Peugeot 3008 - Reliability and safety
The Peugeot 3008 comes with lots of safety kit as standard, while customers praise its reliability
The second-generation 3008 finished in 37th place on the list of best cars to own based on our latest Driver Power owner satisfaction survey. That puts it ahead of rivals such as the Skoda Karoq, previous generation Nissan Qashqai, Citroen C5 Aircross, VW Tiguan, and SEAT Ateca, but behind the likes of the Toyota RAV4 and old Kia Sportage. As a brand, Peugeot came in ninth spot in the best car manufacturer rankings (out of 32 brands), behind Korean rival Kia, but ahead of Nissan, Skoda, SEAT, Vauxhall, VW, and Renault.
The 3008 features a host of safety equipment and driver aids, including automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning and lane keep assist. Step up to Allure for automatic high beam assistance, while adaptive cruise control and blind spot detection are reserved for range-topping GT.
Unfortunately, the 3008 was crash tested by Euro NCAP long ago in 2016, and the test criteria has changed so much in the interim that this rating has expired. That’s not to say the 3008 wouldn’t protect you well in a collision, but a host of newer rivals tested under the latest criteria, such as the Kia Sportage and Renault Austral, are likely to protect you even better.
The Peugeot 3008 has a two-year unlimited mileage warranty from the factory and an extra year from the dealer, adding up to three years. That matches the industry standard, although it can't match Kia’s seven-year cover and Toyota's ten-year package.
The 1.2 Hybrid needs servicing every 12 months or 12,500 miles, while the 1.2 PureTech requires servicing annually or every 16,000 miles, and the diesel and plug-in hybrids need checking every 12 months or 20,000 miles.
Peugeot offers fixed-price servicing packages to help spread the cost of scheduled maintenance, and costs around £20 per month.
