Reliability of the Peugeot 308

The ADAC breakdown statistics determine which Peugeot models are the most reliable and which have broken down most – a good help when buying a used Peugeot 308.

In the statistics for 2021, all the breakdowns for which the German Yellow Angels had to move out in 2020 were recorded and evaluated. There is enough data available that gives an objective picture of the reliability of the Peugeot 308.
