DPF on 64 plate clio?

I have the 1.5 dCi clio and from what I can tell from the handbook (don't know anything about cars except witchcraft happens under the bonnet) it has a DPF and I have heard some horror stories about them and what can happen to them.

So where do I stand with this?
What are the usual problems that might occur?
And need they be an expensive problem?
And how can they be avoided?

I use the motorway regularly for work, but only for about 10 - 15 minutes at a time. Something which I am told helps maintain the DPF as long as youre between 2000 and 3000 revs for I dont know what distance or time but over 40mph?

So any info from someone who knows would be handy.

Thanks.

Re: DPF on 64 plate clio?

Hello.

You'll be fine. As long as you don't just do short stop/start journeys all the time, the DPF filter will sort itself out. From time to time, you will feel the engine hesitate momentarily or you might detect a short-lived burning smell - both these are the filter cleaning itself out. I've never had any problems with mine in 51,000 miles.

How are you finding the new dCi Clio, by the way? I will probably get one in the next year but I am waiting for the mid-term facelift to come out. I don't want to spend lots of monety on a new car that is only current for a year or so.

I'm enjoying it quite a lot. Especially now I've decided to turn the eco mode off. Still getting about 650 miles to a tank and it's got a considerable amount of extra power under the right foot. Can't really fault it for anything.
