Hi
I have a Peugeot 3008 2011 and has done 35000 miles from new.
The day after I bought it, miles from home all the gears went as so did the brakes, a little disconcerting to say the least, anyway cut a long story short the ECU circuit board was found to be the culprit at a cost of £1800 + Vat after that not been a problem for the last four years, however again last sunday all the gears went again and the Peugeot dealers are now saying it needs a gearbox and ECU upgrade, cost £120. If that doesn't solve the problem then it will need: New Release Bearing, Clutch and Flywheel, cost £2220 + Vat, I don't wish to continually throw money at this car and now considering getting my first car back a Lotus Cortina Mk1 which I bought for £15 off my uncle, at least I can fix this thing myself ----- only saying!
Many thanks Ian

never mentioned it needed a gearbox and ECU upgrade, it's an upgrade on the computer system that needs doing for £120.
The rest is going to cost £2620, forgot to mention in my on my original problem that the car in question is a tiptronic vehicle.
