Re: 1.2 manual Gearbox

Post by JamesM09 » Tue Jul 21, 2020 4:34 pm

I recently purchased a used (< 1 year) 1.2 3008 manual. It has the whining noise as described by other in this forum. i.e. between 30-40 mph when my foot comes off the accelerator.

While the noise doesn't annoy me, it is the type of noise that will annoy many and they are completely justified. It is unacceptable IMO.

However I think because many will hear it like I do, it will be hard to get dealers or Peugeot to take action on it until there is a cheap and cheerful fix. I would be very careful buying a manual 3008. Apart from the whine, the general quality of my gearbox is poor - a shame because otherwise it is an exceptional car.

I was distracted by the noise and was losing concentration while driving because of it.
The car simply had to go.
In all other respects I liked the car but I have lost all faith in the manual gearbox. Even a new gearbox did not solve the issue.

I now have an automatic 3008 and am very pleased with it.

hey Robert,

Just curious, did you had it sale to another person, had a buyback or was the lease over?
@James, is not about the 3008's manual gearbox. It's the same on 2008, 208,5008 or Grandland X, crossland or C5 aircross.
It might be just a matter of perception as this gearbox is installed on tens of thousands cars and only few users are actually complain about it.
This might be the reason for which Peugeot doesn't get a fix for it. it's just too isolated on just few units .

I did a deal with the dealership which in effect meant selling the car back to them and buying an Automatic version from them.

Car replacement is a solution to the problem, but probably not all dealers will accept such conditions. There is also a loss in value of the car that must be paid for
