Thanks for the replies guys.
Appreciate learning more about this. All sounds quite grey with latest Paj's with DPF's.

Look forward to hearing what we need to look out for on our NT with a passive DPF too as per
nj swb.

Cheers,
Sam

No idea myself. There has been a couple of reports of NS like symptoms on the NT here on the forum and I have been asked privately by a couple of non forum members who were having issues with NT DPF's. I'm not on top of it, as I don't have a dpf, therefore didn't put a lot of effort into understanding the issues or resolution. I just mention I have heard of NT dpf issues, so I dont think the passive version is the magic bullet. All being equal, there is far, far less evidence of NT dpf issues compared to the auto NS.

There are issues with the Ranger DPF, but not related to failure to burn. The problem is its propensity to collect grass etc and then ignite when the burn happens. There is a recall to correct this but there is then another problem. My son recently bought a Ranger and had underbody protection added. Trouble is, the protection Ford adds is so bulky it prevents the underbody protection from fitting.

I thinks it’s fair to call the NX +Oct 16 builds, active DPF equipped. I have a 2017 NX and love it. I have had no problems with the DPF and generally speaking do not know that it exists. We do short and long trips in the Paj as it’s our only car. The only times I have known the DPF is there is when I have driven into the garage and closed the door behind me and smelt a burning smell and heard the DPF cooling down(contracting) as must have been in the middle of an active burn when switched off.

As we know there is no legal way of avoiding a DPF in +16 (Euro5/6) diesel equipped cars from any manufacturer. I like to justify the DPF existing by thinking just perhaps it will avoid another family member from getting cancer. The exhaust is noticeably cleaner and less smelly than other family member Pajero’s (NS and NW), and other diesel vehicles in the family.

I am very aware of the NS Pajero issues as the family member who had a NS had frequent failures, and had the EGR system and inlet manifold replaced under warranty, and on another occasion the manifold was acid cleaned. The NS was sold early to get rid of the frequent issues.

As we are approaching 2 years since NXs became available with DPFs, and as the 4N15 based Pajero Sport and Tritons also have DPFs, based on the lack of negative information I think it’s fair to say Mitsubishi has learnt something as they are definitely better than the NS days, and better than what Toyota is seeing with the 2.8 in Hilux, Prado and fortuner.

Back to my Paj, as I said I am happy with the DPF to date. My fuel consumption is higher than what I think it should be but I don’t think the DPF is causing that.
