Hello everyone,

I am considering purchasing a second hand 2011 Peugeot 308 with the 1.6 VTi 120 bhp engine and an automatic gearbox (this model: and I was wondering how reliable are these engines?
Are the engines on 2011 cars still prone to the common timing chain problem, where the chain would just snap at some point? Or is that a problem on the earlier years 308s only?
Do they really burn a lot of oil? (I have heard horror stories).
Also, the 4 speed automatic, is it a reliable gearbox, or it is also quite problematic?
As a whole, is this car worth it? Or better avoid it altogether?

Any advice is much appreciated.
