What used Peugeot 508 saloon will I get for my budget?
Thanks to some heavy depreciation, you can now pick up an early 2011 Peugeot 508 with high-mileage diesel for £3200. If you spend a bit more, there are plenty of lower-mileage examples in mid-range spec for £5500. The overwhelming majority of used 508s for sale are diesel and not petrol. If this doesn’t fit your driving habits, it might be worth looking at rivals such as the Skoda Octavia, which is available with petrol engines in greater numbers.
The 508 was facelifted in mid-2014 and you will need to spend around £11,500 to get one of those with less than 40,000 miles.
If your 508 is over three years old, then it will qualify for fixed-price servicing. Peugeot's scheme is pretty reasonable, with prices that compare favourably with rival manufacturers' offerings. Even if your Peugeot isn’t three years or older, main-dealer servicing is on a par with mainstream rivals.
