I brought an A3 2010 2.0 sport back a week ago and was really happy with it until the DPF light came on yesterday. The car has done 41000 miles. I looked in the manual and did the 15 min at 2000 revs it advised and the light went off.
I have been reading up on the problem since and feel a bit worried now that I'm going to be plagued by this problem.
I was on a short trip yesterday but I had done a 100 run in it the day before so it seems strange it happened, although maybe at the garage I brought it from they had been taking it out for lots of short trips for test drives etc.
My question is now I successfully regenerated it will that likely be the end of the problem or will it keep happening? To give you an idea of my driving i do a daily motorway journey of 12 miles x 2 to work with regular longer runs of 100 miles +.
I phoned the dealer I brought it from and they were actually quite good and offered for me to bring it back for a look, however I recently sold my Porsche to change to this car because I was fed up of constant mechanical niggles and repairs and so I have bought the A3 with a view to hassle free driving!
Its the first Audi I've owned, any help would be appreciated
