What are the most common faults in a Peugeot 3008?

Here are some commonly reported issues with the Peugeot 3008:

Electrical Problems: Some owners have experienced electrical faults, including issues with the central locking system, malfunctioning dashboard displays, and problems with the car's electronic systems. These can sometimes be caused by loose connections or faulty components.

Turbocharger and Engine Issues: Certain owners have reported problems with the turbocharger and engine, such as turbo failures, engine misfires, and loss of power. These issues may be related to factors such as insufficient maintenance, fuel quality, or manufacturing defects.

Suspension and Steering: Some drivers have complained about suspension-related problems, including noisy or worn-out suspension components, such as ball joints or shock absorbers. Steering-related issues like vibration or knocking sounds while turning have also been reported.

Transmission Problems: A few Peugeot 3008 owners have experienced transmission-related issues, such as jerking or rough shifting, delayed engagement, or transmission failure. These problems may be due to software glitches, sensor failures, or mechanical issues.

DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) Clogging: In diesel-powered 3008 models, some users have reported issues with the DPF, which can become clogged and require manual regeneration or replacement. This can occur if the vehicle is primarily driven in urban or low-speed conditions without reaching sufficient temperatures for effective DPF regeneration.

Some Peugeot 3008 owners have reported issues related to the AdBlue system. AdBlue is a liquid solution used in selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems in diesel vehicles to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions.

Here are some common AdBlue-related problems that have been reported:

AdBlue Warning Messages: Some drivers have experienced warning messages indicating low AdBlue levels or faults with the AdBlue system. These warnings may appear on the dashboard and require attention to ensure the proper functioning of the vehicle's emissions control system.

AdBlue Pump or Injector Failures: In some cases, the AdBlue pump or injectors may fail or malfunction, leading to issues with the distribution and injection of AdBlue into the exhaust system. This can result in reduced performance, increased emissions, or the vehicle going into a restricted mode.

AdBlue Contamination: Contamination of the AdBlue fluid can occur if improper additives or substances are introduced into the tank. This can lead to clogged injectors, malfunctioning sensors, or other related problems. It is essential to use high-quality, genuine AdBlue and follow the manufacturer's recommendations for maintenance.

If you encounter any AdBlue-related issues with your Peugeot 3008, it is recommended to have the vehicle diagnosed and serviced by a qualified technician or authorized Peugeot service centre. They can accurately identify the specific cause of the problem and perform the necessary repairs or maintenance procedures to resolve the AdBlue-related issues.

Choosing a Good Tuner is as important as choosing a Good Doctor.

You will be presented with a bewildering selection of companies, all claiming to be the best in the industry. Unfortunately the industry has been flooded with “Get Rich Quick” merchants all desperate to take your money from you. In many cases the “Get Rich Quick” operators have invested in “Cloned” counterfeit remapping tools off the internet. They have little “if any” industry knowledge, experience or liability insurance…

Don’t get sucked in by a good story and what appears to be an incredible price. Instead of taking the word of self-acclaimed tuning experts, a search on google will reveal some very interesting, yet disturbing facts about a few “so called” professionals. Unlike some testimonials “Bert for Bognor says we are Brill” our customers are real people. Don’t take our word for it, ask the people that know best “Our Customers”

I went for a remap on my T5 as it had an awful flat spot around 2800 rev's I got great personal service and its like having a new engine in the van smooth power and greater economy.... Highly recommended wish I'd done it months ago it would have paid for it self already thanks a lot hills are no longer a drag.

Popped in to see Mike on Friday to have my A4 2.0TDi 170hp remapped. Have to say I was a little pessimistic at first having being told by another firm that remaps on these were a nightmare so was expecting the worst! Thankfully, nothing of the sort, straight in, one error message unknown but Mike worked it out and all done in no time. Straight out for a test run and the drive is very different, certainly mid ranged (where these engines seem to suffer) pulls away nicely and can definitely feel the benefit. Best money I've ever spent on a car in, well, forever! Thanks again Mike

Had the ECU my 320D remapped by Mike yesterday. Very impressed with the results. Noticed it straight away after having it done. Service was also great, talked me through all of it to get exactly what I wanted out of it. Highly recommend mpg tuning.

Took my Civic Mk VIII 2.2 CDTI to Mike following a recommendation from a friend who's had his last few cars remapped at MPG., professional service and answered any questions I had. Customised remap that gave me a good balance between performance and economy. Mike was happy to let me watch the whole procedure and explained what he was doing. Makes a good brew as well! Would highly recommend, Will definitely bring my future motors here.
