I bought this ca this car for my wife. The fuel consumption figures quoted are far fetched and if driven well I can get 50 mpg. Apart from the fuel consumption the car is fantastic, very easy to drive and has very relaxing seating. We also like all the extras fitted as it was a pre-registered Peugeot demonstrator car and has all the nice add-ons.

Initially I was very pleased with the 3008. The driving position is very good and the vehicle's size was plenty big enough. However, at approximately 2 years old, the car developed a fault. The fan belt tensioner apparently had worn out. Whilst no-one can expect the electronic gearbox to perform as smoothly as a conventional torque converter type, I found it to be acceptable, UNTIL....it developed a nasty habit of not automatically changing down. This is most unwelcome when you put your foot down to accelerate away but the car doesn't want to, in fact, can't the way you expect it to. Obviously I notified the Peugeot dealer and find that "it is a characteristic of the gearbox Sir." A software update has done nothing to solve the 'problem.' Thankfully for new 3008 owners, the auto models have a 'better' gearbox. Thankfully as this is a Motability car, given that I have no confidence in this vehicle anymore, and quite frankly, is 'dangerous' at times when acceleration is needed, the 3008 is going back. Whilst there are many positives regarding this particular vehicle, I cannot rate the 3008 auto any higher than 2 stars. Would I buy another one? (no). Or this particular model and year? Definitely not.

I own the basic model called the Active. This car is great, it needed a new DMF at 60k, the cost of repairs are the same as my old Focus to get it done. The car is fantastic, I was impressed when I spilt a drink on the electric hand brake paddle, the car fixed its self after 2 days. In a VW Touran it would have been a £800 job. The spilt tail gate, cool box and interior are impressive and impress all passengers. Being someone who is 6ft6 I struggle to fit in most cars, but with the 3008 seating position being raised I can drive even with the seat forward. Ignore what cars's lame review saying there's little leg room in the back, its not true. I definitely will be buying just 3008s from now on.

This car is the best used car I have bought - Buying it at 14 months used meant I saved over £9,000 on the list price with a good run-in mileage. I opted for the higher spec and 2.0 diesel as I spend a lot of time in the car (mostly M6), and carry a full boot loaded with my sales gear. The tailgate is particularly handy for work, and for leisure, just a 'nice to have' option. What I am most impressed with is it's performance and handling for its size and shape. Much better than its Renault/Citroen equivalent I feel. It's surprisingly responsive for a 163bhp. Automatic gearbox is smooth and engine superbly quiet, for a diesel. My Husband doesn't drive it regularly (I don't let him) but he enjoys the drive or being passenger, more so than his A3 which was bought new at almost double the price of my Peugeot! I've driven many different makes and keep going back to Peugeot Diesels. My last Peugeot I P/Ex at 128,000miles with absolutely zero problems. I keep to dealer services and maintain it as much as I can myself to keep it running smoothly. Things to note - The MPG is on the low side of what is advertised in their brochure, but I save on the parts and services so this probably balances out annually. I've read the previous reviews and agree that the seatbelt mechanism is a little awkward but would in no way put me off purchasing another 3008 or Peugeot. Also, at 6ft I find no problems with the height or visibility either. Maybe that extra 3" makes all the difference ... Ahem

Previous car was Volvo V70 2.4 auto, so the egc auto changes took some getting used to. In fact I am now using stick sequential which is excellent, I select the gears not the car. Other than that it has been very good indeed both to drive and for the versatile use of space. I bought a space saver spare as not happy with a tyre repair kit and no spare. Much cheaper running, tax, and insurance costs, and cheaper to buy than the equivalent Volvo replacement even if not quite as up-market. Road surface sensitive buzzing from glove box area occasionally irritating.

A word of warning about the Peugeot 3008 if you are considering one for transporting a baby. While the safety section of the Peugeot 3008 brochure shows a photograph of “Isofix child seat anchor points” it is not mentioned that they cannot be used for birth to 13kg child seats! The reason is that there is a storage compartment in the car floor, which cannot safely support the stay on an Isofix car seat base in an accident! Peugeot offer three solutions – choose a seat base with a stay that will reach the compartment floor with the lid up, choose a seat base with a stay that can be angled to miss the compartment or just use a seat belt instead of the Isofix fittings! A base with a stay that is long enough or that can be suitably angled does not appear to be available in the UK. Isofix fittings are the safest and recommended approach yet Peugeot recommend the Romer Baby-Safe Plus secured with a seat belt. As the Britax website itself points out - “Only 30% of child seats are installed correctly when using an adult seat belt, 96% when using the Isofix system! A Britax survey showed that even one in five parents regularly break the law when it comes to car safety for children.” Other car manufacturers offer a storage compartment insert to overcome the problem but, as many parents have found, Peugeot do not even want to discuss the issue. New legislation should force Peugeot to take child safety seriously in coming years. It is a great pity as in other respects the Peugeot 3008 has a lot to offer parents with children.

