Peugeot 308 2013: Is my Allure a lemon?

Asked by William Smith

I have a 2013 Peugeot 308 Allure 2.0-litre diesel hatchback with panoramic roof, front parking sensors, and heated electric seats, which I bought new almost three years ago. It now has barely 39,000 km on the clock, it's been garaged from new, driven by me, a retired teacher, and is in immaculate condition. I love it but it has been in for 7-8 unscheduled repairs under warranty, including front shockers, air intake, front brake rotors twice, tailgate struts twice, LHS electric mirror replaced, new battery after 24 months. Is the car a 'lemon'? If the trend continues when the warranty runs out I'll be up for a small fortune.

We don't have a definition of what constitutes a lemon in this country, but I wouldn't call your car a lemon. Most of the problems you've had could be called maintenance issues, like the battery, brake rotors, shock absorbers, tailgate struts. They're not major issues, more frustrating ones. I wouldn't be trading it in because of your experience. I would recommend that you find a specialist Peugeot mechanic to service your car; you'll save heaps by doing that.
