Hi All,

Just join this Peugeot family. Good to share some knowledge amongst owners.

I own a Sept 2011 508 Sedan. Car is nice to drive and value for money against Camry or Accord.

However the agent service is not really good. Anyway just enjoy the drive!! Cheers.

Wow..sw is rare find. I think the wagon may be a little softer. Sedan has quite a hard suspension setting and probably because of this, the handling is pretty good. The Michelins Primacy HP is also doing a very good job.

Hi everyone,

I am interested on Peugeot 508. Just wondering how is the reliability of the car and the AD? Any complains so far?

Thanks!

No complains yet so far. I think it is just too new to talk about reliability. I can only comment that the current range of Peugeot are much better built than in the past. Moreover the engine power delivery and Cat A coe favours this car much more than say a Camry.

AD also no need to crack their brains yet since no complains. Smile

Thanks for the information. BTW, how about the FC so far? Is it as good as claimed? 14km/l ?

9.6km/L is showing in my long term FC of about 7000kms travelled. I do much town driving so may be low. But I think if you run more on expressways, 11km/L . 14km/L may be tough.

Collected my 508 about a week ago and simply love the drive. Smooth, quiet and responsive.

So far, everything is okay. I did see some potential issue with low battery life span after reading the FB threads. How's yours, Bro Blue850r? Does it really make sense to carry a spare batt?

hi xenogen,

So far my battery is still doing fine. At one time, I thought it will give trouble since the clock reset by itself. But for the last 2 months, everything is running well.

It is very difficult to predict battery life span as it can varies between 3 mths to 3 years in our type of car. Spare batteries needs to be charged. So no point in keeping one.

If you are alert, the morning first start cranking speed will give you an indication if the battery is weak. Otherwise, using a multimeter to check the voltage in the morning before you start the car can also tell you the health of the battery. It should be above 12.1 volts at least. Smile

Below 12v better look for replacement very soon. Sad

Hello everyone, book a Black 508 Allure and will be collecting anytime from Sep 2012 once I sell my existing car myself.

Hope to meet up with all of you soon.

PS. this is my 1st Peugeot in my life after spending the last decade with VAGs.

Love all the VAGs cars that I have owned in the past many years, started off in 2000 with the Passat 1.8T, followed by A4 1.8T, GTI, A3 1.8T, Passat again, CC, Audi A6, just wanted now to try something else.

And yes, the 7sp dry DSG on many of the current VW, Audi are definitely worrying not to mention their infamous service standard now, haha

In fact, I think the horror stories are usually from VW. Not only their DSG but other parts which are not suppose to spoil. Ignition coil, injectors.....

I have been to VW numerous times but somehow I didn't pull the trigger. Part of the problem is their sales people attitude. angry

I don't appreciate their 'wait if you want to buy a VW' attitude.
