Found 9th Feb 2014
This may not be for everyone but saw this advertised at Richard Hardie Peugeot, it is the just add fuel promotion granted it is pcp but for this price it includes insurance and servicing I think it is a good price.

So just insurance and servicing, or the car as well, I am a bit confused... (

it's a lease so it's not your problem if it breaks down.

Link not working, just takes you to the site?

I have a 208 Active 1.0L and its a great little car. Zero road tax, and the 3 cylinder engine does on average 47mpg according to the on board computer. Nice interior and the touchscreen/bluetooth makes the extra money (i pay £190 a month on this deal) worthwile alone: get in the car, press play on internet radio on your phone, and it comes through the speakers automatically!

Based on what, precisely? Top Gear reviews?

We have both a Citroen and a Pug.
Not had a scrap of bother with either, 68mpg and ridiculously cheap to buy parts and simple enough to do it at home.

Far better than the 'expensively built' Rover 75 (BMW engine) that it replaced, which received rave reviews in all the car comics.

The page has been removed it has now gone, a google search of Peugeot. 208 shows it as the top ad but click through shows page not found. Maybe site maintenance or could have been removed, but only heard this adviretised on the radio yesterday so assuming the latter if it does not show up again within the next hour or so I will expire.

A Great Deal, Better with the Peugeot 208 - Range from £9995 and also available on our Passport Personal Lease# from just from £155 initial payment & £155 per month including £750 initial payment contribution.

The Peugeot 208 regenerates the driving experience. With lighter materials, efficient engines and equipment like a smaller, more responsive steering wheel, it brings car and driver closer than ever before.

High technology engines and reduced weight means improved mpg and reduced CO 2 emissions. For example, with our petrol engines, you can achieve up to 65 mpg and from 99g/km CO2 and up to 83 mpg and from 87g/km CO2 with our diesel engines. So along with reduced fuel costs, you won’t need to pay car tax.

The 208 will be available on our unique Just Add Fuel Package so please give us a call to enquire further.

There’s a 208 for everyone

With five highly specified models and eight engines from 68 to 156bhp, there’s a 208 to suit everyone.

is there a minimum age to these promotions ie;- 21yrs

I have the 1.2VTi Active on a lease. The engine was a dog at first but got an ECU software update at first service and now it's great.

Touchscreen is dodgy (think of a French made iPad), however this Access model doesn't get touchscreen anyway, so good deal.

PLEASE dont buy this car,save yourself a lot off bother and buy a mazda or a honda.engines are more reliable!!!

Come on, nobody buys a French car for anything other than the price. Unless it's a 205gti. The only one I'd be seen in

we have a 1.4 208, was just under 18 months old when we bought it, had nothing but trouble with it but it was all stuff that should have been sorted by the dealer before we picked it up, clutch went, needed news brake pads & discs etc, it all got done under warranty but has put me off ever getting another peugeot to be honest. shame as I love the car.

I'm guessing this is nationwide as my local dealer in Dunstable is making the same offer.

Never had a problem with peugeot cars.Put 140k on a 306 diesel no problems at all.
My 'reliable' VW caused me more problems

Good deal

What's the mileage allowance on this deal? 5k?

Have had my 2004 Peugeot 206 1.4 HDI 10 years coming march no bother from blu. All manufacturers can make good cars and some awful. I wish I had bought 2 off blu at start. 107, 000 mile and still going strong. Advice check reviews autotrader apps, but most cars now have too much censors and duhickys to gather faults.

FACTS: in representative surveys with adequate samples French and Italian cars take the bottom places for reliability, Germans such as VW and BMW are mid table and the Japanese have most of the top places (though you may be surprised to see Jaguar up there too and Nissan is not so good!). Of course, your own car (a sample of one) may be much better or worse than similar cars but the fact is that, if you want the best chance of reliability, you need to buy a boring Toyota or a slightly more interesting Honda or Mazda. Only buy French or Italian if the price is so good that it will make up for the hassle! In recent times I'd also suggest taking a serious look at KIA and Hyundai - used to be horrible cars but not any more and the warranties are long.

looking to replace my 2002 307 at the end of this summer when insurance runs out as these deals work out cheaper. 130000 miles and never had to replace anything other than consumables! I honestly don't understand the bad rep French cars get

Based on unpublished, confidential, Europe-wide surveys conducted on behalf of the motor industry but supported by widely published surveys by the likes of J D Power, etc.

That said, there are few really bad cars these days.

I'd rather have a DeLorean at least I can get my time back after it gets repaired.

I have a Peugeot 208 1.0 Active. Had it 1 year now since new. 13,000 miles on the clock and never had any problems at all. Has been very reliable for me. I did read somewhere that on the new models Peugeot had significantly upped the quality and that seems to be true for mine.

Yes, that's another one with broadly similar trends (at least at the top end). These surveys are measured in different ways (eg some measure number of failures, some repair costs, some are just owner opinions) and some are more representative than others. None is as accurate as the industry's internal surveys but they are all good guides. Like I said, there are few really poor cars these days (though some will cost you an arm and a leg to fix out of warranty - notably the Germans).

Of course, some buyers will still choose cars with poorer reliability records because they like the car (Alfa Romeo used to fit this category when they made cars which were fun to drive) but at least go into a purchase with your eyes open.

I would be interested to see how you arrived at the "crap" comment. Is this from owning these vehicles? From personal experience?
I have in the past owned two petrol BX which went to 130,000 miles each, and also a diesel BX that went to 164,000 when sold to a BX enthusiast. I currently own a C5 diesel estate with 131,000 on the clock. In my (personal) experience, this tends to indicate that they are OK.

I work for Peugeot. You can get this deal anywhere if the dealer is willing to rip the **** out of the deal and just chase targets.

However you WILL NOT get this price per month unless you are 30+ living in a low risk postcode area and put down a couple of grand deposit.

The last of the good PSA diesels. Lots of them from 2004 have issues, coincidentally about the same time they introduced DPFs and VV turbos.

Dunno about that, the pre-facelift RCZ is a bit of a looker and shares engines with the Mini Cooper S.

Why does it state £159 deposit and £159 per month know does it state the key word FROM £159

Predictive text sorry about the state of the last post.

I wouldn't take a Peugeot if you paid me the £10k to take it. Chances are that you will spend it on repairs that can only be carried out at a dealership at extortionate rates. The problem is that while that cars look nice, what is underneath is sloppy workmanship and low quality.
