Don't do it!

Part exchange it with a petrol one and go for trips with the money you will need to pay to the exhaust butcher and the wannabe ECU brogrammer.

Unless you have a friendly corrupt MOT garage that can let it go through and you cannot care any less about anybody else.

To make the DPF happy you need to drive with at least 9mph, not driving less than 10 minutes and not idle for long time.

All that is so easy to achieve and if you cannot, you should rethink whether you really need any type of car.

He has the third generation car. So he may be lucky with a sensor for automatic stopping and other stuff the new car does, being blocked with dirt. The word system seems to indicate something non mechanical.

I had an oil pressure warning light come on at about 90K miles. Turned out that the oil strainer had become blocked (dealer blamed lower quality supermarket diesel!) but resulted in needing a new turbo  :(

Mazda did make a small contribution towards the cost of replacement despite being well out of warranty so could have been worse but still cost £££'s!

It does not sound safe to drive it. What did the dealer say?

Check the owners manual what can cause this warning.

If the oil pressure light comes on, then it will be too late. It does not sound like the oil sensor is related to the vehicle system.

Hi Ken,

Just to update you that Mazda have replaced my Turbo & de-coked my car for free under their good will policy.

Thanks for all your help and advice as I used your case to back up my argument that the turbo had a manufacturer fault.

cheers Peter

Good morning!
I've got a mazda 6 2015 2.2D automatic Sport Nav 89k miles. One week ago an warning light come up saying "vehicle system malfunction". I've been to mazda dealer and they reckon that is oil pressure low...but not the oil pressure light show me on the dash..obviously mazda says that they need couple days to investigate the car and about 300£ only for diagnoses. Yesterday I went to another garage..he diagnosed  twice..he couldn't find something wrong..Just to eliminate one of the causes we've change Oil pressure sensor.. but nothing changed...after few hours driving that light(little yellow triangle) still coming up. I can mention the engine is working good when the light is on..every time I've stopped the car the warning light reset! I am waiting for yours opinions, please..Can I still use the car? Thank you

A lot of people are getting confused with the V5 statement of previous owners as it does not count the current one. But it is an easy trick for the dealer to uptalk by selectively using the information. It is the same for the service stamps. He found 8 services with Mazda and he is selling that.

It is amazing how he sells it for £2K+ of profit plus the finance and warranty commision. There was no way he could make such profit with cash buy. He is basically selling at approved used price to people who live near to him.

As you say, the car is rusty and when you part exchanged it, they could not sell it and it went down the auction route and now it is on sale for a profit.
