Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Peugeot 308 hatchback?

The cooling system can go wrong, either by not cooling the engine, or going into overdrive when not required. The diesel particulate filter can also give problems, with a fault light appearing on the dashboard and the car refusing to start. Some owners also complain of manual gearbox problems, leaving the car stuck in neutral.

Electrical issues also crop up, so check all switches and controls work correctly.

There have been a number recalls for the Peugeot 308, including problems with the brakes, headlights and electrics. A franchised dealer should be able to tell you if the work has been carried out.
