Greetings to you, I will like to request your view on a 2010 or 2011 Peugeot 3008. We are first time car buyers and we are currently viewing a 2010 Peugeot 3008, with approximately 110k miles on the clock, diesel engine, automatic for €7,500 sticker price (negotiable). We love this car and we would love to have it, but we are wondering what kind of problems and the level of reliability this car has. We will appreciate if you can provide us with your analysis of this car.

I’m assuming that’s a 1.6 HDI diesel model? If so you need to watch for excessive black smoke from the exhaust, which could indicate a blown turbo. Check too to see if the diesel particulate filter is working properly — if it’s a low-mileage car (and that is quite low miles) then it may not have been driven regularly enough to keep the filter clean, and they’re expensive to fix and clean. If it has air conditioning then that needs specific servicing so check that has been done and, if you notice that the car pulls to the left at higher speed, then it might need new front tyres. Other than that check that all switches and buttons are working properly, and that the car has a full and complete service history.
