Hi, I've had my C1 Flair for two years now and cannot get used to the dip in engine power when I pull away. Does anyone else have this problem?
From what I understand it is supposed to be normal for this car as a means of saving fuel.

My question is: can this behaviour be altered by tuning, engine software updates etc, etc ........?

I find this so annoying I feel like selling the car and buying something else, pity because I love my C1

Not sure I fully understand the last reply. Are you saying to get the engine remapped?

What year?

I know the newer ones have a flat spot

My 07 c1 is pretty nippy, always has been and no loss of acceleration, always accelerates smoothly

Hi,

I used to have a 2008 C1 and it never had this problem, however this is a different motor with different engine.

What I have noticed is that the flat spot does not seem so sharp with the car AC/Heating system turned off.

Once past the flat spot the engine acceleration and top speed is surprisingly good for such a small car.

When l pull away with the A/C on l need give more gas it's something that l've got used to. It's more pronounced when the engine is cold.
Using my car mainly for short journeys now, l tend not to need it much but l do boy l feel it.
As said it kills my MPG.
My car is 2006

Mine has always done this. I have just accepted the fact it is trying to wring out the fuel economy. My wife can't get used to this. I did ask if there was a software upgrade last time it was serviced and there is not one axailable. My 107 has none of these "characteristics".

Years ago I had a 2 stroke motor bike and just got used to "giving it a handfull " when pulling away, not quite to the same extreme now though.

on a 2006 c1 and now a 2008 107 i have not noticed a flat spot or loss of power when pulling away when we got the c1 first little bug, it was at least a week before i got used to not over revving to pull away, first thought that came to mind at that time was peoples clutch not lasting very long
