Review
Our 208 XY is less than 6 years old with less than 60000 miles and our local dealers says that the horrendous rattle it has developed requires a new cam chain. All other manufacturers are able to achieve 100-120’000 miles before a cam chain replacement, apparently not Peugeot! Their customer service department couldn’t even be bothered to reply to of complaint.
