What should I look for in a used Peugeot 508 hatchback?
The 508 interior is full of nice soft-touch materials, but check that these haven’t been stained by family use. Check the operation of all the seats. Look at the electrical equipment, too. It’s a large car and will have been used in tight city centre car parks, so look out for dents and scuffs to the front wings and rear boot. Also check the alloy wheels for kerb damage.
With the 508 being so new to the market, reported problems with this model have been remarkably few. It’s worth checking all the non-engine electricals, though, because this is the area where a number of faults have been recorded on similar Peugeots.
Peugeot as a brand fared poorly in our most recent reliability survey, finishing in 24th place out of 31 manufacturers.
