Inside Line: Cambiare

by

Citroën C1, Peugeot 107 & Toyota Aygo 2005

The models are basically the same car, introduced around 2005, as a collaborative effort between Peugeot, Citroën and Toyota.

There isn’t much out there on these models and they seem to have been fairly reliable. There are no VOSA recalls for product issues that are safety related. Customers only seem to complain about premature wear of the clutch and leaking water pumps, but these problems are not so numerous.

Oil pressure switches are a big seller for Cambiare, making up 42 percent of the top ten selling parts for these cars. Technicians looking to trace oil leaks should start here. An alternative reason for replacement is due to a failing electronic switch which may prevent the driver being warned of low engine oil pressure and result in a costly engine repair job.

Ignition coils come in joint 2nd place in the Cambiare sales top ten for these cars at 21 percent, being fitted to resolve poor starting or misfires.

Engine management cooling temperature sensors come in joint second at 21 percent for Cambiare. Failure of this sensor will result in poor running, difficult hot or cold starting and high fuel consumption.

Crankshaft sensors come in 4th for Cambiare at ten percent. These will be replaced to resolve hard-starting, hesitation and rough-running problems.
