Hello everyone looking for some advice I am looking at a 14 plate 2008 41k on the clock for £6200 but have spoke to a mechanic family friend... he has said the engines are terrible for injector problems or turbo issues I don’t use this garage but am just wondering if any one has had any problems or experiences and recommends a diffrent engine etc ?thanks

I have a 14 plate e-hdi and other than the shocks I've had no other problems and I'm at about 60,000 miles with mine.

Jj, the fact he's a mechanic at a garage probably means he only see's cars that are in need of repair work.

If Peugeot sold 200k of these and 2% had injector issues then that would still be 4000 cars...but in the scheme of things a 2% failure rate (or even a 5% rate at 10,000 units) would be great.

Only you can advise if you need a diesel engine, it depends on the type of driving you do and your annual mileage.

My 1.2THP will return over 40 mpg in mixed driving and 48 on the motorway.

Good luck!
