Is a used Peugeot 3008 a good car?
The old Peugeot 3008 wasn’t the most exciting car to look at, but the latest version, which came along in 2016, changed all that. Its blocky front end, complete with chunky grille and the smart vertical daytime running lights found on higher-spec trims, really stands out from the crowd.
Inside you’ll find one of the most interesting cabins of any SUV, with lots of quirky shapes and overlapping lines that sit just the right side of fussy. There are quality materials to be found too, giving the 3008 a premium feel.
The driving position is fine but some drivers will find the oddly small steering obscures the speedo. Meanwhile, rear visibility in particular is poor. More positives include a comfortable ride, light steering that makes town driving a breeze, and plug-in hybrid engines that offer very low running costs. They’re more expensive to buy, though.
What to look for when buying a second hand Peugeot 3008
Ownership surveys look favourably on the Peugeot 3008, with buyers commending its build quality and comfort. There aren’t too many reports of faults with the 3008 either, which bodes well for its reliability.
That being said, one of the most common complaints relates to electrical faults. When looking at a used example, be sure to spend some time making sure everything works as it should, such as the lights and any interior functions. If you spot any warning lights it’s probably best to walk away.
There was also a recall for post-2018 diesels because of an issue with the diesel particulate filter, so make sure this has been done before buying. Although if it hasn’t, you can get it sorted at a Peugeot dealer free of charge.
Peugeot 3008 FAQs
It does have regenerative braking, which allows the battery to be slowly topped up on the move, but it is much more efficient to fill the battery externally as often as possible.
The Peugeot 3008 is available with all-wheel drive on the plug-in hybrid version. The rest of the range has front-wheel drive.
The Peugeot 3008 is built in Sochaux, France. The plant is owned by the firm’s parent company Stellantis.
The plug-in hybrid version offers the lowest running costs if you can keep the batteries topped up, but it costs more than petrol and diesel models. If you’re spending a lot of time on the motorway, the diesel will be your best bet, but if you’re an inner-city driver and don’t fancy a hybrid, the 1.2-litre petrol is nippy enough. Trim-wise, all models are well-equipped, but the pricier 3008 GT model gets loads of kit and looks the smartest.
The Peugeot 3008 is a very reliable car, scoring highly in owner satisfaction surveys. There are no stand out areas that you need to watch out for, so stick to the usual advice to look for second-hand cars with plenty of service history, and give them a close look for any signs of damage. This can include poorly aligned panels and subtly mismatched paintwork.
