Hi, a friend of mine has had several DPF woes with his Ford Focus 58 TDCI. Unfortunately, he wrote it off two weeks ago when he hit a deer. As luck would have it, he had just spent a small fortune on getting the DPF changed. Now it has been written off, his repair work has been futile.
He is looking at purchasing a smaller Fiesta. He has seen a nice 1.6 TFCi Zetec Climate.
It is a 56 plate with low mileage (26k). Can anyone tell me if this sort of model comes with a blasted DPF?
My 59 plate Focus 1.8 is a year newer than his focus of late, has an older lynx engine and does not have a dpf. Ideally he wants one like mine which does not as althogh tax is cheap, the repair bills on the dpf are huge and he does high mileage.
