AC fan burns out on ignition and on fan itself. Indicator stalk indicates left at random as it wears out quickly. Sills on both sides rot under the front doors. Looks ok until you press or tap it. Other than that no real problems and it is a handy car. (read more)

Strange car the picasso ! bought ours as a second car and ended up keeping it and gettin grid of the more expensive car when we only needed one.
Its just sooo handy! handlings not great but its a French MPV, great MPG for its size ( 45 local 55 long runs) and I dont spare it!
so many cubby holes you can loose stuff. Ultra comfy - 300+ mile journeys are a joy - Ive had XJ jags and top end Audis worse for long journey fatigue.

Having spent months trying out various seat combinations in our Mondeo we came to the conclusion that with baby no3 on the way we had no choice but to buy a people carrier of some nature. Our 1st choice would be an s-max, but unfortunately way over budget. We began looking at Galaxys but the only ones within our £4000 budget had very high mileage or were looking particularly ropey. We then spent evening after evening researching other options. We found excellent review after excellent... (read more)

The perfect family car! Mine has cruise control, privacy glass on the rear windows, independently folding rear seats, masses of room when seats folded and averages about 42 to the gallon for normal day to day running around and it was great in the snow, (which I was concerned about after owning a Freelander) it coped brilliantly - what more could you ask for!

Could do with cruise control...otherwise best car i have ever driven. Solid, good road presence, good seating position, excellent fuel economy,great on motorways.
i have once carried a three seater sofa and a fire door in it at the same time.
Alloys hard to come by and a bit more gadgetry would make it an ideal second hand MPV. (read more)

I love this car.
It's the best car I have ever owned and driven since 1975.
It's so well thought out. I believe the designers must be driving these cars, and it maybe part of their hobby.
It has all the extras I am ever likely to need and more.
My manager bought one for work, and his wife loved it so much, he also had to buy one for her.
At church, the number of Citroen Picasso owners is growing, 5 so far.
I would buy a new one tomorrow, if I could afford it. (read more)

The Picasso has met our needs for a family car that is comfortable, economical and above all reliable. This is our second Picasso in six years and between them we have driven not only in the UK but also to Spain, France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and Sweden and all without a single fault. The only replacement parts we have had to fit have been tyres, brake pads and discs and the occasional bulb in a total of 90,000 miles. Can't fault that! Excellent vehicle. I only hope the new...

I was prepared to overlook the poor handling and performance for the space and economy, but the mechanical reliability was completely unacceptable. I would be wealthier today if I had simply scrapped it on the day the warranty expired. Overall verdict after 3.5 years of ownership: I wouldn't have another if they were giving them away.

Overall I think that the piccaso is a very good car. Its economical, comfortable and very versatile. Like all modern vehicles the piccaso if it goes wrong can be expensive to repair but possibly not as much as many others. My own Piccaso has now done over 127,000 miles and has had very little replaced apart from what I would term as service items. It is still running like new and I expect many more years service from it. (read more)

The Citroen Xsara Picasso Exclusive is an ideal family car, due to its space, which is vital for large weekly shops. The features are also very good, and include a 12V jack in the back for the kids to run they're Playstations, Gameboys etc from, which reduces conflict in the back and creates a more peaceful environment. I would recommend the car to anyone looking for a family car, whether it's for transporting kids or the elderly. (read more)

I've had my Picasso Desire 54 reg for a year now and have had to take it back to Citroen 3 times. Twice for a computer 'reboot' and once because the fuse went during the winter (there was a big queue of picasso drivers at the dealers that day). My clutch now seems to be slipping, and the cross winds on the motorway make driving over 65mph a white knuckle experience. I would never buy this car again. (read more)

Turbo gone at 55,000. Citroen refused to replace it under warranty as argued that service was not carried out on time. Lame excuse as the Xsara Picasso was serviced on time as displayed on the service indicator in the car. Citroen argue it should have been service according to the service book? Maybe I should have glued the page to the windscreen and not have relied on their digital read out on the dash as you would expect. Citreon, your after sales service is awful and your customer service... (read more)

It is a car with high level of visibility, easy to drive at high speed, enough space for five persons and their luggage, compared with other cars as Renault Scenic or Nissan Tino, as they are called in the spanish market. Other cars as Opel Zafira have a similar concept but not so elegant. The rest of competitors are smaller in all aspects. When driving agresively this model is quite noble and its reactions are predectible. (read more)
