The convertible Peugeot 307 CC is a slickly put together and well equipped package. It is a top seller in its class despite being more expensive than many of its rivals. The folding hard top works well and despite Peugeot’s early reliability problems it now seems problem free. It does add weight to the car but most owners prefer the convenience it brings. Compared to the smaller 206 and 207 CCs the cabin is much more roomy and the back seats can be used by adults.
The CC’s ride and handling are good on the open road and though sportier than the 307 hatch, is less impressive in the twisty stuff. But then this is a car for crusing in the sunshine rather than for breaking track records. Like many hardtop convertibles it has love-it or hate-it styling and very generous levels of equipment. The Peugeot 307 CC was replaced in May 2009 by the new Peugeot 308 CC.
I have recently bought a 07 plate for just over £6,000 in 2011. It is a good-looker with the roof down and the leather seating is super. It is not a sports car! So please don’t think of it in that manner. It is sluggish in the normal twists and bends of driving but for cruising on the free road or motorways, it is excellent. I get almost 35 MPG combined with 1.6 petrol, so not sure how the dealers get 37 MPG as I was very limited with the use of Air Con etc. The MP 3 player and 5 CD are useful as well as the automatics of lights, and wipers. I am happy with the purchase should be fun to drive in the summer.
I’ve just bought one of these 307’s and find it pretty-well what I hoped. I have as my main car a decent Jag so I’ll not be frustrated by lack of performance!. The Peugeot is a nice looking car, comfortable and satisfying if all one wants is an easy drive with the top down on sunny days. That is all I looked for in a convertible – press the button and presto – lots of infra red and ultra violet rays to absorb. Although a Violet I once knew did offer something a little different……..
I have a 2004 307 2 ltr Convertible.
The Car stopped and Activated The Crash Bars, as if I had been in an accident. And the Roof is Down, and wont come back up, and will not start again. They told me IF I disconected the Crash bars, and took them off it will work again
Please tell me what to do and what is wrong,
Many Thanks Allan ?????

Did you ever get it back on the road?
my partner and myself have a Peugeot each..We both have had so many problems with almost everything on the cars.. Except the motors,They run well and stick to the road great..But the roof got stuck half way up, Things fall apart so easy, the windows and door locks play up, it’s very hard to see out the back window…But this is only because we had brought them from a second hand car dealer that totally ripped us off…I love my car, just wish it wasn’t always having something stop working on a weekly base…307 auto 2004 model/ 307manual 2006 model…Heads are always turning while driving, Nice looking cars
