A very useful MPV. We carry a medium "dog cage" and my wifes "Buggy" in the back,(side by side).Good long distance cruiser,Comfortable seats (front). Exterior paint finish of dubious quality,(previous Picasso too.!) The auto box,using the "paddles" is good,not so good if left in "auto",it tends to hold on to the shifts too long. My wife has a issue with the electronic handbrake, this model does not have a "P" facility,so, when she has applied the handbrake,leaving it in "R",to then exit the car,( to close our gates,) on a sloping drive, has brushed the accelerator,and has inadvertently released it,allowing the car to roll forward.!! Has anybody else experienced this?,or is it just us.? It has happened to me also.!! The answer is probably to put the lever into "N",but sometimes a lapse in "concentration" could cause a accident! We have contacted the Citroen dealer,who advised us to turn the engine off before getting out,(to close the gates)!! Glad to have got that off my chest!! All in all a good family car,well thought out,and good to own.If you want a "drivers" car though, buy a BMW estate instead.!
