fun little car but like the ka in this age bracket  it may have rust . give it a really good look over and take on a good run over speed bumps & do a stop start on a hill to make sure the clutch is ok.

if you do get it hope your wife enjoys it.  or perhaps look at the pug 206cc

it's a computer check light that your on about that runs an initial check of main electronic components and it should go off within a couple of seconds so i would take car back to get it checked out

as it's indicating you have a problem.


the particulate filter warning light on indicating a partial blockage of the filter in the exhaust system so it sounds like the filter needs changing.


It should be possible to start a complete regeneration and clear the
warning light by driving for 10 minutes or so at speeds greater than

If the regeneration is unsuccessful the extra fuel injected will not
burn and will drain into the sump.  Oil quality will deteriorate as a
result of this and the level will rise.  It is important that you check
that the oil level does not increase above the maximum level on the
dipstick as diesel engines can run on excess engine oil – often to the
point of destruction.


If you continue to ignore warnings and soot loading keeps increasing
then the car won’t run properly and the most likely outcome will be that
you will have to get a new DPF costing at least £1000.
