For many years (not that long time ago), Peugeot managed to top out the whole bottom end of the reliability lists in EUrope, usually together with the Chrysler Voyager, some older Kias and The VW minivans. Fiat was that slight margin better in those surveys...
That said, improvements have been made, build and material quality of the newest models (esp. the 3008 and 5008) are up with the best, but altogether we are still not talking Toyota levels of trouble free motoring. Will it be better than a Dodge Journey or Foaat 500L however? That is a definite yes....
