We had one go onan old clio years ago, just before we sold the Picasso,Citroen recalled every single Picasso made from launch to 2004 - reason - springs had broken and pierced the tyres!!! Citroen being Citroen did not fit better/stronger springs, they merely fitted "cups" under the springs to catch the broken bit before it pierced the tyre! This was the final straw and nade up our minds to get rid of the picasso, one safety recall too many ( we had 6 during 2 yrs of ownership) and numerous faults and poor dealership and Citroen UK would give Ren UK a run for their money as well.
