Peugeot 308 2017
Carsguide Contributing Journalist Tim Robson had this to say at the time: If, by some miracle of exchange rate economics, Peugeot can keep the 308 GTi below $50,000, it’s still got a player in the game, despite renewed competition in the hot hatch space.You can read the full review here.

Peugeot 308 2017 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Peugeot 308 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What is causing the oil warning light to come on in my 2009 Peugeot 308?
What you haven’t told me is whether the oil was actually low when the warning light first showed up on your dashboard (and before you topped up the oil). Perhaps the person who changed the oil didn’t add enough oil afterwards; perhaps they didn’t account for the extra half a litre required to fill the new oil filter. Even draining the oil to change it could, conceivably, cause the low-oil light to trigger, and if that’s the case, you need to re-set the light once you’re satisfied that the oil level is correct.
Re-setting this warning light varies from car to car, but an actual mechanic would probably know how to do this, so maybe a quick visit to a workshop to have the light re-set will be worth the small cost involved. By the way, I never rely on warning lights to tell me my engine oil is low. That’s what a car’s dipstick is for. Check it each week and you’ll never run the engine low on oil.Show more
What used car should I buy?
The newest car in the best condition with the fewest kilometres and the best record of service is normally the best. All are good cars and all should give you good reliable service, but using the above the Peugeot 308 would seem to be the best choice for you.Show more
Is there any known problems with the timing chain on the 1.6 petrol turbo engine of a 2014 Peugeot 308?
While they say it never needs to be replaced that really refers to the requirement for servicing. Cam belts do have to be replaced regularly, cam chains don’t, but like all moving parts chains are subject to normal wear and tear and given time they will wear out. To have to change a timing chain at 70,000 km, however, is unusual, and you would suspect that something is wrong. There are reports of problems on the 1.6-litre petrol engine. I would press Peugeot to replace the chain free of charge.Show more
What battery does a 2009 Peugeot 308 need?
It needs to be a 12-volt battery with a capacity of 700-750 cold cranking amps. It also needs to fit into the battery box and have the appropriate terminal alignment. Buy a good quality battery. Any battery retailer should be able to help you.Show more
