- 508 W2.I (2011-2017)
Fantastic car that saved my life!
Bought the car new in 2013 and kept it until a total write-off in a head-on collision where I was doing 100kph and the other driver, who was asleep at the wheel, estimated to be doing 120kph. The crash sliced off the front driver's side including the front wheel, suspension and the outer skin of my door. Finished up in a ditch with a broken rib and a few bruises but not a scratch.
I had the car almost 8 years and did 130,000km. Mainly personal commuting but, for five years I used it for work as well, carrying tools and equipment.

Purchased in January 2013 at Peugeot Dealers.
Makes so much sense
Stylish and comfortable with superb ride.
Perfectly adequate power and handling for overwhelming majority of drivers.
Interior punches way above its weight, with all the toys required.
More interesting than most at this price point.
Purchased in November 2019 for $58,000.00.
Lots of problems
This car has now 103,000 kms on it in the early days of ownership we had each electric window mechanism break , a return to Peugeot dealer each time , replaced under warranty , but annoyed that if they knew that there was a problem why not just replace all four units at the same time as apparently it was to do with the plastic that was used in the construction.

I've had this car (Peugeot 508 GT 3013) for 2 months now and I like it. The 2.2L Diesel feels like a strong engine whilst returning an average of 850km to a tank mixed driving, (average speed 45kmh). Taking on a long trip soon (1000km+ run) so looking forward to seeing how economical it can be - maybe it'll return 5L/100km? Interior is good, comfortable and well fitted, leather is high quality. Handling is good thanks to double wishbone suspension. Highway drive is great, feels weighty and solid/safe. ICE system is pretty average as it won't sh...ow me a connected bluetooth device track details. Idle noise is higher than my last car (mondeo) but driving at highway speeds it's quiet (really nice). Auto is good. Styling is good. Overall quality and workmanship is good. Has what might be known as a model wide design fault that stops heated seats from working - apparently expensive to fix. **Doesn't have** Auto Cruise Control impact warning protection and Lane depart warnings. This Peugeot GT offers a superior drive to the Mondeo, which it seems to compete with in European markets. At this early stage of ownership I'm happy with the car.
I've had this car for over a year now, bought second hand with about 50000km's on the clock.
Things I love about this car:
- Great stylish interior, good quality feel of instruments etc.
- Great features: ABS, anti skid, tiptronic with gear change paddles, auto headlights, auto flood light turning, auto-windscreen wipers, etc.
- Stylish exterior, will turn heads - nice european styling.
Things I'm not so happy with:
- Seems to have a high service cost, but not frequent ($600 p/a)
- Very, very firm ride - the norm for most new ...

- 508 W2.I (2011-2017)
I purchased one of the last of the GT sedans with the 2.2 diesel motor (2014-15) for the extra power.
The spec on this by far exceeds premium European models sold around the same price when new e.g. Audi, BMW 3 Series, Mercedes C class equivalent models etc.
Great power to weight ratio, really enjoyable to drive, double wishbone suspension is a delight, economical to use, good boot space, lots of features, love the genuine leather upholstery smell .. and it looks good!
I suspect that most Peugeot owners benefit from a wee bit of an anti Fr...
Peugeot 508 sedan
Beautiful to drive, running costs are amazing!! It has a 1.6lt turbo engine that uses the same amount of fuel if not less then a Mazda 3 sp 23 2.3 litre. this is the first European car I’ve had & im totally sold! The only thing I could fault is the lack of space in the console.. so small! As is the glove box.
Love this car
Coming onto 170k never missed a beat.
Absolutely lovely to drive, very well finished and comfy.
I had a Lexus before this and was worried about stepping back to a "non luxury" car but I do not regret it at all.
1200kms to a tank
Only thing I didn't like was the sterio but I have since upgraded.
Not perfect but so very very good
The GT spec offers acceptable performance but it’s real strength is just how well it performs as an easy to live with every-day prospect.
Quieter on the highway than many of the German similar size sedans, and way better ride.
GT spec gives lots of options, which unfortunately occupy storage space. For this reason (and probably more so in RHD configuration) storage is awful.
Great car but as all European cars, very troublesome
Very nice car, with great leather interior and dashboard but as with all European cars you must be prepared for some trouble and expect to pay a bit for repairs. I would recommend this car to those who can afford it and afford to have it consistently serviced. The diesel fuel also helps reduce the cost of fuel.
Great economy, great to drive but have had some issues
I have really enjoyed the very efficient fuel economy, (currently 5.5lts/100km). The car is comfortable to drive and has great pick up when passing. The boot space is very plentiful and love the ease of opening the boot. The car has been serviced at all scheduled intervals and meticulously cared for. Problems that have occurred are - * failing window motors, the service centre tell me it's from over use, but they are hardly ever used, (the window drops into the door $600 repair) this has happened 4 times, * keys not being detected (now have to...carry both keys to get it to lock/unlock/start), * every time I get new tyres, wheel nut covers are lost because they don't fit tight, * within 12 months of purchase had to have the rear door seals replaced due to gross fading/colour change (covered under warranty) and now my lion on the bonnet is falling apart. Going in for it's 140,000 km service this week, but I think I should have traded in by now. Overall I have enjoyed the drive and comfort of the 508, (my first European vehicle) but I'll try others.
I have now done just on 80,000ks and could not be more happy with the performance and economy of the diesel engine. We do a fair bit of highway driving and and engine is just on 2000 RPM when sitting on 110km/hr. Seats are very comfortable with lots of leg room front and back for 4 adults. I have previously had 307 & 308 cars and the 50-8 is just great and I can not understand why it is not a lot more popular. My only gripes are the cup holder positions and the small glovebox Regan Motors have been very thorough with both their sales and servicing.
I am on my 3rd peugeot, and my 2nd 508 wagon
1 st was a 308 2lt deisel sold at 100000ks only issue was a nosiy turbo replace under warranty
bought 2nd 508 wagon 2.2 lts deisel, with 30,000ks on it sold it with 95,000ks no issues other than normal running costs. That car felt better than my current 508 wagon,maybe the larger motor,or the shape, duno. just did.
I mainly do highway trips about a 1000ks a week, and keep my cars till about 100,000ks and trade them in.
comfort is great, they have heaps of room, very quite,

Bought this second-hand but it had excellent and complete service records. It's my 4th Peugeot and the most luxurious (previous 504, 306 and 308) - leather seats, extras such as GPS (Sat-nav), parking sensors front and rear, excellent fuel economy, and it's powerful yet quiet. I'm only 160 cm tall but the steering wheel and seat (forward, up and tilt) all adjust to make it perfect for me - few cars that can do that. Air-conditioner also adjusts for front driver, passenger as well as for rear passengers. And it has a huge boot!
Questions & Answers
2015 508gt sheared its gearbox mounts only done 52000miles anybody know what would cause this?
The GT has active engine mounts which can fail prematurely due to the extra torque of the 2.2 diesel.
Not too costly to replace so long as you avoid a dealer.
I purchased the part online and got my local guy to fit.

Hi i am looking to buy 8-10 years old Allure or GT(DIESEL). I am attracted by the look and fuel economy but the vehicles have between 160 - 180k on the odometer?
Are they reliable cars that can last that long or i should go better with BMW E60 520D?
I have a GT now at 7 years old and low K's 80,000Ks, located in VIC, would you like to take a look?
