Rock and a hard place?
For several months now I have been trying to find a diesel replacement for our aging petrol V70. Thought I had found it at last, then I learnt of the dreaded DPF, let me say at this point that I am looking for a car no more than 2 years old, which will be possibly our last car.
My daily drive is no more than 8 miles with a caravan tow of perhaps 100 miles omce a month. I have no wish to have a 30-40 minute thrash in 5th gear up the motor way, or to pay upwards of £200.00 to have the DPF cleaned. Caravaning can be expensive enough as it is without the additional costs for this procedure. The vehicle I had thought of buying is an X-Trail Tekna 173. I think the 'van is going to have to go as I am not prepared to pay a good sum of money to buy something I have been advised that I will have problems with.
I know this has been covered in previous posts (I have read them and numerous others on different foums) still, I welcome thoughts from others who perhaps have other ideas for me to consider.
