Practical Family Car with faults
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 HDi Exclusive 5dr (Review date: 21st February '14)
I bought the car due to the price compared to its competitors in the second hand market. The head up display is excellent and was another reason for buying as makes driving round town so much easier as you never have to #### #### #### ### the road. The panoramic roof is nice and the electronic hand brake assistance on hills is great.
The driving position is good and it is comfortable on long motorway runs. Economy is ok when driven sensibly which you have to do in this car. The body roll is ridiculous. I had no idea when test driving the car how bad it was. On a recent drive to the lakes I was stuck behind a caravan on windy roads, going slowly but both passengers in the back were sick. It is also difficult to fix a isofix base due to the fact that rear floor storage makes it unsafe to have a rear leg. The #### ##### are also uncomfortable and unless the middle seat arm rest is down it is hard to stay in one place
The boot is a good feature as you have to pull a lever to lower the rear seats which is great as I take a lot of music equipment around. The tail gate helps loading as well and is good for sitting on. The moving floor of the boot is a good idea but is very fiddly, the rear boot space is also quite narrow and only just manages my push chair.
Overall the car is ok, I'd personally never buy one again as after driving other cars in the class I wish I'd spent more to get a better driving experience. Insurance is cheap though and when making short journeys around town it is fine. I would still buy a cross-over though rather than the SW or hatchback as the driving position is a lot better.
First time hybrid owner - pleased
PEUGEOT 3008 2.0 e-HDi Hybrid4 5dr EGC [104g/km] (Review date: 20th February '14)
50mpg average covering lots of town driving and some extended 70 mph motorway driving for a car of this size!
70mpg achievable only on flat road @ 56mph
sport mode - goes like stink
interior and esp the panoramic sunroof
large interior space with fold flat seats
satnav and HDD media dukebox
head up display
regenerative braking is great - hardly use actual brakes
lots of auto driver help (lights, wipers, hill assist)
50mpg - claimed 70mpg combined is not achievable as a long term average
boot - wasted space on each side of boot (common to all 3008 models)
easy to drive non-efficiently as accel pedal is ultra sensitive
battery could have more capacity - about 1mile on full EV
no bluetooth audio streaming
no ipod support (only supports MP3 on old ipods with disk mode)
pricey to buy new (look for nearly new deals)
Update @ 44,000 miles
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 e-HDi 112 Active II 5dr EGC (Review date: 24th January '14)
Yes, almost 2 years old and ### under the tyres, and we're still lovin; it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our little Pug is driving as well today as she did when brand new. We've only had one little hiccough in the meantime. Fuel Filters, but more about that below.
Had the car serviced at 37500 and it turns out that this is a 'C' service which is a biggy. Brake pads AND FRONT DISCS replaced. Peugeot told us that since asbestos is no longer used the materials are much softer and wear sooner so need replacing sooner. What wasn't replaced and maybe should have been was the fuel filters. Just got to 40,000 miles, driving along merrily on a bright sunny day and all hell breaks loose on the dashboard - lights up like a Christmas Tree with alarms going off all over the place.
After investigation by Peugeot plugging in their computer the car told them it wants new fuel filters. Duly replaced and no more problems since. If anyone from Peugeot is reading this then maybe you'd like to add this item to the service schedule.
TYRES. Being the eHDI, our car has Michelin Energy Efficient tyres fitted as standard. We're on our second set. The first set had to be replaced at 25,000. Keep in mind this IS a Motability car, and Motability have a 2mm wear limit on their car tyres, but Joe Public only have an extra 0.4mm to play with so not that many miles. We currently have 3.5-4mm of tread on this second set so I expect to change just after 50,000 miles.
CONSUMPTION. We live in a village just 2 miles from a fast dual carriageway which is our main route in and out from the house. On a daily basis we are seeing about 50 mpg according to the on board computer. Not what Peugeot advertised but still a respectable figure when you consider we're at 70mph 5 minutes after leaving the house. Also I keep the air conditioner on for most of the time. This car has a huge windscreen with a steep rake which is prone to misting - especially at this time of the year with all the rain and moisture in the air.
A great car - buy one today.
Not for me.
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 HDi 112 Sport 5dr EGC (Review date: 23rd January '14)
The Car is coming up for 3 year old,so I am giving my opinion for the past 3 years.
Up until the firs service the car was very sluggish, then after that it loosened up. The Electric Gear Change (ECG) is really quite poor, compared to the fully automatic.it would be dangerous to " ### out " from a side street in front of a car that is quite a distance away, would not be advisable because the ECG cannot be relied on, the gears seem to think about it before it picks up, there seems there is a time delay! Once the car is moving it goes well. The MPG is good.
A comfortable ride and good view for the driver. However I will not be going for a 3008.

Having bought the car second hand from a Peugeot dealership in January with a relatively low mileage around 30k on a 10 plate and doing what I considered wise in purchasing an extended warranty for two further years of peace of mind motoring as the sales exec said.
I now find myself in a warranty dispute with the dealer as the warranty company are saying that the bracket which holds a plug in the engine, and has unexplainably failed is not covered by the warranty??
The service engineer was quick to point out that Peugeot engines are the best on the market and it is quite possible that the bracket was not manufactured by them and as such should not reflect on their engine build quality. top marks for loyalty to the brand!
I would have thought that the company would have been most concerned about the failure of the part more than how to dodge responsibility.
Secondly the excuse of a bracket which is integral to the engine not being part of the warranty although not listed in exclusions is a little bizarre.
