Citroën Grand C4 Picasso 1.8i 16V VTR Plus 5d (2008/08) - Owner Review

The size is better than most rivals & the comfort is second to none. All rear seats fold flat into the floor giving a space big enough for a single bed to fit in, & with the load area being flat it gives extra width.

Living with it

1 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
In a little over a year this car has been back to citroen on 6 occasions! That's approx every 8 or 9 weeks from new. It's had software updates (x2), new pcu, new fuel pump, de-pollution system faults, handbrake faults and failure (x2) & the drivers' seat gets stuck (x2) if the smallest bit of grit or something finds it's way onto the runner.

What's most practical about your car?
The size is better than most rivals & the comfort is second to none. All rear seats fold flat into the floor giving a space big enough for a single bed to fit in, & with the load area being flat it gives extra width.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Good aircon & mp3 player. very light power steering & most comfy seats I've ever sat in.
