    Default What are the chances ?

    Hi All,

    I have had my 55 plate Vectra Estate 1.9 CDTi for just under a year now which i bought from a dealer with one year NetworkQ warranty with 42,000 miles on the clock.
    I thought id do a bit of an info hunt about the cars warranty history from before i took ownership and contacted the garage from where it was registered to find that it has already had the DPF,Inlet Manifold, EGR Valve,and the Air-Con Compressor replaced under the manufacturers warranty which i thought was absolutly fantastic,but what are the chances of the major items failing again such as the DPF and the Inlet ? has anyone had to have theirs replaced more than once ??

    Cheers

    James

    i have had the dmf and clutch replaced twice, first time due to oil misting from a leak on the bottom end, then due to a vibration (even though i had a noise from the alternator)

    tbh the DPF is how you drive it - needs to be driven hard from time to time.

    DMF are just owners luck and inlet manifold like the DPF - occasional hard driving should help keep them clean.

    Never had an EGR/Inlet or DPF fail on me in 4 CDTi 150's and nearly 200,000 miles. My current car has had a new DMF though due to the way it was driven before I had it.
