I originally posted this in what I thought was a relevant thread, but it appears I was mistaken - Sorry Beau. I hope that by starting a new thread it does not offend anyone else.


I ordered a new 3008 last week and when I was deciding what extras I would like/could afford I noticed on the Peugeot website car configurator that as well as showing the all up cost it also showed the availability in weeks. Does anyone know how accurate this prediction of availability is?

Thanks Jim for starting a new thread :thumb:, (and am not offended whatsoever).

We have a thread running regarding delivery updates located at, http://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/3008-2017-138/delivery-updates-281098/ however it doesn't say how accurate they were to the online predictor which is your question.

The predictor when I ordered mine was 12 weeks from order received....got it 20 weeks later.

However, that was when Peugeot were caught out with the popularity of the new car and have since doubled production at the factory.

As far as I've seen it's a pretty good representation for orders through the website and Peugeot owned dealers (Robins and Day)

It doesn't represent group stock i.e. cars a specific dealer has sitting on forecourts or in lockups.

For the longer time periods (over 6 weeks), it should be a reasonable estimate of what will need to be factory ordered and how long it'll take as, generally, anything with greater wait time most dealers won't have in stock either. This is particularly when you start to deviate from standard trim and less popular options

Did availability of extras determine your choices?

Nah not one bit. My wife is on the smaller side (5 foot 2 inches) and she struggles to shut the tailgate on my present car so a powered tailgate was #1 on the list of extras. #2 was a panoramic roof (another wife request) #3 was adaptive cruise control (My option). So it was Wife 2 and me 1 :)

That takes me back! At one stage I seem to remember the GT was showing 24 weeks on the configurator. As Beau says that was early on and soon after the fire in the Belgian owned trim factory. I would imagine Peugeot have now had plenty of time and experience to get their figures close to reality.

I certainly hope so or else I will have to get my existing car serviced, mot and insurance paid for which I am trying to avoid even though the service is a free one and there is no reason I can think off for it to fail it’s mot. It is just the inconvenience of an hours drive to the dealers and an hour to return.

Our order (from Denmark) was around 26th of January, we are being told that the car will be build around 16th of April (unconfirmed).

Delivery will be 4-6 weeks from then.

So, the (unconfirmed) optimistic current delivery date will be 11 weeks from order.

Which is exactly what the configurator tells me too.

My first GT Line was ordered Feb 2017 and it's replacement in June 2017. Both had predictions of 9 weeks and both arrived on time.

I am really pleased that the 'predictor' appears to be correct - I just hope it is in my case and I take delivery of my 3008 around the 20th May :)

The online predictor is totally innacurate. I had a conversation with Peugeot via Facebook the other day. I was quoted 2 weeks online and 12 weeks by the dealership. This was for a GT Line 1.6 Auto. I will attach a screenshot of the conversation. You can see there response to the quoted timescale.

That does not look good for me Meerkat. I also have ordered a GT Line 1.6 Auto but the dealer quoted me 8 weeks to delivery (Verbally at the point of ordering) while the predictor stated 7 weeks. I suppose I can only wait now but I was hoping for 7-8 weeks to save me the hassle of having my present car serviced/MOT/ taxed plus insuring for what could end up being 4 or 5 weeks.

12 weeks seems to be a magic figure, that's what I was quoted for my two previous Ford Focuses which was almost spot on and what I was told by the salesman when I ordered my 3008. That ended up taking 15 weeks but this was due to the apparent unexpected popularity of the car and production delays caused by a fire in an accessory factory. I would say if you take delivery 7-8 weeks from order date for a factory built car, you are doing very well.
