    Default 308 T9 adblue unit price shock

    I wheeled the 308 into the dealer with a "UREA" message. Their computer said the adblue unit needed to be replaced, and they had to order it in. The car has 46,000 and so out of warranty.

    I picked the car up yesterday and was presented with a bill for about $3,300.

    I am staggered at the cost of this thing, and if I had have known, I would have sought a second hand one. (A mate recently wrote his same model off, so I know there is one to be had).

    Has anyone else had similar failures?

    They should have given you pre-warning when it's potentially a bill of that magnitude. I wonder if they're losing repair business from people buying parts online after getting the dealer sticker shock, so they don't tell you unless you ask.

    What on earth did they do? Adblue is cheaper than petrol. You can get it at servos in bulk and in containers at parts places.

    As i remember the unit was about $3000, the rest is a couple of parts and labour.

    Personally i'd be pursuing Peugeot Citroen Australia for your rights under the Australian Consumer law.

    I haven't touched a 308 for a few years now, but as dmccurtayne stated it was a known fault. How long should an adblue tank/pump assembly last? Personally I think it should be somewhere around the life of the vehicle. If you have to replace a $3k part every few years, its not really fit for purpose.

    To not get a call prior to going ahead is pretty outrageous.

    Yeah, I wasn't suggesting buying it, just wanted to know what was replaced for $3K!

    Brodie, I think dmc is trying to assist you...

    there was a recall for the adblue pump. Was this recall carried out on your car? If not, I'd ask about it.

    Unfortunately, there is no such recall for his VIN.

    How is a car with only 46k km on the clock out of warranty?

    I believe it's a 2015 registered car - at the time Peugeot Australia only offered a 3yr, 100,000km warranty (whichever comes first) for passenger vehicles.
