Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Citroën Xsara Picasso MPV?
The Picasso is based on the Xsara's proven chassis and mechanicals, so there should be little worry over major components.
However, the suspension and axles are the biggest areas of concern, based on data from independent warranty provider Warranty Direct. Electrics are worth checking thoroughly, too. Warning lights can come on for no reason, but if your intended purchase flashes up lights on the dash, assume the worst and look for another. There are so many used Picassos, you don't need to take the risk.
