Peugeot RCZ R

Peugeot’s Audi TT-rivalling RCZ has always been pretty, but ultimately short on oomph, so Peugeot has beefed up the classy coupe. A power-boosting twin-scroll turbocharger and a trick front differential have been added to produce one of the best sports coupes on the market. Performan [...]

Peugeot 508 GT Saloon

Peugeot has facelifted the 508, giving it a fresh nose and added technology, and this GT version is the pinnacle of the range. The 508 GT is ambitious, taking on the cream of the mainstream saloon crop and even one or two of the premium brands thanks to its extensive kit list, but it’ll have to b [...]

Peugeot 208 road test report

Peugeot has a rich history in manufacturing superminis. Its 205 from the 1980s broke the mould, opening up a new segment for the French carmaker and turning around the company’s fortunes. Not only was it the basis for a hot hatch legend beloved of anyone who drove one (the GTi) and an all-conquering [...]

Peugeot 308 2011 road test report

Peugeot has given the 308 a mid-life nip and tuck, which has the happy result of doing away with the earlier 308’s beaky nose and replacing it with a much smoother look. Overall, it’s a welcome update for the 308’s looks, while under the bonnet are revised engines for greater economy and lower emiss [...]

Peugeot motor home 2012 just 16000 miles A B.S. light on ,no Speedo no cruise control and goes into limp mode when ever it feels like it. Broke down in Spain, 1000 euros to get mobile, half way through France same thing, I to Bosch diagnosis centre, can't read all of the vehicle systems ????? But got going again after 140 euros from back pocket. So here we are in lovely lincolnshire main dealer Hartwell Motors Grimsby, ???? Problem they can't read all the modules fitted to this vehicle..... so here we are SAT at home. Contacted peugeot , what a waste of time , there answer to send me the main dealers postcode, Have emailed them again on a different ref no, let's see if the answer pops up on there screen this time. Peugeot take note if this was a Fiat model, I no they are just the same ,but at least Fiat will have a technician out to you if a main dealer has problems. All for now..? To be continued

Poor radio reception where they say the aerial is in the wing mirror!!. Resolved this by mounting a 'wing aerial' on the nearside front window pillar. Drilled straight through for the wiring which then runs above the glove box straight to the radio. Simple and 100% effective

Peugeot Boxer BOXER 270S SWB DIESEL 1994 - 2002

4 star review

Clutch problems. Heavy clutch, kept breaking the plastic pedals at the top where it attaches to the cable. Had Peugeot dealer change the clutch but still heavy. Went to an engineering firm with a plastic pedal and got them to make me a metal pedal. Still heavy but it doesn't break now. My theory is that the original clutch has softer springs then Peugeot changed to hydraulic clutch instead of cable and made the clutch springs heavier and now these are the only clutch replacements you can get. I say this because I have driven a Boxer, same year, with original clutch and it is as light as a car clutch. Pleased with it apart from that.

5 star review

2001 Peugeot Expert 2.0 HDI van. Owned for six years, driven it from 60 000 to 145 000 miles. Apart from the clutch going a fortnight ago (fair goes at nearly 150 000m) no major issues ever. Has never let me down on the road or failed to start. Maybe average £200 remedials each year at MOT time. Otherwise just fuel, tyres, servicing. Touch wood, good for another 50k+ I'm not a petrol head, just lucked out on this one.

Peugeot Expert EXPERT DIESEL 1996 - 2003

5 star review

I bought a 3yr-old 1997 Expert (non-turbo version) in 2001. I converted it to a camper van and have used it ever since, mostly at fairly low mileage of 5000/yr. It has been an excellent vehicle and is still going strong although now it's 18 years old various things could do with renewing. It drives nicely - the view is great and there is plenty of space. I use it as a van for shifting wood and plasterboard as well as as a camper. We've got a consistent 37-39mpg out of it over 15 years (I don't drive fast). It was more like 40 before the turbo upgrade. 39 afterwards, and dropping off to more like 37 now that it is old. It is now so old that it is no longer allowed into London for emissions reasons. Such restrictions will no doubt spread and I'll have to replace it soonish. It has been brilliant in terms of not going rusty. I have had essentially no trouble at all with rust, although the underside could do with a refresh soon. I picked it partly because I had a C15 for 15 years before that and really liked the ultra-reliable XUD engine. But this one broke fatally after 2 years (the swirl chamber cracked and fell into the engine one inconvenient Xmas day!). I took this opportunity to put a turbo version in instead as is was gutless and struggled with hills. That was a big (5 weekend!) job, but it has worked very well ever since, despite the 'new' engine being even older (1994 ex-Xantia). That is the only major thing that went wrong (I still wonder what the previous owner did to it to cause that failure!). As supplied the windscreen leaked (into the underfloor area, making the foam very soggy) but it got cracked one year and a replacement fixed that problem. The sliding door handles are a weak point. I've broken 2 of them in 18 years. 60 euros for a new one. We love the big flat dash for keeping crap on, and there are flat places to put your tea (very important!) I do suffer from the brake discs rusting up because I often leave it sat around for months between uses (we cycle everywhere day-to-day) - but this is a problem with any vehicle so far as I know. I ran it on biodiesel for several years (when we had a local supplier). But I did eventually run into trouble with 'dieselbug' causing water in my fuel. That required cleaning out the whole fuel system to sort and was a pain. I suspect that was introduced via the biodiesel. Not the vehicle's fault (except that there is no drain plug on the injection pump, so getting water out of it is a massive pain - idiotic design). All in all a great car. Well designed, very reliable, straightforward to fix. Comfortable (for a late 1990s van).

