2008-reg Diesel, Owner for 3 to 5 years

Having covered 85k miles in 4 years without a sigle fault or breakdown I couldn't score the car any lest than top marks, that said this is what I've come to expect when you service at the recommended schedule and particulary with a diesel engine. Acceptable service cost at main dealers, easy service for none dealer and good saving over main dealer cost. incredibily frugal on fuel for a medium size car. parts are reasonably priced. only long term worry is the cost of dpf and addative (elloys fluid?) but not reached that point yet.

For an every day hatch back family car the 308 is hard to beat. Ithas style, and good build quality. It does exactly what itis supposed to do. Car up 2 5 adults comforty and effortlessly over many miles. It is ideal formy wife and I whoare usually alone inthe car and itcarries plenty of luggage for 2 weeks holiday with no problems hat so ever. With cruise cntrol on motorways we are averaging 46 miles to the gallon from a 1.6 petrol engine. 34mpg around town.

The 308 is a 307 with better build quality and without reliability issues. I would like to get more mpg (which does not work because of the hilly countryside and morning cold starts), but other than that there is hardly anything to save!

Since purchasing this car from new I have never had any problems with any sort of reliability. So far servicing costs have been quite reasonable because there have not been any parts to replace. also road tax is very low at only ł30.

It does everything quite well but is let down by its roadholding and rather soft ride.

The build quality and equipment levels on Peugeots have greatly improved as has the dealer service over recent years.

Never broke down, only fault is an auto-dim rear view mirror that didn't always dim. replaced under warranty. Servicing costs are not cheap until after the car passes it's third birthday.

Generally pleased, but it does mist up a lot, also there isa rattle that as yet I have not identified, and I doubt the accuracy of the computer read outs.

No problems since purchase in 2011 and 9000miles mixed use. Service parts are quite expensive but servicing only required every 2yrs or 20000 miles.

Very reliable up to date. Diesel is getting expensive. but that's the government's fault for taking so much in tax!!

Its new so no problems yet. Cannot seem to reach the stated mpg so it is slightly higher running cost.
