Peugeot 508 Problems

No car is perfect, but we've gathered everything relating to the Peugeot 508 reliability here to help you decide if it's a smart buy.

Why does my 2016 Peugeot 508 tell me to stop the engine while I am driving?

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Sep 2020

Hot engine oil is a normal part of a car’s operation. If there’s a little smoke from the oil when you open the oil-cap on top of the engine, that’s actually reasonably normal, provided it’s only a few fumes and not huge clouds of smoke.

The car telling you to stop could be due to any number of faults or conditions within the car, so the wise thing to do is have it scanned at a Peugeot specialist who will be able to interpret the coded messages the car spits out. The turbocharger could be the component at fault here, but without an electronic scan, you’d only be guessing at the real cause.

508 rear brake pad wear

Answered by CarsGuide 18 Dec 2015

On the estimate of the dealer you’ll have done around 45,000 km by the time the brakes need replacing, which is reasonable. The rear brakes, pads and rotors, are generally smaller than the fronts, which do most of the braking. Being smaller they will wear out sooner.

Peugeot 508 brake wear

Answered by CarsGuide 22 Sep 2014

Most European cars are now heavy on brake pads as they are relatively “soft” without asbestos, but there are aftermarket replacement options that promise much better wear rates and very little dust on your wheels.