Peugeot Boxer BOXER 335 L3 DIESEL 2014

5 star review

My Boxer is a motorhome. When l bought it at 6 months old the radio workedfine including DAB however after 6 months the DAB was no longer working but AM/FM was fine. I took it back to a peugeot dealer who after inspection and retuning were insistant that there was no DAB channel on this version. I know that l had been using DAB for months before but didnt wish to pursue an argument with the well meaning mechanics. I checked the motorhome brochure and contacted the motorhome manufacturer both of which confirmed that there was DAB ! I am at a loss how to pursue this and why the DAB should disapear .

it is important with these engines to keep the oil changed regularly ignore the manuals and use a good quality (above CF rating) 15w/40 engine oil every three months or 3 thousand miles oil filters are very cheap to if you shop around if you want good Mpg on these diesels stick to this and you can't go wrong our 1.9 diesel gives us 50mpg around town and 55 on a run even loaded up. if we stick to 55mph we change the oil every 3K and the oil filter every 6K

No start when parked on hill ! RAC sent dealer mechanic as busy ? pumped rubber bulb on fuel , asked if pump said probably cheap fuel . Independent pug mechanic said KNOWN problem will require new pipes as rub through out of sight allowing air in to feed £170 all in as two hours work so not back to dealer . Pump bulb to make sure you can see diesel to injectors or you get flat battery .

hi after abit of help, i know my way round cars so im not blind but also not a mechanic. i have a peugeot boxer 2.0 hdi 2002 147k on the clock but full service history in the book. iv owned the van now for 4 months, the van all round is nice everything works and does drive great just to add i used to own a 98 relay 1.9d my problem........ iv worked out my mpg and all im getting is 26.6 average and im basing this on the last 5 tanks of fuel with all different types of driving, im not a slow coach but i dont thrash her, im a plasterer by trade so dont carry much weight at all. generally she pulls ok, but when you push her hard or going up a hill and around the 3000rpm range you suddenly feel the turbocharger kick in and then she pulls like a freight train?!?!?!?! my wife has a picasso with the 2.0hdi in and i know there are a few differences like the cams and stuff and i know the van is more torcq than bhp, but i expected it to pull in a similar way. iv checked vac hoses as best as i can and dont think their split, so im baffled, i thought i would ask her before going to a garage cus i dont really like paying for work i can do and i cant afford to go down a process of elimination of parts, please help thanks stuatrt

4 star review

have only had it a few weeks now and overall am very pleased its got the 2.5 straight diesel engine,sits steady at 60-70 without a problem, the only annoyance is that the engine idols lovely and while there is very little throttle being used it is as quiet but a soon a s you push the accelerator and put the pressure on the engine sounds like its blowing out as in the sound of an exhaust blowing out, i know its not the exhaust, but is it common for these straight diesels to be noisy under pressure apart from that all ive had to do was replace the side door guides which had the wrong ones fitted, either that or the rubber guide insert had just gone on both guides, have had to replace the radiator top mounts as these were completely gone and allowed the radiator to move back and forth and a new rubber mount for the air filter housing, the driver side in the engine bay has had the work done to it as ive read somewhere that this side is prone to rotting as it is a place for water to gather all the above are minor bits and pieces that i felt i needed to replace maybe to feel like i was putting my own input too the vehicle or my own bonding if you like, silly but hey ho, if anyone could shed some light to the engine noise it would be appreciated

As yours is the turbo diesel engine, check your hoses going to and from the turbo, sounds like One is split and pushing air out When the turbo winds up, that would hice a hissing sound under load, hope this helps - from County Down

