Does the Mazda 6 suffer from DPF problems?

I am looking to buy a Mazda 6 and have seen a 2009 deisel model for £7000 at a dealer with only 14,000 miles on the clock. The car is in immaclulate condition: is £7000 a lot for a 2009 car and should i be worried about DPF problems considering the low mileage?

Yes you should be. Lot of DPF and oil strainer problems with this engine.
