Your hesitation and contemplation are correct. 

Good luck if you still do not abort the idea.

if hesitate better not buy, otherwise will regret later when the issues crop up eventually.  But if have budget and time and prepared for it, then why not?  Typically continental cars will have more issues and more costly to maintain than Japanese/Korean cars

many simply tiagong or hearsay.

 

at the end of the day, if you like just go for it.

 

i chose a french for my wife as i feel its a safer car as she wanted a hatchback.

 

my brother bought a 308SW half a year ago and enjoying his ride.

 

The spare parts are cheaper than you thought.

 

LIke? just go for it.

 

whats more important is there are workshop that are specialized in french make.

i want to believe nobody especailly establish brand build cars that have problems. thrn they woukd have closed by now.

of course some cars require more attention when you put in more features. simple, if you have 2 air bag against 6, then who has more to maintain?

the economy os scale will also affect cost and availability of spaces.

you can ask until the cow comes home, it will end up with a balanced reply. that will explain why they are still selling this car.

I owned a Peugeot for just under 9 years. Recently sold it and bought a Renault haha.

 

I too agree a lot of what's said about Peugeots being unreliable, expensive to repair, is based on hearsay. You'll find a lot of happy Peugeot owners. Personally, I didn't find my Peugeot any less or more reliable than other cars.

My take is it's heng-suay. Popular models can have major breakdowns. New cars can have major breakdowns. Repair cost is part of owning a car unfortunately. With a new Peugeot at least you have a 5 year warranty.

 

Like a previous poster said, if you like the feel and looks of a car, go for it. I firmly believe if you're paying high 5 figures, going into 6 figures, for a car, you better feel shiok looking at it, and driving it. There's another thread here where someone bought a Nissan Note because it was cheap and reliable, but now feels like selling it after 2 months.

If you really want piece of mind, then go for long-term car rental :)

Hi. My current ride (Mazda2) is due for scrapped in October 2017, and my preference is to get preferably a continental SUV/crossover for my next ride, though I don’t mind a Jap/Korean hatchback/ sedan also. Has test-driven the following cars:

 

Nissan Note

Nissan Juke

Nissan Qashqai

Honda Jazz

Opel Meriva

Opel Astra 1.0T

Opel Astra 1.4T

Suzuki Vitara

Hyundai Elantra

Peugeot 2008

Citroen C4

Citroen C4 Picasso

Volkswagen Golf

Volkswagen Jetta

Mitsubishi ASX

Seat Leon

Mazda 3

 

My personal preference narrows down to two (Opel Astra 1.4T and Peugeot 2008) in my shortlist, and I am at a loss over which to purchase.

 

Astra 1.4T over 2008

Better finishing

4 cylinder over 3 cylinder

Better acceleration

More sturdy (the 2008 has a flimsy passenger door)

More reliable (I think)

 

2008 over Astra 1.4T

SUV

Cheaper road tax

Panoramic moon roof

Cheaper price (down payment and instalment)

 

Would like to hear from both Astra and Peugeot bros on your views before I decide on my purchase. (This will be posted on both Astra and Peugeot threads)

Two more SUV coming soon. You might want to wait a little more. 

SEAT Ateca Q2 2017

Peugeot 3008 MID 2017

 

How about KIA Niro? Heard it sell like the hotcakes. Need to wait till July shipment already.

With a $30,000 CEVS, the ARF/scrap value I will get back will be quite pathetic for the price I am paying.

 

I asked about the Ateca when I test drove the Leon. Was told it won't be in 2017 as Seat is focussing on the LHD for Ateca at the moment. If not, would have waited.

 

If Peugeot is bringing in the exact same model displayed during the Jan motorshow, I will prob give it a miss. Don't really like full digital display odometer, and the centre console has too many buttons. Plus was told by Peugeot SE the price of new 3008 will be around 10% more than the phased-out 3008, likely about $120,000+, way out of my budget.

I quite like the 2008 though I have not tried the Astra 1.4T.  I'm sure Astra 1.4T cost a few grand more.  Correct me if I were wrong.

The only thing I hesitate regarding 2008 is there is no keyless:(

Hey bro Heng, I am somewhat in the same situation as you. I am considering between the Astra 1.0tT and the Peugeot 308. Test drove both cars and finally decided to buy the 308. There are 2 main reasons why I choose the 308 over the Astra.

 

1) The drive of 308 feels much smoother than the Astra 1.0T. But I believe the 1.4T should be as smooth as the 308.

 

2) This is the main reason why I chose the 308 over the Astra. The interior built quality. The look and feel of the interior of 308 is much more premium as compare to the Astra. One very simple example, just look at the park button of both cars and you will understand what I am saying. When you sit in the rear passenger seat (Astra) with the door close, you will notice the full door panel is made of hard plastic (very cheap feel IMO) and the window button is placed at a very awkward position. Also because of the sloping roof design, the headrooom is pretty limited and thus has a cramp feeling.

 

My advise will be for you to go test drive both cars and see which you prefer more. But for value for money and built quality, 308 gets my vote.

You're right bro !! 308 interior is superb!! Far more superior than most jap car and some conti car like vw. Renault interior is no bad but their price is much higher than 308.

Been driving 308 for 2 weeks. Love it, powerful yet comfortable car and important is , i got it for $98K. Really value for money. Conti car with all the high tech features and full glass roof under $100k really cannot find liao. Hehe

If u want faster off the line , get Astra 1.4. the 6AT GB is creamy when doing hard acceleration

Recent price was $107,888 subject to changes

Reliability wise I think Peugeot and Opel now not too far off. But to level comparison maybe 308 vs Astra better. Both were COTY once.


If u like keyless, go for altis better haha. Just place hand on handle can unlock, no need press button.

Tech wise Astra has better infotainment and front driving assistance less BSD. Decent viewing angles all round

Personally not a fan of roof due to local climate but to each his own.

The servicing is expensive , and I always need to send in twice after servicing with AD . They tell me wear and tear right after their servicing so guys do take note of this ...
So any recommendations which workshop you send for servicing outside ?

please help me :)

When I start my Peugeot 106, it will idle fine, but if I give gas it will stall. If I give just a bit of gas, after about 20 seconds the engine starts to run properly. I unmounted and cleaned the Throttle body and the Idle air control valve, but the problem is still exactly the same.

here are some things I noticed:

1) happens just in hot days and when car was turned off for hours 2) a couple of times I had random erratic idle episodes

I think it is a problem with the MAP sensor or the Throttle position sensor but I don't know how to test it and I would like not to buy random parts..

Car model: Peugeot 106 1.1 TU1JP (HFX)

Thanks

moved your post here so that others can assist in the right place

 

 

Seems to me that you have an O2 sensor issue as well.  Could be the pre exhaust.
