Yes, it needs doing - not had out ours done yet but is booked in for next week. 2 reasons - one it could invalidate your warranty if it's not done and second as a new car it is always worth it being checked over. This is to make sure seals are functioning ok and no leaks etc from bad fitting in the manufacturing process. This has been standard procedure on all our new peugeots and really surprised dealer did not mention it. Ours would have hadbeen booked in before we left when we picked it upbut the service department was clsoed when we picked car up so couldn't.

We've had both of ours done over the last couple of weeks.... It takes about 45-60 minutes and is free of charge.. Perrys of Bolton even washed and vacumed ours for us :)

Yeah, I had mine done last week. The dealer actually booked my check when I picked up the car. Like Mikeyuk says, it takes less than an hour and is free of charge.

They didn't clean mine though!

I'm surprised you didn't know about this as your RCZ would have been the same.... I think it's pretty much standard across all new cars sold

RCZ was nearly new so didn't come across this but came across a load of issues on my rcz.
Calling the dealer this morning to get it looked at. Don't want to invalidate that warenty.
Found one issue my 208 runs at over 90 temp is that normal? Never seen it before on any other car.

We to had loads of issues with the RCZ hence the reason it went

Both our 208's run at just over 90 and I think this seems pretty normal for the model .

It was just starting to be an issue when we traded it in . The list was endless with the other problems we had with it :-0

We love ours... People can't understand how we could get rid of the RCZ for 208's, and don't believe me when I say how much better the 208 is compared
We've had 207's , 207 cc's and a 308 as well as the RCZ and the 208 is built like Rolls compared to the previous models

Me too! The RCZ was OK, not much went wrong with mine, but I could never find a comfitable driving position. The 208 is just so much better to drive.

Your lucky nothing went wrong with yours. I never had an issue with driving position on the RCZ. But I am on the 208 just don't seem to be sat low enough for me but I guess will take time to get used to driving.

Naughty, naughty.

All dealers should mention this before delivery of the new car.
I believe this is a requirement by Peugeot.
Mine did, and it's going in next week.
