Does the new DS still have the oil dilution problems?

I have read about the problem on here. Does anyone know if the issue has been designed out of the new model. Thanks

As far as I’m aware (not on here so much as in the past) it’s not been designed out as you put it.

I’m sure others will be able to offer more information.

Here we go: it's starting with the Evoque, just like last time.

Surely if they were having considerable numbers of cars suffering from oil dilution and service issues they would of designed a solution. If they have not bothered then they must consider the problem to be minor and not related to many vehicles.
