Guys,

I just bought a 508 2012 1.6 petrol with 27000 Kms, at what kilometers is the maintenance need it? I mean the big ones, like the timing belt or accessory or the transmission fluid.

Also I think is 5w 30 the type of oil, am I correct? and what brand is recommendable.

I live in a tropical country so here the heat is really strong all year.

Do you have automatic or manual transmission?
If you have automatic at 60000 km (even thou they say it's sealed for life). I have never change oil in manual transmission...
Regular oil and filter change should be once a year or 20000 km (I would personally change oil at 15000 km)
Timing belt, auxiliary belt and water pump at 150000-200000 or 10 years.
Any synthetic 5w 30 (or should it be 0w 30, can't remember now) oil should be OK, but Total is Peugeot recommended brand, if memory serves me right.

Hope car serves you OK :thumb:

Hello, mine is automatic transmission.

Thank you, I haven't found a certain answer about the oil, I change it every 5000 kms, due here is a small country, so synthetic is the best, not mineral?

My owner's manual says
Total Quartz Ineo First 0W30 or Total Activa/Quartz Ineo ECS 5W30
You'll find them on Amazon.
Even though I'm a bit of a skeptic when it comes to official use this or use that I think the days of bunging any old oil in cars are over and I'm happy to shell out for the recommended product in the case of oil.
I think there are two persuasive factors, the interval is 20,000 miles or one year which is a lengthy period, today's engines are pretty sophisticated and I'm of the view that they really do need a sophisticated oil.
By way of contrast I wouldn't buy a Peugeot clutch but would source one from the people who actually make clutches, e.g. Borg and Beck or LUK.
