Do a “google” search on any car, any engine in fact anything and you will find problems/faultsPosted 3 years ago
As on a million other threads. Ford/Mazda/Volvo/Peugeot/citroen fitted that engine. It’s a great engine just 20000 miles between service is too much and 90% of the population never bother to check their oil between service so basically most ran on no oil for over 12 months and then people complain when turbos fail. 95%+ of failures are lack of oil, poor quality oil or poor servicing.surferMember
I have to say I am a bit fond of Peugeots. I have owned 3 307SW’s over the years particularly when the kids were young.
The last one I drove for over 140k and I didnt have a single issue. When I sold it the guy who turned up couldnt believe that every single electrical item worked and the air con was frezing! (they all need re-gassing at some point) It had the panoramic sunroof which the kids loved and was massive with the seats taken out. It was incredibly practical, smooth and very economical as well as having all the toys. We had 8 summers of trips around Europe and Skiing trips without a single issue.
Some people have issues with cars regardless of the their quality and others have very few. Its less about the vehicle itself and more about how you drive and look after it. My mate who is an engineer called me “mechanically sympathetic” which I took as a compliment. Also had two Alfa’s neither of which caused me any bother.Posted 3 years agoback2basicsMember
problem is these days, you can buy almost any brand of car and have no/lots of problems… i think the exception to this rule is honda and toyota.Posted 3 years ago
I bought a merc instead of something cheaper and french, thinking it would be bullet proof, but had no end of problems.scaredypantsSubscriber
I have a 5008 😳 😀
It’s a 2L diesel (140hp ?)
Wasn’t my 1st choice but needed a MPV quickly and it was CHEAP. I was very wary of Peugeot but we’d hired the Citroen version on a holiday and quite liked it apart from the wallowy ride. Peugeot got “decent” reviews overall and rides firmer.
No problems in 3yrs – apart from when I hit a deer
Runs fine, is pretty quick, does 40-45 mpg and carries even biggish kids in the back quite comfortably (haven’t tried 6ft blokes !). Drives OK IMO – soft when fully laden, quite firm when not. Does tramline a little bit. I test drove a SMax and very little in it when unladen – neither’s brilliant; this bollocks about being a drivers car is, err, bollocks when you’re buying a 7-seat MPV (apart from the super sporty SMax the 1st garage got me to test which had about 175hp petrol engine, low profile tyres, sports suspension and all that. Great until you hit a rough road).
Peugeot were discounting very hard when I bought it as their reputation for reliability was kack – probably still are. Loads of extras on the model I got for way less than the basic models in competitors ranges. I assume resale will be shit but I’m expecting to keep it for long enough not to matter (or until the much-predicted catastrophic electrical failure)
Would those ^ up there who seem to know the car let me know what problems I should expect, esp if I can prevent them ?Posted 3 years agobullheartMember
We’ve got one – 2.0 Diesel 150hp Sport. It’s great. No reliability problems, solid build, bags of space and quick/economical.
I’ve had VAG motors that were a pain, and french motors that have been great; it’s just the way it goes I guess.
Including an Espace! Go figure…Posted 3 years ago
