    Just bought a 2.0 tdi dpf s line (2008)

    Hi guys,

    Just bought the missus a 2.0 tdi avant. This is our first diesel, but we only do about 6,000 miles a year. Should I be worried about the DPF system with our mileage? BTW it's a BRE engine if that makes any difference.

    Cheers.

    The DPF issue is down to how the car is driven rather than the absolute annual mileage. If she only does lots of short journeys In traffic) then the filter will clog quickly and it is unlikely that the DPF cleaning process will complete properly ultimately resulting in it failing. If on the other hand she does a smaller number of longer journeys then the DPF cleaning process will complete normally and not be a problem. Suggest that periodically you use it for a longer journey at high speed to clean out the system (hardly a hardship as it is what the car is designed for, seeing you live in Kingston a good blast down the A3 to Guildford and back should do it), and if the warning light comes on follow the instructions in the handbook.
