New Multispace

Hi All

Finally replaced my 2002 Xsara Picasso 2.0HDI, on the second attempt, bought a 2009 C4 Picasso 1.6Hdi VTR+ which promptly died less than a week after I bought it, ECU failure Angry . Hey ho! Shopped around and found this

Cheers Jed

Its great, in fact i much prefer it to the C4 Picasso, That thing was a nightmare Electric Handbrake was like russian roulette, sometimes it would release other times you would just stall.... Nightmare and that was just the start of the problems.

The more electronics get put on vehicles for lazy people the more expensive repair bills get, it's ok when it's in warranty and is just irritating to me, but in years to come cars will be written off effectively because the handbrake broke or the dpf clogged... Madness why anyone would want to buy such a headache to get around if I'm honest (but then ten yrs looking after pugs does make me rather sour lol)

That's why I bought my partner b9 1.6hdi 75 bhp, no dpf, no dual mass, relatively simple to look after and not a headache!

I would never accuse you of being a fool young man.But I would strongly suggest you fill the boot of your Meriva with fire extinguishers. Rolleyes

This is very true, my Dad scrapped a Fiat a few years back, bodywork was A1, engine A1, low miles, 1 previous owner, bought dirt cheap ran for 3 years without a hitch then would not start at all, not firing, eventually narrowed it down to immobiliser fault in Ecu, un economical to repair... Sold for parts.

I predict in ten years time there won't be many cars from the last 5-10 yrs on the road due to prohibitive repair costs to keep em going, computers will mean less classics in years to come I'm afraid!
