Peugeot 308 2013: Is my Allure a lemon?

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Apr 2016

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.

Peugeot 308 2012: Failing turbocharger

Answered by CarsGuide 12 Oct 2012

I would think the problem is not an oil pressure problem, but more likely an oil supply problem to the turbocharger. It would be a severe problem given that the turbocharger is lasting a mere 30 km. I would expect that he has changed the oil when replacing the turbocharger, but that would be a must if he hasn't done it. There are no 'lemon' laws in Australia, so you have to battle that one alone.
