    Never had a diesel car, and like the look of the CR-V and coming HR-V.
    I live 3.5 miles from work along a dual carrigeway. So a week of driving would clock up very little mileage. I understand that the region would take place ever 300 miles? So what happens? A light comes on and notifies you of the requirement of it is needed? So then do I have time to go on a longer journey, the weekend? Normally I am off shopping on the weekends etc which would involve a 30 miler etc...

    As you can see, I am a little confused..

    I wouldn't buy a diesel with a DPF. It really does sound like you shouldn't either!

    Your journeys area too short. Petrol is better for you.