For its size I feel that the economy is good, however tyres will need replacing very soon and servicing is every 12,500 miles - why when Ford diesels are 20,000+ miles plus?

Had my last car 7 years., a very reliable Skoda Octavia 1.9TDI Auto. very reliable mechanically. . A few little problems with electrics. However the 3008 is a big improvement. Quieter,more comfortable ,roomier and an all round more pleasant driving experience.with a more economical engine.( I appreciate this is a more modern common rail diesel engine ) Plenty of room inside the cabin and more leg room for the rear passengers,No lump in the floor at the back where the person on the center seat sits.. I like the boot arrangement with the different layers ,and the drop down door ,giving a loading shelf. All round, highly delighted. Only drawback is in 50yrs motoring,I have never had a black car before. They are a bit of a pain to keep clean.Wish I had got a red one.

WARNING!! Not for tall people. Whilst the vehicle is probably fine for average height drivers this is no vehicle for anyone over six foot tall!! I was assigned this vehicle is a long-term loan car whilst my own (Ford Galaxy) is in for an extensive repair. ~I am 6' 3" and with the front seats right back there is NO rear legroom whatsoever. The car is effectively a two-seater. The door opening shape is awkwardly sloping and doesn't align with the seat if the seat is set back for a tall person. I continually bash my head during the entry or exit contortions. Most of the door space is taken by the dash and steering wheel. If I look right I'm looking at the door pillar rather than out of the window. There is a massive, wide centre console and large a 'box thing' on the inside of the door that intrude into the drivers knee space and make for an unnecessary channel for the legs that is very uncomfortable on a journey of any length. The diesel engine sounds like a set of spanners rattling around in a steel toolbox, but I observe that is a general Peugeot thing. My issues only really relate to a tall driver. Short or average height people should suffer less.

Mine has suffered so many faults I don't know where to begin. It lost radio reception when I used the heated rear screen. After 2 replacement radio systems the fault was traced to the rear screen. The front windscren cracked and was traced to a faulty weld on the framework. Then there have been front suspension faults, which have been repaired twice now under warranty. Mine also has an ongoing problem with DPF regeneration. The temperature gauge fluctuates between 50 and 90 degrees and the cooling fan runs when engine switched off. I've been told that that is normal for a diesel car and Peugeot UK have said that there is nothing wrong with the car. I have also had to replace the brake discs at the front due to excessive wear. On the plus side, it is a comfortable car to drive with full leather trim and heated front seats, but I still cannot wait to get rid of it.

Don't Bother. The semi auto gearbox stays in second gear instead of going into first until you have stopped. This is bad when you need to pull away at a junction had two incidents when other cars almost went into the back of me. Reversing up a hill is a nightmare it is very difficult to do this smoothly. I have traded it in for the new 208 GTI. Now there's a car.

Am now on my 2nd 3008 and it is still one of the most comfortable cars i have driven , and is the only car i have driven from Essex to Cornwall and not got out at the other end complaining about my back. Even with a full car i can still average 50 mpg which is pretty decent , looked at other options before buying current car but tested nothing else I liked as much. Was concerned about Peugeots reliability issues of recent years but between the two 3008s i have owned have clocked up around 60,000 miles with out any problems. And i quite like the ugly front grill !! Drop down tailgate very handy

Brilliant car. Have always had Peugeots bad last car was a Volkswagen Passat I had to go back to Peugeot it was dreadful Volkswagen really can't make electronic handbrakes. However the 3008 Peugeot design electric handbrake is brilliant it's great for hill starts, the diesel engine is fast and refined and the safety equipment is great but I suppose It is a Peugeot (safest car in Europe) so not surprised at all would recommend this car to anyone!

