Default Buying a new 308 Sport HDI

Good evening all, I'm going to look at a Peugeot 308 Sport HDI tomorrow. I'm not sure if it's the 90 or bigger one!

Anyway, is there anything I need to look out for when taking it for a spin? It's got 58,000 on the clock and is a 2009 model. When does the timing belt need changed?

Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers...

The clutch, DMF and DPF (if its a 110) are liable to last 80-110k miles, depending on how its been previously driven and cared for.

To replace that lot wen it inevitably goes South is I'm excess of 2500, which will wipe out any saving made on the lower fuel consumption many, many times over. This is true of pretty much any modern diseasel these days.

Either buy a new or lower mileage one that someone hasn't already had the best out of, or go for a petrol model.

It's also got no character, but if smiling while driving isn't for you then Davie's advice is spot on.

Cheers for the help gents. I went to buy it before seeing these messages, and now I'm happier! I got to the dealer and it had been sold about 20 mins before I arrived. I was well annoyed but after reading your comments I think I was probably lucky

Thanks again for taking the time to reply.
