Hi all, Our first Peugeot was in 1988, We have had 309s 306s, 308s, 508s, 108, 2008s to name a few models. Currently have a 2008e and a 108 both purchased in 2022. My daughter decided to joint the family trend and purchased a new 2008 top of the range petrol, we have found every panel has flaws, returning to the dealer for inspection both the dealer / paint shop agrees there are faults, Peugeot agree and it went to the body shop for repair at just 1 month old. Today it’s ready for collection, on arrival has the paintwork protection been reapply? Dealer I don’t know ! On inspection we found the work down is worse than it was before. This work has taken 5 weeks and is a rubbish job. We have been told by the dealer you won’t get a factory Finnish on a repainted car, I don’t quit understand how it left the Peugeot factory QC or the dealer QC / PDI it would appear they just want to knock them out and don’t care about the quality, let’s face the facts they aren’t cheap car compared to BMW and Mercedes’ would I buy another one ?

Am intrigued as to why had paint protection over substandard paintwork, or did you make the mistake of having them apply it before you'd even viewed the vehicle?

One thing I'd never do is have any main dealer apply ceramic coating to any car I've bought nd will always pay someone who specialises to do the work after purchase. They take more pride in their work.

So what are the faults, blemishes, scratches, thin paint, overspray?

Marky, I didn't buy my 2008 new, but I am having the roof repainted under warranty. The black paint is peeling off in places and some areas it has what looks like eruptions. Fortunately I spotted it the day after I got the car. I have a mobility problem which prevented me from looking prior to purchase.
