Hi
Just some info please. I have the above car which I brought from a dealership in November 2016. It was exactly 2 years old with 33000 miles in the clock.
I've had it now almost 6 months and now got 40000 on the clock.
Last month I had some power failure and limped the car into the garage. I can't remember what the fault was but it was fixed under warranty. (I think it was a common fault).

Also for the past 3 months I've had a knocking. I lived with it-being pretty care free as I thought it was the exhaust come lose&wasnt in a rush to drop it in but so many people mentioned it I took it into the garage last Monday and it's actually an issue with the Axle. Which the approved Pegeot garage are saying they are waiting on Pegeot to give a solution to fix it, but will again be covered by warranty.
It's now Sunday, still not heard.

I've just read this seems to be another common fault? So how long should I expect to wait for a solution?? Surely if this is common they should know straight away??

Also, I loved the car, it looks smart and I have a panoramic sun roof. I've never had a poegeot & a couple of prople said dont buy....
So, have I just been unlucky?
Or brought a pile of crap!??? This is the second repair in a matter if months! I don't want my friends to be right but....

I had the axle replaced on mine within two weeks of taking it in.

I have exactly the same problem of broken welds on the rear axle, as you say it is a common problem with the new 308. I have been told by the dealer that just replacing the axle has been found to not fix the problem, so Peugeot have been looking for a solution, apparently this is what is causing the delays. I spoke to the dealer again today, and they are expecting a solution from Peugeot imminently, that will then be rolled out on a long backlog of effected vehicles.

Ok thanks that's good to know. I'm not two months other after diagnosis and still unresolved. I have chased the dealer numerous times. 3 weeks ago they said wait for a recall letter, it will take 2 weeks!
Sunday I emailed Peugeot direct and complained. Guess what - got a call Monday from the garage. Taking it in next Friday letting it sit in their forecourt until they van fix it. Getting courtesy car. Shoddy service in general!
