  5. Hi all this is my first post ever so please bear with me, On the 26th September we bought a diesel peugeot 307 glx 02 plate at a dealer 50 miles from us The car looked good,the salesman had told us the car was in excellent condition and been inspected by them, he said it also came with a 3 month comprehensive warranty covering everything apart brake pads, light bulbs,and exhaust.
