Citroën Grand C4 Picasso 2.0HDi 16V Exclusive 5d EGS (2007/56)

Citroën Grand C4 Picasso 2.0HDi 16V Exclusive 5d EGS (2007/56) - Owner Review

It is immensely comfortable in all weathers. The climate control works from rainy Scotland to the South of France and you and your family can travel for an entire day and still feel relaxed at the end of it. It is a superb cruiser and is economical for its size.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£18,000

When did you buy the car?
September 2007

Did you get a good deal and why?
I did get a good deal because it was their ex-demonstrator and had been loaded with just about every possible factory fitted extra to show off this new model.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I liked it. The wife thought the same. Packed with equipment and ideal for the family.

What was the dealer like?
Very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The dealership is directly owned by Citroen.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It has a high-ish centre of gravity so if you are looking for an alternative to an alfa romeo for windy roads, this isn't it. However, as a long distance cruiser it cannot be beaten.

What's it like to park?
No problems. It is no longer than your average saloon and with the front and rear parking sensors and big mirrors it's a breeze. My model even has a gadget for measuring parking spaces to see if they are big enough and will be 'easy', 'medium' or 'difficult' to park in. I have never had to use it because I haven't needed to do so.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Yes. Quite a few things. These are almost entirely due to the fact that as an ex demo it was not well treated by whoever had it. Bits seemed to have been cannibalised to replace minor components of other such models!

What's most practical about your car?
It is immensely comfortable in all weathers. The climate control works from rainy Scotland to the South of France and you and your family can travel for an entire day and still feel relaxed at the end of it. It is a superb cruiser and is economical for its size.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
There are too many to list but a sample includes the inbuilt TV's for the kids, the huge windscreen, the sat nav/ entertainment/comms/computer pack.
