Peugeot started the year 2018 with a large recall for several models produced in the autumn of 2017. Their engines may lose performance, and in very rare circumstances, the vehicle may accelerate slightly unexpectedly before suddenly stops. This issue concerns 2008, 208, 3008, 308, 5008, 508, and Partner models.



Another recall for several models comes in the 13th week of 2018 and covers production from 2013 to 2015 – the production dates for each model can be found in the table at the end of the article. The Peugeot 3008, 308, 5008 and 508 engines may overheat and oil leakage may occur.

The engine control software fault is the cause of the following recall due to engine overheating at week 38. This time the 3008, 308 and 5008 from 2016 to 2018 are affected. In the same week, other recall was added to the Rapex system due to a poorly tightened cylinder-housing oil gallery plug on models 308, 3008, 5008, Traveler and Expert made in April and May 2018.

The most recalled Peugeots were in 2018 the SUVs 3008 and 5008 – both scored seven faults. We also recorded six reasons to recall for the model 308 and five for the 4008.
