It would appear that a number of members with the later C1 cars are experiencing the same flat spot as me.
It's a pity that it does not seem to be something that can be fixed without the intervention of Citroen.
Shame because it spoils what is otherwise a great little car.

How do i go about getting that done. Town Centre Citroen say there's nothing wrong and that it is normal behaviour for this car.

Find a tuning company could cost between 200-300

Same thing between the 2006-2012 engine was the EURO 4 then with thr 2012 facelift it was remaped to brig CO2 down to meet the EURO 5 engine specs. Same engine though just tuned differently

Will an older ecu work in a newer bug?

Gota be worth a try?

Not sure if the original poster has the 1.2 Peugeot engine, but having just got a 108 with 1.0 engine in the family, it definately drives different to our 107, not surprising as our 107 has CO of 109g/km, but our newer 108 has CO of 95g/km, so they must changed ECU, gearing and/or engine to achieve this.

This showed itself noticeably the other day, going up a fairly steep winding road, our 107 easily managed it in 3rd gear, but the new 108 was struggling in 3rd, so I obeyed the 'shift' light and changed down to 2nd. Also, talking 'shift' light the 108 keeps wanting me to go into 5th gear at times I would never do in the 107.

I'm not complaining, but it just means I have to learn 'to drive' a bit differently, interestingly I knew they were mechanically very similar, but they do drive differently.

My C1 Flair is fitted with the 1.2L Puretech engine.
I have no problem with either acceleration, top speed or cruising speed, just the annoying flat spot when pulling away in first gear.
My personal view is that this engine is much better than the 1.0L engine fitted in my 2008 C1.

Shift lights are a waste of time effort the one on my Civic makes no sense at all

Agree, it didn't take long for me to totally ignore mine, I reckon they misspelt 'Shift', the 'f' should be missing ;)

I have 2010 and 2011 C1's. They are the £20 tax jobs. The 2012 facelift and the new ones were £0 tax due to 99kg emissions. I also have an 09 Fiat 500-when they made the newer one to comply with euro 5 regs (2014)the power was so reduced that they couldn't get up hills-Big watchdog programme about it. I wonder if the same thing has happened here as my older C1's don't have this issue
Mind you, this is the first post i have seen regarding this problem!
