Citroën Grand C4 Picasso (07-13)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
He likes Citroens - that's the 7th one he's had.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Everyone who's been in it loves it. Seats are comfortable, particularly on long drives. Hugely practical and the fridge is a source of amazement.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes - though I'd feel less anxious if it came with a spare wheel rather than a 'compressor' kit.

What are you likely to buy next?
Another C4 Grand Picasso, or C4 Picasso with EGS. Or a C5 - it's all about the deal!

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£12,500

When did you buy the car?
June 2009

Did you get a good deal and why?
I'm a loyal Citroen customer - of course I got a great deal - it couldn't be matched by any other Citroen dealer that I could find

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Bargain!

What was the dealer like?
Friendly - I've bought 7 Citroens from that dealer now.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Smooth and quiet. The hill-start function is simple, gearchange almost unnoticable and the car is whisper-quiet at 70mph.

What's it like to park?
Not bad at all. The door mirrors are large and there's plenty of visibility through the ample glass areas. Reversing sensors might be nice though.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Not yet!

What's most practical about your car?
Like having an estate but with 2 extra 'emergency chairs' as Peter Kay would say.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I've always like cruise control, but the EGS gearbox is a dream. I can't understand anyone saying that it's not smooth.
