Seven rear tyres, six wheel alignments, and bills totaling £679 in three years were not what John Leslie and his wife, Isobel, expected from their  C4 Picasso.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

 Picasso had (wheel alignment problem)

As a garage owner myself  I think it is fair to say that we do get our fair share of Citroen C4 cars in for various types of repair work, especially for doing repairs after MOT failures.

This particular Citroen C4 was having tyre wear problems, the car had many wheel alignment checks and even had the suspension at the rear of the car reset, but the car continued to go through tyres at an alarming rate.

The Citroen C4 went through different  garages in Scotland and in the end the guy was compensated for some of his problems, but the problem was never cured ?.

Over the years we have all had our customers with problematic cars ,especially cars that wear tyres out, we used to call them Friday made cars, because the men at the factory never finished them off, because they could not wait to get home and the cars were not so good because of short cuts, I am not sure if that happens in to days car factories, but you still get rogue cars that has problems that we can never cure and this Citroen C4 is one of them, the guy would do well to get rid of the car. according to the  Picasso owners club, tyres wearing at the edged area a common problem.
