The vw diesels are as troublesome. I had a transporter other day with a dropped valve. You'll not see a peugeot diesel do that. I'd have a peugeot diesel any day over them.

Had the same spec 307 not a problem.. Only had the problems since it has been in dealers.... happy with 308 great value for money just peeved at Peugeot customer service nearly £100 for diagnostic????
Surly if you pay £XX thousands for a car they should have the courtesy to plug the car into a computer and tell you what is wrong for free!!!!

Except plugging the car in alone won't necessarily tell you what's wrong. They'll tell you what sensors are returning out-of-parameter readings, but not why. Are the sensors genuinely recording a problem? Or is the sensor faulty? Or is something else entirely wrong that is causing the sensor to read a false measurement? This perception that "a diagnostic" involves plugging in a computer that instantly tells you what's at fault come what may while the technician skives with a cuppa and a Benson for the other 59 minutes in the hour is little short of hilarious.

Guys like Dave train for years to be able to "diagnose" problems, yet compared to a Solicitor who will have trained for a similar amount of time you're getting bloody good value.

When you can diagnose better for £100, while paying for premises, tax, wages etc, and still make a profit then we'll take notice.

???? But that's what they did... Plugged in, left my car outside and left it to force regenerate, cleared faults then sent me on my way... took a mechanic 5 mins???

I understand there are overheads but charging so much for so little is well just daft ..... and dealers wounder why people choose independent garages?????

VALUE FOR MONEY

So you let them charge you a ton for 5 minutes (as you say) work? £1200 an hour? Who's the bigger fool...?

Still, you know so much you could always do it yourself, like some of us do.

Have to say that whenever I went to my local Peugeot dealer for a diagnostic they always did a complete around the car check (like an MOT) as well as reading the faults and always found it good value for money.

The diagnostic never cost me more than £45 as I get a discount for taking any car that I purchase into them. £100 for a diagnostic & forced regen sounds about right to me.

Thats because they are looking for other things to charge you for, not out of the goodness of their hearts.

Not at all, every time my cars went in they were explicitly told that any faults found would be repaired by the dealer whom I purchased the car from so there was never any money in it for them. Peugeot has never had any money from me due to faults found from a diagnostic.

If you take time to build a rapport with a mechanic/ dealership you will usually find that they will treat you with the respect you deserve.
