Expert Rating

Peugeot 3008

(2017 - present)

    Summary


    The Peugeot 3008 is a medium-sized SUV/crossover, which was launched onto the UK market in 2017 and replaced a people carrier model with the same name.

    The 3008 has received unanimously positive reviews, with scores ranging from good to outstanding. It was the highest-ranked medium-sized SUV/crossover in our Expert Ratings index for more than two years, although its current Expert Rating of 77% (as of June 2022) has now fallen behind the Skoda Karoq.

    The Peugeot 3008 has won numerous awards both in the UK and overseas. It has been particularly praised for its design, comfort, practicality and driving dynamics. More recent reviews have not been quite as favourable as those when the model was new, as the Peugeot i-Cockpit design is not to everyone’s taste and some newer rivals are considered better performers.

    An updated model arrived in the UK in early 2021, which is a facelift of the existing car rather than an all-new model.

    There is a question mark over the 3008’s reliability, however. In a 2021, What Car? rated the Peugeot 3008 diesel 20th in its list of the most unreliable new cars on sale.

    Reliability rating

    MotorEasy logo 600x167

    The Peugeot 3008 has a reliability score that’s just above average, according to data provided exclusively for us using new and used car warranty claim reports from our partner, MotorEasy. This score applies to both the current 3008 as well as previous models.

    Almost two-thirds of all Peugeot 3008 warranty claims relate to the car’s electrical system. The good news is that these have tended to be relatively inexpensive to fix, with an average repair cost of less than £300. More concerning is that a quarter of all warranty claims relate to the gearbox, which is a much more expensive fix with an average cost of more than £1,500. Fuel system claims are also unusually expensive at more than £1,700, although fortunately these seem to be rare.

    If you’re looking at buying a used Peugeot 3008, make sure that any used car warranty you purchase covers all of these potential problem areas.
