Peugeot 3008 Reviews:
I have just spent $5000 to repair a 4 year old car that is 3 months past warranty. The NRMA said "it happens" and they have no way of knowing if it was something that had been existing for a while, or had just happened. They discovered metal shavings in the fuel line and said that if it had been a Japanese car the same repair would have been around $1500. Nice looking car, but no more European for me.
"The Peugeot 3008 SUV is something of a revelation compared with its predecessor. Peugeot has managed to create a desirable and striking family car that will not only look great on the driveway, but it has space for the family, drives well and won’t cost a bomb to run."
I have owned many new cars in my life but this one tops the list! It's just a fun car to drive and so different from the boring normal . Its appearance inside and out is so stylish from the chiselled handsome front to the striking good looking rear. And well inside is just wow! You get so much as standard such as the LCD instrument display which VW or Audi charge couple of grand extra for.
There is truly so much to like in this vehicle you should really check it out ! You maybe surprised.
Styling and Luxury at the very best.
Peugeot's small dealer footprint in South Africa and the negative perception of its service quality still haunt the brand. It will take some time for the 3008 to win over local buyers, but if the French marque can successfully allay consumer fears, then the 3008 will realise its true potential. Afterall, it's an excellent, premium product that stands out in a crowded segment.
Talking about Peugeot's 3008 we must not forget the standard features that have made it look stronger and perfect. The SUV ensures your safety first by proposing several safety features. Everyone has their own experiences therefore, the positive and negative reviews about the Peugeot do not affect my experience with the model. The model has excellent interior and exterior and my experience with Peugeot 3008 is amazing.
