The Most Common Problems With the Peugeot 3008

In 2009, the 3008 was launched as a variant of the Peugeot 308. At that time, many customers did not know how to classify this estate car with hints of vans and SUVs. Especially since Peugeot has not only modernised the crossover's technology, but also its looks. The French also put a lot of effort into making the 3008 very high quality. This is noticeable in the superb and haptically-pleasant materials in the interior. There, the 3008 offers plenty of space, both for the occupants and their luggage.

For the most part, vehicle owners can drive the Peugeot 3008 for many years without any problems or difficulties. However, with some models, engine, or transmission damage occurs. Factory faults or faults on the part of the vehicle owner are responsible for this. Such defects are particularly common in models that have reached 150,000 kilometres. The reasons vary – from overheating of the engine itself – to a broken oil pump, these and several other reasons exist for engine or transmission damage in a Peugeot 3008.

Typical defects in the Peugeot 3008

Some problems only occur after many years of operation, others have to do with technical issues and had forced the manufacturer to issue a recall. The Peugeot 2008 had also shown weaknesses in the past. Whether it's the timing belt, the Peugeot 3008 battery, or the brakes: there are some weak points that drivers should be aware of.

Timing belt – a well-known weak point

In the 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine, the timing belt is considered a typical weak point. In petrol engines, the belt runs in oil which is supposed to minimise friction losses and thereby reduce fuel consumption. However, in the past, damage to the timing belt occurred more frequently due to problems with the oil. The reason is that the engine oil has special additives that enable the timing belt to operate smoothly. With frequent use in short-distance traffic or the wrong engine oil, these additives lose their effect. As a result, the rubber of the timing belt dissolves until, in the worst case, the timing belt tears and therefore causes engine damage. This is why, Peugeot owners should be sure to observe the prescribed maintenance intervals, use only the approved engine oil including additives, and avoid frequent short trips, if possible. When changing the timing belt for Peugeot, it is also important to ensure that the belt is suitable for operation in oil.

 Problems With the Peugeot 3008

Various difficulties with the gearbox

The Peugeot 2008 is available with various transmission types, both manual and automated manual transmissions, as well as automatic transmissions. Occasionally, difficulties or even defects occur. While the manual gearboxes are problem-free, you have to be careful with the automated gearbox. It is not uncommon for difficulties to arise when switching into first gear. On the whole, the models with this transmission are not as comfortable to drive as the classic manual or torque converter automatics. In addition, there are possible defects in the transmission of the ETG5 series. It is not uncommon for a servomotor to give up its ghost.

Now that I know the negatives – what are the positives?

We hope we haven’t scared you off. All cars have some issues that can crop up. There are many Peugeot owners who are quite happy with their vehicle and have had none of the above-mentioned problems. The Peugeot 3008 is available in the standard version and as a sporty GT-Line. The latter features particularly eye-catching 18-inch tyres and a chromed exhaust tailpipe. Overall, you are spoilt for choice, as there are several different models available for you to choose from.

The 3008 is the perfect family car and offers space for at least five people. Of course, it is also suitable for off-road use, as befits a typical SUV. You can really spruce it up with car mats for the Peugeot 3008 There is also plenty of space in the boot, with a maximum of 1,670 litres. The very low loading sill is also worth mentioning. The interior is almost cosy, with carpet and oak trim. The Sports Utility Vehicle is particularly popular as a plug-in hybrid variant, as this is the only vehicle in the series that comes with all-wheel drive. But the front-wheel-drive models were also impressive in rough terrain in the tests. And if you are an outdoorsy person and want to take more things with you for an outdoor adventure, you might want to consider roof bars for the Peugeot 3008 suv.

All in all, the traditional French brand offers a solid overall performance. The manufacturer's two-year service and technical defects warranty was also included in the test ratings which you can also choose to extend.
