The last incident was on Monday when following a cycle of the DPF regeneration, I got an oil warning light illuminated.
I've taken the car to the dealer who tells me it needs an oil and filter change (Cost £165 !!!!). When I queried this - well you would, wouldn't you - he tells me that the regeneration of the DPF will frequently ccontaminate the oil; especially if the cycle is inerupted as it is almost bound to be for sound practical reasons). I'm told that interim oil changs between services should be expected.
It seems to me that the Antara should be a really nice, capable car but has been spoiled by Vauxhall installing a largely unnecessary and grossly inefficient component i.e. the DPF, which comes close to making the car not fit for purpose.
Vauxhall Driver Assist tell me that the above situation is considered by Vauxhall to be satisfactory. I find this quite unacceptable.
I've heard that some sort of chip can be fitted that will help to remedy the above. If so, why isn't Vauxhall fitting it?? Does such a chip impact on the warranty??
Is my experience fairly typical?
