Citroën Grand C4 Picasso (14-18)

Summary

1 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Money to spend on a 'con car' , complete idiots buy rip off car , how to lose copious amounts of money on scrap metal.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
That it is dangerous - they are dry relieved that we have purchased a temporary alternative!

Would you buy this car again and why?
Only if Citroen replace the car with a non-faulty vehicle. Otherwise, we're off to order an Alhambra!

Franchised

New

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
March 2014

Did you get a good deal and why?
We thought so but given that we are demanding a replacement due to the vast number of faults I would say not a good deal as it stands.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
To aid mobility of a parent with a back injury and a small infant. To enable our family to grow and the car grow with us.

Driving it

1 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Frightening thanks to the afore mentioned faults. Feels like a gamble of life or death of each journey.

What's it like to park?
Well, our first problem arose on the first day - within less than an hour of owning the car the park assist function failed to recognise a vehicle and promptly failed to brake when the car backed into the other vehicle.

Living with it

1 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
What hasn't! We've been waiting for the 5.2 software update for the tablet and main ecu since October 2014 but still no date for when this will be released - 8 months later. The collision warning system has randomly alarmed and pulled the pretensioner seat belts on - incredibly frightening with an infant in the car. The car has pulled out of junctions then randomly stopped for gear changes all as cars are heading for us. We had complete system failures leaving us sat on a major roundabout with no power to electronics or engine. The list is endless. We have now purchased an '07 plate Nissan Note to use until Citroen replaces our vehicle.
