2007 Citroen C4 Picasso Exclusive 2.0i 4aut


Good, but this early model has some problem.


Water leaking in the front section at right side. I mean that the inside "velvet" covering part (A-2 pillar) of the right triangle window always gets water after rain or washing.

The 4 speed automatic gearbox could be very old. 4 speed is too less for this engine (2.0i). Also the computer of it is quite slow. I had only automatic cars, but that is less comfortable gearbox to speed up or down in time. The real average consumption is higher in the city than published results. 13,7-14,5!! instead of 12,9 liters.

The engine and the gearbox warm-up too slowly. Until this the car would not react for gas pedal and sometimes drops the RPM to 500 1/min. It is automatic so it is not a driver mistake. Also the electronic gas pedal has big delay.

The lacking of the car body - especially of plastic parts - are poor and not homogeneous in thickness.

Quite big invisible (dead) zone by the left side mirror.

General Comments:

Excellent design and comfort inside. Front window and the panoramic roof is perfect.

The automatic heating / cooling and air conditioning is perfect.

With Exclusive level I got everything which I need in a new car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

At the end I had a grammar mistake. I wrote "lacking" but I meant "painting"

Sorry for that.

Following to visit the local service station the water leaking problem has solved now. The reason was an original manufacturing mistake to make the windscreen placing to be waterproof.

They also managed the vendor's YDH front seatbelt restraint recall for the motorized front seats.
