Hello everyone I bought a 58 plate antara in November within 2 months light came on pointing to an emission problem vauxhall replaced egr valve happy days i thought got car home well pleased , then the mrs took it out in the evening and light came on again not so good, any way took it back following morning and now there saying they need to replace dpf , which is now on back order and should arrive in 14 days . The only thing that bothers me is that the car has only 20000 miles on should this be happening at this early stage had a 05 diesel vectra and had no probs with that any information would be appreciated

Seems to me these dpf's are a bit of a problem if your not doing many miles pity the salesman don't say anything about them before you part with your cash thanks for your replies
