Here's an example fault on the NISSAN Murano (2009-)

What to look for:

When you test drive the vehicle check for the DPF warning light on the dashboard. It comes on when the car is started and goes out soon after.

What it means:

If this light stays on it means there is a problem with the Diesel Particulate Filter. This is a device, which removes harmful particulates from the exhaust and keeps the C02 emissions low. If the car is often driven in town, or for small journeys the DPF does not get hot enough to burn off the particulate deposits. This can put the engine into ‘fail safe’ mode, which greatly limits the performance of the car until the fault is repaired. To have the repair carried out will also necessitate replacing the oil filter and the engine oil. Nissan may not perform this repair under warranty.

What to do

If you find this fault and the car is at a main dealer and within warranty (3 years/60,000 miles) dealer then insist that the repair is carried out as part of the deal. Otherwise try to negotiate £250 off of the price of the car.
