    Peugeot Partner

    the issues as follows. issues i found starting from the 2nd day of collecting a brand new Peugeot Partner 1. "rust spots" found on all door hinges. and yes, the same issue when i double check on their display unit. Peugeot claims this is not rust. but to be frank, i don't know what that is then. Pictures taken on both my vehicle and the display vehicle. They did not replace parts but rather oil the spots, went down 6 trips and yes, one extremely minor spot is still there. 2. Windsreen is foggy when driven at night in raining condition. The heavier the rain the worse it gets. This windscreen issues worsen the already bad condition that it is driven in. You can wipe the inside and the outside of the windscreen, the foggy issue is still there. Unsolved till now. Extremely dangerous when driving in that condition and i had to drive extremely slow. (Video proof available) 3. Wheels alignment, always steer towards the left and was told they fixed it every time. I understand that wheels alignment is not exact. I requested them to over correct to the right the last time. but it's still steers towards the left. 4. other cosmetic issues which they were able to ratify on the 2nd trip. All issues has been properly communicated, going through the faults on site, video and pictures send and a meeting during the last trip. But then, for point 1,2 and 3 they cant seems to get it right the 1st, 2nd, 3rd time and so on and still an issue now. The front line service is still trying to set things right, but it's really a lot of downtime sending the vehicle in for checks and comes back with the issues not resolved. Still, a problem is a problem, the front line was able to lessen my pain by, collecting and returning the vehicle to my car park when they say they need 3 days to test and ratify the fault So right now after all the trips, for issue 1, i think its really minor now that i just live with it. hopefully, it does not gets worse. issue 2, i recently had a cracked windscreen so i hope a new windscreen will resolve the issue issue 3, until the next time, i was able to find time again to go down again. I will bear with the additional wear and tear of the tires In terms of the Peugeot Partner, (compared to my previous ride which is a fiat doblo) 1. Its good to drive, 2. handling is fine 3. till now, no black smoke even at full throttle 4 3 front seats! 5. spacious 6. 1.6l vs 1.9l previously, so less power i feel on gear 1 and 2. 7. driving needs a bit of getting use when i did the switch to the peugeot 8. lots of compartment to store things compared to similar range of vehicles 9. efficient use of space, left front seat can fold down have a flat space from the back to the front of maybe 3meters? or the left front seats can pull up to put a bulky item at the front. 9. as with all diesels vs petrol, saves $$$. average 850km ~ 900km for 1 x 60 litre fuel tank. (of course depends on your driving habits) 10. i have lesser issues with my doblo then partner when i first got them

    Peugeot Partner

    Hi, Just to check, if there is any one here that drives a Peugeot Partner?? I'm driving a partner model 2015, and I do not have any good experience with them. anyone here has any good or bad experience to share? In a nutshell, got my ride in dec and it's been 7 times that i have been to the workshop to resolve the same issues. and yes, same issues dont get resolve. issues are not critical, but i wonder how many times do i have to visit them. the vehicle is good to drive but it seems that servicing is pale in comparison. original intention is to buy a 5008, but i think i should just keep my money till my view changes.

    Peugeot 5008

    new price around $120k after discounts. whats the highest you got a quote for? I might be keen if it's good enough offer, and hopefully somewhat higher than those car dealers.

    Just note that you are getting an european make. best to get a mechanic to go through it. if got fault and not found out, will not be a cheap problem. if you cannot tahan the maintenance best dont buy.

    Which van is a better deal?

    ya, but mine is the latest model. I even have difficulty finding reviews on it. then theres warranty, dont wanna mess that up, repairing the mess will cost way more than a jap make.

    Which van is a better deal?

    well, there is ETS, unless you are buying direct from the owner and have no clue of ETS, no way will a trader let you have his profit. but there is some van going for 5k and less, you just have to keep a look out for it. No one here drive a peugeot van???

    Which van is a better deal?

    when i sold my fiat doblo and got the new peugeot. scape value $10 (yes, there is no missing zeros) tow $200 taxi back to home $20 so ....... option 1 is the best! My conclusion, i will pay for the mechanic. hhahahaa. i like the combo, got some friends driving it in the past. for kangoo, i thought it's way too underpowered and small. thought the clutch of the kango is light. compared to the fiat doblo 2013 that i have droved.

    Which van is a better deal?

    i mean, changing of oil, i have never done that. but i do need a hose or pail to hold the oil right? bottom line, that's not something i do in a car park or any location. thanks. it will void warranty. but just sucks that the servicing = free labour only. anyone else can share their peugeot experience with their vans? or best, if someone actually got the same van as me.

    hi, where do you get your filter from? and where did you pour your engine oil?

    Which van is a better deal?

    bought liao. also conti are stronger and surviveability is way higher than jap makes. got into accidents before and survived. (mostly other peoples faulty, FYI). How to put a price in that? Those vehicles that i got into accident with esp with jap, they got hurt pretty badly (bumper dented in deep) and all i got is scratches. so European is always my top choice. Previously before this ride, i was driving a Fiat Doblo Cargo 1.9MJTD. thus, just checking with the bros, to share their experience if anyone bought into a van, especially a peugeot partner van recently.

    Which van is a better deal?

    Any bros here bought Peugeot Partner 1.6A e-HDI Van 2015? please share if you also got the earlier version. Just got 1 recently only to find out that, 1. the back door panel's hinge has rust spots on both sides and also a rusty screw. (brand new, but found out only a day after the collection of the vehicle. 2. The servicing that came with it is labour only. (charges for oil change and etc will be charged) a, 1st servicing will cost $182 (after free labour) b. 2nd servicing will cost $366 (after free labour) c. subsequent servicing will be about $500 Servicing will be done at an interval of 10k or 6 month which ever is earlier and price will be subjected to changes and before GST. A check with fiat and citroen turns out that, if you buy their van's, pretty much comes with a 3 to 5 years servicing package free. Labour and standard parts inclusive. Since already bought it, pretty much nothing i can do, but welcome any bros to share their experiences. Very hard to find someone who bought peugeot van to comment.

    Peugeot 5008

    I quite like the latest 5008. selling about $128k pros nice interior, leather seats and all. spacey, can stow the seats. panoramic roof good handling diesel (this point can be consider bad too) heads up display cons more effort to keep the seats compared to say, Mitsubishi outlander? back of the seat not recommended for people over 1.65 in height? I'm 1.76m, so definitely a no no for me engine response not as good as petrol. (slower response) the car gear box is semi automatic and not as not as responsive a fully automatic gearbox. will need some getting use to drive. I dont owe this ride, but i have test drive in one, this year 2015 OCT.
