  • 1GD 2.8 DPF Class Action

    Did I hear right, multi million $$$ class action launched against Toyota Australia for "faulty" DPF system.
    Going back to 2015 release models.

    About time. The system is faulty. Toyota should have sorted it.

          The switch does nothing unless the dpf is about 180% full.

            What I find interesting is that the same engine in the UK and EU does not have DPF but instead has the adblue which from what I have read has less issues

              In Europe the 1GD has DPF+SCR (adblue). But as long as I know there are no major issues with the DPF here... May bé different software configuration or better quality of diésel...

                Thanks for the correction regarding the DPF I saw this article that Toyota here are looking at introducing the adblue as well https://mr4x4.com.au/toyota-expected...ll-out-adblue/
