Default 308 1.2 purchase advice

Hi, I'm new here
I am currently driving a 308 2016 petrol 1.2 130Hp 6 speed Automatic, which is on a lease from work. I am considering buying it as the lease is now over. I have done 45K miles . my question is does anyone know if the car would still be reliable after its third year ? I always do the services at the dealers, on time.

Do you know of any problems that hit the engine/gearbox after a while?

Thank you very much for any information

Peugeot offer a really good extended warranty that might be worth looking in to / considering if you do keep the car.

Make sure its the proper PEUGEOT extended warranty & not one just offered by the dealer group.

I would have thought that after 45k then most minor (and major!) problems would have been ironed out. If you're happy with the car and the price is right, why not?

As you know the car and its service history, faults and repairs I guess if price is right a good buy.
As it had the dealer 3 rd. year service and passed MOT?

Thanks for the quick replies, i will ask about the extended warranty.

yes it passed the 3rd service (Edit: actually it passed the 5th service..) and MOT, actually i got an "engine fault" light before the third service, reported it, then they did the service, but they did not tell me what was the error code. I have to ask them about it.

what i meant with possible faults is if there were any known issues that arise after some wear, possibly things similar to VW's DSG's faults that start to occur after the 30K mark..

See my post of yesterday/today "Engine needs repair - message" might be as simple as mine.

Did they tell you what the error code was ?

I am going to take the car to a pre-buy check-up, for some peace of mind

Didn't ask it arose because of my prolonged idling of the engine whilst updating the maps, think it would be with nasties in the emission system, I just wanted the error messages stopping.
I guess if not due to the idling then they will appear again but I'm doubtful I have a problem from advice given here.

The only thing you should worry about is the crumbling timing belt syndrome.
Read the thread about it .
A simple peek can tell you it's condition and whether you should replace it before 100Kkm.

I would suspect a car with a full Peugeot main dealer service history would be looked at favourably in the event of the crumbling timing belt issue.
