    When I was in Adelaide (circa 2012) Charles St Auto in Unley was good - run by a gwntleman by the name of Stuart if I recall correctly. Good honest service but he was often booked solid for 2 weeks...

    Thanks again halfamill. I have been reading the carbon build up thread too and I will factor in preventative maintenance if I do end up with an EP6 (or EB2 3cyl for that matter).

    Not legally required, but I imagine any warranty claims might be less painful if you had service history from a dealer. I say imagine as I have never bought new before.

    Likewise I'm really happy...

    Excellent points in there halfamill - I enjoyed the read!

    We are waiting for a good deal to come up on a MY17 308 Allure and my plan once the 3 yr warranty ended was to go straight to my current...
  5. Peugeot Australia discussing 8yr warranty with PSA Groupe

    Found this article on CarAdvice. An 8yr warranty was a large part of me considering 2016 run out deals on 308s in January so if this comes in it will be nice!

    Peugeot Australia in talks with...

    Looked at the MY17 Impreza on the weekend and it seemed quite large in terms of length and width, more so than SWMBO wanted. We didnt drive it, but I had reservations about the power and...

    That does look a bit high at the front. I'll check my XSi for you tonight Chris (unless someone beats me to it).

    Hey Aupowerjo. We only do 5 to 10k kms (most often closer to 5k) per year and not too many long or country trips. There also seems to be a $3 to 4k premium on the diesel variants which stretches the...

    Cheers for the info TroyO. I thought Peugeot would have sorted the 1.6 THP issues out by now which is a shame as it is an lovely engine :(

    Haven't tried the 1.2 eTHP out yet but will hold off...

    Agreed - she was too timid. I found there was loads of torque but I was trying to give it the beans a bit.

    I really liked the 1.6 turbo engine - much more torque and far less lag than Golf TSI's...

    Well took the 308 Allure 1.6T out for a test drive and I liked it but SWMBO didnt like the light steering, the lack of power before the turbo kicked in (I said she needed to put the foot down more)...

    Thats what I thought too as it is 2015 AND exec driven. But I called the dealer and they said yes it will come with the balance of the 8 yr warranty (which I will read the fine print for too)!
  13. I have heard good things about the 1.2 but I...

    I have heard good things about the 1.2 but I figured the 1.6 wouldnt have to work as hard. Not too concerned about economy as I only get about 350 to 400 kms of a tank of 98 ULP in the 306 at the...

    Thanks Seasink - I'm sure they have sorted the THP engines out by now too.

    Will have a look and a drive and if the price is right may go for it!

    On a side topic, has anyone gotten a Peugeot on...
  15. Is a 2015 308 T9 Allure 1.6 turbo (auto) + 8yr warranty a good idea?

    Still on the hunt for a new car and we are now considering a T9 308 to replace the 306 XSi.

    The one we are looking at is exec driven with 5000 kms so we get the balance of the 8 yr warranty...

    All good Peter - the rear/blind spot visibility is something I would be willing to live with for the rest of the package too but it wasn't great. It is just the proportions and angles of the Clio as...

    Oh well, Clio has been ruled out now :( SWMBO did not like the interior or the rear visibility. Now considering Megane wagons.

    Thanks for all the advice it was much appreciated (and entertaining)....

    Auto 306's with the ZF box are fine. Mine has just ticked over 200,000 kms and I still drive it like I stole it! But I do get the transmission fluid changed probably every 2 years.

    Lol - the missus drives manual better than I do as she has only ever had a manual 206CC. I only bought the auto 306 as I needed a cheap car quick. But she likes the convenience of the auto now so we...

    Thanks Sunroof & FIVEDOOR, great info.

    So thanks to the wonders of YouTube I've seen many more crash videos now. Now rear curtain airbags for children dont seem that relevant for us, although...

    Thanks all for the feedback so far. From the sounds of things it is mostly positive which is good to hear. Just have to go test drive and size it up now.

    I'm thinking about curtain airbags dropping down from above and being ineffective as kids are too short but how are they dangerous?

    Thanks Dave - I'm in agreeance with you. But missus says may as well get them if we can.

    I havent been on AF in a while, but when I was on it was usually on the Peugeot side.

    As the title suggests I'd love to hear your thoughts, good and bad, on the Clio RS 200 as we are...

    I like Peugeots for their torquey engines and handling. This is based on the 205, 206 and 306 I have driven.

    I have actually started looking for a new car to replace the 306 XSi (which is still...
