The Citroen Picasso provides versatile, comfortable value for money motoring for the family
The vast expanses of glass regularly mist up requiring use of air conditioning.
The brakes screech when applied whilst reversing (this is something that I noticed on the dealer's demonstrator too).
There has been an annoying squeak and rattle which I eventually identified as coming from the underside of the drivers seat. This was cured with the insertion of some additional foam between the fabric of the seat and springs.
Very occasionaly the vehicle refuses to start first time - often when the engine is warm.
On the whole I am delighted with the car.
It is very comfortable on long journeys.
It returns approximately 45mpg over mixed driving conditions.
The vehicle is incredibly practical with versatile luggage space through complete removal of any combination of rear seats.
The interior plastics are too pale and hard - showing every scratch.
The dashboard causes distracting reflections on the huge windscreen.
To convert the headlights for continental driving requires the purchase of stone-chip deflectors at £45!
I bought the coat-hangers that attach to the front headrests, however they are a poor design and interfere with the operation of the tray tables so beloved by my children.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
