Been some time since I visited this site I still have my Picasso but I bought a Kia Sedona 2.9crdi Automatic. Because I have two frozen shoulders that effected the grip in my hands I struggled to change gear & Steer. Despite the kia being bigger & heavier the steering is lighter & I do not need to change gear.

Took a little while to get used to the size of the vehicle but it is extremely comfy with full leather captains seats Plus roof mount Dvd & Double din/dvd gps unit in the front. It is not as economical as the hdi but has done only half the milage at 62.000

The kia  Sedona forum is not a patch on this one & you are lucky if you get a reply to question.Thought I would pop in to wish everybody a Merry Christmas as I have been a member here for nearly 13 yrs  a got to know many members & hope I helped some as others have helped me over the years.

 

Regards Fartyass

Good to see you gain FA, I've still got my original Picasso too. It comes in handy for short journeys as the VW Caravell has a dreaded  DPF and I don't want it to clog up.

A Merry Christmas to you and to everyone else.

 

Remembered your Housewife yet Lancelot?

You mean the one that I was issued in the R.A.F in 1959?

Hi saw how you tested the cooling fan on picasso tried it and it worked a treat not sure if it should have been on faster wanted to ask you about that and if you know if the heater matrix has a temperature sensor. Lexia seems to think it has and it's faulty. Would it stop air con working. Realise you may not read this but if you do thanks.