I posted this review 5 years ago! Peugeot obviously still couldn’t care less about their customers concerns or safety or they would have rectified all the problems on the E7 Expert long ago, but obviously haven’t. Please read on before you make the disastrously wrong choice by buying this vehicle called E7. Tepee or Expert. Posted By Alan on 16/06/2010 12:09 PM I bought the new model Peugeot E7 in November 2007. I would just like to let you guys know just what a pile of junk this vehicle is and you should think very carefully before buying one new or second hand. There have been problems from day one, and at just over 2 years old it has had the following repairs done, some on warranty, but most out of my pocket. So many things are NOT covered on either of the warranties or have a ridiculously low mileage limit. Can you believe these faults during the first 2 years from new, each one bringing you off the road for days at a time? Aerial fell off roof – glove compartment door fell off so did drawer next to it – handbrake cable snapped twice! – clutch replaced 4 times – flywheel replaced twice – anti roll bar joints replaced twice – cv boots replaced twice – air con repaired several times – intercooler leaking oil –engine mount gone – alternator replaced – high pressure fuel pump replaced – rear passengers seat belt kept jamming main dealer gave up after several attempts in the end I repaired it – wheelchair ramp comes out of track, really difficult to get it back in – rear cabin floor is collapsing where not man enough for job and jamming ramp – ramp flap loosened due to fixings not strong enough and plastic cover broken and fell apart - side step repaired or replaced so many times I have lost count – electrics shorted out the rear cabin lights – front passengers door handle snapped off several times – driver’s door window regulator blown – front passengers seat, all adjustment levers broken after just a few months ( they are so flimsy I’m surprised that they worked at all ! ) - driver’s seat completely collapsed after a few months and metal exposed– front dash cupboard doors won’t stay shut – rear sliding doors need several attempts to close them – rear door sliding rail, all paint bubbled and came off – front air vent jammed after first week – both front wishbones replaced twice, cost £1000 ! – rear tailgate won’t open correctly – top box sprung a leak into the meter housing – rear tail light cluster so poorly made that it disintegrated after just 3 bulb changes – pedal rubbers came off after 2 months – the whole door locking system both back and front gone wrong so many times I would need 2 pages to list them all – gear shift lever grommet disintegrated after 2 months – wheelchair clamps do not hold the wheelchair down sufficiently and some users have nearly toppled over on bends where the clamps do not lock down at all, and been recalled several times to correct design faults – rear tailgate is actually plastic. So don’t put any stickers on it or you will have a nasty mess when you come to remove them. EGR vales replaced several times. And here’s the finale…The engine dropped a valve completely wrecking the head and cylinder block taking out the turbo with it after just 75000 miles and out of warranty. Total cost to repair, parts and labour £6500 and 4 weeks off the road. Peugeot and Cab directs response was basically ‘We’ve had your money now please disappear and stop hassling us ‘. It is now my firm belief that this vehicle is so poorly made that it is not fit for the purpose of a taxi. I am a calm driver with 34 years’ experience and have never known any vehicle to be so very shoddily made as this one. And to conclude….I was told at the time of purchase that the PX value after 2.5 years would be approx. equal to the amount left on finance. Our settlement figure is currently £18000 and we have been offered just £9000 PX! I used to say jokingly that if they could have got away with using tissue paper and old plastic cups to manufacture it they would have done….but I’m now thinking that they did just that! - from Hampshire

I get a ching ching ching noise quite loud sometimes when I start my Autocruise Accent from starter ring gear ? Ive taken it back to dealers and left for 3 days and they said they,d started it loads of times and not had any noises when starting.It sounds like a nut going round in the clutch ring gear to me and sounds like something quite horrendous might happen.Ionly use motorhome in the summer and its only done 1600 miles,ive started it a few times since my last trip last October myself and getting a bit worried something might happen to the engine when I start using it in May,.Dealers don't seem worried , said bring it back when it happens again.Any one else had noise when starting, disappearing after 30 seconds.

Have had my 2005 Expert for nearly three years now, just done 100,000 miles, apart from wear and tear it has had the clutch done, windy windows which is quality, 1.9 engine flat as a pancake but once it gets to 70mph it stays there apart from hills, eww (Alan Partridge Quote) become a long drawn out affair, I love my van its a beaut, but I want the new shape, looking at 2011 but honestly starting to get a bit put off by these reviews, don't want a Transporter because every knob in cornwall has one, and i personally feel the new Expert's are better looking than the over rated box van that is the Vdub.

