Run­ning costs

Auto Express - - Buying Cars -

ALL RCZS have to be ser­viced ev­ery 20,000 miles or two years. Check-ups al­ter­nate be­tween mi­nor and ma­jor, priced at £140 and £250 re­gard­less of which en­gine is fit­ted. Peu­geot deal­ers also of­fer an Essen­tials op­tion, us­ing pat­tern parts, which cuts th­ese costs to £115 and £195 re­spec­tively.

On top of this, fresh brake fluid is re­quired ev­ery two years (at £49), while the use of long-life coolant means this only has to be checked at each ser­vice; there’s no spe­cific re­quire­ment to re­place.

The petrol en­gine is chain-driven, but the diesel has a tim­ing belt that needs to be re­newed ev­ery 10 years or 140,000 miles. Ex­pect to pay £345 to have the work done, or £295 us­ing the Essen­tials scheme.
