About the C1
Originally sold as either a 3-door hatchback or as a 5-door, the C1 had an impressive fuel economy of 68.9 mpg in its first generation.
Designed by Donato Coco, a car designer also known for the Mercedes W168, Ferrari 458, Ferrari F430, Ferrari 599XX, Ferrari California, Citroen Xsara Picasso, Citroen C3, Citroen C2, Citroen C4 and the Ocqueteau RC10; the C1 offered a trim range that included the Vibe, Rhythm, Code, Cool and the Airplay.
The latter had iPod connectivity, and iPod cradle and a free iPod Nano and colorful swirling patterns. 2009 saw a facelift that coincided with the Toyota Aygo and Peugeot 107, updates included a new front bumper, front grille and new colors.
Second-generation models were launched in 2014 and were shown at the Geneva Motor Show. A new model called the Airscape joined the line up which featured a folding canvas roof much like the classic Renault Twingo and the Fiat 500 convertible.
Following Euro NCAP safety tests, the C1 received four out of a potential five stars overall, with 80% awarded to adult safety and the same again for children.
Owners of the C1 commonly see the same faults occur with this vehicle after a certain age, these error codes can include:

- P0011 – The bank 1 intake camshaft is too advanced and can result in the retarding of the camshaft timing.
- P0171 – There is either not enough fuel or too much oxygen in the exhaust.
- P0161 – When there is an issue with the sensor heater circuit, this error code displays and it means that the oxygen sensor is not heating up to the necessary levels.
- P0138 – The sensor for bank one isn’t outputting a high enough voltage.
