous Peugeot cars, they are:
1989 - 405 SRI, automatic shift, new, end milage 87000 miles
1991 - 405 SRI Break, automatic shift, new, end milage 130000 miles
1995 - 605 SV 3.0, manual shift, used at 25000 miles, end milage 200000 miles
1998 - 406, manual shift, new, end milage 265000 miles*
2004 - 406 HDI, manual shift, used at 55000, end milage 220000 miles
2008 - 308 HDI, MCP, new, end milage 205000 miles

Then my wife has had two 205's, one 405 (my old Break), one 306 Roland Garros, one 206 1.4, and now a 207 HDI.
My son has had two 205 GTI's, and now a 107.

Kind regards
Håkan

* One fun remark with my first 406, was that the milage display could not exceed 100000 km. There were a 0 in the beginning, but at 10000 km, the place of the 1 was displayed as a '. And still on 200000, 300000 and on 400000 km. I heard from my dealer a couple of mouths after the trade-in, that he got a phone call from a new owner. He was asking if there was need of a cam belt replacement. "No need yet", the dealer replied. "It was replaced at 360000 km". And there was a long silence in the phone. The new owner thought the milage was 125000 km, not 425000 km, becasue of the milage display of '25000 km. The car has had a couple of owners in between, and someone has removed all books, all labels, like the one indicating the date and milage of the cam belt replacement. So there were no indication of the milage of the car. The new owner was of course suprised, and realized that he was fooled. But he was still rather pleased with the smooth running of the car.

My plan is to limit the milage to 100000 km (62000 miles) on three years. That's about half of my previously mileages.
The reason is that now in Sweden we have an extended guarantee at three years, but limit milage of 100000 km. Two years is as before with no limit.

Sorry to hear all that about your car. Mine is a year old next week and has been suburb, no problems. My last car was a RCZ, in the dealers 18 times in 2 years.
