Hello, hello, hello!

How are we all doing this fine day ?

My name is David, and I own a small taxi business.

The reason for joining this forum, is because of my taxi business...

Hmm, I wonder why!

I own three Citroen's as Taxis!

Here are the details:

Taxi 1 - 2000 Citroen Picasso 1.9 Diesel
Taxi 2 - 2002 Citroen Picasso 2.0 HDi
Taxi 3 - 2005 Citroen Picasso 1.6 Petrol

All three have been fully serviced and fitted with fresh Michelin tyres, and are running great!

Hopefully I won't have too many issues with my fleet, but if I do, I'll ask for your help!

Thanks! When I first bought the 2000 Picasso I didn't think it was a good choice, but I had my reasons!

Blown Head Gasket
Grinding wheel bearings all round
Speedometer told me I was going 100MPH when I was going 25MPH

And lots more things.

However, when it was all fixed up, I realised it wasn't a bad car!

And both the 2002 and 2005 Picasso's have been very reliable from the word go, with the exception of an ongoing problem with the 2005 model causing it to suddenly loose 99% of its power, then in a few seconds later it goes back to normal!

I think the Air Flow Meter needs replacing, but at the moment it is still drivable, so I'll keep it on the fleet for a while longer before fixing it up, as I've only got the three at the moment, and I'm starting to think I may need to buy a forth, as all three are currently driving like mad, going from run to run, as I type this.

Phew, sitting doing nothing while my drivers do all the work is a tiring job :lol:

Oh, and I've just realised this is a forum for all French car makes! I thought it was just for Citroens! Shows how thick I am :lol:

In that case anyway, I'd better mention I own a 1994 Peugeot 405 1.9 Turbo Diesel with 350,000 miles on the clock, and still ticking on! :)

Oh no! I've owned the car since she was brand new and she's strictly MY baby! I wouldn't let any strangers loose inside her immaculate interior :lol:
