What should I look for in a used Peugeot 308 hatchback?
Seeing as the 308 is a family hatchback, it’s worth checking the seats for wear and tear and ease of operation. And the car may have been used in tight urban car parks, so it’s worth checking the bodywork for scuffs and bumps and the alloy wheels for any kerb damage.

Is a used Peugeot 308 hatchback reliable?
The 308 scored a middling 66% reliability score in our most recent survey, with most major problems revolving around the non-engine electrics. On newer cars, these faults were usually fixed under warranty within a week. It finished in 28th position out of 34 cars in the family car class. Peugeot as a brand finished a very disappointing 27th out of 31 manufacturers in that same reliability survey.
