Citroen C3: Driving recommendations / On flooded roads

We strongly advise against driving on flooded roads, as this could cause serious damage to the engine or gearbox, as well as to the electrical systems of your vehicle.

Citroen C3. On flooded roads

  • If you are obliged to drive on a flooded road:
  • check that the depth of water does not exceed 15 cm, taking account of waves that might be generated by other users,
  • deactivate the Stop & Start function,
  • drive as slowly as possible without stalling. In all cases, do not exceed 6 mph (10 km/h),
  • do not stop and do not switch off the engine.

On leaving the flooded road, as soon as safety conditions allow, make several light brake applications to dry the brake discs and pads. If in doubt about the state of your vehicle, contact a CITROËN dealer or a qualified workshop.

    Important!

    Never leave the engine running in a closed space without sufficient ventilation. Internal combustion engines emit toxic exhaust gases such as carbon monoxide...

    In case of towing
