Having had my Antara 2.2 cdti for just over a year the DPF regens approx. every 180-200 miles had it into the dealers today because the said it was regening to often they contacted Vauxhall technical for advise and there reply was that it was acceptable and is doing what its supposed to. So I will be car hunting tomorrow

Does the mokka not have the same DPF system as the antara then?
Unless its petrol yes it will. Hopefully its not a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire.

If i remember they do one of those small petrol eco engines with a turbo which is all the rage with manufacturers these days and it looked quite good on paper.

the mokka has a different DPF system the reason why Vauxhall said that regens of around 200 miles were acceptable is that the antara has a unique system unlike all the other systems fitted to the Vauxhall range I know people who have various Vauxhall models and the don't even know there on the car the just run in the background also ive had other cars with DPF and never any trouble

The chaps on the Mokka forum and Insignia forum moan about regens as much as people on here, so I am not totally convinced. However it is a smaller, lighter car, so it will certainly use less fuel anyway.

Yip as has been said read any forum and you will get bad reports on any make and model.

Its nice to know we are not alone with DPF problems but I know a few people who would say that its only Vauxhall that has these problems.

DPF will always be there but its how its managed I just got fed up with 200 mile regens if it would have been around 500 miles per regen I probablywould have kept Antara

So what's the difference with the DPF's you would think they would be the same with the same manufacturer, strange

wilma08 it was Vauxhall main uk technical said that the antara was a stand alone system personally I think the have got the set up wrong on the antara and I don't think anyone who has an antara would be happy regening every 200 miles

The dealer I dealt with they have known regens happening a lot less mileage and he said it is out of their hands as Vauxhall uk are happy with that and are not going to do anything about it

on a brighter didn't loose much money on Antara

Did you trade it back into them we usually use we buy any car .com as we seem to get a better price with them other than the dealers who seem to be tight
