Contrived system ruins potentially great car
Had the car just under 2 years, was attracted by the leg room in the back and that it could have 2 child seats and easily fit an adult between, plus as the 5008 has quite a large boot space to fit my 55kg Rottweiler both width and height wise it looked ideal. Pro’s, for such a large car but small engine (1.6) it’s actually quite responsive pick up wise if you turn on power mode. Rear leg room is really good. The navigation system integration with iCockpit display is great. Con’s, iCockpit although it looks good is contrived, buttons everywhere,...and you have to press way too many buttons at times to get to a basic thing, the navigation system is no different, you have home or work saved but you have to press, navigation, favourites, then the favourite, then a stupid disclaimer “ok” before it actually kicks in, other cars it’s 1 press. The “power” ie: boost/performance mode button for the engine always turns off within 30 seconds of using it the first time, then you press it again and it stays on. The Cruise control sticks are entirely under the steering wheel so you can’t see any of it, the voice control says it doesn’t work in this country so you can’t press the phone button and say call someone (workaround is via apple/android auto)

Cheap quality for cheap price
We bought brand new the Peugeot 5008GT 2019 model, exact 1 year we had so many problems, from minor repairs to engine Oil leaking.

We made further contact with company, for the car to be returned back with their replied the car is under warranty, and problem fixed ready to pickup.
We would pass this experiences over to people whom considering to buy this car.

This vehicle is one that stands out in the ever growing medium SUV segment. Its looks are more dynamic than the standard fare and it is loaded with tech that should make cars with a price tag twice as much blush.
This particular vehicle is used for daily commute to and from the CBD to the far outer suburbs and the odd interstate trip. It suffered a number of electrical issues early on which were solved with a computer reboot at the first service. It is now 18 months old and covered over 45 000 Kms trouble free.

- P87 GT (2017-2021)
Great car to drive, huge amount of space, but stilldoes not feel big when in driver seat.
The luxury and comfort surpass the German luxury SUVs I test drove before buying the 5008.
The drive is not anaemic by any means, especially if you select the dynamic mode.
Fuel economy is on par with the electric plug-in hybrids.
It's simply a pleasure to be in.

A bit special this 5008
OK I've only had it for a week but first impressions count. Just retired, had Benz's for years which were company cars so this car was for the wife and I with consideration for the grandkids, thus the 7 seats. I like the style of it, just looks classy and different, not the run of the mill jigger you see floating around. The dash is a bit special, steering wheel is great and there is tech to burn. The leather seats are impressive and look quality. There is heaps of room in the second row. The boot, I'm a Bunnings man so need a mans boot and I'v...e got it. Given the cars size it just doesn't feel large to drive or park and its quiet, I love quiet. The motor has got plenty of spunk about it, just fine around town and nice and cruisy on the freeway. Would write more but I've got a sore back so I'll sit in the car for awhile with the seat heater on full blast and the seat massager gentle doing it's thing.
Love this Car. Room for three car seats and lots of great features.
We bought this car because we are expecting twins and with a 2 year old we need to be able to fit three car seats in. This model comes with three iso-fix points which will make this aspect of life a lot simpler.
We love everything about this. Does'nt have a huge amount of legroom in the back but that wont worry us for 10 years or so.
This is an upgrade from a Peugeot 308 which we loved as well. Never had one single issue with it.
A wonderful and spacious vehicle
After coming from a more expensive vehicle, this car is like a dream (which I wasn't expecting). It is very smooth, has plenty of space, and very fuel efficient. I like the 7 seats, which give it heaps of boot space when the seats are folded down. I was lucky to buy at end of financial year and got a great deal and 7 year warranty. All good so far.
2013 model - great car
We bought this car because of its 7 seat capacity and extra leg room in the middle row. It carries a huge load with all the seats down flat as well. The car is very smooth to drive and easy to park thanks to the sensors and rear view camera all of which activate when in reverse. The centre console display has a lot of features which do take a while getting used to, but I really enjoy what I have discovered about it so far. The headrest screens have been put to use by the kids for their playstation games. We upgraded from a Peugeot 307 Touring, and there are many improvements in this model, even though we loved our old car too!
Love everything about this car. Particularly the extra leg room for the kids in the middle row.
