Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Peugeot 108 hatchback?
As with most city cars, pay close attention to the bodywork and look for any scrapes or dents to bumpers and panels. It could end up being quite costly relative to the price of the car to repair and will affect the resale value if you don’t sort them out them.
Also, look for damage to alloy wheels (if it has them) for any kerb damage. The 108 doesn’t come with parking sensors and only some models get a backup camera to assist you when manoeuvring the car.
What are the most common problems with a used Peugeot 108 hatchback?
As with the Citroen C1, all 108s bar the entry-level Access get a 7.0in infotainment touchscreen. Bear in mind that the MirrorLink function (whereby the apps on your phone are displayed on the screen) isn’t compatible with all iPhones, so make sure you try connecting your phone to the 108 you're looking at before committing to buy.
Is a used Peugeot 108 hatchback reliable?
The Peugeot 108 didn’t feature in our latest Reliability Survey. However, the Toyota Aygo – a car the 108 is closely related to – did. The Aygo was the most reliable city car featured in the survey and should give you some indication of how reliable the 108 will be.
It's worth considering, though, that Peugeot as a brand didn’t do very well, coming 27th out of 32 car brands. The Aygo also comes with a five-year warranty while the 108 only gets a three-year warranty.