Cannot wait to get the car back even if I have to swallow the cost so that I can trade it for a German or Japanese make.
Real shame that what is a nice drive and a good concept has gone sour due to loss of confidence and poor handling by dealer.
The whole family love this car
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 VTi Sport 5dr (Review date: 26th April '13)
I never ever thought I would buy a Peugeot. However this car is a revelation. Its so comfortable to drive. Having driven it from Norwich to Manchester on several occasions its been great. The 1.6 petrol is not as bad as I had first worried. It suits our needs just fine. Tax and insurance cost are an added bonus.
Fir such a basic model it has some great features such as the rear seats drop when you put the seats down for loading large items. Thereby making a completely flat surface and the tailgate dropping for easy loading.
Have trust in this car you wont be disappointed. I will seriously consider this car again when we come to replace it. The kids love this car even without electric rear windows which I thought might be a problem but no they loved the looks along with the wife and forced me to buy this car and its been great. Well done Peugeot !
It was to good to last
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 HDi Sport 5dr (Review date: 21st January '13)
You can see that last year at 28000 miles i was a very happy customer with an odd looking car that I was very happy with (although I had wished Toyota had made it) So here I am at 50,000 miles with my car in week 3 and its still with the main dealer after going in for service and with it occasionally jumping out of reverse gear on selection. A few days prior to service the clutch appeared to be slipping. Garage agreed clutch slipping and needed to replace, on removal clutch plate found with little wear and in discussion with fleet company & Peugeot the replaced centre plate, release bearing, slave cylinder to make sure (a wise precaution given price of parts and agreed cost sharing with Peugeot) Car returned on the following Monday and on selection of 1 st gear it jumped straight out and on the rest of the short journey gears were either hard to select or jumped out so garage called and car collected next day. Car returned same day very clearly road tested due to miles and lack of diesel that it went in with. Jumped straight into car and worse than before jumping out of every gear most times and hard to select 2nd gear. Garage contact and I expressed my dissatisfaction with what was taking place. I am now into week 3 and the garage has taken the gearbox out again after replacing the cables that change the gears at the end of last week, it is still not fixed and i am driving around in a reliable Toyota Yaris. The good point is today for the first time I was contact first at the later end of the day to say that they had run out of ideas of hat to do. On every other day I have had to phone for an update. So if you want a great car here it is, if it breaks you have seen the consequences. Luckily I have have a hire car provided through our fleet provider who have said Peugeot will pick up the bill you might not be so lucky. In May when my car is due to be replaced, my original thought of having a 208 has gone off the list along with the Citroen for the same reason. It looks like I will have to follow everyone else and either return to Toyota or go down the VAG route with one of their many offerings from across europe. I thought I had found the best car I had ever had only for the dream to turn into a nightmare.
1.6 HDI EGC Exclusive Auto
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 HDi 112 Exclusive 5dr EGC (Review date: 6th October '12)
I bought this car with reluctance as I am a fan of german cars. I was extremely surprised by the excellent built quality of the car. It has proved to be the most comfortable car I have ever driven. It sits high with great visibility all around. The interior is great with a cockpit like feel of an aeroplane. The EGC is very smooth. It has great shock absorbers and glides through pot holes. The boot is huge as compared to other SUVs(Bigger than a Honda CRV).
1.6HDi has enough power for a comfortable motorway drive. The wind sound is minimal. The glass roof is huge which fills the interior with light. It is just one year old, so I cant comment on reliability.
The dashboard is made up of soft touch luxurious material.
one small drawback is that the car feels very cold in the winter, and exterior does not impress everyone. I get an average 40mpg which is great.
If you are looking for a comfortable family high crossover, with minimal running costs, a large boot, this is the car to buy.
The only word for this car,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 e-HDi 112 Active II 5dr EGC (Review date: 23rd June '12)
I have been driving for 30 years, and have never felt so enamoured of a car as I do this Pug. I have had a few Pugs in my time, but this is by far the best of the best. It is designed around the driver with a lot of thought given to ergonomics. This makes the steering wheel seem crowded but you soon get used to it.
I have recently qualified for Motability, and got this car through that scheme. I was looking at the 308, and with the wife discussing using a roof box for our camping kit. The salesman heard us and politely suggested that we take a look at the 3008. That man deserves the gold medal. Our kit will all fit in this car with no box on top.
For me and the wife running about on our day to day business this car is the bees knees. The split tailgate makes shopping a boon, no matter how heavy the bags. The split level boot means that I can keep my polishes and other junk out of sight, and still retain full load space for anything else.
We just love the semi auto box. Usually we just run about in auto, but if you need some extra poke for an overtake, a tap on the 'flappy paddles' and hit the gas and the engine just growls and throws the car forward. Outstanding for a car of this size with a relatively small 1.6 lump. The economy is fantastic, 55 on the motorway and 48ish just poodling around. It has a stop/start function that takes a bit of getting used to but saves gallons in traffic.
I'm into Advanced Driving with the IAM, and my colleagues also love this car. It handles just like a hatchback, but with that high up view it makes driving so easy. True, the rear view is rather limited for parking, but the reverse bleepers give wonderful peace of mind.
More peace of mind comes with the Peugeot Connect audio system. As is common today the phone connects via bluetooth, but this car does it with the radio OFF. As long as the ignition is on, the phone is connected so if you want a quiet ride with no music, you've still got hands free telephony.
When my current contract ends, I will certainly be going back to Peugeot for another 3008 - I can't wait to see what improvements they come up with.
