  1. This is my very first audi I have ever had. I’ve been driving for 18 years. All I have had is bad luck so one month after buying the vehicle the DPF light came on . It went into limp mode .I had no idea what a dpf was ! since this happened , I’ve learnt lot about DPfs . Basically it got blocked and I paid to have it unblocked problem when away. I had a full Service also done on the vehicle. About a week after having a full service the DPF light came on again even though I have been taking the car in Long Journeys occasionally the light still came on and it blocked again put my car into limp mode. I took the car to the garage who serviced it and they advised me that I needed a new DPF. I then paid out £1200 for a new DPF to be installed the carjourneys occasionally the light still came on and it blocked again put my car into limp mode. I took the car to the garage who serviced it and they advised me that I needed a new DPF. I then paid out £1200 for a new DPF to be installed in the car this took them all day………,! Problem solved. A couple weeks later the DPF light has came on again. So I took it for a drive to try and get the light off the light went off black smoke came out the back and then the coil light started to flash and then it went into limp mode again. I took the car to the garage I’m so angry.The mechanic got the car out of limp mode took it for a drive and said there was nothing wrong. I have since then had to take it back for a second time to ask him to get the car out of limp mode . This is stressing me out I feel as though the problem is not being addressed and it’s just getting worse . maybe it didn’t need a new DPF in the beginning,?? I have asked the mechanic if he checked the sensors ect . He said he had checked everything else?? If it does it again I’m taking it down there straight away. I am a support worker and this is taking up so much of my time.I really don’t know what to do about this car If it does it again whilst I’m out of town , limp mode is so hard work .🤦‍♀️. I am a support worker and this is taking up so much of my time,. I really don’t know what to do about this car. ???Can anyone help me please????????
