Will the car tell me when the Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) needs replacing?

There is no replacement interval for Diesel Particulate Filters but generally after 90,000 (fitted on models up to 2009) to 120,000 miles (from 2010 models onward) there is a service check to ascertain their serviceability. If it needs replacement then it counts as a service item.
