Thumbs up New owner

Hi - I'm picking up a 2017 DS4 (1.6 diesel) very soon, is there anything I need to be looking out for regarding expected problems, (Hopefully none). I'll be doing about 600+ miles a week, predominantly motorway driving.
Thanks

Welcome to the forum. Nothing specific comes to mind to worry about.

The turbo on the 1,6 is the only thing I've heard of as a weaknesss, though not read of many failures on here.


What's the mileage on it?

I'm hoping I can get somewhere near the published figures for MPG, which was part of the reason I've changed from a 2.0l diesel GTC. Time will tell !!

12,400....I was having DPF issues on my 2.0l GTC so I'm hoping the DS won't have the same.

The citroen solutiuon to the dpf seems to work a lot better. Mine is the older 2.0HDi and does about 250 miles a week, no issue.



Not sure exactly what system the newers cars have as they run adblue, mine only has eolys. The french seem to handle the dpf better than most.
