Aygo leaks in later 16/17 Reg Xplays?

Recommended Posts

Hi, 

Just need some advice please. I intend buying my wife a small city car. I drive a Yaris which I’ve had for 7 years and it’s been superb; bombproof. But she fancies the Aygo coz it’s slightly smaller. She wants the 3 door Xplay, 16/17 Reg, and we have £5000 to £6000 to spend on it, but my questions are these?

1. Are the Argos of the above years (16/17) still plagued by water ingress problems suffered by previous earlier Aygos?

2. Can we expect good overall reliability? I know it will be under warranty at this age but still don’t wanna be forever takin it to main dealer.

3. Anything to be especially diligent about?

Thank you; any help/advice much appreciated.

Tim

I bought mine new in August 2016 - so 3.25 years old. No water leaks. Only issue was one of the O2 sensors failing - fixed under warranty. Otherwise absolutely fine. 

No reports of water leaks on the Honest John review either.

Thank you. I’ll re-read that review.

Not exactly, but similar, we have a Peugeot 107 (2008) and 108 1.0 (late 2014) in the family, and as you say the 107s etc were plagued with leak problems, thankfully ours has been ok, but has been garaged all its life, which I think makes a difference. Having worked on both cars, pulling trim and seals doing this and that, from what I have seen our 108 has better seals and water proofing compared to our 107, so think they learned the lessons, also as said I not heard of any major leak problems with the new generation of cars.

In terms of reliability, the 108 (1.0) we have had for over 2 years now and it been spot on, no problems, same with our 107 which we owned from new, had no issues at all, to be fair one reasons we got 107 was knowing the Toyota involvement with the mechanicals etc. and thus when my sister wanted a new car the 108 with toyota 1.0 was a first choice, showed her all the siblings, but she preferred the Peugeot styling.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?


      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
