So I got a Citroen C4 Grand Picasso in Feb 16 and have had nothing but problems. 6 months ago I had engine stop lights come on went to garage, knackered turbo caused by old oil turning to coal in the engine, was advised at the time to scrap it as the problem would just reoccur, unfortunately I needed the car so paid to fix it and hoped to make it to the halfway point so I could VT.
I was literally 1 week away from making the call and sending a letter when the fault light has come back on I haven’t driven it since.
Can’t afford to fix it again but desperately need a car as I have 2 young children
Is there anything I can do ????

Hi Nathan. To VT the car, it has to be in good working order, with no “damage beyond normal wear and tear”. So if the engine’s broken, you can’t VT it (or at least, you can but the finance company will send you a very large bill for the broken engine).
For more information, have a read of our guide to voluntary termination.

That’s what I figured,
Because the garage I took it too said it would keep happening and it’s not worth the cost of a new engine,
I could try and fix it on the cheap get it working and hand it back but I know any future owner would probably end up with the car unaware of the problem,
Or do I inform the finance company of the problem and see what they say
Don’t want to risk them refusing go take it back if they know it’s cream crackered

Hi i have a c4 and sumtimes wen a go to it the back air suspension is flat on the floor any idea

Your rear air suspension springs have a leak. It is about £500 to repair at the main dealer if the compressor is ok. If you keep running the car for months on end like this you will fail the compressor as well which will add about £800 to the bill.
I bought a pair of airbags from Amazon (they were posted from Germany) for £100 and watched a youtube video by a Czech guy who replaced his in his garage at home. It took me an hour outside my house and no more problems since.
