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.
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 HDi Sport 5dr (Review date: 24th February '12)
I have driven Peugeot cars for a number of years but this is by far the best. Superb driving round town and excellent on motorways. Very comfortable for both driver and passengers. An enormous and versatile boot space. Handles well under all conditions. True steering and responsive controls, particularly acceleration. A dream to drive, and despite its size, perfect for parking.
PEUGEOT 3008 2.0 HDi 150 Sport 5dr (Review date: 19th January '12)
This is a perfect family car and regularly seats 4 adults and a baby in car seat plus the big boot easily holds the buggy and other baby related items. Equally as good for the dog. What i like is the split opening of the back door, which is good for the dog to jump up on and for lifting heavy items onto before putting in boot, Running costs are good and considering it is a deisal is fast and decisive. The 6 gears also help keep the economy of the vehicle. A pleasure to drive on a long run. The only downside of it is when the sidelights are one, the indicators do not show up too well. All in all a fabulous car.!!
Brilliant if not Beautiful
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 HDi Sport 5dr (Review date: 18th January '12)
Probably the best car that I have owned. It economical, reliable andcomfortable. Drove to France last year over 12 hours of driving (stoped regularly for breaks) got to my destination in the evening and felt brilliant no pians of muscle ache anyware so a great long journey car. Pack it full of stuff and drive it sensibly and will still deliver 50+ to the gallon. A 1.6 diesel does not sound like it should be up to much but it is more than adeqate and am delighted with it. Its had a few minor iratations with screws that need titening up and the front wings as on all 3008's i've seen need to be better fitted as at the back ware they meet the doors the panel fit is poor maybe an 1/8th of an inch out on both sides. If Toyota had built it it would have been the creme de la creme. Peugeot have stepped up their game and this car has certainly converted me to considering staying with the brand. My family love it to at it gets regular use up and down motorways as well as down B roads and the like, it took a short time to adjust to the dimensions but I am very confident taking it down the back roads of Buckinghamshire and feel very safe in it too. The only gripe I have is if you try to change from 3rg to 4th gear quickly it does not fall in to place so you have to have a secound bite at it. This is still the same at 28,000 miles.
It gets frequent runs to Kent and a far bit of in town work to. If you are looking for a good all rounder which is economical and can get you safley from A to B and then look no further as I have the car that you need. Try one, you'll like it & end up up loving this mildly ugly Pug.
3008 Exclusive 1.6 diesel
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 HDi Exclusive 5dr (Review date: 24th August '11)
This is my 3 company car which I use extensively for work (like a van). Compared to both my previous fords C-Max and Mondeo this Peugeot is excellent if not better but has a couple of drawbacks.
I found the cruise control tends to make the vehicle wander on the motorway. Not a bad thing you don't change lanes or anything it's just the feeling that's odd.
The under floor storage is not worth having the C-max was far better.
The cornering is also not as planted as the fords but driven well its fine.
Overall an excellent vehicle and loads of gadgets. I love the heads up display but I'm still trying to getting used to the styling.
PEUGEOT 3008 1.6 HDi 112 Exclusive 5dr EGC (Review date: 26th July '11)
This car is outstanding with the fuel economy and ride are out of this world. I have driven the nissan and was umming and arring but plumped for the Peugeot after speaking to a dealer in Christchurch.
I have done around 10000 miles and it handles well and there is so much pwer out of a 1.6 engine. This is the first diesel i have had and to be fair I usually drive a bmw and was a little scepticle.
well done peugeot
