The hybrid running gear that powers the 3008 plug-in has been around for a few years now and is also found in models produced by Peugeot’s Stellantis Group stablemates Citroen, DS and Vauxhall. So far, it has been free of major defects, while Peugeot’s standing with owners, based on recent customer surveys, is pretty good.

Peugeot 3008 hybrid reliability & problems

Based on the 2022 Driver Power owner satisfaction survey, prospective 3008 buyers should have little to worry about. The car finished 13th out of the 75 best new cars to own, while Peugeot as a brand finished fourth out of 29 in the manufacturer rankings. More specifically, Peugeot owners praised their car's styling, build quality and handling, though the data shows owners want the user-friendliness of the brand's infotainment systems to be improved.

Safety

The 3008 scored the maximum five-star rating when it was originally crash-tested by Euro NCAP in 2016. That rating was most recently reviewed and confirmed in October 2020 when the 3008 was facelifted. Individual scores of 86% and 85% for adult and child protection are good, while the 58% safety assist score reflects the fact that not every piece of active safety technology offered on the 3008 is standard on the entry-level version. For example, you need to step up from Allure Premium to GT in order to get the ‘Driver Assist Pack’, which adds adaptive cruise control, front collision warnings and lane-positioning assistance to the mix.
