Peugeot 407 Diesel Problems

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.

Economy car

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.
