Peugeot 4007 2009

Driven this car for three years and I’m very happy. I have used it for towing a two ton boat. I have used all 7 seats occasionally, for short runs, but it’s not really very comfortable in back seats.

Overall I’m very satisfied with the car.

The 4007 is a beautiful car. but. at 38k my clutch has gone, my flywheel too. It cost me 1,200 Euros! I’m from Romania. The car is still in warranty and the Peugeot dealer told me that it is not a warranty problem.

The clutch only has a warranty up to 20k. If it is a manufacture problem then why they are standing so hard on her feet? Any ideas? Please contact me

At 39k mile my clutch also failed on my 4007. Peugeot would not help, citing the clutch as a wearing part with a limited 20k mile warranty. They also wanted to replace the variable mass flywheel. I would not let them which brought the bill down from over £1,300 to about £450.

Car now has 71k miles and no flywheel or clutch issues to report again. Car has had much warranty work additional to this to include a new turbo (valve sticking), new catalyst fluid bag (leaking), new top joint on from suspenion, respray wheels (bubbling paint). A nice car to drive but fragile. Please note 4007, Citreon C Crosser and Mitsubishi Outlander are all the same car – Andy Mayland from England

Update on my last report – got to 72,000 miles and replaced clutch now slipping too. I have nursed it, driving carefully to avoid peak torque and have got 75,000 miles with minor degradation but will have to replace it soon. It would seem the clutch on the 2.2 HDI variants will only last about 30 to 40k miles at best. Rubbish really for a car I love to drive so much and thought I would eventually be able to use as a towcar too.

Sadly not. My advice to anyone is to avoid the Outlander variants in all their forms (i.e. Outlander, 4007 and C-Crosser). Also beware the same engine may carry the same clutch pack into other vehicles such as the 407, Mondeo, Freelander.

If you have a 4007, C-Crosser or Outlander 2.2 Diesel my advice is sell it now before you face bills up to £1,300+ for a new clutch that will only go for 2 or 3 more service periods. Everyone I talk to is having the same issue. The engineering behind clutch life is 100 years old, the transmission engineering on this Mitsubishi / PSA JV vehicle suprises me in this century.

Also the lack of support by Peugeot UK is stunning. They need to admit the fault, engineer it out and call the cars in for replacement clutch packs (in or out of warranty) if they want to get any kind of reputation back – Andy Mayland from Wiltshire
