Does anyone else have a 3008 1.6 with an auto box? If so, do you have the same problem with not changing up?

In normal use, it changes very smoothly. However, when overtaking and 'flooring' the throttle, the box changes down to (say) third, but does not change back up afterwards for about 20-30 seconds. My dealer confirms that this does happen, but after several visits seem unable to cure.

I'm having very similar issues with the auto box (1.6 HDi).

Often at a junction or roundabout if you try to accelerate as it is changing down there is a 2 second hesitation which may not seen like much but count 'One One Thousand Two One Thousand' as your trying to make it out in front of a vehicle barreling towards you, well trust me it is a long time. However I'm well used to this and don't run take chances being t-boned as a result. We have a 5008 which behaves the very same.

The main issue is that much less frequently the hesitation is about 8-10 seconds long and usually when the engine hasn't fully warmed up fully. Usually in 3rd and the car revs a lot after (although I probably have the pedal on the floor this point).

I've brought it back to the dealer a couple of times. They don't experience the issue on their test drive and I'm not surprised as it only occurs once a week or thereabouts.

At one point the car was slipping out of gear accelerating up hills after taking sharp turns but they appear to have fixed this issue.

Really getting tired of the auto gearbox antics. I would prefer to go back to a manual but the other half only drives auto.

I have had the same problem with the gearbox since I got my 3008 in July...It went in and had numerous downloads which made no difference. It is back in garage at the moment and they are unable to see what the problem is. They say it has had all the relevant downloads that it requires. Getting really fed up as I am starting to get anxious when I pull away from stopping,  as it can  take anywhere from 2-10 secs to change up a gear  . Dont know what to do now as they say they cant see what the problem is Sad  Has anyone got any ideas Question

It’s always difficult to comment accurately without seeing the subject vehicle and experiencing the problem first hand but if your dealer has run all the appropriate diagnostics on your vehicle and there aren’t any outstanding software issues, the following may help put things into perspective:

I have a (12 plate) eHDI, probably very similar to your own, and in almost 2 years of ownership I have experienced the changing up delay under certain circumstances, i.e. when starting off down-hill, mostly, but very occasionally on the flat.  It can be overcome by using the right hand steering wheel paddle to initiate a change upward.

The eHDI has what Peugeot call an Electronically Controlled Gearbox (ECG) but the expectation is that it will behave like an Automatic gear box where transmission is maintained throughout a change in gear. The ECG is fundamentally a Manual gear box fitted with an electronic means of disengaging the transmission in order to change up or down, in other words, an electronic means of operating a Manual gearbox using, by all accounts, a conventional clutch. Whist this arrangement works pretty satisfactorily most of the time there are certain specific circumstances in which, I have found, it needs a bit of human guidance:

The first, as I have mentioned, is starting off down-hill and the second is when approaching a roundabout up-hill.  If you have to slow to a crawl allowing other traffic to clear before you can accelerate off or round the roundabout the vehicle will often stay in second gear which can be too high for that particular negotiation, it then takes one of two actions – it either tries to carry on labouring for a while in second or after sensing the load is too great at that point, it will decide to drop into first with a jolt!  This is easily off-set by using the left hand paddle after first slowing at the roundabout in readiness to take off again.

Finally, if you have the Sport function switched on, the time spent in each particular gear is extended so a change-up will occur later (to allow faster acceleration) than it would without the sport function being on.

Sorry it’s a bit lengthy but it might be helpful to you.

My wife has the 3008 and drives in Auto all the time.  Just yesterday, it started failing on her and she was forced in to manual.  Car would not go, but would rev wildly.  Gearbox service light has now lit.

When I drive it, I often have to use sport to get in to a fast roundabout and then turn it off.

Wifey is now worried about the gearbox service light, we are meeting the garage next week... fingers crossed.
