    My car is going to have the DPF problem fixed in the morning. How long should it take to undergo this repair? The service guy said it would take two or three hours to do. He did mention the software update that Honda have issued.

    The reason I need to know is that I need to leave the pup with some friends, and a three hour job means I'll be out for almost five hours.

    You need to get it done one way or another can't they pick the car up and drop it back ?

    I'm going to have it done in the morning. It's too far to expect the dealer to collect and return. I need to let my friends know how long I'll be and they can make arrangements about Jamie.

    Robbie, I've had 5 regens done and the maximum time taken was 1 hour. You shouldn't have any bother once the ECU update is done.

    Went with it this morning and it took about two hours to complete the job. This also included a wash and interior hoover.

    Well satisfied and the engine appeared so much more responsive.

    Excellent the new Updates would fix the short term DPF regeneration errors and false\positive reporting pending the big update.

    As my CR-V is 101% fine, no issues - should I enquire about getting my ECU updated etc?

    Or shall I leave things alone?!
