Hi guys just bought a Peugeot 308 Allure 1.6 HDI 112 6 speed stop-start.Had it a week and coming home from work i had to brake quick and after that engine management and ESP warning lights remain on,and went into limp mode.Its only done 4000 miles Embarassed Anyway took it to a Peugeot garage who updated ECU software but apparently peugeot technical told them there is an even more updated version imminent.Anyone else had any problems with a 6speed stop and start.Mine seems ok now.This is my first 308,i had 207,s before and 307,s before that,then 306,s and 205,s.

Now done it again,and back in dealers since 19th Dec 2011.Peugeot Coventry and Peugeot France involved.Its plugged into them by laptop.Apparently today a few parts arrived sent my Peugeot for testing purposes only,and apparently are awaiting a softeware update to be loaded on Peugeot server for ECU.Using a 308 Sr rental car for time being as this could be a few more weeks.
Anyone else experiencing any difficulties.

Hope they sort quickly for you, I had a first time problem with my last car a new Nissan took over 8 weeks. Time was so long as they had to make a new computer for it. Never gone wrong so they did not hold spare ones.
Best wishes

PS they at first lent me a Micro after 2 weeks I said I just paid you £15K and here I am driving a Micra so they hired me a Peugeot SW, loved it hence now my new car is a 308 SW. (Learnt later the dealer billed Nissan for £3500.)

Hi Dave they have lent me a 308 SR which i must say is a lovely car and ride.My Allure is a hard ride due to low profile tyres.I asked Peugeot and have recieved in writing to extend the roadside assistance
Peugeot Assistance
which isnt to bad for starters,and when i get the car back when its fixed going to ask for some free servicing.Its been a nightmare as i originally ordered a 308 Active from a internet company in july 2011 and when it didnt come in November i cancelled and bought this car and had only done 357 miles in it:mad:.Never had all this with my 207,s:D.Anyway im hoping it will be soughted but dont know when.Surprised no one else with a stop and start model hasnt posted.

Hi Dave they have lent me a 2011 308 SR which is a lovely ride as my 308 Allure has low profiles so is a bit of a hard ride.Peugeot Coventry have today agreed as a good will jesture to extend my road side assistance for another year when it runs out,which i asked for.

I am also going to ask for some free servicing if i dont get the car back soon,as it went in 19th Dec 2011.All i hope it gets sorted out.
Very surprised i havnt seen anyone else with the same problem on here.P eugeot France have it plugged in by laptop so i think there must be more.

What were the faults, or were you party to reading them.

will speak to them today Dave,but it went in for ESP/Engine light stays on and went in to limp mode the first time.I dont think when they plugged it in they found any faults.All i know is that it has been hooked up to a remote system and Peugeot in France and Peugeot Technical have been involved doing tests etc.I have contacted Peugeot Uk and they have agreed to extend by Peugeot Roadside Assistance for a year after July 2012,as then its a year old.If it keeps happening i am looking at different avenues.Shame as the car is nice,and only done 4000 miles.

Ive heard this, the bigger the alloys the more uncomfortable ride. Makes you wonder why people bother.
aint too bad,pleased i got it back now,more roomy than 207 sport,but not quite the same in fuel consumption.Averaging 50 mpg,on a long run 60mpg.207 i was averaging 58.6 mpg and 62 mpg on a long run.
