Is the Mazda 6 Tourer automatic known for DPF problems?

I'm thinking of buying a Mazda 6 Tourer, but the auto version that I want is only available with a diesel engine and 19-inch wheels. Have the DPF problems been sorted and is the ride ok on these wheels?

I’ve now done 7,500 miles in a Mazda 6 Skyactiv 150d automatic saloon on the 17-inch wheels. Ride on the 19s is not too bad, but they can be noisy on some surfaces. There should be no DPF problems from these exhaust-manifold-in-head engines.