This is a very versatile vehicle; it does what it says on the tin. One reason i went for this model with the egc engine and electronic gearbox was due to the co2 output and economy. I also have the grip control system fitted which worked extremely well in the recent snow although this does benefit from having the m&s tyres fiotted. Once you work out how to handle the vehicle and what settings are best it was very stable. I have a recall on this vehicle to do with a software update so nothing major from what i can see. The only gripe i have and which affects other vehicles is that when day running lights or headlights are on, people from the front seem to have trouble seeing the direction indicators. This is potentially an accident waiting to happen so i have to make sure i an extra aware. Maybe brighter bulbs can be fitted or a change to the lens, especially the side repeaters which seem to be more visible from the rear rather than side on or from front. Apart from this, the rear seat configuration and adjustable boot floor is very useful. Fishing rod bag only just fits at an angle with rear seats down, but it fits. Driving in snow is great but make sure you put the car (if an automatic) in manual mode and snow setting (if grip control is fitted) and driving to wales in the snow was pretty uneventful. The issues some have had with no spare tyre is only on certain models that have (i believe) the amplified ice system fitted as the amp sits in the spare tyre well. I have a full size spare in mine. Being able to drive away without taking the hand brake off is useful especially on hills although there is a few seconds bite on the foot brake that holds the vehicle. A simple version of the hill start/climb system on other vehicles. The higher driving position is perfect and gives a much better view of the road ahead. The head up display works well and does help in limiting distraction when looking at the speed etc. So very impressed.

An absolutely amazing car, and I'm very glad I bought it. The hybrid system cuts in on country lanes and when going downhill. The gearbox is very smooth, assisted by hybrid drive. The diesel switch on & off very impressive. Its a pity they discontinued this model, as its an excellent MPV

It's the first time I have ever owned a Peugeot. I chose top of the range. It's one of the best vehicles I've owned. It has 3 cylinders only. It's a very soft ride and reasonably quite, despite it being diesel. I have had 9 new cars in 11 years. Kia, Vauxhall, Ford, Hyundai, Skoda. I have to say, Skoda Octavia wanted a lot of beating. I didn't purchase a Skoda SUV because no automatic were available. Otherwise I think I would have stuck to Skoda.

I have never had a more unreliable car. 18,000 miles brought an injector failure costing £700 to fix. 28,000 miles was a new alternator at £350. I have just today got a dashboard full of lights informing me that the electronic handbrake has failed and the gearbox needs a repair. This is 32,000 miles. Once fixed it is going.

I had a 2003 Peugeot 206 part-exchanged for a 3008 but miss the automatic wipers and lights from the 206 - I would have thought they would have fitted a 10 plate with them. Got some extras as standard - cruise control, electric hand brake.

Am really surprised by some of the critical comments made by reviewers. Have covered 55,000 miles (now at 75,000 on clock), and the car is great. Isofix car seats fit just fine, mpg is consistently 47-50 regardless of town/motorway, and the only maintenance issue was a leaking radiator hose. Engine is full of grunt but smooth for a diesel. Some negative comments like 'there is no bulb failure light' are naive (it is displayed on the radio LCD display as are all error messages) and comments that the bonnet stay is old fashioned simply made me laugh! The glovebox is small but most other comments seem only to apply to very tall people, storybook princesses who felt seats were uncomfortable!

The 3008 has some wonderful features; the electric parking brake is brilliant and make hill starts a doddle, lovely looking aircraft-style front compartment and switchgear. Storage isn't brilliant; glove box is for trinkets only, rear-seat under floor storage boxes are irregular and useless shape, and their lids collapse when trodden on (they make up the floor of the rear passenger compartment). All doors seem very flimsy, bonnet is thin, has old fashioned manual opening stay and needs to be banged shut to close. On the plus side the two part split tail gate is very handy for kids to sit on and change their boots. The 1.6 petrol version I have is definitely a town car - the engine its noisy above 60 mph and badly needs a 6th gear. Surprisingly for a top of the range model there is no light bulb failure warning light. Most irritating is the very low positioning of seat belt "male" receivers. This is a real nuisance in the front seats and results in knuckle scraping. In the rear buckling up children in booster seats is well nigh impossible. In summary it is a satisfying quirky French car which looks and feels quality at first, but is let down by poor quality materials and some badly thought out details.

