Hi all.I've just joined the forum to share some info which may be of help to others.


About 10 months ago we bought a 2012 AWD 2.2cdti 163ps Exclusive. It only had 20k on the clock, but we still opted for a two year warranty at £500.


Driving steadily we achieve an indicated 40.6 mpg and a DPF cycle runs itself every 500 miles.


Last month at 29k miles I suddenly noticed quite rough idling with a degree of vibration at rest. Increasing the revs to 1200 eliminated the vibration (which also seemed worse when the engine was hot). The car drove as normal, but the lumpy idle remained for a couple of weeks before I took it in for investigation. The garage observed the 'lumpiness' and agreed there was a problem - probably DMF or injectors. A call from them the next day confirmed wear of the DMF and necessary to replace. The job was completed under warranty (at probably about £700+) and the car was returned two days later. Glad to say that the engine now idles as smooth as silk now and it hasn't cost me a penny (other than the initial warranty).


Given the horror stories surrounding the DPF, DMF and poor consumption I thought I'd share this info' in case it can help others.

Glad to see it was worth taking out the warranty.

I have an idea my DMF is on its way out. Covered 80k and lifetime warranty. The vibration you describe is exactly the same as mine.
Going to try my local VX dealer and see what they say.

My wife says that I never listen or something like that !

If a garage does not have the correct tools for this task then perhaps another garage - with the correct tools - should be entrusted with the work to demonstrate that they have fixed an Antara DMF before?

That's a worry - are any of them Vauxhall dealers?
