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?

508 has a common problem
Gearbox
Took it gearbox solutions
They want 3 k to fix
Peugeot tell you the gearbox is not to be serviced for lifetime of car .
After sipping on traffic lights car doesn’t move on take off , while you are revving to get going ; a big sudden bang happens moving the car by surprise giving it a big jerk that scares you .
Never again !!!!!!!

This is my first time that I'm interested in Peugeot brand. I'm interested in 2012 Peugeot 508 allure auto. it's one-owner car, and has 68691kms. I'm a bit skeptical about the price which is $17600. I'm afraid if the car will break down often in the future. I mainly driving on highway, not often to drive in city. I would like to know about Peugeot reliability, maintenance cost and resale value. Any insights? I really want the car but the price is little bit dodgy.

I have been offered 2013 508 Allure that has done 39,000k. Im upgrading from 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid (110,000 km). The 508 has had only one (old lady) owner and appears to be well looked after with all service history available. Just concerned about "European" cars and some of the issues raised in the reviews. Could someone please allay my fears

No idea sorry mate.
Best to take it to Peugeot and get them to plug it onto the computer and they will know what's wrong straight away.

Has anybody had an issue with a “clacking” noise in the 508? Sounds like diesel pump but it seems it is Steering Pump. Any experience anyone?

Hi! Have not long had a 2011 508gt only done 19000 kms. Had no problems until a few days ago when I went to put my foot down to overtake and nothing happened, closely followed by it going into limp mode home. On getting home the engine was a little overheated but there was no indicative warning. Can anyone help with what it could be please?

I am about to purchase a 508 Turbo Diesel 2.2 (2012) second hand. I love the car design and comfort. But I am reading blogs about how they are maintenance nightmares- electronics, overheating, excessive vibrations at high speeds. Does any owner of this beautiful car agree or care to comment?

Mean't to say is the car still under warranty, i purchased an extra full 2 year warranty just in case, those parts should be covered i would think.