Peugeot Expert EXPERT DIESEL 2004 - 2006

5 star review

My 2006 expert van has 120000 miles on it, fantastic van, it's the 815 peugeot engine so it's not the quickest van but will do 80 mph all day ever day. The thing I love about this van is the engine noise, it must be the quietest van I've ever drove "and I've drove a lot of vans" it really does drive like a car. I also love the radio/cd controls on the steering wheel, really handy and TWO sliding doors which are rare on the astronomically over priced V W Transporter. I recently test drove a number of V W Transporters as I was thinking of upgrading, I love the look of the transporter but it's so bloody noisy, it has like most vans that big ugly diesel sound clattering away like a tractor, I was so glad to get back into my peugeot. Why is the peugeot engine SO GOOD and SO QUIET and by the way NO RUST at all on my 2006 expert, the only down-side to my van is it's looks, it's the funny looking old shape. If V W Transporters had the Peugeot engine it would be the best van in the world , HOWEVER, it doesn't, it has that bloody loud tractor engine in it and I blame all those CAMPER FREAKS for the ridiculous price GO TO A BLOODY HOTEL AND ENJOY YOURSELVES . So now I'm KEEPING my own van because it drives like a car, but I must admit the V W Transporter is "for me anyway" the best looking van on the road today.

I bought a 2007 Boxer to convert to a camper van, the quality of the engine and bodywork appears fine. It has a problem, after a run it immobilises. Give it several hours and it will then start and run perfectly for as long as you want. 5 mins after stopping the engine the immobiliser kicks in and that is it for a few hours. It has been taken to the garage and the diagnostic says there are no fault codes. Would be a good van if it had good electrics!

Me back again, The van has been in the Peugeot garage and a new inertia switch fitted. I was driven home and then immobilised again. I investigated myself to see what the fault could be. I decided on buying a new BSI unit. After fitting this it will not go at all as it needs coding. So it was towed into the Peugeot dealers along with the keycode card on Saturday. As yet they have not got it going. - Les Bell from Cumbria

Me again, the van was towed back out of the Peugeot garage as they could not fix it. The BSI, ECU and keys had to be sent to an ECU Decode firm. They made all three speak to each other and after refitting the van is now running. As yet it has not been on a long journey to see if it still immobilises, I live in hope. - Les Bell from Cumbria

I had a similar problem with our Pilote D45 on a 1.9TD Boxer chassis. It appeared to be an immobiliser problem, but eventually it turned out to be the fuel shut-off valve sticking shut because the van had not been run much for quite a long time. At least, that's the conclusion we came to and it hasn't done it again for nearly 2 years. Let's hope it behaves itself next time out. - Patrick Seaman from Devon

Bought second hand in April 2013, from day one I got blue smoke on start-up, it went back to dealer, under warranty, several times, still smoking, also had front springs and upper suspension joint replaced, again under warranty.I’ve put in a lot of sound proofing on floor in boot area and in doors. Also fitted an off market roof rack and rails, in silver and it looks good. Sewn a leather cover on steering wheel. All this because I cannot afford to get rid which I would if I could, mainly because of the smoke and I only get around 40mpg. I bought this car because its got a great driving position, low tax, handy sliding doors and it looks good. But knowing what I know now I would have waited done a bit more research and gone for the Fiat variation with the 1.3 diesel. But I’ll make the most of what I’ve got hopefully it will see me out, I’m now in my 71st year.

I bought the Bipper on the strength of owning a Partner which was very reliable, only after 26,000 miles I need to have a major part repaired in the suspension. Very disappointed... and expensive.

Bought a Peugeot Expert 57 reg. I’ve only had it 6 months and had nothing but problems: steering rack, anti pollution warning light , cutting out losing power only revving to 2750 to 3000. Seems to me to not be a good van. - Jason from Yorkshire

We bought this car from new. We were in the process of moving home, so we found the interior space with the seats down incredibly useful. As we are retired, speed and acceleration are no longer important. Visibility, practicality and fuel economy are. The £30 a year road tax is an added bonus. In the first year I was regularly getting 65/70mpg, but that was probably down to lower speeds in rural Norfolk. We have carried concrete rubble, sacks of cement, loads of garden waste and logs to be cut up for our woodburner in the back and it still impresses with its cargo carrying ability. We’ve been down to Spain in it and next year it will be Italy. Ideally it could do with another 200ccs, but perhaps a good engine remap would have the same effect? Interestingly when I had the two front low energy Michelins replaced by bog standard middle of the range Pirellis, we noticed a drop in mpg to mid 50’s and more road noise. The interior is pretty basic. It has air con music and drivers seat adjustment. End of. But it’s a great drive, and frankly for the driver who sees a vehicle as a useful and versatile tool not a status symbol, there’s nothing on the market to touch it. Oh did you know that the Bipper, the Nemo and the Qubo are all built in the same factory in Turkey?!
