Default Peugeot 3008 diesel

Hi all . Just wondering does anyone tow a caravan with a 1.6 diesel Peugeot 3008 . I had a 2.0 litre model but due to an unfortunate accident it has been written off and I am struggling to find another one . But there seems to be lots of 1.6 litre models available my caravan weighs about 1100kgs. Would appreciate any help . Many Thanks John.

Not sure I would, you will be close to maximum weight for the car.

Engine swap from the write-off?

Engine swap and ecu as a minimum I'd have thought?

Brakes/suspension compatible?

Obviously you have your heart set on another Peugeot, in this circumstance I would hold out for as much as I could get from the insurance company and try another make/model.

I'm open to ideas Chris just like the driving position of the Peugeot and the wife is very confident to tow the caravan with it also . Got a good settlement from insurance so now got to find a replacement of similar type with the higher driving position.
Cheers John

I have a 2009 Subaru Forrester 2.0 litre turbo diesel SUV which has a max tow of 2 ton, its a 4x4 with a higher seating position returns 50+ on long runs and late 30's when towing.

I know of several folk who tow caravans with 1.6 engined Pug Partners, they may be heavier than the 3008 though? Some transport engines as well, one said that the newer 1.6 actually pulled better than his old 2.0 model but you do have to watch your weights of course.

Watch what you buy with 1.6 check service history's are good. These engines suffer with carbon build up in the intakes and in the oil ways, this offen leads to the turbo failing.

To do the turbo is a nightmare you have to replace the intercooler all the turbo pipes, drop the sump and fit a new oil pick up just to stand any chance of keeping the warranty on the new turbo.

Not putting a downer on your choice of car just something to think about

I agree with the above post, those 1.6 diesels need (in a John Cleese voice) "A good thrashing" at least once a week to stand any chance of preventing turbo problems. I rebuilt one a couple of years ago that had just pottered around locally and it cost the owner a blooming fortune, the 2.0 litre HDI versions don't seem to suffer as they don't have the particle filter and also don't require 'pig pee' adding to the system!
