Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Peugeot 3008 estate?
Even though there are some really nice materials in the 3008, you should still check that there are no rips, tears or stains in the fabric that covers the seats and doors.
In addition, make sure that all the storage areas still have lids on them, if they were there originally. That shouldn't be an issue, though, because the interior seems pretty well screwed together.
The boot is large and capable of swallowing plenty of suitcases. Sensibly, the top of the rear bumper has been left unpainted, so it should handle bags striking it well.
What are the most common problems with a used Peugeot 3008 estate?
Some examples produced between 28 January 2018 and 7 May 2018 can suffer with diesel particulate filter (DPF) damage from a plastic component in the exhaust system. Check with your dealer to find out if your car is affected, because it may need a replacement part if it is.
Tow bar fixing
The fixings for the tow bar might not have been tightened to the correct settings at the factory on 3008s made between 15 June 2017 and 15 January 2018. A Peugeot dealer will be able to let you know if your car is affected and check the tow bar for you.
Oil may leak from some cars built between 27 April 2018 and 30 May 2018 because a sealing plug wasn't tightened correctly. You can find out if your car is affected by speaking with a local dealer.
Some early 3008s manufactured between 1 October 2017 and 30 November 2017 could suffer with engine failure in extreme circumstances, due to internal components that don't meet factory specifications breaking. Speak with a dealer for further information, because the engine might need to be replaced.
Is a used Peugeot 3008 estate reliable?
The 3008 did rather well in the family SUV category in our 2018 What Car? Reliability survey, placing 4th for diesel models and 5th for diesels in a class of 21, but it only finished mid-table in the 2019 survey. Peugeot as a brand didn't do quite so well, finishing 18th out of 31 brands.
