Has anyone had an issues yet? All seems to be going well so far for us which is a positive sign for such a new car! :)

I've done 1200 miles in mine and the only problem i've encountered is the fact that my car does not like damp/wet weather, it doesn't start as quickly as it does when it's dry (it seems to turn over a few times more than usual, but does eventually start). It only affects the start up from cold as once the engine has been started then subsequent starts are perfectly fine with it starting immediately.

I have taken it back to the dealer who have only managed to replicate the fault just the once and in the end they gave it back to me as when the fault was replicated by them they didn't put the diagnostic equipment with them at the time so they presumed with it only happening once while in their possession that the issue was fixed.

My car still does this and I'm planning on taking it back to the dealers but with it being intermittent it's a case of how long they'll be prepared to keep it (which is why i've just been putting up with it).

Mine does the same. Must admit I hadn't thought it was a problem. Just needs to kick over a couple more cranks. I might keep an eye out for it though.

I assume yours is the 1.2?

No, mine is the 1.0 litre but if yours does it as well then I can only think that it must be a trait of the car. The only reason I said it was a problem is because out of all the cars I've had since passing my test 25 years ago this is the only one to do that. In which case I won't bother taking it back to the dealer then lol.

I don't think that sounds right. It must be damp or condensation getting in somewhere it shouldn't.

Mine starts fine, even on frosty mornings.

Brand new cars such as the 108 Peugeot should not have this problem at all. They are built for both the summer and winter months. I would for sure let the dealer know because it seems that it's happening in a few of the 108's.. could be a simple factory fault.

Cheers!

My sentiments exactly which is why I have been back to the dealers already. I think maybe another trip is in order. I might try emailing Peugeot Care first to see if they are aware of the issue and ask if they can tell me what can be done to rectify it which I can then tell the dealer (if they haven't already been told)

That's a good and fair point. I'd be interested to know what customer care say. Keep us posted and good luck

I have a 65 plate 1.2 allure, it has oil in the engine coolant through no fault of my own. Unsure why. Peugeot said i put the oil in there myself. So issue still not been resolved.

That doesn't sound good. The most likely source is the head gasket. It needs looking at sharpish!