I purchased the 1.6 HDI Eco (stop /start) auto 2013 model used with 27k on the clock with FSH. I bought this vehicle after driving my mother in law's 3008 which she has owned for the past 3 years. After driving my mother in law's 3008 and loving how comfortable it was the 3008 was a definite contender for me. I'm 6ft 2" tall and the driving position cannot be faulted. You have a great view of the road and it has plenty of legroom for the taller person but don't expect too much legroom in the rear if the front seats are at full stretch. The drive of the 1.6 auto is great. Gear changes are generally smooth and there is plenty of punch under the hood for a 1.6 diesel. I've only had it for a few weeks but the overall first impressions are very good. Its smooth, returns good mpg and is great as a family car. There is tonnes of boot space especially with the rear seats folded down. The car could do with better storage compartments. They should have considered under seat storage under the front two seats but I'm being picky. The stop start function on the Eco model is very sharp and fires to life instantly when you take your foot off the break pedal, there is no start up lag. The start/stop function is great around town and to be honest it doesn't effect your driving in any way. The drive is superb, very comfortable, great visibility. I'm struggling to fault my 3008 at the minute. My mother in law has had no problems with her car either even after a few years of ownership. She has the same model but without the eco stop start function. My previous car was a 2.0 manual VW Jetta TDI 2009 and compared to this it wipes the floor with it. Its quieter, smoother to drive and pulls pretty much the same despite the drop in horsepower going from 150 bhp on the Jetta to 112bhp. Im not sure how Peugeot have done this with their engines but Im very happy. Build quality doesn't match the VW but its not far off!

I don't think the engine is big enough for this car – it's too big a body for a 1.6-litre engine and is very sluggish with slow acceleration. Also the steering wheel has started creasing and looks as if it has melted under sunlight. I'm very disappointed and don't think the next car will be a Peugeot.

This car was bought one year old from main dealer. I liked the looks and thought it would be a change from a qashqai. Several faults have developed since buying it- some just annoying and some expensive. The first thing was that the dashboard vibrated to quite an intrusive volume on even well maintained roads. Second the drivers side door seal wore away and was replaced under warranty but with the proviso that this would be replaced free only this one time. It wears because the seat is behind the door pillar so the seal gets rubbed every time you get in or out of the car. It has worn again since. The brakes need a change of pads and disc at every annual service even though I do less than 6000 miles a year in it. It is not due to my driving. My second car that does a similar mileage does not need brake maintenance at every service. Last of all and most worrying is that the clutch a completely seized up after only 46000 miles. £1500 to replace clutch and flywheel!! Once again my second car 12 years old has never had clutch so not due to my driving. Its now being traded in and Peugeot will never see one more pound of my hard earned income. Avoid

Owned this car from 6 months old with 12,000 miles on the clock. I use it for work across the south of England covering 33,000 miles a year. This car has been very reliable with very good fuel economy of up to 56mpg. I also use it for towing a caravan getting up to 35mpg. Called in to the dealer and traded mine in with 156,000 miles on the clock got a very good deal on a 65-plate pre-registered 2.0-litre Allure. Would definitely recommend.

I have always admired the 3008 and finally bought one in March 2014 and haven't looked back. It has a great driving position, plenty of room for all and returns a good 45+mpg around town - I've actually managed 58+mpg on long journeys. I've only got a couple of gripes about the car... 1 - When the sun shines, the dash reflects back onto the screen causing a bit of a blur when looking ahead. 2 - The car came fitted with a non-digital radio but hey, I suppose it's my fault for not going for a higher spec model, so I'm sure that there will be one fitted when I choose my next 3008 in a couple of years' time. Overall, I would definitely recommend this car.

Now had this car 10 months, I must say since I had the car serviced after complaining about poor fuel consumption it is now doing at least 44mpg around town, and 55 plus on motorway driving. I live in the West Mids (lots of traffic). I also tow a caravan, between 30 mpg and 35 mpg, so no more complaints at present.

Trading down (?) From an aging bmw 3-series i have been very pleasantly surprised with the car's quality, as have friends and colleagues. I wanted a much more practical car than a saloon, and this car has it in spades. Feels a lot bigger than the old car, but is in fact shorter (although taller and wider). Only niggle is a dashboard rattle (road surface dependant) - yet to be resolved. Took four adults plus a full complement of their luggage to the south of france and back and all rated the journey very comfortable - in fact the car rode better with a fuller load. Economy on the journey relatively good. Looking forward to the next years of ownership if the first year's is anything to go by.

Do not buy read first. Engine either gutless up take to spinning wheels it sounds like someone throwing spanners under bonnet the ride is very fidgety to rocking about , all you wish to do is park up.both front doors have become loose and losing bolts. The brakes are very dangerous in cold weather ice on roads had to brake gentle they locked the brake was locked for two seconds causing an accident it's the way the brakes work on the hill control that works on this model. The seat are not supportive exspecially if you surfers back problems the centre console while looks pleasing is far from it due to seat belt anchor being to low so your scraping your skin on hard rough plastic while also in winter wishing you we're sat in the rear the spilt tail gate is use less you cannot reac back of boot where everything ends when you put on brakes would have been better with a full tailgate , it is supposed to be a MPV with 5 seat ? A load of rubbish please don't waste your money or you can buy this one as it up for sale it not 6 months yet its going!

