(17th July 2018) 2014 Peugeot 5008 Diesel Manual MPV by Peugeot2018
Purchased this car a few months ago and we are happy that we purchsed this car. The driving experience is good, it goes round conners better than its sister car the Citroen C4 Grand Picasso becuase of slightly firmer suspension, but dont worry that firm suspension dosent make the ride uncomfortable. Not to say its sporty, its nowere near the sporty drive of a Ford S-Max. Beware if your going for a 1.6 HDi Engine if your coing from a 2.0 or 2,2 engine because its takes a bit of getting used to, its noticeable when your overtaking or pulling out of junctions and roundabouts.The seats are comfortable and suportive great if you have a bad back and also its very easy to get in and out which is great for people who would have a disability. Running cost are astonishing compared to our old Toyota Verso, we have been averaging 57.8 Mpg on the motorway it would average 62.5 mpg or even our highest yet of 68,8 Mpg which is amazing for a 7 seater. Tax is £120 Per Year compared to the Toyota £270 Per Year. For a Peugeot there is an air of quailty in the interior of the 5008, its definatley up there with Volkswagen and Audi quality its miles away from Peugeots of old so Build Quality is exceptional. So Far reliability is good no minor or serious problems so far, The 5008 has a good reputation for reliability so there is no need to worry about serious problems. Only one thing, you must Service Every 10,000 Miles and Service History is a must if you are buying a 5008 because if there is little or no service history then walk away because that car could have had a rough life and could cause problems for you. For me i love this car and i highly reccomend it for its space, comfort and running costs. If iam being honest if you want something sporty and fun go for the Ford S-Max. Or A bit of French Flair Renault Grand Scenic or soething with a bit of luxuary go for the Volkswagen Touran. But if you want an MPV with a slice of everything that does everything it needs, then go for the Peugeot 5008 :)

My husband and i purchased our 5008 from ROADSIDE MOTORS in LISBURN last year. We couldnt be any happier with it, it gets us around 50mpg on average and we taxed it last week for only £115! Compared to our last 7 seater the savings are incredible, and its like driving a car rather that a big bus. My kids love it and so do we. Very nice to drive and no problems with it so far. Roadside Motors in Lisburn were very good to deal with and i definitely recommend them.
