2001 Citroen Picasso SX 2.0HDi


An excellent design and idea let down by poor execution and manufacture


The front brake pads required replacement at 13500 miles.

The offside front suspension ball joint and arm required replacement at 13500 miles.

The immobilizer has an intermittent fault where the car refuses to start. This fault remains despite a dealer upgrade.

The dashboard has rattled from about 1000 miles.

The rear washer pipe disconnected from the washer nozzle inside the rear of the tailgate at around 10000 miles.

General Comments:

The car is exceptionally versatile.

It has a good level of trim and comfort.

The engine is very strong and well suited to the car's intended design and purpose.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