I've not had this car long but I love driving it. Mine isthe 2.0 hdi which is a peach of an engine, it has 100,000 miles on the clock, is so quiet, smooth and pulls like a train. I'm happy with the fuel economy, 45mpg isn't bad for my mixture of driving. The interior is great, my partner says she feels safe in it and I love the way the dash wraps around the driver. I checked out quite a few cars before I settled on the 3008 and am very pleased so far.

Hitting 45mpg, was hoping for more but it is a large car and I'm running on 235/4518s, servicing seems quite reasonable with our local Peugeot dealer, servicing at 20k but I'll be changing the oil at every 10k.

Very happy with the 3008. The electronic gear box took a little to get used to, but I find it very easy to drive in manual rather than auto. I've had had no problems at all, it's more than capable of reaching the motorway speed limit and very good on fuel consumption. I would recommend this as a family car, there's plenty of space in the boot and the 2 piece tailgate is really useful. I'd buy another.

This car has the potential to be great, economical enough to use as a day to day family car, the boot is great because you can put luggage/large items in the bottom section and I had the dog guard installed so the dog still has plenty of room on top -perfect for camping or driving holidays too. There is plenty of room in the front although the storage is poor- plenty of compartments but they are all small or awkward so pretty useless. The dash is absolutely terrible, it reflects light even on a cloudy day so it can range from mildly irritating to potentially dangerous glare, keep sunglasses handy! The car promises a good family car but in reality can't deliver. Upon trying to fit my child's car seat I realised it would be very hard to find one that fits this car. Many car seats have a support leg which rests on the floor but because of the underfloor storage in this car you cannot use this type of car seat. The only other type of car seat is installed using tethers to tie it to the floor instead but this car doesn't come with anchor points to tie the tethers to! I have also had problems with the brake pads, they need replacing yearly, although my second car I have owned from new, I drive more often and have never had to have brake pads replaced so it's definitely not my driving! It's also had the problem with the door bolts coming loose. Its also so heavy to drive, it takes ages to get anywhere and is so slow to take off. It's bad at roundabouts and junctions. All in all it could be better! But good for boot space

This car is rubbish, warning lights came on, brakes faulty, hand brake faulty, esp faulty. Been in four times with knocking from the rear/side of car. Been told by Peugeot France, after going to level 3 complaint, that it could be spot welds in sill faulty... can't wait for it to go into garage, then getting rid. One dangerous point with the car is, if the sun catches the front screen you can only see the reflection of the dash board and not the road.

Bought this and found out it is chain driven, the cam chain started to sound noisy at 45k miles but a mechanic said it was normal for chains to rattle a bit. It broke down, towed to Pug garage who are the only ones who can fix it. £1K to replace chain = 8 hrs labour. Now water pump noise can be heard. Drinks oil - every 1,200 miles it needs a 1-litre top up - again normal apparently! Not much leg room back and front, although it's a large car. 'A' post door pillar sweeps back very low so you have to duck in and out. Visibility not good when parking. Overall very disappointing.

In nearly 50 years of driving and about 20 cars, this stands out as the worst car I have driven; steering was terrible, car was rubbish, as were the Peugeot dealers who were no better with repairing faults. After nine months my car would not start and I had to buy a new battery as they (including the UK Manager) told me batteries in a new car were only guaranteed for six months. I sold the car at a big loss just after a year. I paid for interior leather and sat-nav but would not say the buyer got a good buy. Glad to get rid of it.

After owning this car for 5 months, I feel I can now honestly comment on it. I replaced a Zafira 1.6 petrol with this 3008, and so far it beats it in several respects. 1. Better visibility. 2. More comfortable. 3. It has a temperature gauge. 4. It has a spare wheel. 5. It is quieter. 6. The clutch is really smooth, compared to the inherent juddery clutch on the Vauxhall. The car feels solid and well built, and the cockpit is a very nice place to be. With the large centre console, it gives you an armrest on both sides - very comfortable. I got Peugeot mudflaps fitted before delivery - a good choice as they ensure the car stays much cleaner and protect the lower paintwork from flying stones. Fuel consumption is slightly better than the Zafira, so I'm pleased on that score. In the last 2,500 miles which the car has done, the overall figure is 38.3 MPG, and I have been doing a lot of town driving lately so that's not bad. I find it difficult to fault this car, but if I had to be nit-picking, I would mention the following. The radio doesn't play for longer than about 15 minutes when the engine is off. The "chipcutter" grille is a nightmare to clean. The front suspension is a bit crude on rough surfaces. But none of that would stop me buying another one.
