The Peugeot 207 CC is a variation of the Peugeot 207. Launched in 2007, it is among the most popular of Peugeot models along with the Peugeot 207 GTI and Peugeot 207 HDI. The CC in its name stands for convertible coupe and it is an upgrade of the 206 CC model. The Peugeot 206 CC had some minor issues with the roof; however Peugeot managed to solve them on this new model. Before buying Peugeot 207 CC there are couple of things that are worth bearing in mind.
Choosing what engine you want for your car is always a tough choice and should be given careful consideration. The Peugeot 207 CC came in two engine versions, petrol and diesel. They are both 1.6 litre engines. When it comes to the price, if you drive your car less than 11 thousand miles a year you should consider buying a petrol engine, since it is a cheaper option for you.
The Peugeot 207 CC needs to be maintained properly and after some time certain things should be renewed. Servicing should be done every two years. Brake fluid should be renewed every two years but the coolant needs to be renewed every four years. These expenses are not enormous but should always be taken into an account.
How much has car been through is a very important factor when buying a car. If you are buying a new Peugeot 207 CC this is not at issue but when buying a used car it is a very important factor. A car with less than 20,000 miles per year of use should be in pretty good if its servicing has been kept up.
New or Used
When it comes to buying a car, small savings can make a big difference. A new Peugeot 207 CC is obviously much more expensive than a used one. Butt buying a used car that is not in great shape can cost more in the long run. Do not forget to take the care on a test drive, especially if you are buying a used car, so that you can feel the drive and see if it really suits you in a way that is supposed to.
Bringing a Helper
All in all, if you have decided to buy a used car you should consider bringing a wingman. Having someone to compare notes with can help you keep your distance and not get so caught up in your potential purchase that you ignore or skip over important signs that you should pass on a particular car. If you can, bring a person with adequate car knowledge and experience.
