The beauty and the beast
I knew buying a Peugeot was risky. You hear that oftenly. However, 3008 was everything I was looking for. Beautiful design, nice for traveling, super confortable and safe + probably the biggest sunroof on the market, which is really amazing. I finally found one worth buying. Low mileage (64k), all services done in Peugeot, performed great when I tested, no weird noises, no weird smoke, nothing. Made the payment, got into the car and I totally enjoyed it! At least for the first 5 miles before the oil pressure sign went on and a big STOP appeared.... Yes, 5 miles. I went straight back into the dealer and landed like D day in Normandy asking for my money back. Car was bad and the dealer knew? I don’t know, but believe me, that got me scared enough to avoid this brand all cost. No car design is nicer than peace of mind!
Purchased in June 2019 at Car dealer for $9,000.00.
It Will Cost You
Purchased the car privately in December 2017 with 32,000KM on the clock.
Absolutely loved it for the first ~9 months I owned it. Gorgeous interior, great exterior, lots of fun to drive.
Then the problems started:
- Sept 2018: check engine light came on. Tried to have it diagnosed by RACQ, but the fault went away before it could be diagnosed. Light came back on a few days later, repeated the process, and then a few days after that.
- Oct 2018 - Jan 2019: Went to the dealer 5 times, 4 times on the back of a tow truck. First three times to r...

- 3008 T8 (2010-2016)
A year past its manufacturing warranty and only with 25,000km on the Odometer we experienced the air conditioning failure. It resulted in replacement of compressor for a cost of $1,745- using a non-genuine component. A genuine component would have cost in excess of $2,900.
This sort of failures on a so called luxury vehicle with only 25,000 km on the clock is unexpected and probably unheard of. We discussed the issue with Peugeot Australia and requested reimbursement on the premise that such a failure on such a low kilometre vehicles constitut...
I have just spent $5000 to repair a 4 year old car that is 3 months past warranty. The NRMA said "it happens" and they have no way of knowing if it was something that had been existing for a while, or had just happened. They discovered metal shavings in the fuel line and said that if it had been a Japanese car the same repair would have been around $1500. Nice looking car, but no more European for me.

Know better, choose better.
This is a SUV designed for all the drivers needs with handling and performance on tap when needed with design convenience faultless.This is the reason i drive this car,i get 7litres per 100km all day from a petrol engine that only costs $330 for a 20 000km service.It's cheap to run and great fun to drive.No other SUV i had test driven had these attributes.Also the leather heated seats.help the driver with the best driving position in this class,visibility and comfort help warn off fatigue.
Design and styling are distinctive low end torque amazing
Low profile tyres may be good for handling but poor for ride quality.55 profile better than 45;s change it.
Questions & Answers
Hi there, I am looking to buy a Peugeot 3008 2013 Automatic with 65k km. I haven't inspect it yet but I really like the interior, size and sunroof. However, I'm affraid I will make a mistake by buying this car. Any advice? Comments? Thanks!
I'm thinking of purchasing a new 3008 p84 .How are you finding the car now after you have had it for a while.Good & bad
Since taking delivery of my 3008 GT Line last year, the car continues to live up to my expectations. The Peugeot is refreshingly different and distinctive. The car is well built, feels solid and comfortable with a smooth and amply capable drivetrain. It imparts an aura of quality and individualism by its unique exterior styling, inviting interior highlighted by the futuristic dash panel, punctuated by my favourite feature the i-Cockpit. It has been completely reliable so far and has lived up to and deserved the 60 plus awards it has won overseas. Real world suburban fuel consumption for me results in 9.0 litres/100kms which is not class leading but ok. Overall, I can happily recommend it.
