This happened to my darling yesterday when she went for lunch with her colleagues... At first they suspected that the poor Pug got a dead battery and ask a nearby workshop to clarify it... The foreman opened the bonnet and said that the battery was dead but they dare not jump start the car because of all the electronics and told us to tow the car to the service center...

Once there, the technician took a device and connected it to the battery... 'BAD CELL... REPLACE'... So we can confirmed that the battery was indeed DEAD!!! The mileage is only 20k++ and the battery is dead!!! OMG!!!

A word of caution to all 308 owner be it VTi or Turbo... Please ask the technician to check on your battery once your mileage reach around 20k... I was told that after 20k, the warranty does not cover the battery and the battery itself cost more than RM700++!!! So better be safe than sorry... Besides the battery, remember to take care of your tire also because it cost around RM750 per piece!!!

Haiyooooo where u send the car to. They simply slaughter u. Battery where need rm700 ler. My Mercedes battery so big like lorry type oso about rm400 only. N my 255/35/18 tires oso about rm750 only. How can ur standard small tire cost so much? Don't listen to those blood sucking vampires! Go to another workshop.

Ian - i sent my car to the peugeot authorized service center... they quoted me RM700++ for the peugeot original battery... is a bit hard to buy normal battery because of the size and amp so is better to just stick back to original... the original tires is continental sports contact 3 and i know this is a very expensive tire... but didn't know that is soooo expensive because the size is only 225 and is a 17"...

Celestial: yeah and not forgetting frustrated as well!!!

That kinda stuff nonid go back to Peugeot 1. Authorized service centers r all blood suckers. I only send my cars back to Authorised centers only if there is major warranty claims. Even servicing oso I send to own workshop. They tell u will void warranty all bullshit 1. For tires, next time go to outside tire shops, much cheaper.

yeah i know all of them are blood suckers... but my car still under warranty so i think is better to go back to them lo... what if go normal workshop then they claim cannot claim warranty because i didn't sent my car to them in the very first place... besides that, need to search for a workshop that have the computer to diagnose the car if not cannot service also... as for the tire, i go to outside tire shop... quite close to them some more... so i believe the price is around that range...
