Peugeot Service Intervals
Petrol and diesel models across the range may have either annual or two yearly service regimes with varying mileage intervals. Most models 2012 onwards require an annual service but it is imperative that you refer to the service indicator and service book for your vehicle. Alternatively, give us a call if you would like some friendly assistance.
For simplicity and value for money, Car-Nect offers a range of Bosch fixed price services. This is a cost effective maintenance plan for cars and vans which takes into account the year of manufacture, mileage and driving conditions of your particular vehicle.
All of the service schedules are based on either time or mileage: whichever comes soonest.
The majority of the latest petrol models are now on annual service schedules with mileage intervals ranging from 10,000 to 16,000 miles. Some examples include Peugeot 107, 108, 207, 208, 2008, 308, 5008, RCZ, RCZR and Bipper.
Some examples of petrol models on 2 yearly service intervals with mileage intervals ranging from 12,500 to 20,000 miles include Peugeot 1007, 207, 407, 508, 5008, 807, RCZ and Bipper.
Models in the diesel range which are on annual service intervals with mileage intervals ranging from 12,500 to 20,000 miles include Peugeot 207, 208, 2008, 308, 4007, 5008, RCZ, Bipper and Expert.
Two yearly service schedules for diesel models have mileage interval schedules ranging from 12,500 to 20,000 miles and include Peugeot 1007, 207, 407, 5008, 807, RCZ, Bipper and Expert.
However, the most important thing to remember is that if your vehicle has two yearly service schedules, Peugeot recommend an interim service alternate years to include an oil and filter change.
As with all modern diesel engines, the latest Peugeot models have a particulate system which adds a cleaning agent to the particulate filter located in the exhaust system. When the fluid becomes low, the driver will be alerted via a dash warning message. The fluid will need to be re-filled, the counter re-set and any faults in the engine management ECU will need to be cleared/rectified. In most cases, a regeneration will need to be performed. However, this will not be possible unless all faults in the engine management ECU have been cleared prior to carrying out this function.
Brake fluid should be renewed every two years.
Air conditioning should be serviced every two years as the gas dissipates over time. However, it is not just a case of topping up the gas, since a service checks that the system is working effectively and that there are no leaks. To eliminate odours, the pollen filter should be replaced regularly (at least once every two years).
Please refer to your Service Record book to check the relevant service intervals recommended for your vehicle by the manufacturer or alternatively give us a call if you would like some friendly assistance.
