Insurance claim after collision with rental car

Answered by CarsGuide 2 Oct 2015

It sounds to me as if he hasn't taken out insurance when he rented the car, and as such isn't covered, and he is the person responsible for the collision. I would hand everything over to your insurance company and let them sort it out.

Peugeot 407 brakes

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Mar 2010

It's not unusual for discs to need replacing at that sort of  distance, particularly on European cars that tend to wear discs more  quickly than cars from other parts of the car-making world. Making a  claim against Peugeot is difficult, because brake pads and discs are  not covered by the warranty, they are considered consumables, so you  have to make a case for the wear you have experienced being  excessive. While it's very frustrating to have to pay to replace the  discs so early, there's no benchmark to say the wear is not within  the bounds of being normal.

Mass of problems

Answered by CarsGuide 12 Feb 2010

Dual-mass flywheels have been used for several years, particularly in more expensive models. As you say they are used to better smooth out the torque pulsations coming from the engine, and it has been very effective in doing that. They are only used on vehicles fitted with manual gearboxes, not automatics. It's not a common fault, so persist with Peugeot and try to convince them to pay at least part of the cost.

Right time for a good deal

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Nov 2007

YOU can save money by buying at particular times, but it isn't necessarily the same for all makes and models. If you were buying a Toyota, Ford or Holden the times you mention are best, but that doesn't apply to Peugeot. As a relatively small-volume make in Australia, I don't believe there is a particular time to buy a Peugeot, but I would look at the run-out phase before, or just after the introduction of a new model.

Risks with used cars

Answered by CarsGuide 3 Aug 2006

A SECOND-HAND car will be a better model and have more equipment than a new car for the same price, but you are buying a car that has done quite some mileage in the hands of someone you don't know. There are risks buying a used car because you don't how previous owners have treated it. If you're prepared to take them, buy a car with a known service history and have it thoroughly checked by a specialist in that brand.

Economy car

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Aug 2005

RENAULT doesn't market a diesel engine here, so rule that out. You could consider a VW Golf diesel. Both the Peugeot and VW diesels are well built, reliable and economical so that would probably be the best overall option.
