About the C2
Built as a supermini, the C2 was produced by the French car company Citroen from 2003.
When production started, the C2 replaced the Saxo and had big shoes to fill as the Saxo was one of the most popular small cars at the time.
Sister to the Citroen C1 and the C3, the C2 suffered in comparison; where there wasn’t anything inherently wrong with the vehicle, there was not enough advertising put into the project and so it remained relatively unknown.
Despite this fact, the C2 won ‘Best European Hatchback of 2003,’ which makes it even more bizarre that it was one of the least popular cars in Citroen’s lineup.
There were several models to choose from, the LX for example was the most basic with black plastic bumpers and no fog lamps. Other versions included the Furio, VTR and VTS (all sports models) and 2,500 limited-edition GT trims were sold with certificates of authenticity, these had a special sports body kit and alloy wheels.
When put through the Euro NCAP safety tests, the C2 received four stars out of a potential five for adult safety, and three for children.
2007 saw a facelift that featured a larger bumper and a changed front grille.
Where the C2 had its benefits (fast take off, good handling and a quality interior) people made disparaging comments about the styling, which was unfortunate because there were a number of competitors to choose from such as the Renault Twingo, Suzuki Ignis, Ford Fiesta Zetec, Skoda Fabia, Volkswagen Polo or Volkswagen Golf.
Error codes that can display for this car are:
- P0598 – A generic code surrounding the thermostat heater control.
- P0201 – A problem with the cylinder 1 injector circuit, this fault code will trigger the check engine light upon which the failsafe mode is activated.
- P0230 – Meaning ‘fuel pump primary circuit,’ this shows that there is a miscommunication regarding the fuel pump.
- P0302 – There is not enough spark in the spark plug and results in misfiring.
- P2096 – An excess of air and low levels of fuel inside a cylinder, the powertrain control module receives data from the oxygen sensors and creates this code.
