Hi all, I have a late 2017 2.0 TDI with around 120,000 kms (75000 miles) on the clock. Last Saturday I started the car and as soon as I took off there was no power in the car then suddenly it would lurch / jerk and again no power. The day prior everything was working fine. I had the car towed to my mechanic who found it was a clogged DPF and they managed to do a forced regeneration and got it cleared.

My question is shouldn't there be a warning or caution light (usually a yellow exhaust type logo) in the dash? The user manual shows there is a light for clogged particulate filter yet in my car when I turn the key to ignition there is absolutely no light for a particulate filter! It would be handy to have a warning before the car gets as bad as it did.
