Default Any Peugeot owners??

Any current owners able to provide advise on Peugeot??

Hi bobztoise,
I had my 3008 for slightly over half year.
I'm not an expert but will try to share my experience.

So far, I enjoyed my ride very much, the interior is classy and the 1.6THP with 6 speed auto makes the driving a pleasure.
Small market share is not exactly bad as we have the exclusiveness.

I actually wanted to buy a C5 but negotiation fail and I ended up with 3008.
I'm still missing the C5 till today and I'm sure I'll own one someday.
I'm always checking out this forum but hesitate to post since I'm not a Citroen owner but I enjoyed very much the culture here.

Peugoet and Citroen had many things in common, they shared components including engines. Therefore, I suppose driving any of this isn't that big diff.

Go ahead to post your questions and I'm sure someone here will also chip-in.

the 3008 looks very good indeed

i have been deliberating over the 5008 and C4GP for over a week now
Been to both showrooms thrice
still not sure which way to go

the 5008 drives better but the C4GP has so much more features...

It depends what's your priority.
If looks, go for C4GP.
For driving pleasure & fuel economy, 5008 6speed AT is more impressive.
I'm getting 12km/l quite easily. 5008 should be little more due to it's size.

Actually I love to be in your position right now. The great feeling when selecting new car is hard to describe. You should take your time to evaluate and consider all factors.
Let both sales advisor know that you're looking at Citroen and Peugeot as it will work towards your advantage.
Good luck and happy shopping.

hello sq777,

please don't hesitate to post - you should be sufficiently familiar with and comfortable with our culture by now :-)

bobztoise,

the threshold of the purchasing decision is indeed one of the most exhilarating places to be :-) a warm welcome to you :-)

Hi Voyager,
Thanks for the encouragement.
The culture here is mainly due to your careful nurturing.
Greatly appreciated.

Hi Bobztoise,
Peugeot being the big sister co. seems to have the priority of new engine / gear box.
Citroen is more innovative and adventurous in design.
I bought 3008 because of previous car trade-in price was too great of a diff.
Good to have 2 options so that you can fall back if one fail.

Hi sq777,
Strange cos my understanding is that citroen offers a higher trade in than peugeot
At least that was what I was offered

I'm a 308CC owner, July 2010 car. Love the 156 THP engine with 6-speed... Previous car was 308 THP140 hatchback with 4-speed... the 4-speed was dreadful because it couldn't keep up with the engine response of the THP engine, and the hatch had an average consumption of 9.5km/L... now with 6-speed i can get 11+ easily and if I am well-behaved, i can get 13+km/l.

The only thing i don't like about the Pug is the suspension... Not sophisticated enough. My sis's Impreza 1.5 with front and rear double wishbones rolls less, corners better, has more steering feel yet is more composed on undulating surfaces and irons out bumps better... just that it has problem accelerating decently. Otherwise, I love my 308cc
