In 2010, Citroen withdrew about 100 Citroen C000 cars from the market due to a brake on the accelerator pedal, following Toyota, which had to do the same with its Aygo series. The failure was that the accelerator pedal did not return to its initial position after the pressure was stopped, or it was very slow to return.

In 2009, the Citroen C1 experienced its first facelift, at the same time as the Peugeot 107 i Toyota Aygo.
The front bumper was changed - a new grille was fitted, the equipment was further refreshed, the seat covers and ventilation controls were also changed, and all models received new colored front bumpers and new wheel rims.
There are also three new body colors on offer.
