Peugeot 407 is actually one of my favorite regular cars. But since I can't afford a new diesel passenger car, I will save some money to buy a 2008 Peugeot Partner commercial van (diesel) in 2011 or 2012.

Are the taxes that high for regular passanger cars in NL? I see that you are thinking to buy another commercial van.

PS: no snow in western Romania (yet!)

Diesel is inexpensive in the Netherlands (around € 1.15 per liter), but diesel cars are quite expensive. For example, a 3 year old diesel passenger car (that is not a cookie can) will cost you € 15.000 easily. A 3 year old diesel commercial van is usually around € 7.000 - 8.000. Other than that, they are (much) cheaper for insurance and usually somewhat cheaper in road tax. The annual fee for a 1400 kg diesel car is easily around € 1.300 per year in the Netherlands. A diesel van of that weight is closer to € 700 - 800 per year.

All in all I calculated my cost per km (including write-off, maintenance, fuel, insurance, etc.) is around € 0.25 per km. Passenger cars are closer to € 0.70 - € 1 per kilometer if you include all costs. Fuel is only some € 0.06 per km for me.

Peugeot's are good cars? In America, Renault and Peugeot's are forever stained as being crappy cars due to the cars they imported or build for the US market in the 1970s and 1980s. Le Car, anyone?

You can't compare a 1970s or 1980s Renault or Peugeot with the new ones.

Just look at this two:
Peugeot 505 - 1980s


Peugeot 508 - brand new model:

Mounting snowchains onto my car on SOS-niche, old part of A2 motorway at Višnja Gora, Slovenia - Friday afternoon. I couldn't drive anymore with summer tires, so snowchains had to be mounted right that moment. Behind this spot trucks with inadequate winter equipment began to partially close motorway, which resulted very long delays.

Then yesterday on opposite site:
Mass crash, with 38 vehicles, 3 dead and 20 injured, cars encountered dense fog with instantly dropping from clear weather to almost zero visibility (aka hitting "white wall").



Now it is again snowing heavily, we expect up to 40 cm of new snow until morning. And another 20 cm on Tuesday.
