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.
Fuel float mechanism has failed diagnosis and replacement for a sender unit $780.00 Australian.

We have only done 22,000kms and have had problems with key not being detected. Dealer advised couldn't find problem or key sometimes plays up. Now we have a shudder when putting into drive. Sat Nav isn't current. Slow to take off. Disappointed for the cost. Our 8th new car but first Peugeot and I would not buy another. Dealer service is poor. Cover cracked at service by mechanic and unfortunately for him we had to look under the bonnet day after picking it up and found it. Returned with wheel nut covers missing. Three trips to Dealership to have computer errors fixed and twice it was towed. I live rural so it is a 140 km round trip. We buy a new car so we have reliability however this car has greatly let us down.
Great car until the electrics go haywire
Got this car a couple of months ago and the first few weeks were lovely. It is comfortable and drives nice. The 1.6 petrol is surprisingly good. Then the electrics went haywire. kept resetting and lighting up the STOP and Service lights. Resets the clock, climate control and alarmingly the cruise control switches off. Took it back to the dealers Allpike peugot and they had to escalate it to France. Its been two weeks and still no diagnosis. Given me an inferior car to drive in the meantime. Called Peugeot Australia that were quick to t...ell me that they have no provision for loan cars and it is up to the dealer whether they will even give you one. This is on a two month old car! Don't expect any support from head office as their policy is that they don't do loan cars. I have no idea what is wrong with the car and how long before I will have it back. Neither does France apparently. I have spoken to others about Peugot as I manage a fleet and they have reported similar problems with service from Peugeot, especially the time it takes. Beware of buying one - they are a nice car but highly prone to be troublesome and remember that the dealer is on their own with little support from the few staff in head office. Comfortable, well equipped and stylish Sta Nav is next to useless and out of date - I have put my Garmin in. Cup holders poor. Storage minimal for such a big car.

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.
