buying a 1.6 308, what should I look out for?

Post by fotobright »

Hi

I currenty drive a 2009 207 SW. Need to upgrade to a ULEZ eURO 6 diesel and was thinking about a 2015/2016 308 1.6 SW.

I just wondered what the common issues with 2015 308's and what I should as the seller/dealer.

Thanks

Calum

ps the car i'm looking at online has done 104,000 and has just past its MOT with the advisors
'Monitor and repair if necessary (advisories): Nearside Front Macpherson strut mounting damaged but not seriously weakened top strut mount slightly worn (5.3.3 (b) (i))'

For an early blue HDi, you need to make sure it has had a new AdBlue tank - or get a grand knocked off the price, as they are a ticking time bomb, and £££ to replace!! Cheap diesels are a bit of a minefield; you only need E4 for a petrol car for ULEZ, I think if you not doing mega miles, I would look for one of those.

Strut top bearings are common failures, and not too expensive to replace.
