Peugeot 108 Any problems yet??

Hi all,

Just wondering if any problems have come up yet since owning a 108. I have yet to get one because I like to wait it out a bit. However, i'd like to hear any feed back towards the 108, good or bad

Cheers!

Garage
My favourite points are that it is road tax free and easy on petrol.

The bodywork finish is good and I like the brightwork.

The touch screen information is clear and useful.

Bad Points−
The gear changes (automatic), especially from 1 to 2 are not smooth - the car gives quite a jolt when changing - this was not so on my 307. I shall mention it to Westover when I take it in next week for it's first check.

its nice to be inportant but its more inportant to be nice

you have to learn to drive a robotic manual ( its not automatic) , try backing your foot off the accelerator slightly, this will smooth the changes.

nothing a dealer can do, its a characteristic of the robotic manuals....

What do you mean by robotic manual?

the 'automatic' 108 has the same 5 speed manual gearbox and clutch as a manual 108, it has 3 motors strapped to it, on controls the clutch and the other two control the left and right + forwards and backwards motion that the gear lever would normal do.

cleaver logic in the gearbox ecu controls the clutch and gear selection via the electronic throttle pedal and electronic throttle body... hence robotic manual.

this is the same for the older 107/aygo/c1

Yeah, lets us know what Westover says! That sounds like a transmission problem. Could be something to do with gear timing - maybe some tuning needs to done.

That's interesting, I didn't even know such a thing existed.

Thanks for the info! Explained it perfectly. Seems like a lot of electronics going on with the robotic manual. I wonder if that would cause electronic problems in that area of the car..?

I have had 5 robotic manuals from Peugeot over the last few years, there is no transmission problem... but you learn to drive them and it does take a while to get used to.

if your heavy footed or wiggle the accelerator down it will respond back with rough gear changes and high revs. Once you learn how to use it you will be amazed how good it is....... miles better than the nasty vag dsg and asg boxes!

Well that's good to know! How long did it take you to master it?

Thanks
