Hi guys and guyesses, I'm Jimbo, I've joined the forum to research my possible next purchase, an RCZ HDi. 😀

I've always admired it for it's aesthetic appeal and now I'm at the point where it's approaching trade in time for my Mercedes E350 Coupé and I'd like to know more about the RCZ, so, no doubt, I will be annoying you all with my questions :rolleyes: until I make up my mind and do the deed, i.e. and purchase one, or, exit stage left and never bother you all again.

I'm looking forward to chatting and finding out more, bye for now! ;)

I have got two Hdi RCZs in my household and so happy 😊 with them as they have a lot of torque, and when I was looking for my RCZ was told that the Hdi engines are bullet proof and very reliable so happy hunting.....

G'day Verminator, thanks for the welcome.

The last Peugeot I had was a 309GTi back in the nineties great engines and handling, even back then but, I had a lot of trouble with the electrics and water ingress, so much so, it made me rather wary, tbh I've stuck with Japanese and German since, however the RCZ is such a beautiful looking car I'm prepared to take another chance, particularly since Peugeot have, in many experts opinion, come on in leaps and bounds in the reliability stakes.

I thought that the best thing to do was join the owners forum and get the facts from the peole who live with the cars on a daily basis.
I've been doing a fair bit of reading on the forum which was a bit of an eye opener until I realised that most folk are on these forums looking to solve their car problems, the ones like yourself seem to be a little more rare however, it seems if I get a car which has a low milage, full service history and I look after it properly I shouldn't have to much to worry about.
Here's hoping anyway.

Regards, Jimbo. :)

7 years on from buying mine, still loving it, still reliable, still the best looking car under £100k on the road.

I also had a 309 and later a 405. I loved both of those, although the 309 had similar issues to yours, & the 405 went through wheel bearings faster than my Z goes through front tyres 😱

Yours looks really nice in the red.

I've just bought my 3rd RCZ , the previous 2 I bought new unfortunately they've stopped making them so the new one is no newer than the car I sold in 2016.
I've had one major fault with the 2011 car when it was fairly new ,an issue with the valves which was quite a costly repair but Peugeot picked up the bill as a warranty claim. Other than that no issues in 5 years of ownership. Hoping the new car proves to be reliable even though its 5 years old.

Well done on staying with the RCZs. Hope that you have a good car as lots of the teething problems should have been sorted out fingers crossed 🤞
Drive safe and stay lucky 🍀
