I bought a Peugeot 3008 on 1st november and paid £14, 300 pounds
I was delighted with the car untill I had to drive in the snow when I was driving to work it was sliding over the roads when I got to work it got stuck it would not go into my car park and when I tried to get in another car park it got stuck and I had to get help to get out when i eventually got home could not get into the drive
it said on your paper advert november 26th in the daily record it had grip control I totally disagree with this you I was not told of this failure and I will be informing the daily record of this I feel I have been totally cheated. we went to the garage today who have said we can change the tyres to one's that will grip in the snow and it will cost a few hundred this is a rip off I work in a large firm and I will be telling all the workers how bad this has been and definately not to buy this car unless they fit the tyres for the use in the snow I was adivsed if I want to pay a few hundred for new tyres that are for use in the snow it would cost a few hundres pounds the car was ten months when I bought it and it is the same tyres since new the garage said the tyres are fine that is just how it holds in the snow if I had known this I would never have bought it I have had many peugeot and have been happy with them but i am really disapointed in this car
can you look into this and explain why this car does not hold the road unless you buy special tyres which I can assure you I was not told of this when I aksed how it held in the snow

    We took delivery of our 3008 1.6 hdi Sport last July and were very happy with it until the snow fell and might as well been in a go cart. For a vehicle that certainly looks the buisness belive me it's not.
    My first car many years ago was a vauxhall nova, i kid you not when i say that car was better in the snow than the 3008.
