Tried and Tested

Thomas Gowry lands

October 14, 2008

Taxi drivers expect to rack up a large number of miles in their vehicle, after all it’s part and parcel of the job.  However, how long can they expect their vehicle to keep earning them money?

Thomas Gowrie from Glasgow recently took delivery of his factory reconditioned Peugeot E7 from Cab Direct and is delighted with its performance.


Thomas explained: “I’ve driven most hackneys at some stage over the years but I’ve found the Peugeot E7 second to none in the reliability stakes.”

Thomas continued: “It hasn’t required any major maintenance, just the usual bits and pieces you’d expect with a taxi.

“You see more and more cabbies in Glasgow switching to Peugeot E7’s as the diesel engine is so highly rated and the driver comfort is excellent.”

Group Transport

Thomas is clearly delighted with his recent purchase and is looking forward to getting the most out of it.

Thomas explained:  “The vehicle is perfect for my business as I do a lot of work that involves transporting groups of people.  For example Saturday nights are usually quite busy for me and I get regular runs to and from the airport.”

Cab Direct Sales Director Peter Facenna commented:  “The Peugeot E7 really is in a class of its own and we are delighted that Thomas has followed so many other drivers in Glasgow and made the switch to a modern hackney taxi.”

Success Story

Designed and manufactured jointly by Peugeot and Cab Direct, reliability and performance are hallmarks of the E7’s success in the hard-working UK hackney taxi fleet.  The secret of that success lies in a vehicle that is genuinely purpose-built, combining a class-leading engine, drive train and vehicle body all designed to work in perfect harmony.

There is something for everyone in Cab Direct’s extensive selection of factory reconditioned hackney taxis.  Each cab undergoes a comprehensive 43-point inspection before delivery, with all major mechanical and electrical components being repaired or replaced as required.
