Re: Advice for replacing family car
Dave, I'd forgotten the 1.8 petrol - they stopped putting that in the Picasso after a few yrs. Certainly the better petrol engine to have, the 1.6 8valve was a bit gutless and unrefined, 2.0 petrol is thirsty.
I agree about the "facelift" - that was when the "desire" was introduced with different bumpers,trim etc.
Yeah our 1.8 seems OK, a bit noisy first thing in the morning for a few mins, but quietens down after aftwards and is fine. As far as I know Citroen only did the 2.0 petrol engine twinned with an automatic gearbox in the Picasso.
When I said facelift I was talking "Ford" speak, I have no idea if Citroen called the 2003 onwards Pics facelift or not.
